ESETPanda Security
Versions:

ESET Nod32 Antivirus 6 - Nod32 is the ESET entry level product. It provides sophisticated antivirus and antispyware, as well as Host Based Intrusion Protection System (aka restricting certain programs from changing settings to something malicious). Nod32 also has an antirootkit which detects spyware attempting to hide from the operating system.

ESET Smart Security 6 - Very similar to Nod32 Antivirus 6 but with a few enhanced features including an intelligent firewall, anti-spam capabilities and parental control options.
Versions:

Panda Antivirus Pro 2013 - Panda Antivirus Pro 2013 is the Panda entry level product. It provides the standard antivirus and spyware protection for your PC which updates via the cloud. It has a firewall, USB drive scanner, and a sandbox environment for safe web browsing. It even provides a virtual keyboard if you need to enter a password without typing (aka protection against keyloggers).

Panda Internet Security 2013 - Panda Internet Security 2013 includes everything Antivirus Pro has but goes further in the protection. The Internet Security version has feature such as anti-spam technology, online backup, parental controls, and even remote pc access!

Panda Global Protection 2013 - Panda Global Protection 2013 adds even more features. Go with Global Protection if you want PC optimization, file encryption, file shredding, and a password manager.
Strengths:

ESET has a very impressive resume. They score very high on antivirus tests at basically everything. They rank #2 out of 20 antivirus suites at accuracy. You can see the report here. They also rank #3 in performance (another AV Comparatives test).
ESET Cybersecurity for Mac provides a convenient solution for Mac users.
An AntiRootKit is a very nice feature because root kit threats can be a nightmare to deal with so its great if ESET is able to detect those.
Strengths:

As always we love a virtual sandbox environment and that comes standard even with the entry level Panda Antivirus Pro.
Not many antivirus solutions provide remote pc access. That's a very nice feature that you get if you are upgraded to the Internet Security version.
Panda is pretty darn good at speed and performance. It scored a ranking of #9 out of 21 on the AV Comparatives Performance Test.
