O&K Print Watch is a print manager to control and audit printing costs in your organization. It helps managers learn about the true cost of printing in the company by monitoring all print jobs regardless of whether they are submitted onto a local or networked printer. Supporting multiple printing devices and unique printing pricing combined with per-user quotas and audit of all print jobs makes it possible to cut down printing costs and save on printing.
O&K Print Watch is a powerful printing audit tool. Keeping track on print jobs and paper usage for all local and network printers, the printer monitor records who used a particular printing device, what and when was printing. Electronic images of all print jobs can be saved for managerial review. O&K Print Watch track exact user names, date and time, and records the exact number of pages and printing parameters for each printing job. The high precision page counter allows accounting all printing jobs up to the last page.

$100 for something that shows a PRINT QUEUE? And it's almost 9Mb in size? Hahaha! (pulls lever and watches this program fall through a trapdoor)

It seems, you never even install this product and write your review based only on screenshots.

It seems you haven't worked for a big enterprize-size company where most of users share printers (desktop printers are way more expensive than networked printers when you look at TCO).
Now, about the tool, it looks like it is designed for small businesses and not for medium sized to big companies. It's UI shows this approach and I seriously doubt this application is scalable enough to handle 500 to 700 print queues.
Reviewing 4.00 Build 552 Beta (Apr 9, 2006)
I wish companies would assess the market value before they try to charge for products. $100 is awfully steep for a program that just shows a print queue.
This looks to be of best use for a company with networked computers sharing printers. Single users would have little use since there's a built-in function. But while there may be many companies that would use this program, very few do the level of printing that would need something like this.
