    Think I'll give this a trial run... 30 days is plenty of time to see how Topaz compares to what I can do with Photoshop's Smart Sharpen, Unsharp Mask, Shake Reduction tools and/or using a High Pass filter. $60 for a single tool isn't cheap, but neither is it a King's ransom if the results are fast and consistently good.

    Hope you will add your thoughts after trying it, my ability with PP is just a little limited.

    Click on the split window icon. Then you can drag the split line back and forth to see before and after

    Yes i use that but still don't get to se the full edit results until ime back in photoshop, i think its because i have to view the result at 100% or larger while in topaz, if its high ISO images they look better reduced.
