Looks very interesting, but without a demo to test it, I can't say whether it will meet my needs, and I don't want to buy it without being sure.

While the feature set isn't as rich as some of the big names yet, it's off to a good start, with decent features (in addition to the tree view side panel, and filter box is very useful, too), clean and fast. The author is very responsive, and the price is right.

At last a Finder with a tree view panel! I have been waiting for this forever. First impressions: works as promised, fast, very light resource consumption and looks and, again, works great. Highly recommended!
