Not your father's Symantec Suite

Anonymous, Newegg
16 July 2013
  • Summary: Not a knock against the product itself, but you may want to get the downloadable version of this. Newegg decided to throw the boxed software into a bubble envelope. It arrived almost completely destroyed inside. The CD and paperwork were unharmed, but it's something to think about.
  • Pros: Historically suites like this have been cumbersome and bloated. Symantec however has completely redesigned their Internet Security product to run lean, fast, and efficient. If you'd told me 2-3 years ago that I'd be saying this about any security suite (let alone Symantec) I'd have laughed in you...
  • Cons: None so far.

Excellent security, completely reasonable performance

James C., Newegg
26 December 2012
  • Summary: To the customer complaining about Newegg shipping NIS 2012 instead of 2013, I DO agree Newegg should ship what they say they're going to, but upgrading to the newest version of NIS on an activated copy is ALWAYS free. Go to Support > New Version Check in the interface.
  • Pros: I've been using NIS for several years now (since 2009, if I remember correctly). I switched to it from AVG after a number of viruses got through. To date, only one infection (on someone else's PC) has gotten through NIS's defenses, and even in that case, Norton was able to warn me there was somet...
  • Cons: Interface can be a bit awkward and confusing for more advanced tasks. Symantec seems intent on "simplifying" the interface, but all they seem to be accomplishing is making it more confusing.

Much better than earlier years

Brian P., Newegg
18 December 2012
  • Summary: I haven't gotten infected by anything in years, so I can't really tell you how robust this is at detecting malware/viruses/etc. I'm more concerned with something lightweight and with configuration options that are easy to customize.
  • Pros: MUCH lower system resource use than some of the prior versions (I last used Norton in 2008-2009). There has been a clear effort to use less system resources, and Norton even has a view to show you how much of your resources it is using.
  • Cons: The UI isn't exactly user-friendly, even though it looks nice - the marketing guys meddled where they shouldn't have, let the techies determine what goes where in the UI. The labels on settings can be confusing without referencing their website to determine what things actually mean. For example,...

2013 version - not 2012

Narinder G., Newegg
30 November 2012
  • Pros: I wanted to address the 2012 version comment to help clarify for others - This is the Latest Norton Internet Security - There is an Editor's Choice Award by PCMag for the 2012 version on the box in the upper right hand corner - this should not be confused with the 2012 version - it is in fact the...

Très bonne suite

Dirty Harry, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: Efficace, simple, ne dérange pas l'utilisateur par des questions techniques, donc parfait pour les débutants (ou non d'ailleurs) qui veulent être protégés par un logiciel qui "gère tout seul" . N'est pas trop gros consommateur de mémoire ni temps processeur, pour parler simplement .

  • Summary: Il fait son job, cette version s'est améliorée par rapport à la précédente, essentiellement l'ergonomie. Bref il fait ce qu'on, lui demande.
