What do you like best?
What I like the most about toolbag is how fast you get results with little effort. You can display models and setup lights with ease so you can see the render as you move things around.
If you have animation attached to your model you can play it as well.
The price is quite accessible and it's being updated constantly with new features.
What do you dislike?
It needs a way to save the camera position so you can switch between shots (might be implemented soon).
Since its a GPU renderer it requires a very good graphic card with at least 2gb memory.
Recommendations to others considering the product
This is quite the best GPU render engine I have worked with. It's very easy to use and renders really fast, I highly recommend it specially to freelance artists.
You would benefit of its power by using a graphic card with more than 2gb memory.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I use Vray but it's too time consuming mostly finding the right configuration to have good looking renders. With Toolbag I can focus on the look of the shot instead of doing endless preview renders trying to find the best render setting, also Toolbag renders very quickly in seconds instead of hours, I plan to switch to Toolbag soon.
Of course the renders are not physically accurate like you would expect from render engines like Vray, but you can get beautiful renders with very little effort with Toolbag so you can spend more time creating your assets and scenes instead of figuring render settings.
