So short of starting to run virtual machines, one cannot torrent with the VPN and put the downloading files on a NAS because the NAS is part of the local, non-vpn network.

So I looked into using a SOCKS5 proxy for uTorrent with them, but the PIA support rep told me that's unencrypted, so what's the point?

I think most synology NAS have the ability to become an OpenVPN client, the NAS will tunnel out to the PIA servers. This would make your setup more complicated if you were trying to directly access your NAS via the internet, but if that isnt a concern then dont worry about it. if your home network is a single subnet, 192.168.1.0/24 then connectivity should not be an issue, the hosts will all know they are on same LAN segment.

used hidemyass when I was overseas and streaming was often slow. This seems worth it but I am wondering if the streaming will be faster. Thanks

HTTPS sites use end-to-end encryption, meaning you're actually encrypted inside the encrypted VPN. Generally, HTTPS sites are considered "safe" no matter how you're connected to the internet.
Good to know! Thank you!

LOL at all of you who think your are untraceable.... guess what you are.

Just depends on whether they decide to go after you as an individual..

Bottom line if you are doing normal things there is NO NEED for a VPN at $40 /yr

Stop downloading COPYRIGHTED Materials and ChILD movies

Get on with your life.

Classic that you spend $40 to steal stuff that you did not buy... and sleep with the threat of a hefty lawsuit.

In terms of a VPN service's specs, what am I looking for in order to know whether or not a particular country is accessible? For example, some streaming providers in China won't allow US customers to subscribe. So I guess I would need my IP to show that I'm in China.

So when it says.... "Home Country: United States, and has exit servers in the US, Canada, the UK, Switzerland, Romania, and the Netherlands."

Does this mean I should look elsewhere? I should look for a service that has China as part of the list?

While VPN services are sought out by people who do P2P activities, you skipped over plenty of legitimate things that you can normally do, where a VPN comes in handy:

Quote :
Hide My IP
Browse Anonymously
Public Wifi Security
Identity Protection
Internet Security
Uncensored Access
Prevent Data Theft
Hide My Location

Unblock Websites
FaceNiff and Firesheep
Unblock Facebook
I've bolded some pretty legitimate reasons above. Using this in a public wifi network is great. I use wifi at coffee shops or other such public places on a weekly basis. I usually avoid accessing sensitive accounts during this time, but this will make me feel a bit better should I choose to do so Smilie

Unblocking access to sites, such as facebook, is probably legal, but unethical if it's a company firewall you're bypassing. I'm not a lawyer so I won't say that for sure.

If you don't like this deal or don't need it, "run along." Cool

Why pay when you can use Hamachi for those activities FREE and VPN to your home ISP connection... only reason you PAY is to try to avoid being traced as you are doing illegal downloads or you don't have a clue.

I assume setting up Hamachi requires a few things:
A speedy home ISP connection, a router compatible with it, or a computer capable of setting it up.

DSL services usually have poor uplink speeds, and not everyone has a second computer at home, or a router capable of setting up a VPN.

Also, Hamachi doesn't anonymize nor hide your location.

Also, bypassing regional restrictions is another reason or IP limiting restrictions (number of downloads per hour, or number of videos watched, etc) are other reasons for a VPN service with multiple gateways.

This alone would probably be a great reason for so many people. I'm guessing you've never worked tech support before. If you have, you should know that very many people are barely equipped to use a computer. Expecting them to be able to setup a VPN is like asking a mechanic to fix a component of the International Space Station, while in space.
