    Well what i want to know is where to purchase nod 32 at a discount price.I see on there web site it goes for 40$ but i dont pay retail for nothing.

    My mcafee is coming up for renewal soon and it cost almost nothing to renew.

    I like what i see from nod32 ,but there are alot of very good virus programs on market. Even mcafee 7.0 scored pretty darn good. Ive read many reviews and read in forums on diff programs.It seems that kaspersky comes out to be the best but is a resouce hoggggg!! and i think to expensive.

    Not here to start a whoz got the best virus program--i just want nod 32 at a discount or im not interested in it.



    Thanks for your time
     
  2. I learned a long time ago not to deal with people like you...

    I am not a NOD32 person, just an average user who paid the retail priice for it, and intends to renew it AT THE RETAIL RENEWAL PRICE when the time comes..

    I implore to the folks at ESET, don't waste your time with this guy..It would be extremely unfair to all the other users who paid the price to deal with someone as "enlightened" as him..

    I too, got McAfee for $0.00 last month. It lasted a week. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!!!!!!!!!!

    McAfee totally messed up my system and it's a good thing I had a cloned image of my computer Just before I installed McAFee..

    Please, why don't you just stay with McAfee, or better yet, go with Avast! or AVG, or those other great Freebies..

    Bye!

    Agree with SS, Nod is worth the retail price, maybe you would be better suited with something else.

    LOL

    Guy your are funny

    I cant help if you feel guilty for not trying to find the best price out there.Thats your problem!!
    I sure would like to be your salesperson when you buy a new car and pay retail for it without shopping to find the best price.

    But im glad they are people like you out there to help keep the econimy going.

    LOL --mcafee could possibly have been the problem like any software that is made--but most of the time it is the user.

    You might try to find a trial version of VBlocker, which is basically a renamed NOD32.

    The price to continue your subscription is *sometimes* discounted depending on which trial version you purchase.

    Q-ball,

    No deals as far as I know of, so it's up to you: accept Eset's policy on this and become a happy NOD32 camper, or pick another antivirus.

    Shooter,

    I'm sorry to hear about your McAfee problems. Let's not go into "other software bashing" please: that's not the habit over on this board ;) - thanks in advance.

    regards.

    paul

    Well i dont have a problem with paying retail--the problem ive had in the past is that so many programs ive purchased have not given me my moneys worth.From what ive read nod 32 seems to be most excellant and is a very small program.I also like not having to reboot after updates.

    Ill wait for the upgraded version of nod32 to come out then make my decision.


    And by the way Straight Shooter,thanks for making a fool of yourself--ill know in the future not to pay attention to anything you have to say,which is very little


    bye

    I think you'll love it. I trialed NOD32, and for users who want great detection and blazing-fast updates and scans, you really can't beat it.

    It's a great AV--and well worth the money spent.

    thx for your input jim
     
  13. Well, I think myself and other NOD32 users would feel like fools if ESET sold you NOD32 at a reduced price "just" to get you as a customer.. And then, I'd be pretty upset with ESET.. But it doesn't matter what your opinion is to me, you think I'm a fool...and probably anyone else that agrees with me on this issue... As far as I know, ESET doesn't give an "upgrade" offer... and considering the high quality of their product, they probably would not need to...

    Thank You for calling me a fool.. What a high class guy YOU must be!
     
  14. This isn't cars we're talking about. This is software. Is $40 really that much for what you are buying?

    Why not? Slovakia has a right to a strong economy, too...

    I apoligize, Paul, I had many problems with McAfee. I wasn't thinking when I posted that as bashing... Sorry...

    Yes i do think you are a fool---this was my post,if you want to cry about me wanting to buy it at a reduced price. then cry :'(

    I really dont care---you are the type person that gives forums a bad rep.
     
