5.0 out of 5 stars Great value security, 12 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BitDefender Internet Security 2012 with Anti Theft & Data Recovery, 1 User, 1 Year License (PC) (CD-ROM)
I recently upgraded to Windows 8 (which is great), but I discovered that my old Internet security software (ESET Smart Security) was not yet compatible with 8.

After a while if looking around, I decided that I would go with BitDefender Internet Security. Whereas this product is an older version than the current release, the serial key included is valid with the new 2013 version, which can be downloaded for free for 2012 users from the BitDefender website (just download the free trial and enter the product key when prompted). This means that this works out a lot cheaper than buying the 2013 version on Amazon or even through the BitDefender website!

I would highly recommend the software itself, as it has a nice easy to use interface and various new scanning features that ESET just doesn't have. For example, if you leave your computer inactive for a certain amount of time, it will automatically start an antiviral scan - and pause it if you start using your PC again.
Performance wise, there hasn't been a noticeable decrease in speed since installing it, and the firewall doesn't seem to have slowed my Internet connection down either.

Overall, it's definitely a good buy (especially for the £5 I got it for!) and is fully compatible with the new 64-bit Windows 8 as well, which some security companies haven't caught up with yet.
