    September 17, 2013  |   By tiejustice

    Version: ESET Smart Security 6 6.0.306

    Pros

    works better then Norton 360 and Malwarebytes ( missed 71 Trojans and virus) on my mothers laptop (facebook games)

    it works well as it find more then other programs.

    gaming mode works well to.

    it can scan plug and play hard drives and networked hard drives thank god for that, now i know my back up back up is now virus trojan free.

    find it quicker than Norton and use's less on the possessor

    Anti theft really good for laptop if it is ever stolen

    Facebook tweeter media scanner

    Cons

    none i have found yet

    Summary

    its not that bad a price for me as i have 3 laptops all now with anti theft and ESET for 3 years as it had a 25% off that there still doing it

    norton was 1/2 the price but only 1 year cover so i have gained 1 year free ESET in the long run, and its much better than norton which let me down on my other laptops.

    "Beyond Excellent"

    April 24, 2013  |   By iamconan

    Version: ESET Smart Security 6 6.0.306

    Pros

    Installs quickly, never had a problem with it, uses minimal resources and works.

    Cons

    none to date

    Summary

    Have used ESET since the early days, and moved up from each ESET SMART SECURITY edition. Firewall works great and is easy to use. It uses very minimal resources, making the computer faster. Never had a problem during initial install or use, over the years. If a problem does arise, it is taken care of during the next auto update. Compared to the other security suites I have used over the years, ESET is light years ahead.
