    Of all Adobe alternatives I tried, this one has the best rendering.

    It may be expensive, but of course it supports Windows 7 x32 and x64, no problem at all. And, in my experience, the rendering is excellent.

    The accuracy of the font rendering in PDF Factory is absolute rubbish.

    This is not a bad product. But I do not think it is as competitive a product as it could / should be.

    There are many free apps that do much of what this one does, and some do it at least as well.

    That said, it is a bargain compared to purchasing the entire Adobe version, and if you need those higher-end features that only come with the paid versoin of this product, I think it is a solid alternative to the Adobe original.

    I feel a rating fo 3.0 is fitting, given all of this.
