    AV-Comparatives states that NOD32 is lighter than F-Secure but is it really?

    Last time I tried F-Secure AV (only) it was very light

    what do you think

    A vs B discussions are not allowed at Wilders'. Each AV may behave differently on particular systems so the best would be to try both and then decide. As for ESET, feel free to ask further questions in our official forum at https://forum.eset.com.

    Difficult to state as performance depends upon many factors, including your OS, what other security programs you have running in real-time, your computer's memory etc.

    And do you mean how light the AV "feels" in real-time or their effect on CPU/memory?

    Both of the ones you listed are generally thought to be on the light side but you will have to try on your own machine(s) to judge.

    IME, NOD AV and F-Secure are BOTH very lightweight in terms of performance drag and it was very difficult to tell them apart.
