Just Reading the December 2019 edition of PC Pro magazine.page 123

PC Pro Magazine are offering via the PC Pro Software Store :-

Norton 360 Premium 10 Devices for 2 years for £29.99 or

Norton 360 Premium 10 Devices for 1 years for £19.99

I believe each device can have 75GB cloud backup per device

Via the link www.pcpro.link/301norton

Says price guaranteed until 31/10/2019

Note
It says readers offer but I cant see any requirement/validation to be a reader etc.

The store seems to be hosted by Cleverbridge which Ive used buying Macrium software before and have never had a problem

It looks like a subscription which you may want to change to not autorenew.

Adding a product to your cart seemed to add in optional 'download insurance' so only check what you actually want....

NB This isnt a recommendation for the software just a heads up

Waste of money- it's not a deal at any price.

Have you tried it then and speak from personal experience?

I always think AV software is a complex issue. You get people claiming product "X" is better than product "Y". But with AV software how do you judge it? If it's based on how many virii or malware it's trapped then how many did it miss? If you only judge it to be good because it hasn't found anything - thereby making you think either you haven't visited a malicious site or that it trapped the problem silently. How about how many it did it trap? Again, how many did it miss because that particular product wasn't as good as claimed. AV products don't go around telling you how many they missed and let through and a user could have dozens of silently sleeping malware items on their machines just waiting to be silently activated for use in a DDoS or other nefarious process.

One of the best ways of testing is by putting known virii into a freshly installed OS and seeing whether a specific product catches it - which is where magazine roundups are useful, since they have the time and resources to go through the testing and reimaging of the OS and reinjecting the malware.

Forgot personal experience - it is regularly beaten by free AV in systematic tests. It's a waste of money, even if it was 1p - there are free alternatives that represent better value.

Most people unless they are involved in dodgy behaviour are fine with windows defender.
This will go cold regardless of price due to the company unfortunately. Norton is avoided by most it savy people due to its historical performance and reputation. Like McAfee. An AV thrown in at pc world to those who know nothing about computers.

Evidence rather than opinion please.

This is a great deal & until evidence of it having fallen off badly is posted, should be HOT!

EDIT: just to preempt the bloat comments that always surface in Norton threads, they are 15+ years out of date!

BINGO - out of date rubbish!
For those interested £20 a year is brilliant & £30 for 2 has the added benefit of not having to work out how to enter a product key every year!

Are you on commission?
Even it was free its still no good, outdated, bloated poop...
Alansmithee06/10/2019 11:06

Is that a question for me or jnm21?

If thats me the answer is obviously no.

But I have used norton/fsecure/avast/kaspserky/bitdefender in roughly that order. I work in IT and Id like to think I have a relatively open mind.

Norton used to be a resources hog years ago...what its like now I dont know and Im guessing you dont either.

I post a deal ....people make their own minds up. Simples.
2 years is maybe god price - otherwise I normally pay £20py from amazon.

I don’t trust windows inbuilt protections, from personal experience I got infected and trust me when I tell you I know what to click and where I go...

Since then I trust Norton and use them for around 4 years now... happily share the extra pc slots with my parents and a friend...
Im not here to defend Norton in particular but for anyone looking at antivirus maybe have a look at this austrian av test site...

av-comparatives.org/com…m=0

If the link works

Windows defender detects ok but comes up with a high number of false positive (ie. detecting things as problem when theyre not)
Norton in the past was rubbish and agree with all comments above.

But I use it and it's the total opposite, light, quick to install, non intrusive, and usual benefits of catching things.

It's people's perceptions on HUKD which means I don't bother posting Norton deals which is a shame.

Stop being Nortonist people!
This is a good price for Norton 360 Premium (10 Devices, 2 years), wether you like the product or not. Can you find it at a better price?
Whatever a company makes, it should always remember that when you get something very wrong, people remember for a very long time.
A great price so ordered. This might have been a big mistake!

Then after the order completed they issue a 'thank you for your order' page which confirmed electrocnic delivery of Norton 360 but it then also says

"There will be a slight delay in the delivery of your license key. We are in the process of correcting this technical issue which may include waiting for information from the software publisher. This should be resolved within 1-2 workdays, although it is generally much faster. We will contact you via email as soon as further information is available. We apologize for any inconvenience."

When I queried this (by email) with their support/help dept , I received about 3 hours later a short but rude email back - the sort of email Ryanair might send?

A company aboslutely to AVOID

I've been using a Norton Small Business for the last 18 months or so and it's not the bloatware it once was. I volunteer with a charity so they wanted a robust and well trusted solution, we get it discounted via Technology Exchange for around £15 for 10 devices a year. So this deal is better since it's the 360 edition which has VPN, cloud backup and a few other features.

Nope - are you? Your input is worth a commission - about 10% of the cost of a free AV!

Well the audience has spoken - cold.
And the audience never got it wrong?

Strangely enough I really wonder why I bothered posting the deal in the 1st place with your warm receptive open minded attitude.

Now I know why I dont spend as much time on this site as I used to.....
Thanks op. Excellent deal. Have bought and will be using when my current Norton ends.
Have used NIS for years, great software
