Has anybody tried MS Expression Studio? What's your opinion?

Fairly self explanatory title. I can find reviews online but wanted some “live” opinions.
Is Expression Studio easy to use? Are there any features it lacks that others in its price range
(<$150) have? Are there any its price range you’d recommend a lot more?

Thanks for any info.
ETA: I should perhaps add- I’m not a web professional and this isn’t for a business site or anything like, just some embedded files and pages (the type of stuff you could pretty much do in Frontpage back in the day).
