Pros
Splashtop I think is perfectly priced and excellent quality. Having the ability to view and remote assist a mobile phone user included is a real value add for my clients.

TL

Todd L.

This is really important when we are doing an installation and don't have direct access to the server or workstation. The product is also a very good price compared to other products.

HF

Heidi F.

Excellent and appropriately priced alternative to the overpriced competing products.

TL

Cons
Lastly, when Splashtop is configured to remove the background (wallpaper / picture) on the remote device you're connecting to, it tends to leave the background blank when you disconnect.

I don't find it to be that much of a performance impact, so we simply leave the option to remove the remote device background disabled.

Can have some troubles moving files between computers etc.

Using Splashtop during pandemic

Reviewed 2 years ago

During the pandemic lock-down, our IT department had to continue provide technical support to students and faculty who continue having their classes online, this tool arrived on time.

Pros

Providing support to users who uses Windows based computers is straight forward. End users that never used Splashtop before did not have any problems sending us the 9-digit code in a short time. What helps is that the remote software is not heavy and the UI is easy to understand.

Cons

Sometimes I find myself using a Linux based computer and need to provide remote help, sadly I could not find a Linux version for the agent side.

Vendor response

Hi Miguel, Thank you for the rating and review. Our goal is to provide the simplest and fastest remote access and remote support solution at an extremely affordable price. A good news to share with you that we do support Linux. Here's the link for your reference: https://www.splashtop.com/downloads#sos If you need any further assistance, please contact us at customer-success@splashtop.com. Our entire team is at your disposal. Sincerely, Antonia Wang Splashtop Customer Success team

The solution we were looking for.

Reviewed a year ago

We've tried several products over the past few years and they we either missing important features or were priced too high. Splashtop SOS resolved this for us by offering a full feature set at a reasonable price. We've been able to support non-managed clients which has resulted in an additional revenue stream. Our overall experience with Splashtop SOS has been great!

Pros

- Easy to use / deploy for on-demand support customers. - Customers with little to no technical skills can quickly launch the app. - Contains all the features needed to remote support and resolve technical issues. - Allows us to support "on-demand" clients that are not under contract. - Software has a mobile app that allows us to resolve phone issues for the client.

Cons

We have been using this software for over a year without issue. There is a lighter version included with our RMM tool that lacks a few of the features. However, upon learning about the SOS version, it includes the full feature set we need.

Splashtop

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with their free trial was not a good one. Not easy to use and support was not very helpful. Also just installing the software did not remove everything. But I found out where to do that from others online not the Splashtop people.

Pros

I can't say there was anything I liked about this software. The software was not easy to use and came with a few hicupps.

Cons

This software I installed the trial and had issues with it from the start. I tried support and it took a while for them to get back to me so I eventually went on to another software that turned out great.

Splashtop for the win!

Reviewed 3 months ago

Very positive experience. I use it very frequently and rely on it for my business. Never needed tech support but business support has been excellent.

Pros

Splashtop Business aka Splashtop SOS does exactly what it says it will. Supported our entire community during lockdown and enabled free licenses. So easy to get users to sos.spalshtop.com with an autodownload and no install, just run it (unless you're a Mac user but thats Macs over zealous, hard to fathom security locks).

Cons

does lack the ability to get a transcript which would be useful, unless I missed it somehere in the UI.
