I have the need to share my desktop with my clients, generally this is in a 1 vs 1 situation.  I have tried and was disappointed with the stutteryness of it.  Obviously upload is a huge fact, however I am on cable and get approx 9-10 Mbps consistently.  So the second factor would be that anymeeting is based in the US and so circumnavigation is a factor.

Are there any products that people reccomend for 1v1 desktop sharing.  I do not want to limit myself to Cloud based products only if there are better options.  This is for sales of a product, so the last thing I want is stuttery slow screen casting.

TeamViewer. Super easy for you and customers. You can brand it if you want. You can do ad hoc or set up a set of computers you regularly control. Free for personal use.

Skype does this as well for free along with Teamviewer. Although with Skype you also get the benefit of Video/Audio conferencing.

Do whatever you want to do man.

I believe teamviewer has some kind of voice and/or video conferencing but Ive never tried them, I've always been on Skype while using team-viewer

I like by LogMeIn, browser based for the "viewer" end so no software install needed.

The software install for the "presenter" is small, easy to use and deals with multiple monitors pretty well.

Lots of options, I am going to test a few beofre next week. I do like the idea of the not having to have my customers install software, however frustrating the servers generally go to the US, which isnt always the best connection..
