Yes, I did have a demo version of the 259 version and played with it. The main difference is with the expensive one, you can do multi-plane layouts and it will give you the degree the tube needs to be turned between bends. On the cheap version, it is all single plane bends, and you can use the templates, or a custom sheet which allows up to six bends.
Here is another program that allows multiplane bends and templates as well for $130. Bend Calculator Pro
