Aurora HDR. Is it better than what's already out there?

I'm inclined to agree with you. The image alignment and de-ghosting are very satisfactory but I found it slow compared to its 64bit rivals. I will not be buying it after my trail expires.

I haven't had any issue w/ it other than the install issue.

I don't get ghosting, it's completely controllable IMO.
I don't use the pre-sets as they are very heavy handed, although you can control how much they are applied.
It's relatively fast on my machine, but I'm running 32gb RAM and an SSD.

A couple of workflow-related observations that I would think toned to be addressed to make the software more adaptable to peoples' existing HDR workflow.

1) The app needs to be able to read and write standard HDR formats for 32bit files - EXR at a minimum.
2) The batch processor is ok and provides options that allow the user to crunch several series of HDR exposure brackets; however, and ironically, I cannot find a way to save the merged exposures to the Aurora native HDR file format (the .mpaur2 format). There is also no way to specific multiple save formats for a single image/exposure sequence - that is, batch all of these brackets and output a .mpaur2 master file and a tone-mapped LDR JPEG with this preset I made applied to it.

Come on. Two major omissions that have nothing to do with the wizardry of the tone mapper, etc. I did purchase the application and I am continuing to test it.
