After testing Disk Drill free, I bought Disk Drill Pro to recover photos (NEF RAW) from a memory card. Before buying, I tested a number of other alternatives and found that Disk Drill (1) had the nicest interface, (2) was by far the fastest, (3) found/recovered files as well as or better than others.
I can't speak to other use cases, but for recovering photos from a memory card it worked flawlessly, and though more expensive than other options, was worth the purchase price for me.

Different situations will have different results, and maybe there was some key difference between your situation and mine - how the files had been deleted, what had happened since, what kind of images they were.
I also didn't share your support experience - I had a prompt and helpful reply to a pre-sales question.
I could have used the (free) tool http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec which also worked reasonably well. However, I opted for Disk Drill for the reasons above, and also because it was the only one of the options I tried which was also able to recover the filenames of the images.
Whether it works as well for me next time (if there is a next time - hopefully I'll be more careful in future), only time will tell.

And regarding strange coincidences, I can assure you I have no connection whatsoever to Disk Drill other than having bought it yesterday. While I have not been the most active person on MacUpdate, you can see from my profile that I haven't just appeared from nowhere to leave a positive review.
For the record, the person who I was emailing with from Disk Drill asked me to rate it on MacUpdate which I was happy to do.

Nicely designed, simple to use... perfect for keeping track of video files. The developer has been very responsive to suggestions and quick to make changes so full marks on that count too. Highly recommended.

Works well as advertised. It's great to have settings change automatically depending on your location without having to think about it.
Initially I had a problem getting it to work, but the developer responded quickly and efficiently and the problem was resolved quickly.
Great app + friendly and responsive developer = worth every penny!

Hands down this is the best todo list manager I have ever used. Things has a simple, attractive interface, which never gets in the way of helping me to get things done.
