I really want to use this Varazdin Orchestral for shits and giggles, but I'd rather not waste my money. It's actually leagues better than GPO IMHO. Strings and brass (aside from trumpet) aren't half bad with Varazdin, but woodwinds suck. Maybe if you mixed Garritan and Varazdin you'd have a pretty decent sub-300 setup, but OH GOD THOSE TREMOLOS. O.o
Gotta back up whoever said GPO does have good woodwinds- they're better than most others. I sometimes use the flute in with EWQL and if the client ever comments on something in the piece they really like, it's always the flute. XD
I think orchestral plugins have a pretty big bass of "bad" (or in other words, just plain old) vsti- garritan, edirol, miroslav, etc.
