Sophos Antivirus vs Eset

I am considering moving from Symantec Antivirus to either Sophos or Eset. I have heard good things about both, but at one person says that Eset might be sometimes screwy. I have two Windows 2003 servers, one Windows Storage Server 2003 and 25 Windows client machines, including XP, Vista and Windows 7.

I'd like to know whether the antiruses are easy to deploy and use. Also, I'd like to know what their technical support is like.

Symantec AV has been hard to upgrade (had to roll-back recently) and has caused me some network failures.

After changing a lot of anti-virus software I noticed that they are almost the same !
Make sure to choose the one with the lowest consumption on resources , faster engine , and better protection !

There are some web sites that compares some products not very reliable I would say but still you can see some charts-results and make up tour mind !

As for the technical support you should address to the vendors or the resellers !
