Reliability and Security
Panda antivirus software is widely remarked as a provider of great malware protection, but it is often said that it’s effect on computing performance doesn’t go unnoticed. As antivirus software is constantly running in the background, a common issue is that it takes up too much processing power, slowing the computer down. Unfortunately, this is the effect we found Panda to have during our test. In terms of ease of use, it’s hard to fault Panda Antivirus - installation was a breeze and the product made sense from the get-go. The user interface is extremely friendly and it is very easy to know if you are protected or not, how many threats there are…

Support and Customer Service
The level and quality of support Panda offer depends on your subscription - if you have the most expensive subscription (Panda Gold Protection, at $76.99 / year) then you will have access to Premium Support. Standard support is simply Phone Support (only available on weekdays) and email support. Premium support, as expected, is much better: it allows you to use phone support on weekends (availability extended to 7am -> Midnight), gives you access to chat support (24/7) and remote support. Remote support is extremely impressive, allowing the support agent to access your computer and make fixes on your behalf. Panda also utilise social media to give support, which is a great addition to the lineup.
