I've been using Nuance's Power PDF Advanced since it was first released. I started with the 30-day free trial and then acquired a license. I really like the product — I think it is excellent! I've published one article and two videos here at EE about it. The article is Batch Conversion of PDF and TIFF files via Command Line Interface:

The videos are 5-minute Micro Tutorials called Bates Stamping/Numbering of PDF Files with Power PDF Advanced:

and Convert Scanned Image-Only PDF Files to PDF Searchable Image Files via OCR with Power PDF Advanced:

I tested the free trial of Wondershare's PDF Editor and did not like it as much as Power PDF Advanced. However, that is somewhat of an unfair comparison, as I did not use PDF Editor very heavily — I stopped using it after a short while and did not buy a license. I hope some other folks jump in who have made heavier, production use of PDF Editor. Will be interesting to see what they have to say. But I continue to be very pleased with Power PDF Advanced and I do think that it represents a reasonably priced alternative to Acrobat Professional (a good example is Bates Numbering, which is available only in Acrobat Pro, not Acrobat Standard — but note that it's available only in Power PDF Advanced, not Power PDF Standard). All of that said, I do a lot of work with PDF files, so I also have licensed copies of Acrobat Standard X and Acrobat Professional XI. Sometimes you just can't beat the "real deal". :)  Regards, Joe
