Default avast! or NOD32?

I'm not sure which one to have. I currently have avast! Antivirus installed and I really like it because it's not heavy and has proved to be quite protectful. It's simple to use and has many protection programs and seems professional to me. Last time I installed NOD32 it was weird and didn't know quite how to work it, but people say it's strong and light .. so which one should I really go for?

Thanks in advance.

avast if you don't want to pay, NOD if you don't mind a subscription fee. There's a few tutorials around on how to properly configure NOD...

I have NOD32 and love it. Catches everything.

Things are explained about multiple AVs in this thread.

Raffaz had a link on how to use and setup NOD32. If he still has that, that might help you understand it better.

If you're willing to pay for it, NOD32 is the best.

Avast! is alright, I'm currently using AVG Free Edition with Vista though. I don't quite have the money for NOD32 yet.
