Lol. The 360 you see on AV Comparatives and AV-Test is NOT 360 Totally security. It is the pure Chinese versions. Just click the link in AV Comparatives and it will lead you to the Chinese version. Not the 360 version shown on here. Also 360 has a major flaw which I brought up and they claim they re working on it. 360 does not work in a standard account. Panda, Avira and Avast are the top free antivirus programs.

Chinese version or not, they typically use the same tech/engine.

But i rather install 360 then avast. After Avast upgraded their antivirus this year, they became 200% effective, they will disable your internet connection so you can no longer get a virus from the net :D I did try the latest version of avast, but... just read the comments on their facebook page, you'll get my point

Meh... Avira has been very consistent on its performance as per reviewed by AV-Comparatives and AV-Test. Ive been using it for yearssssss like 10-15 years. During those items i have tried avast, avg and other free but always got back to avira due to its reliability.

As for 360...Why would i replace AVIRA now knowing since the last couple of years it has been very consistent in its rating.

July 2014
Avira: 99.7
360: 99.2

April 2014 home users
Avira: 5 star protection rating
360: 4.5 star protection rating.

Besides, why would i risk my data to the chinese? LMAO!

You don't have to switch to anything. I was just giving my opinion is all.
From your analogy: You're "risking" it to the Germans with Avira. ;) Also, every time you hook a computer to the internet you risk exposing your data to whomever has the skills to look.

I utilized Avira years ago and it was very good for me then. I am currently using and testing 360 on various computers. It has it's own engine as well as Avira and Bitdefender engines as a choice to install. Working great so far.

I agree. I replaced Avira with 360 Total Security after reading about it on Neowin. It's great with both Avira and Bitdefender engines installed. I haven't noticed any slowdown either.
