Let's be serious. How can Panda be more extensive and stronger than Kaspersky? Kaspersky ZAO is the strongest security suite in the world. No suite is better that Kaspersky. I started to believe that those tests are fake. And, in one test, as I far seen, only Panda "won" the first place.
Also, ESET is better than Panda. I've heard a lot of people using those two products, but no Panda.

Kaspersky is the best and it remains forever in the first place, followed by ESET and Norton. No way Panda.

What AV would be good to test using defaults that are best matched with Panda's Defaults.

Of particular interest would be an AV that by default digs into the samples and unpacks them in Realtime protection mode /Not on demand scan , and here I am not talking about running the files just static detection

I'm just interested because much detection in realtime mode depends how far each program extracts to analyze

Nutshell Realtime static detection using programs default unpacker abilitys

Thanks for any advise here

Is this a new joke gone viral on the internet ? :p
Not a joke but facts based on real testing by real companies.

At least these companies are not not copying and pasting malware linkls every 2-3 seconds and flooding the av. Of course if you never give an av a chance to react it will fail. The average person is never ever gonna be flooded with malware every 2-3 seconds. Not even in a life time. 90% of YouTube testers cannot afford a premium account which allows for longer videos. So they try and pack everything into a 2 min video. That is not realistic. Wanna see realistic on YouTube? See Matt from Remove-Malware. His videos are around 25-30 min each. And he never floods an av.

Well maybe I am wrong on that. But these 2 min fast and furious videos with music are not realistic in anyway shape or form.

The performance test was shown for Windows XP, because no other antivirus would run lightly on systems with meagre RAM or on XP based systems.

Run the same on Win 8.1 and you'd be surprised that Panda comes last....Check the results for performance test on Windows 8.1 at AV-Test.

I don't trust any test only my own.

Avast / Dr.Web / ESET / Kaspersky / Microsoft / Symantec / are the products that I recommend.

360 Internet Security is also good (if you are not paranoid about chinese software).
 
I see from their website that a few NHS trusts are using Panda, so it cannot be that bad
No antivirus is only bad, if it was, the vendor would go bankrupt. These vendors all put in a nice product, with all its pros and cons, but nothing is all pros or all cons, if it were all pros, it would damage the AV industry as everybody would only use the best AV and thousands of employees would be layed-off because one AV is the best and nobody uses their one anymore.

With all cons, nobody would ever use that AV ever again so the company would shut down, in a similar way as above.

You can't compare those, because on XP they tested with 3.0 and the last 8.1 Test was with 2.3.

Honestly my test results were the same, when Panda used to hang my PC at times...

Anyway there's so no such thing as a best antivirus...just the one that you use currently and some common-sense would do good.

Bottom line being this:

1. Is Panda lying? No
2. Can Panda backup their web page with true and actually facts? Yes
3. Is it merely marketing? Yes
4. End of debate
:)

The reason the debate started up was because many members do not trust these antivirus testers. Like @Manzai said in here nice little clip, AV testers accept donations. However, if they listen to the developers is the mystery.

Yes, it's marketing, and like I said before, it's better and more trustful marketing then an empty claim.
