This review is from: Kaspersky Multi-Device - 5 Devices
Pros: Well, basically the pros here are that it's Kaspersky Interwebs Security basically, not just anti-virus which is awesome since you have a VERY excellent firewall and VERY excellent anti-virus, as well as some ad blocking features and system vulnerability scanner.
And, you get a 60 dollar rebate! Wow! Three PCs can be used as well as two android devices for 10 dollars?! Oooooo weeeee!! That's one fiiine deal!
Cons: NONE. Except I'd rather have the rebate be more an automatic markdown at checkout versus waiting a while for it.
Other Thoughts: Also, this is OBVIOUSLY not meant for Windows 8/8.1 RT as there isn't a SINGLE piece of malware that works on Windows RT since it uses an ARM processor and doesn't allow third party Win32 Desktop apps. This should be fairly obvious as this is even roughly stated on the box that came with the tablet.
Also, I've used Kaspersky since about 2008 or 2009 and it's been consistently found to be the best of the best, either top three, second or first, out of every other security suite. Version 2014 is just much more polished than 2013, although some fine grain controls were removed, but nonetheless. It'll work perfectly well for the majority of people. It does allow you to turn off features you don't need. And to that reviewer who said this suite "digs too deep into the system," welcome to the world of security software. IT'S SUPPOSED TO DO THAT.
Pros: It's nice, simple, does the job and Windows (at least 8/8.1) has a built in driver for it. I bought two of them this past year when they were on sale for about seven dollars.
Cons: The two I bought this year both failed. The first one stopped working after six or so months and just wouldn't connect to my network anymore. The second one I recently bought just a couple of weeks ago and it just quit, it's not recognized as anything in Windows, no connectivity, no activity lights blinking, nothing.
Other Thoughts: I was within the time window to RMA the second one, but since it was on sale for seven dollars, it would end up costing me money just to send it back, get a replacement, only for that one to possibly fail on me again. I just decided to switch to a different brand and different interface as I've had a pickle of a time with having a PCI-E x1 wireless adapters stay working on me for more than 10 months.
