I am kinda looking for a new Internet Suite.I currently have Kaspersky PURE (but it is kinda heavy on resources and SafeMoney/Virtual Keyboad is blocking on IE-sites).

I used to have KIS2014 installed, but upgraded to PURE (same price, more features). I guess this was a mistaken.

 

So, back to start with my research.

I found that Kaspersky KIS/PURE, ESET Security 7 and Bitdefender IS kinda have the same detection rates, real-world performance etc etc.

 

Is this right?

And is one of these suites just "personal preference" to install, since they are all equally performing in protecting my computer(s)...

ESET is the best among all of those in terms of detection rates, memory usage, etc. I've been using ESET for years, never had a problem. Convinced all my friends also to switch over, no issues reported from them also. :)

I use BitDefender and overall heard it is the best along with Norton.

Been using MSE and lately been running Avast Premium too. MSE does let things though so if you are planning on using just MSE, install something to run alongside it.

save the money, choose something free if you really need it. Antiviruses are so 00's

I couldn't agree more, try the latest Avast.

My opinion also!

 

To many good, free one's out there to be paying for bells and whistles that are next to useless!

Pricey, but ESET has always been my choice as well.

Currently running Outpost Security Suite 9(trial version) and liking it.  tried AVG Business Edition last month, and liked it too, AVG seems to have a deal on just now, but it's not for the "full version"

So basically ESET and Bitdefender are quite alike given the tests

Though I sense here a little preference for ESET ;)
