This review is from: Kaspersky Internet Security 2014 - 3 PCs
Pros: Easy install on all 3 machines. (W7, 32bit) Seems light impact on computer performance whereas Avast sloooowed loading of many websites.
Other Thoughts: Never had virus or other malware problems, but with Cryptolocker and other nasties in the air, decided to beef up protection. W7-32bit.
The only problem with Kaspersky was during start-up on my multi-display rig... appeared it was loading at the same time as my video card driver and was causing the desktop to display incorrectly... rotated wall paper image, icons on wrong monitor, etc. (not a problem on single-monitor computer, however.)
To fix... right click Task Bar, then Properties/Customize. Set the Kaspersky line to "Show Icon & Notification". This causes the Kasperky icon to appear farther right in the system tray and apparently to load the AV sooner... prevents it from interfering with the video driver during boot.
Pros: Easy install. Same speed as their HT-PC002 PCIE card.
Other Thoughts: Received defective unit. Was replaced quickly and without hassle. Just what a Newegg seller should be.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works like it's supposed to. Decent speeds... CDM with Intel X25-M on W7-32bit...
Much faster on reads than USB 2.0, of course, and about 2X faster at copying folders. Backup copies my stock market data folder, 240MB/1450 files, in about 6 seconds.
Cons: I have the earlier Gauntlet model also. This Gauntlet 2's data transfer rate is about the same as its predecessor, but the case is annoying to open if you care/need to swap out the drive. There is not even a notch along the margin where the case parts snap together so that you can insert a screwdriver to pry it open. I had to insert a small screwdriver into one of the screw holes to pry a spot up and get my fingernail in there to keep it open until I could work the screwdriver around the margin. It's also shiny plastic and shows fingerprints like mad. Annoying compared to the earlier model, but I'll cope. Minus 1 Egg for the case.
Other Thoughts: Had bought one from another seller when Newegg didn't have in stock. Have since bought a 2nd.READ FULL REVIEW