  16. Interesting, you've only had 5 posts here... and already I am the bad guy here who gives forums a bad rep..

    Gents,

    Seems you've started of on the wrong foot ;). Those things do happen on ocassion. No need to fall in love over here - no need to hate one another either. How about: let's cool down, and stick to the issue at hand?

    regards,

    paul
     
  18. Paul, I would like to apoligize to Q-Ball.. I got defensive about the whole thing. I don't want to be kicked off this forum for this ridiculous issue and my words may have been too strong.. I made my points known so there is no point in rehashing...

    Just to change the focus, I would like to state I rarely see any company out there that give reduced rates or upgrade prices, except if you are buying more than one copy or if you are buying more than one product.. There are two AV companies that offer trade in and upgrade packages, but they seem to be the only ones. ESET avoids that issue by charging $27.50 for renewal, which includes the updates AND upgrades..Everything else I saw usually does not have reduced rates. If I want to inquire, I usually email the company directly...

    Q-Ball, I hope you don't think I am a fool for saying this, but let me be among the first to welcome you to the forums...
    Did you get your name "Q-Ball" from the television show "Sliders"?

    Well i had already sent my comment---i will retract what i had to say and just put it up to a bad day for both of us

    Now i do see discounted prices all the time for software--i cant never seem to get the deals--i always findout about them after i have purchased the software

    For ex. i purchased evidence eliminator for 130$ with lifetime upgrades.
    Now 2 mons later i saw it on a web site for 80$Same with pest patrol i own i paid 30$ for it only to find out 2 weeks later i could have purchased it for 20$ if i mentioned the website i saw it on.

    Thats just a few--

    To add to this: N*rton and Mc*fee often do both. PC-c*llin does both. Several a/v companies give discounts to persons in educational and government situations.

    Pretty cool that lots of companies *want* you to be protected "out there", no matter what the cost. ;)

    Q ball.
    If you read some of Straight Shooters posts from the past, youll find out, that hes a quite nice guy , and have LOTS of humour :D :D :D
    Well, back to topic.
    I use both Mcafee and Nod and can recommend both.
    Nods record speaks for itself, and Mcafee are quiet reliable too, IF it works for you, that is.
    Regards
    Ole :)
     
  25. Thank You, Madsen..., It's nice to feel appreciated... :D

    Concerning PC Cillin, I think I have seen it offered lowered., but let me tell you.. On their website, they have it for the full retail price.. Then I go to housecall (their online virus checker), and they have it on for XX% cheaper... I consider that dirty business... Same thing with ZoneLabs, they do that sort of thing too...One link says one price, another says another, all within their own site, and I think that's dirty. Mind you, I am a ZAPRO user, so it's NOT the software I'm bashing, it is this price playing they do.

    Panda always sends me junk email.. You gotta buy Panda Platinum 7, we're giving away XXXXX .. I consider that "impulse buying".. I like to test software, and if I don't like it, I SEND IT BACK AND GET A REFUND.. That $ that I save is nice, but won't influence me... Well, it did once, and I wasn't happy...

    I am sorry, Q-Ball, and I'm not directing this to you, but Evidence Eliminator is not exactly my cup of tea.. I cannot respect a company that tries to make money out of peoples fears by advertising on banner sites at porn sites...Some companies give out rebates, some don't. I won't let that influence me in making a software purchasing decision. Of course I will investigate and ask, but I won't let that be my "make or break" point...

    Pc Cillin, Norton, McAfee, and everyone else are nice, and they have their strong points, but they are not NOD32..

    If you respond to sales@nod32.com and they give you a discount, they should offer it to me, Mickey the Man, Madsen, and so on and so forth, otherwise I won't be a fool and renew NOD32 next year based strictly on principle..... Unless you have helped ESET by referring it to others, that's different. But, hey man, you come here on ESET's forum, and say "I never pay retail".. Well, I'm not so interested in what you do, (you already made that clear, and that's fine)... I am more interested in seeing what ESET will do...Can you at least try to understand my point of view before you get mad..?

    No hard feelings, it's just that I FEEL very strongly about this issue...
