Sophos or Malwarebytes?

I’ve been using Malwarebytes for a few years now, but I’ve recently been heavily recommended Sophos by two of my friends (both of them have a background in it-security).

I’ll have to change my AV soon, but before deciding on wether to change to Sophos or continue with Malwarebytes, I’d like to know what this reddit community thinks, and also if there’s any resources where I can look at detailed performance tests between the two. Most of the comparisons I find online compare completely useless stuff like how the interface looks or how easy it is to use and stuff like that which I really don’t care about, so I’m not sure how useful those comparisons are.

I should probably also clarify that I am talking about the paid versions, so “**Malwarebytes Premium”** and “**Sophos Home”**, not the free versions and that I will be using it on a Windows machine, not on Mac.



The paid version of Malwarebytes is extremely bad, it always have been, on top of its extremely large performance impact and resource usage, Sophos suffers from the same awful performance impact and resource usage, I would use neither.
