I am looking to purchase any VPN application mostly for general purposes like watching US Netflix and some other online shows which are not available in my region. 
Please suggest some good trusted options and the reason for it.
Thanks

    I have had success streaming netflix with a lesser known VPN provider called vpnsecure. My primary VPN (PIA) doesn't play well with netflix.

    Although I don't use it, ExpressVPN might be something to look into:

    Based on your criteria (price not being one), I recommend Nord. They have a zero logs policy, implement lots of features, have high speed/reliability, and are one of the best at unblocking netflix.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I am looking for VPN which works with Netflix and in terms of these 5 categories
    1) Security
    2) Speed
    3) Settings
    4) Usage
    5) Stability

    If any of you guys know about these categories in terms of their own VPN, please let me know so I can settle on any one.
    Thanks again

    If it's only for streaming region-locked content it simpler to use just set DNS from that country.
    As an extra bonus that will also work on devices that don't have VPN clients, eg Apple TV.

    ExpressVPN works with Netflix and is by far the fastest VPN I've used.

    It's secure as well:

    I tested Netflix and ran a speed test, it's still the fastest.

    I am using IPVanish, and while it is fast and reliable, Amazon and Netflix do not allow it for viewing streaming material.

    Being with Vodafone in the UK we have the unique problem that our WAN IP can occasionally suggest that we are either in India or the Republic of Ireland!  Which means even streaming UK content can be problematic!  So we actually went for SmartDNSProxy.com so it gives access to VPN services if you need them, but most of the time you can use it to easily spoof your location to DNS servers!  Not having to go the full VPN route tend to mean that it's fast, and when we've used it for Netflix it's been 100%!

    I've been using TorGuard for years.  The customer service is fantastic.  It's a good middle of the road provider and allows up to I think 5 devices logged in with the same account at the same time.  The downtime that I've had in the years that I've been with them is less than an hour total.  Streaming is an add-on, but if you click through https://torguard.net/aff.php?aff=4498 and use coupon code streaming_50 you can get 50% off of every month of Anonymous Proxy, Anonymous VPN, Streaming Bundle.

    express VPN is the best I think but it’s awesome for Netflix US and UK and also Amazon Video it’s expensive but a very good service to have

    I use KeepSolid inc VPN and I have no problem with it. But I do live here in the states and I pay for all my services. The other thing you could look at would be SmartDNS. That helps unlock US Netflix and speed would not be dropped, as they advertise it on their website. I have no use for it but you could check it out! Hope that helps.

    Swiss company you can trust (https://protonvpn.com/about)
    zero logs
    VPN code open sourced (https://protonvpn.com/blog/open-source/)
    Worldwide presence
    They operate the protonmail.com platform as well, pretty secured

    That looks like an excellent idea. The lifetime warranty seems like the best deal but i always have problems with a company going out of business or merging and not honoring the original agreement. I'm interested and going to look into this thanks.

    Windscribe (https://windscribe.com) works great for me and has for years! Found a good deal and subscribed for a 3-year period.

    Keep your eyes from tech sites (9to5Mac for example) that have special deals on subscriptions to VPN services. You can also find some deep discounts if you search on the web too.
