I too am trying this software out and am looking for reviews. On the surface I like it but since I have installed the trial I have found two occurances of replication stopping with no alarms getting raised by Spotlight which is not good.

In the end, I wound up uninstalling it. Catching issues with replication is the main reason why we started looking at it in the first place and since there were occurrences of replication getting borked that it didn’t catch (which to be fair, ms replication monitor thought everything was hunky-dorey too until you drilled down into the subscription), it wasn’t worth the money they were asking (even after they tried enticing me with a 6 month free trial).
