I have installed and a few things I noticed:
Under the scanning settings, Scan compress files on demand is not enabled.

Under the firewall settings/intrusion prevention, amongst the long list of options there is no explanation what so ever.

Autorun is disabled by default but no info given as well.

Now if you give this to a beginner user or even a average user who will likely install and forget, when he/she decides to explore will only get god knows how many question mark.

Apart from this, indeed scanning speed has improved compared to previous version I used.

I have also suggested the above on the relevant beta forum.
Explain briefly what is Autorun and why it is recommended to be disabled by default.

As for usage:

Only 2 services. The URL filter and the PSUNMAIN process (note that I have removed the toolbar).

Still how much it uses is great, mind you it is a cloud AV.

Definitely its everything were light like feathers and major cons is needing a connection to make it fully active.

Thus Cloud AV makes the detection have a higher accuracy since its delivers in realtime.

Light on RAM usage, but who doesn't say it may slow down your PC performance.

I too have used Panda Cloud and its great. No impact at all. Still CloudAvs cant replace full time ones.

I installed it, After a few hours I did notice there was diffidently a slow down (Yes a suprise to me) and I was experiencing odd system glitches. Hard to explain them, Not exactly screenshot material. I did manage to create a restore point before installing and reverted to it. Everything is back to normal and the odd issues are gone.

I'll give it another go when 2.0 final releases. Thanks. :)

I have not yet experienced any slowdown on the PC even on full scan. What I will try to do is do it on an image of my Host and see.

Still a bit sceptical on the firewall though. If only they would have some tooltips under the firewall options and IDS it would be handy instead of me going to the help section and dig it from there.

Will keep testing out.

You don't wanna do that because there is only room for one and this Panda does not like to share. Real talk.
