    It has best performance(cpu consumption) than Sandboxie but, the high security seems to be the best characteristic.

    Costs $21.65 EACH year... which is WAY too much. And Sandboxie has countless positive reviews, which Shade lacks.

    Sandboxie - once a great program is now extremely buggy in the latest Windows 10. Windows Sandbox while it is a light VM just works out of the box and is meant to be used as a Sandbox.

    It is not for the common user for protection. As stated on their website, "BUFFERZONE is available to Enterprise companies only.". You must request a demo first.
