Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Testing across devices and browsers without maintaining that inventory is invaluable.""BrowserStack has lots of devices to choose from.""The setup was quite simple. The website easily explains how to set it up and if you want to integrate it with BMP tools there are online simple step tutorials.""The product guides and resources are extensive and very helpful.""I like that it offers full device capability.""The main core concept behind this product is, it takes the overhead of maintaining all of your devices or particular computers. It continuously adds the latest devices that are coming into the market.""It just added some flexibility. There was nothing that improved our coding standards, etc. because all of our UIs were functional before we tried it.""Local testing for products with no public exposure is an advantage in development."

"This tool is really good. We don't need to write any code, but it writes the code itself, only record and play. And it is simple, and it is not heavy; I mean, it doesn't have a large footprint, and it works well for us.""The solution is very scalable.""The most valuable feature is stability.""It is quite stable, and it has got very user-friendly features, which are important in terms of maintaining our scripts from a long-term perspective. It is very stable for desktop-based, UI-based, and mobile applications. Object repositories and other features are also quite good.""The cost is the most important factor in this tool.""Integrates well with other products.""The most valuable features are the object repository.""The most valuable feature is the Object Model, where you can directly pull up the object as a global or a local."

Cons
"Customer support could be better. We tried to implement and explore this product with the vendor or reseller's help, but we haven't had any good response about the product.""Sometimes BrowserStack is really slow and devices are not loading. it is really annoying and that's why we bought several newer devices because sometimes it's affecting us a lot.""Adding better integration with frameworks, particularly testing frameworks like Robot, would be of more value to customers and make their jobs easier.""I would like for there to be more integration with BrowserStack and other platforms.""Connectivity can sometimes mar the testing experience.""While I was testing I was not 100% sure a that was properly mimicking the browsers or not. We had some issues with a browser, and the reason was the browser itself does not provide any support. If the local system does not provide any support, I think this was the problem. There should be better integration with other solutions, such as JIRA."

"In the next release, I would like to see integration with different cloud-based tools such as Azure.""Integration with other tools can become a costly exercise.""UFT Developer is good, but it requires high-level development skills. Scripting is something that everybody should know to be able to work with this product. Currently, it is very development intensive, and you need to know various scripting languages. It would be good if the development effort could be cut short, and it can be scriptless like Tosca. It will help in more adoption because not every team has people with a software engineering background. If it is scriptless, the analysts who wear multiple hats and come from different backgrounds can also use it in a friendly manner. It is also quite expensive.""I have to keep the remote machine open while the tests are running, otherwise, it leads to instability.""It would be improved by adding a drag-and-drop interface to help alleviate the coding.""In the next release, I would like to see the connectivity improved to be less complex and more stable.""Easier connectivity and integration with SAP would be helpful.""With Smart Bear products generally, you can have only one instance of the tool running on a machine."

  • "It is cheap, but if you take the enterprise license, it is valid for both software items."
  • "The licensing is very expensive, so often, we don't have enough VMs to run all of our tests."
  • "Its cost is a bit high. From the licensing perspective, I am using a concurrent license. It is not a seed license. It is something that I can use in our network. It can also be used by other users."
