Installed this today. So far no hiccups at all. Really like the UI. Will be interesting to test this.
Reviewing 2014 220.127.116.1121 Technical Preview (May 11, 2013)
Music4Ever is right, it is a beta so there must be some bugs. That's why it's called beta, find errors and post the error. If you do not like the beta so wait until it's out of beta. Then you might want to give it 5 stars you know.
Reviewing 2013 18.104.22.16817 Beta (Aug 2, 2012)
'I gave it 3 stars based on the products current status and reputation, as well as the reviews currently posted.'
Exactly you rated it on the reputation of Kaspersky not on the version released - If you are beta testing it's of no help to whatsoever to Kaspersky if you give glowing reviews if there are major issues with a product that need sorting, that’s the idea of beta software being released, they need to know how the product is working on users PC’s & if there are problems they need to know what they are. Your comment 'wait for the final' is gormless.
BTW I'm no lamer & have used IBM clones since the 286 so this is not my first day. As to reviews posted I am the only one who has taken the time to download 2013 on ‘File Forum’ then installed & tested it. I doubt very much if you have done that. I also tested the separate AV also.
You are obviously a Kaspersky fan & that's fair enough but when you test a product you run & comment as it is NOT on what was or what your prediction of the final will be. As for new additions I have read each & every change-log. And I stand by my review of the RC, it was unbelievably buggy.
Before you have a go at me at least download & run the versions posted here as it doubtful that you have & you are certainly actually running version 2012 as betas of 2013 have been unusable - I've used just about every AV on the market & some of the 'new' additions are to be blunt gimmicks as are some of the new add-on's to Norton & Bit-Defender for instance. The Firewall module of Kaspersky is still easily taken out, & you are far better off with the AV & a standalone Firewall. AV companies are now in a rut of having to release a new version each year just because the rest do, they would be far better consolidating a version rather than a new version & interface each year.
You are a typical person who has used the same product for years & can't deal with any criticism - I too have used Kaspersky also & is OK but no better than many other AV’s out there.
As for a any one AV being the best that is a very subjective point of view, there are many aspects of what is best & if you take time to look at the various AV review sites it changes from month to month some are better at zero day exploits, some the Firewall is perhaps more robust, others have a much better customer service if you have issues & the list goes on & on. What is obvious is a need for layered protection & not reliance on any one product & that includes Kaspersky as no product is 100% effective no matter how much you wish it were.
Install the products you review next time or avoid beta test sites as necessary negative reviews of pre-release obviously upset you .
'Next to Sophos, which is not available to consumers, Kasper4sky products rank No. 1 next to Bitdefender, so that's where I base my review on! '
So it's not actually 'your' review at all, it is others reviews & what you have read that you are basing 'your' opinion on, this renders all your reviews of Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 totally invalid - You cannot review something you have never used ~
Reviewing 2013 22.214.171.12467 Beta (Jul 13, 2012)
I gave it 3 stars based on the products current status and reputation, as well as the reviews currently posted.
You only gave it a 1 star, which shows one of two things.
You don't have a clue about the product and/or you're a lamer!!
There are some serious additional features added to KIS 2013 and hasd you taken the time to read the product description in the Kaspersky forums, you would know that!
I've been using KIS for years and years and can vouch for the product's quality and reputation.
Next to Sophos, which is not available to consumers, Kasper4sky products rank No. 1 next to Bitdefender, so that's where I base my review on!
Since the product is still being developed and tested, a 3 star will suffice for now!
