Paid AV that uses Bitdefender signatures, which would be the reason to pay for this AV when you can have the original one and also in free version?
In this case you'd be better off with the original for sure. However, sometimes third party antiviruses using Bitdefender signatures are lighter or have some features that BD is missing.

I was using the free Tencent PC Manager for a while, because it was noticably lighter on my systems than free or paid versions of BD.

There were some minor issues with it. Sometimes (usually when my computer had not been rebooted for a number of days), the popup alerts would appear as a solid black box with nothing visible. This could be fixed with a reboot, but was still annoying. I can't remember if I tried exiting PC Manager for the system tray icon and reloading it. I presume I did, as I don't know why I wouldn't have done that.

Secondly, it can't quarantine items that are runnning. If detects a runinng process as being bad, it will try to quarantine it but will fail to delete the original file after quarantining it (but you will not be told this), as it appers it does not try to end running processes before deleting them.

Also, I just thought I'd try something different as I'd been using PC Manager for at least a few months.

Most of the time when I encountered some AV's which contain licensed engine from known company, I highly doubt it will not evolve for better outcome like implementation of HIPS, BB or cloud.

Simply because the company perhaps not so big and could not accommodate special fields for that to improve the product.

Indeed having a license borrowed engine will improve the product but stuck on that percentage.

It has lots of features, from what I can see on their website. I wonder why it is not more popular.

There is nothing which makes it stand out from other antiviruses. A couple of years ago I suggested that they add the option to be able to ignore files when they are detected and that they also add changelogs to their website when they release new versions, to show what has been changed. Someone from Reve even rang me to discuss this, but neither idea was implemented.
