Help me choose between F-Secure and Bitdefender
Hi all. Newly registered and first post.
I tried Bitdefender 2014 and will now evaluate F-Secure. I've read many posts in this forum and reviewed the lastest AV comparisons and tests. From a technical perspective I consider the two packages to be neck-and-neck but I still need to drill down on some specifics. For me, Windows 7 x64 platform. I'm currently using Norton Security Suite provided by my ISP.
I'm here in an F-Secure forum to solicit objective and subjective opinions on why to select F-Secure. I don't want a flame war or mindless arguing. If that happens, I apologize for the thread and ask that the mods delete it. I'm about 51% sure this is a good idea.
Here's two of my observations:
- F-Secure is considerably more expensive (twice the price)
- F-Secure appears to have better tech support available to the public (I'm not a customer) and I assume that translates into better tech support after purchase (disclaimer - I purchased Bitdefender and opened a few support incidents - not a rewarding experience and unable to get past 1st level support)
- Are there technical advantages not obvious by the close scores in independent testing?
Any thoughtful responses are appreciated.
