I'm debating which version of visual studio to purchase or not to purchase.  I've used VS 2010 professional in the past and didn't have a lot of issues with it.  I was wondering if anybody out there has used the features out there associated with premium and ultimate and if they feel if any of them are useful.  Particularly useful enough to justify the increase in cost.  Obviously that would depend on my particular situation but I'm mainly looking to see what others experiences have been.

I'm also interested in other people experience with the express edition compared to professional.  Not quite as interested since I've already used the professional version I can download and compare the free express edition fairly easily.

Personally I haven't figured out why I'd need to go beyond the professional edition.  Some of the features sound nice but I feel like I can do without them.
