    Any recomendations?
    Been using webex but we don't like. Annually use it 3-4 times, each meeting about 15 users, globally and nationally. Not necessarily the same users each time.

    We used webex for a while and it was a pain in the patootie! We use GoToMeeting now and it works fairly well. Had a connection problem last week but were able to reschedule for the following day and it worked great.

    Webex is still better than Microsoft Live Meeting at least IMO.

    Gotomeeting is quite good as well.

    Do you find the larger the meeting, the more the video and sound degrades?

    Have a look at join.me - it's really simple and easy to use. Even works well on the iPad. We've been using it a lot lately and it just works.

    I use TurboMeeting. You purchase the appliance based on the number of users/rooms you need and that's it. No additional per use charges. It supports Windows and Macs, and has intergrated VOIP. http://www.rhubcom.com/

    I still use dimdim since it is mostly free, has all the services we need. It DID just get acquired by Salesforce.com though, not sure how much they will change it other than just integration

    Given that they don't accept any new customers, I'd think it's likely to change quite a bit. I used it once about a year ago and liked it.

    wow, I did not know that. I guess my login page just goes straight to my account. I had the premium AND a free account, which appaently expired a few weeks ago. bummer, usually an acq. doesn't KILL OFF THE PRODUCT.

    Yeah, I figure there is usually in incorporation, but i didn't figure they would kill off the option of having a free/limited account - which is TOTALLY what drove their growth, customer base and ultimately revenues.
