It gives photorealistic results and seems quick on still rendering. I couldn't find any description on how it's handeling big scenes or animations.

What's your opinion about this render engine? Would you buy it?

Seems like it can render a single chair, 2 planks, a cube and a mirror next to a bed quite nicely!

I meant that if such simple scenes are all there is in a gallery, it's usually not a good sign for the program its capabilities to take on something more complicated ;-)
Any raytracing engine can render scenes like theirs quick and easy.
Show me a raytracer with radiosity that can render a very complex scene (animated trees, ocean, sky, terrain, tons of foliage, people, cars, houses, reflections) in RT and I'll buy it.

Indeed, the scenes are not too heavy but it's the same editor that Fryrender which is an excellent product with really good rendering
interresting and follow  :-9

That's my dream, too.
Maybe Blender + Cycles will achieve this in the future.

Stick with Octane Render. I use it for 2 years now. It has interactive 3dsmax integration too.
Very cool. Plus you can choose between unbiased and biased rendering mode.

I did a lot of projects with it. You can see on www.pure3d.de in the showcase and projects section. At the moment I render 135 apartment floorplans as turntables and need only 10sec per frame.

I like the video but working in all this grain the whole day would make me crazy.
