It all depends on what you need to do. Here is a link to side-by-side comparisons of the paid version and freeware (paid is relatively inexpensive!). You can't do encryption, compression is for speed only, not size, no wizards, no table level restores, no support...I guess it depends on what your needs truly are. For normal backups and restores with compression, it should be fine.

I highly recommend Red Gate SQLBackup. Last I checked, pricing was much more reasonable and performs just as well if not better. It also supports object level recovery.

I am using IDERA SQLSafe and have found it to be a great tool to use for compressed backups. It runs rather quickly. I have not been using the free version. I have used Lightspeed and have found it to be good as well. I am using the IDERA version because I also use IDERA's virtual database software which is awesome. It restores their backup very very fast. I tested Redgate and found it to take at least twice as long as IDERA. The only issue I have with IDERA is their tech support leaves a lot to be desired, but I've seen worse.
