You can buy it at RegNow for that price.
Easy to use, good help.
Uses a lot of CPU, performance.

The interface is quite simple (may I say, too simple), with few buttons; some parts of the interface are scrappy. I found annoying some popups on the software (those for trial-version, and those "appear only once").

When scanning, it uses more CPU than I expected, with only 14 MB RAM. The scan took also more that expected (1 minute 12 seconds), and in the end found 348 problems out of 472 (73% detection rate). It took 14 seconds to fix 348 errors, but on a rescan (1 minute and 2 seconds) found another 120 errors, although it was 30 seconds from last scan/fix. After three complete scans and fixes, there were no more reported errors. Registry defragmentation is very good, but requires rebooting.

The price is approximately the same as other similar software.
