"This plugin lacks ONE thing that the hardware versions do."
I expect to use this plugin for quite some time, but if BBE updates the plugin so that it doesn't require an Output Gain control knob, I'll be getting that instead! The hardware BBE 482i and 882i don't use an Output Gain control knob and I hope that a future plugin doesn't either!
This plugin most definitely emulates what the hardware 482i and 882i do, and that is to bring clarity into my songs.
Puts clarity into the songs I use for my deejay mixes. I can apply a BBE effect to each individual song. It really is, like having a rackful of BBE Sonic Maximizers... one for each song!
No problems in installation. No scratches on the installation CD. The installation CD is in a CD envelope and flops around in the box. In my case, the CD was already out of the envelope when I opened the box.
The effect you get out of this plugin is worth the price.

Haven't had to use tech support.
The Wow Factor
Just for asthetic reasons, I wish different skins could be applied to the plugin. But who cares about that?! This thing puts clarity into the songs I use!
