netspot as professional site survey program?

Hello all.

My company is looking to invest into a supplier of wifi survey tools.

I have used airmagnet survey pro and I like it.. But it is rather expensive.

My collegue then found netspot, it's for Mac OS only, I did a fast trial of it of it and performed a site survey of our office. It performed very well!

So before we buy and commit to this tool, has anyone used it alot and perhaps provide feedback?

I have not used it personally, but it has some very good features:

NetSpot is a software tool for Wireless networks assessment, scanning and surveys, analyzing Wi-Fi coverage and performance. It runs on Mac OS X 10.6+ and supports 802.11n, 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g wireless  networks. NetSpot uses the standard Wi-Fi network adapter and its  Airport interface to map radio signal strength and other wireless  network parameters and build reports on top of that.

It can do the following:

Wi-Fi mapping

Network optimization

Creating WiFi signal strength map

Wi-Fi network trouble-shooting

Wireless network visualisation

Wi-Fi signal problems diagnosing

Wireless network coverage analyzing
