"free AV are basic and limited" I guess is my real digging point. I can't find anything that says they're limited or untrusted in any specific way.

So avoiding the following, SSLs (free or paid) use the same security/encryption;
  • SSL Badge from SSL Provider
  • Extended Validation (EV SSL - Green Bar)
  • Guarantee Insurance ($10k-$1.5M
  • Registration Length (1-2 years)
  • Installation Support (web hosts provide this too)
  • Wildcard SSL Ability

So did I miss anything?
No validity checks with free SSL certs

Free SSLs gives a way for fraudsters to deceive consumers as fraudsters wont pay for an SSL
