As always, making use of your nickname. I completely agree with you. To be noted, I am a hardcore gamer. I've come to the conclusion after all these years that 0,5 slower loading times (theoretically speaking) isn't an issue. What is an issue is if the AV flag the game as false positive, or worse, make the game crash. Doesn't happen with WD but has happened with Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Panda, Emsisoft... the list can be made longer. To be fair, no, I haven't tried the named vendors the last two or three years. It doesn't make any sense trying them either anymore. I'd rather have WD slow down loading by 0,5 seconds than having games crashing when playing a three hour session. When put into that perspective, what is 0,5 seconds really?
