I've been using RAV for some time now and couldn't be more pleased with it.  Virus definition updates can be 100% automated with a CRON job.  I have mine set to do incremental updates every 30 minutes.  The other thing that I like about RAV is that it is very easy to set up the mail server version to scan shares on your samba network.  $300US is well worth the money for the excellent product.
