"Overall Very Helpful"
Sidebar provides alot of information in a concise manner.
A number of good plug-ins to extend the functionality of the program
The privacy concerns are overblown since one can turn off the sharing across computers so no files will be transferred to google's servers. Its a nice attempt at offering a free alternative to gotomypc, but the cost of it and similar programs is justified by the extra security it provides
It can be a resource hog, especially during the initial crawl, do not use with anything less than 512mb of ram.
