Windows Defender is good enough for home users with a PC connected to the internet as it uses cloud-based reputation service for optimal security. The AV has one of the worst offline detection rate. If you use your PC without internet connection or connectivity to the cloud is lost, it will affect the performance of Windows defender.

Check Microsoft Defender March 2022 test results -> Malware Protection Test March 2022
Many of the products in the test make use of cloud technologies, such as reputation services or cloud-based signatures, which are only reachable if there is an active Internet connection. By performing on-demand and on-access scans both offline and online, the test gives an indication of how cloud-dependent each product is, and consequently how well it protects the system when an Internet connection is not available.

I had bought the 3 year subscription. Used for maybe 1½ - 2 years and then deleted. It felt like it wasn't adding much to the security. Moreover it kept on sending random prompts and pop-ups everyday which was a pain.
