Is McAfee antivirus any good?

I know McAfee sucking has been a thing for quite a while now. I know about how it used to suck etc. Although now in 2018, it would have had to improve over the years, right 

Reason is, my dad bought McAfee full protection softwear (with the rebate he pays $0, which is why he did it) and the protection can go on 10 different devices. I figure a full, complete antivirus that was bought would be better than regular level free antivirus. So I'm just wondering if I should uninstall my free avg (although I did buy AVG internet security for now) and put this on it. I put it on his laptop and so far its running as any other antivirus would (display, settings, options etc all seem to be the regular stuff) . Serious thoughts on it?
