Click to expand. There could be some options that are available in that program that are machine centric that may or may not be in the 3rd party rips. I don't know if that's the case or not, but in my experience with the machines that I deal with, there is some functionality that is not available in programs that support a multitude of machine formats. Now, the question becomes, is that functionality worth that price (I have a copy of both as having that one program just to insert those functions is actually worth it).

3rd party still has more power/productivity. It just doesn't work in one or two key areas that this other program does and they are major key points. This is also only for 1 brand of machine, this is more then likely not the case in other brands, this argument only applies to one brand.
They rest of it is clunky, it's not bad for it's price point, but clunky, unrefined in how it works. Make no mistake about it though, if there is enough of a customer base for it, it's worth it and we aren't talking chump change for either program. In to hear responses as well. Price shows $1,099 on the roland site now. If it lives up to the hype it sounds promising.but for that coin I think i'd rather have an aftermarket rip that can run a printer/cutter of any brand combination. I figured if it's only good for machines that range from $15-30k, maybe they'd drop the price a bit since we already bought the machinery.closer to 250-500. And a TRIAL would be nice too, since I would prefer to try it for a month before I buy.
Based on Roland's past support with printers, I wouldn't buy this before I knew it worked 100% otherwise I'm gonna end up with a USB stick paper weight because lord knows they're not taking it back or helping solve the problem - it's always something besides the product with the Roland Logo on it.
