    Hi ratchet,

    I've had licenses for both and imho both are superb products. I settled with NIS because I find Norton's 2-way FW works very well and is synergistic with the AV. For just $1 more, getting NIS is a no brainer.

    I second Jo Ann's recommendation. I've been using NIS for 4 years, from NIS2011 to the current NIS2014. Over that time it has provided effective security and it's operation never seems to load down system startup, the CPU or RAM. The bottom line is that after 4-years I'm not looking for another security suite. ;)

    I had PUP bypass NIS. The best part about it was that it was scanned and marked as safe. After that I stopped using NIS in favor of other AVs.

    For $1 more you should definitely get NIS. Why go for less?;)

    That really depends. I don't think it's always about money. If there is not another Firewall you prefer to use then yes definitely go with the Security Suite. NIS works great for most people. If you can also use your NIS key with the AV only then I would for sure purchase the NIS key.

    As already mentioned unless you want to use a different firewall NIS is the better choice IMHO. I used it for four years it generally worked fine.
