I have used Clam alone and in combination with Trend and Sophos
Clam has updated faster than either of these two. It works fast
(particularly if you use clamd), and is stable. Updation is via
freshclam, which can use a list of mirrors.
My setup is Postfix + Amavisd-new + Clamav + SpamAssassin.
It works reasonably well. The maximum load I have seen is about 20
mails/sec at peak on a P III 600 MHz, with 1 GiB of RAM, also running
Courier pop3d and imapd, squirrelmail over https and mailman on 1 x
9GB(everything except home) + 1 x 36 GB (home).
Maximum delay under these circumstances was 5 seconds.
