I'm a long time Redrum devotee but as I started using
fruity more and more I really needed a vsti drum
sampler. The market is not terribly competitive, with
DR 008 and Battery being the two main opitons.

I found DR 008 incredible ugly and unintuitive, but
it is well liked on this forum. As for battery:

gui: basically good, oversized, and the 1 color
flashing hit light would have been a bit more tasteful.
I think this would be a better instrument with 10-
20 cells.(there are 54)

sounds: 20 very nice kits, i would have a liked real
808/909 kit instead of the more generic '80's drums';
but these sounds are around. Particularly nice is the
reactor kit, with lots of funky noises. The accoustic
kits are nice. I did not notice any multilayer patches,
but I really haven't had it long.

sound quality: How can you f*ck up a drum sampler?--
oh yeah--Reason. No funky gain/grain issues here.

One big thumbs up; try the demo...Battery consisitantly crashed Sonar when I tried to create a custom drum map.
