Get it, it's good.

" Microsoft Security Essentials provides real-time protection for your home PC that guards against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a free* download from Microsoft that is simple to install, easy to use, and always kept up to date so you can be assured your PC is protected by the latest technology. It’s easy to tell if your PC is secure — when you’re green, you’re good. It’s that simple.

Microsoft Security Essentials runs quietly and efficiently in the background so that you are free to use your Windows-based PC the way you want—without interruptions or long computer wait times."

As it is also an Antivirus, is it compatible to run it together with either a Security Suite or with Avira, AVG, Avast antivirus etc?.

My advice would be to get rid of that commercial AV junk, but that's just my opinion.

I'm using it with G-Data 2010.

Thus far I'm very impressed with MSE, have seen no negative performance impact after installing, not a bad scanning speed, good detection rates from what I've heard. If Microsoft can stay on top of it, they really may have something great here.
