    A little early but I am going to say, this may be the best product yet.

    Been using 1.5 the AV which is very good. I have not used 1.9 in awhile and loaded it today and was frigging amazed. Scanning is considerable faster, to say the least, but the overall feel of the product with a firewall was outstanding.

    This is going to be what Trend attempted to do and failed, and is better then WSA and a whole lot user friendly. This product will be the first breath of a fresh air product in quite awhile.

    I will be the first one standing in line to buy it when it is ready, and hopefully soon.;)

    not a one. I really love the lay out for the firewall and for running processes. Panda not only hit a home run but a grand slam with this product. I hoestly have no complaints with it and it is as light as a feather. To me it has to be close to being a RC.

    Is 2.0 similar to the others where its so simple you basically have no options etc?

    If so, I will pass.

    Why are you so disappointed in WSA.

    As long as you do not hit the 'settings' options it has a simple interface. For nerds and enthousiasts the settings options is great. Only point I can agree with is it that it would be more elegant to hide the settings options in a simple GUI mode.

    kees, I honestly am more like your neighbor next door. For me to buy a product I need to be able to understand, set it up, and forget it. I dont need products that are like reading War and Peace and that is what Webroot diid to a perfectly good Prevx product. Do you really think the weekend shopper at Best Buy, is going to buy it, take it home and install it and not sit there thinking, " What in the hell did I just buy?"

    They are, and that is reality. Pandas 2.0 has taken into consideration, "The Best Buy Factor"

    WSA is good, but I personally think that Eset, Kapersky and Avira, along with Panda, provide better protection to.

    You asked.o_O

    I just wish Panda was more like WSA in terms of disk io cpu time.

    I like the Beta 1.9 a lot. The only concern I have is if I am connected to the cloud. All this "synch" stuff in the settings and displays has me concerned that I'm not always connected to the cloud.
    As far as WSA is concerned, I have to see some concrete results from av-comparatives before I join (jump on) the bandwagon.

    Not a love affair. Just a way to substantiate claims made about the software. That's all. Let's stay on topic which is Panda Cloud 2.0.

    There are many ways available. You mentioned AV-C specifically, which was my point.

    I think it is silly to avoid a program because there are not "concrete results" from AV-C. (Your words)

    Within every AV I've tested, free or paid, I've always gone into settings, made some changes and then forgot it. I agree some AVs have more options than others, but that allows for optimisations at different levels if one so wishes. You don't have to touch them; many people leave them at the defaults.

    I know some people won't even go into settings or know what to enable/disable within them.

    Agreed.
    It's that WSA hasn't performed at a high level over a substantial period of time as the other AVs have.

    Seriously?

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=antivirus testing organization

    Is it that you are unaware of others, or you think AV-C is the only one that is trustworthy? If your answer is the latter, then again, I ask why the love affair with AV-C.

    Good Evening ! Just installed Panda 1.9 and as Trjam intimated it's probably the finest Cloud A/V available...the Firewall is amazing. Can hardly wait until the final release is introduced...I will purchase immediately. Congrats to Pedro and the Panda development team. Just one question the Firewall doesn't register with Windows 7, Security Centre. And will scheduled scanning be available in the final release? Sincerely...Securon

    I'm sure it will register with Security Center when final. I believe Pedro has confirmed that.

    Still haven't seen any results for WSA, from any test organization.
    Why so afraid of av-comparatives?

    I have no problem with AV-C at all. I'm just trying to understand why some have this believe that they are the only reviewer in the industry that matters. You have not been able to answer that. At the same time you say you won't use a program until it has their stamp of approval.

    Apparently, you do have a problem with AV-comparatives.
    I think other reviewers are fine. Still waiting for any review of WSA.

    No. I said all reviewers are fine. Still waiting for a detailed review of WSA.
