Would not recommend Buffered VPN

So I've been trying to find the right VPN for me and have been using different VPNs each month to see what their offerings are and how they compare. I'm not a heavy user in that I'm not streaming or anything. I'll download some large files here and there, but they aren't time sensitive so they can be downloaded fast or slow and I don't really care. As long as it's not snails pace.

In November I tried out Buffered VPN. They seemed to have a good offering and I liked that they even had an app for Linux! Or so they claimed...that was my first mistake. After I signed up I find out that the don't actually offer an app for Linux...it's config files. Really? Hey, I know my way around Linux so VPN config files are no big deal, but false advertising on their part. I use it for several weeks and I don't really see anything bad besides the false advertising on the Linux client. I don't do anything like streaming over VPN so I cannot comment on the speed for that, but I can say for my normal usage I did not notice any slow downs.
