If you are serious about knowing which a/v products are "best" (for some 
definition of best that is meaningful for you), you need to look at the 
real researchers, not the pc mags, which are all about touchy feely and not 
about performance and not the vendors, who are obviously biased.

NOD 32 scored very well in the most recent tests at the University of 
Tampere.  Unfortunately, not all researchers test NOD 32, so you have less 
data to rely on than other scanners.
