    My primary point is that Avast! isn't bad, it's free, and you dont need to go through the hassle of getting a new key as often (it's only yearly with avast!) with NOD32, you're at the mercy of ESET, and I don't believe that they're giving 1 year trials out for free.

    ok..how about a direct link to the pictures posted on the av-comparative site? (instead of using TinyPic) And are you looking at the LATEST test results? (Febuary 2009)

    I said it was equally rated, if it was not rated higher in some categories. I did say 'most categories' but I did not say ALL categories. Overall, ESET scored higher than Avast! because Avast! had a few more False Positives. I did not discount that fact, but I did not mention it either.

    I didn't imply that vendors could not legally give out trial keys, you misread my message there. I said that it was illegal for users (under the EULA) to use more than one trial key. (Because according to the EULA, you're supposed to only use one trial key, then BUY a key from them) I'm assuming ESET is only making trial keys readily available for users to make things easier (because they're a larger company than Alwil is)

    How does that prove I'm being biased exactly? It doesnt. I noted that the charts and graphs you supplied to me were from ESET's website. That is slanted and biased. (I never belive the charts and graphs the vendor puts up about their own product vs. others)

    I am not being biased. I have not once insinuated that ESET is inferior to Avast! at all, I have simply told you what I feel based upon the data I have seen.
    That being said, you're running off the current topic again, by attacking my own neutrality.

    We have already established that exploiting the trial keys that ESET 'hands out' is illegal, so there's no need to revisit that point and beat a dead horse so to speak :3
    You may cite ESET's pricing setup as a counterpoint to my price argument, but outside of that, you're falling outside of the debate parameters. (Which means you have to admit that avast! isn't as bad as you say it is. :3)

    (I'm a debater, XD get used to me calling you on topicality) :P

    Hahaha. The fact that avast! was monthly in the past has no relevance over it's performance or pay structure today, When I compare the price I paid for a 3 year avast! pro subscription (69.99, plus taxes), to what I had to pay for one year of norton, and Mcaffee (both cost about 79.99 for only one year I even got a special deal through the OEM), Avast! is far cheaper than the major vendors by far. I have not looked into NOD32's pricing, but I have a feeling they charge as much, if not more than norton or Mcaffee does. (If I'm wrong, then that's fine but I still find avast! home to be a better suggestion than exploiting a trial subscription of NOD32)

    Not in the home version of avast! in fact, the home version IS free, you just have to obtain a new key yearly. Did you read the fine print on avast!'s site? I don't think you did.

    Avast! DOES have pro versions, and I do personally own avast! pro myself (it's a 3 year key, the only thing the folks at alwil are charging for is access to the advanced interface (which most newbies dont need, and a key that lasts longer than a year) ESET's NOD32 only offers trial keys, on a TRIAL BASIS. you're not supposed to milk the system ;) (You can do so, but I won't go as far as advising anyone to do so, especially not when Avast! is equally rated, if not superior to ESET's NOD32 in most categories)

    trail? don't you mean trial? and actually there ARE laws preventing you from doing such, it's all in the EULA you have to 'accept' before you install the software.
    Don't try to downplay or forget that the EULA is backed by THE LAW. Technically it's illegal. Simple as that.

    Key-gen, Key grabber, there's not much of a difference dude, you're breaking the law no matter what. I'd never recommend that to anyone. (I've not said your suggestion was impossible, but I like to suggest something legit if at all possible, saves people from trouble down the road)

    I did look. I know what I saw. Experts or not, the forum seemed to be strictly tailored to ESET's NOD32, which makes it hard to believe it's neutrality.

    "If you're smart"? Sorry, I'm a little old fashioned, while I do happen to feel that modern day EULAs are bullcrap, and companies do overcharge, I personally don't tell anyone to go hunt up a keygen. (Dude, hunting keygens is what gets you infected in the first place, especially for newbies who dont know a legit site from a hole in their bum)
    How about thinking a little before making such a suggestion. (it works wonders)

    The first link was BS, as it linked to a useless forum teeming with nod32 fans.

    The second link was more productive. http://av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/ondret/avc_report21.pdf
    Read it and weep, Avast is very highly rated, only it's False positive rate is a bit high. (I still recommend it despite it's false positive rate, because it's one of the best performing Freeware AVs i've seen) ESET's NOD32 isn't freeware I belive. (correct me if I'm wrong)

    By the way, Avast!'s resident protection is much faster. It's false positive rate is much lower than the test shows, under default settings

    Anyhow I think it's more appropriate to suggest freeware first, then software you pay for as an alternative, if they can afford it/need it for a mission critical system

    Dude, dont give me crappy slanted graphs. Avast isn't even listed in that round up. XD
    Give me a real unbiased source.

    And I do my research thank you very much. I pride myself on using only unbiased sources, and benchmarks.
