I've been using balance now for about 3 months and I'd have to say it definitely is worth the extra moolah for the extra production avenues it opens up. In my case not having decent recording hardware was becoming a real barrier. Balance has allowed me to breach that obstacle whilst providing the helpful clip safe feature which is massively handy if you've not done much recording before.
It probably really depends on what you intend to do with the software, but if you have any inclination that you'll want to do live recording then balance is probably the best way to go.
