    So I just stumbled upon this site -http://www.pcantivirusreviews.com-
    when I was looking for info about how much RAM a certain AV was using on average.

    They mention how much RAM that is being used in Real-time,
    while scanning. And how much CPU is being used while scanning also.
    And of course they test against Malware as well!
    Detection capabilities, removal capabilities etc...

    And I have to say I quite like these reviews, even if it's not a Professional ogranisation behind them.

    And the reviews are really well written and very informative.
    I personally prefer these over the diffrent PC magazine's reviews :)

    One is even able to get 10% of the price on certain Av's that has been reviewed on the site.

    So what do you think about the reviews Good Or Bad?

    Thanks, SweX

    Well can one really compare it to Toptenreviews wich is totally BS!
    Since they but Webroot or Bitdefender in first place year after year :D

    But we will see if it's really BS in the 2011 reviews I guess.

    I would choose to just see and enjoy the rankings rather than bash a product about it.

    BTW its wierd to see BD at one of the top positions and norton lagging behind:eek:

    So the final statement might be that the reviews are crappy:p.

    But as I said, I like that they let you know how much RAM that is being used in Real-time, and while scanning etc... And the product I was curios to know how much RAM it used was Panda;) So Now I know thanks to this site :thumb:

    I don't trust this review. Anyone could claim what they do without backing their opinions up with numeric facts.

    Yep I saw that one when it was posted here at Wilders a while back in Feb and since then I have Bookmarked Raymonds Blog, but thanks anyway ALiasEX;) .

    Though I have to say that those two reviews/tests Raymonds and the site I posted, is the only two that puts up the RAM usage in a comparsion list wich makes it easier to compare for the user.
