A little "strange" that the big ones aren't reviewed...

It may be that these are out of cycle or not included in the regular on-demand scans. The first pdf reviews for Immunet and Qihoo refers to the regular on-demand scan for comparative purposes, see image.

Reason?
IObit doesn't even have a China Branch, it's completely America-based. The only thing it got to do with China is its Chinese funders.
With its licensed bitdefender engine and its own in-the-cloud database & heuristic engine, I don't think it's inferior to avast! or whatever.

The reasons are quite simple:

The most restrictive place for the INTERNET and data in general with constant government control cannot be trusted and cannot develop any software without the risk of Chinese government manipulation.

Installing Chinese softwares in your PC is like allowing cyber spies into your system.

The website is http://www.360.cn/

Piracy is Chinese middle name in any industry whether it is software or electronics or anything with a little reverse engineering to create a Chinese patent

And who needs another BitDefender engine

There is no english even in their website and their AV

Using Google translate makes the website really funny

Here is a quote:

Privacy protection v1.1Beta Edition 360
Real-time checks whether the file on your computer to be "peeping" ;D

360 Mobile Guardian v1.9Beta Edition
Anti-harassment ;D, anti-deductions, the protection of privacy

360 Net Shield v1.4 full version (360 security guards built-in)
Internet access is not online shopping is not being cheated poisoning tamper

Antivirus v1.2 full version 360 (twin engine)
Super lightweight rapid permanent free killing ;D

I am not sure if it is the problem with Google Translate

IObit is a software company based in Chengdu, China

After the incident with Malwarebytes, they ran a heavy PR campaign to minimize the damage and changed website info and software names

So if China is not mentioned in their website, it is no wonder
