YourKit memory profiler is good?

I've seen the intellij guys mention this software a couple time. I've been using JProfiler recently, and found that to be a big improvement over JProbe and OptimimizeIt. Has anyone compared YourKit to JProfiler?

I've been taking part in the 3.1 EAP for YourKit the past month and I have to admit I was pretty impressed.

Though I have tried both I'm not entirely sure how it compares to JProfiler for the profiling experts as I have to admit I'm still a profiling beginner and purely tried YourKit upon JetBrains recommendation. In spite of that I have to say that I was impressed overall with the quality of the product (especially for an EAP) and the way it integrates with IDEA too.

It's pricing policy is also very impressive when you consider it is only $63 (50e) for a personal license, something which EJ-Technologies don't even offer as an option but is ideal for people like me who can't necessarily rely upon corporate funding for development tools.

I'm going to buy a full license for myself soon which is something that I could never afford to do for JProfiler. Needless to say that it's most definitely worth a look if you haven't done so already.
