Red Gate Software

Last week, I received a new laptop.  For the past few days, I've been installing all of the applications that I need.  Today, I decided to tackle Red Gate's SQL Compare.  On my old laptop, I was running version 3.  I hadn't kept a copy of the installation, so I went to their site to see if I could download it.  I couldn't find version 3, so I decided to download the new version to see if my serial number would work as I wasn't sure if we had renewed our support contract.  My serial number didn't work in version 5.  I e-mailed them to find out if I could get version 3 anywhere.  I had a response within 25 minutes!  They sent me the link to download version 3 on their ftp site. 

I was amazed at how fast they replied to my e-mail and that they helped me out even though we did not have a current support contract.  I have always recommended their products in the past, now I can attest to their excellent customer support.

But they've only got one product to support, SQL Compare. All of their other products are under spec'd and waaaay to simple for the price - I like my apps to but full fat when I pay that much for them.

Pricing seems low to me. Could you provide an example? Is there a competitive product that does the same thing and beats the price? If so, I'd be very interested as we may be purchasing tools down the road.
