"The stability is okay.""Very easy to use the front end and the UI is very good.""The licensing cost is very less for NeoLoad. It is user-friendly and easy to understand because they have created so many useful functionalities. When I started working with this tool, we just had to do the initial assessment about whether this tool will be able to support our daily work or not. I could easily understand it. I didn't have to search Google or watch YouTube videos. In just 15 to 20 minutes, I was able to understand the tool.""The scripting is really user-friendly and the reporting is very good.""It offered us an easy to use, limited code option for end-to-end performance testing.""The test cases are quite easy to build and to maintain. This is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us. It's the reason why they changed from JMeter to NeoLoad.""I feel that the codeless part, the dynamic value capture part is quite easy in NeoLoad compared to other tools.""The most valuable feature is flexibility, as it connects to all of the endpoints that we need it to."

More Tricentis NeoLoad Pros →

"The latest versions are often unstable.""It would be better if we could use it without having the technical skills to run the scripting test.""I would like to see XPath made more reliable so that it can be used in all browsers.""Whenever an object is changed or something is changed in the UI, then we have to refactor the code.""Could have additional readability and abstraction.""There should be standardized frameworks to build automation.""It would be better to have a simplified way to locate and identify web elements.""It would be very helpful to be able to write scripts in a GUI, rather than depend so heavily on the command line."

More Selenium HQ Cons →

"LoadRunner supports multiple protocols, whereas NeoLoad supports only three protocols. With NeoLoad, we can go for the SAP technology, web-based HTTP, and Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). If I have to simulate .NET application-based traffic, I won't be able to do that. So, protocol support is a limitation for NeoLoad. It should support more protocols.""Most people focus on HTTPS or TCP, but it would be good to have support for a variety of different protocols.""I would like to see support for auto-correlations.""We would like NeoLoad to be able to support more protocols. Testing can also be a little tricky at times.""Support wasn't able to solve a technical issue.""Sometimes it's complicated to maintain the test cases. It's much easier than in JMeter, however. I'm not sure if this depends so much on NeoLoad, or is more based on the environment that we are testing.""The SAP area could be improved.""LoadRunner offers a full protocol, whereas, with this product, only a few of the protocols are supported - not all."
