When a free service really is better than the paid ones
Have a look at this you-tube link and consider the consequences of paying for paid services, when they do not provide the results you expect. Free can be good and better than paid Malware and DNS services.
Look at the method, do you see any faults - the person appears to be totally objective.

Well, if you expect that, yes. It's been a long time since I expected price to be any determinant of quality.
Back in the day when I was doing a lot of reviewing of antiviral programs, I very strongly recommended any program or system that provided or allowed a "free" version for home or small business use. Partly this was because allowing for a version that could be widely distributed helped reduce the risk for everyone. (the "bastion" model of security is a lie. But I digress.) But I also noted that those who did provide "free" versions were also those with the best and most useful programs.
(I also recall an anecdote from those days: somebody accosted Fridrik Skulason, maker of F-Prot [which allowed Data Fellows to get its start], and said that he was charging too little for his excellent program, and that he should charge more. Skulason shrugged and replied, "I made a millions dollars last year. What more do I need?")
