I personally use Vegas Pro 10 AND Pinnacle Studio ( a little bit). Pinnacle is nice for some consumerish functions that sadly the pro versions tend to ignore. And not just cheesy stuff, there is definite functionality.
Pinnacle is actually pretty good if you are just editing home movies etc. The newest version you can purchase with Magic Bullet Looks (SE) along with some other Red Giant plug ins. This is MUCH BETTER than Magic Bullet Quick Looks (the cheaper option addon for Vegas and other NLEs) as you have control over different functions of the look. If you want anything near that for Vegas you have to pay $400 JUST for the addon. Now when you look at Pinnacle Studio running around $100 and it goes far above and beyond just the Red Giant plugins do with an NLE included. Highly recommended!
