Trendmicro is a product that I like very much for its simplicity and it is very effective. I have a test of Trendmicro planned for later this week :)
I had this on a device for 4-6 months last year, it was fairly light and AFAIK let nothing through. Basic settings were OK, with a certain amount of easy configuration settings available if you wanted them. That is about as far as my AV testing goes these days, I'll let the experts here do a much better job.

Im about to decide between trendmicro maximum security and avast ultimate theyre priced same (15 eur, 3 years 5 devices)
Avast just has VPN & better web protection. Trend micro has decent bb i guess. I will use both product on android devices aswell ( 1 desktop , 2 android devices)

Wich is better? Wich would you take?

Could have a look at online reviews, system performance, the time it takes to run a full scan, detection rates between the two, and what appeals to your needs more as an end consumer, then ask again here. That's what I'd do. :p

For me probably would have to be Avast Ultimate. But that's my personal preference. Also, take a look around at some discounters to see if they offer something good too on these products.
