Neat Image - Noise Reduction
Tried the demo version...the noise reduction filter did quite a neat job! Anybody tried before?

Yes, I agree that it does a superb job of noise reduction, especially those high ISO stuff. So many options to tweak... However, although it is rather slow, I don't mind as I usually process only those of very high noise level. I have not bought it as the program is NOT a Photoshop plugin. It is very disruptive to the workflow where you do RAW->TIFF->Photoshop if you have paid for the full software. I'm awaiting it to become a plugin before I buy it.

Are they looking into a plug-in version? Was tempted to purchase but seems quite ex at ~$50 USD

It works very well to remove grain from Film scans as well.

It does not work well on areas with tiny details.
For example, you have a picture of the tar road. The texture of the road will look wierd after apply the filter. It's a little like using a sponge and wiping patches of the road smooth.
Over filter will make faces in portraits look like dolls.
