This review is from: Bitdefender Total Security 2014 - Value Edition - 3 PCs / 2 Years
Pros: Great price
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Researched best A/V programs on web and this one came up with the best ratings. Read other reviews on this site and saw all the comments about bad install, slow performance and almost bypassed. But the price (60-60 rebate FREE) could not pass it up. Installed it on 2 Win 7 64 bit machines and had absolutely no problems. It has not slowed my machine down in anyway.
Scans perform in 10-20 minutes even on my older machine. Love the BitDefender SafePay - started trusting online banking as it has a virtual keyboard inside of it to protect your logons and passwords, credit card info. The wallet feature also allows you to lock down your passwords and have them autofill websites for you. My favorite feature is the Vault, It allows me to store my PII and financial info in a vault and password protect it. After entering password it opens as a logical drive where you can access it, relock it and you don't even know the logical drive is there (pretty cool).
Have not used the Safego backup feature as I still don't trust cloud storage, it also has Identity theft protection but have not tried that as well, so no opinions there.
The firewall seems good, was using ZoneAlarm on old machine but hated the way it took over Firefox and the constant pop-ups everytime I wanted to go to intenet. Used Comodo on newer machine, did not hijack browser but always popped-up asking, Bit Defender has not popped up asking for permission, not a firewall expert so not sure if that is good or not.
Mailed in the rebate so will see how that goes, but even for $60 for 3 pcs for 2 years a great deal. Paired with Malware Bytes and Spybot it is doing a great job. Hope this persuades some of you that it's a good product and deal. BTW, first time writing a review, but had to as I like this one.
