Default Which Antivirus to get?

I'm lookning to buy an antivirus software, and I've narrowed it down to either BitDefender, NOD32, or Klaspersky antivirus. I'd like to hear some opinions on which is best. And are there any other better ones that im missing? help please. thanks!

Avast! Home. It is free and equals NOD32 on all levels. I used NOD32 for 2 years and now i use Avast! Home. I have not noticed a difference and i have not had a virus.

I still use AVG free edition and ive never had a virus come through...attempts, but avg picked em up and they never got through..Its easy to use and not memory hungry like many programs...its also free. Ive tried avast and kapersky and i still prefer AVG....I dont believe in paying for one:

I second Avast! Home or any avast product they are truly effective programs and come with great features

It's a much less used av but it is by far the best in my opinion, i have been using F-secure for the last 3 years now great AV and Anti spyware with built in firewall, it is highly customisable to suit your computers speed.

nod32 uses the least amount of resources. vcom systemsuite 6 also has a nice antivirus

Nod32, Kaspersky and BitDefender Pro are known to have the best detection rates.

I use NOD32.
