    It looks more like a subjective review rather than a test.

    - Toss a coin & buy from here :)

    Seriously though, as there is no indication of the test parameters, for me, it has no credibility.

    I have to agree with Pilli with out a list of what it was tested with this test is next to worthless.

    This so-called AV review site shows a giant hypodermic, large splotches of dark red background, a plethora of ads, a display nearly 2 screens wide, NO hard data, & has every *selected* AV represented by a direct "Buy Now" click spot... how objective can it be? :cool:

    I had to use a dictionary if I wanted to translate your text, bellgamin.

    Maybe this AV product review is actually better than the others. After all, instead of "here's our super-duper AV testing methodolgy, which no one will agree with", they simply explain how the products look and work, so you can sort of "get a feel" for them. There is nothing wrong with that. The reviews I hate are the ones that do their own mysterious efficacy testing, and always seem to put NAV on top.

    And it's getting a lot of hits this way ;)

    There's a sister site as well:http://www.spamfilterreview.com

    Looks the same, same test quality
    At least these pages offer some charts to compare features, not detection rates...
