5 out of 5 eggsGood

Pros: Simple. No hassle. No problems with the software. Updates itself.
So, is mostly an automatic program which does not need fussing with. No trouble with my system since install.

Cons: None for me personally.

Other Thoughts: May not offer quite top tier protection, though, for my uses, it is fine.

5 out of 5 eggsBest antivirus I've used in my entire life

Pros: I've purchased ESET plenty of times before and have never had any viruses leak through.

I like the firewall on this product, which I've tested myself before with a pentesting operating system, legally (on my own network). It blocked the port scan I ran on the network, effectively making my computer invisible to the attacker (myself). It also will start throwing out a bunch of warnings if there's a duplicate ip address on the network (someone trying to act as a router so they can sniff your traffic; also known as a man in the middle attack).

It's blocked multiple adware installs on software that didn't give me a choice of whether I wanted to install the adware or not.

Doesn't use up a ton of resources (cpu and ram).

Ability to disable firewall and protection if needed for some reason.

Cons: This has nothing to do with this specific product, however I feel is worth mentioning. I recommended smart security to one of my clients who used ESET's website to purchase a copy for 2 years. However for some reason the payment never went through and he contacted customer service to get the issue resolved. He said after waiting more than an hour he finally hung up and told me he wanted to switch back to another antivirus. I really hope that this was just a rare experience that he had, but I can't say for sure whether ESET has good customer service and not everyone has to wait that long to get a problem resolved. Personally, I never had to contact customer support because I've purchased my licenses through Newegg. But this isn't near enough of a con to cause me to deduct an egg off my review.

5 out of 5 eggsBest PC Security Suite, period!

Pros: Very protective, at times to a fault, while still being light. UI is clean and easy to navigate and it comes with all the features you need to properly protect your PC

Cons: The CD that I buy and have shipped to me it completely useless. The really should change to an all digital format since the CD only contains a link to download the software. They could easily just send you the link and code via email, which would allow them to lower the price a bit (which is creeping up steadily every year). Also, the renewal price is always way more than it's worth, which is a disturbing trend among all SecSuites lately.

Other Thoughts: Best Security Suite Ever! It can be a bit "too protective" at times, but if you know how to tune your settings accordingly, then it's no problem, If you don't know how to tune your settings, then you're better off with the over protection anyway. When it comes to data preservation, it's always better to aire on the side of caution.

5 out of 5 eggsReplaced free anti-virus and firewall

Pros: Two years ago I replaced the leading free firewall and leading free anti-virus with ESET because of it's low system resource overhead. I find most freeware does the job, but it got so that they were running in the background constantly and were really hurting the performance of my system. There was very little I could do with the freeware to stop this from happening, so I decided to bite the bullet and go with a commercial product that I could hopefully modify to fit my needs. ESET always runs specials on Newegg, and after doing some reading I decided I'd give it a try. I have been very happy with the results. I run three PCs - laptop, desktop and family PC. The family PC had the most trouble with viruses, the laptop and desktop had troubles with anti-virus/firewall overhead creep. Both problems were handled well by ESET. And ESET runs specials often enough that I am able to purchase license renewals at reasonably low prices (free is better, but I'm willing to pay $15 a year for good software).

Cons: I believe that all anti-virus/firewalls have this problem, but ESET sometimes doesn't play well with other software. It's usually software that needs to take low level control of the system (gaming, high end CAD, proprietary numeric modeling). When I hit one of these roadblocks it's easy enough to disable ESET, but it sometimes takes me a little while to remember to do that.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking to upgrade from freeware/adware, are interested in small footprints on your system resources, and still want to keep the cost down, Newegg and ESET are worth a try.

One last thing, ESET also has an Android version. I use the freeware version of this software but I think ESET offers a multi-device license. I'm not sure my Samsung needs it, but I'm trying it out anyway.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great program, I have used nod32 for years and it has always been a very effective anti-virus. Decided to upgrade to the Smart Security which has an anti-virus plus more and I'm very happy with it. Easy to navigate menus, On-Demand virus scans and a personal firewall which is great for people who connect to public Wi-Fi locations. Also has a gamer mode which can be set to run automatically whenever a game is running in full-screen which saves you time from enabling and disabling it yourself. If you want a fast and effective security program buy this one.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsBest we have used

Pros: We have used ESET and before that NOD 32 from same company since 2010. Prior to that our family used Webroot, Mcaffe, and Norton. This is the only security system used alone by most users in our home. Someone always had problems with some kind of malware using other the other antivirus security systems. With ESET we have had no instances of malware. It has been worth the money to purchase multiple licenses for all the teenagers and adults in our household. Prior to ESET we had to pay techs to try malware removal which most often resulted in wiping of hard drives. That's what you get with teens in the house. I am not a tech person so the details of the system mean nothing to me. I install and let it do its work. I can perform scans on demand or scheduled.

Cons: None
