Technically, I don't think any antivirus software is even necessary if you use the Comodo firewall but the included AV doesn't get in the way and is just another layer of protection.
From another angle, CIS has gotten so powerful and ridiculously easy to use that it just doesn't make sense to pay for security software anymore.
I don't doubt that it works for you exactly as you've described, but you are an advanced user who doesn't need software to make decisions for you. False positives are only one potential problem of anti-malware software and the fact that you haven't experienced any with Comodo AV is anecdotal. The purpose of testing labs is to hopefully provide reproducible results which are more generally valid. No one is going to have exactly the same results, but chances are good that if the test methodology was solid you can expect results in the same ballpark. I would agree that CIS is quite powerful and effective in the hands of advanced users, but to say it is ridiculously easy to use makes me think you don't work with inexperienced users much. Being at least partially relieved of the burden of making decisions is part of what people are paying for when they buy security software.
