[Tig] Noise Reduction Redux

In order to express this question cogently, I need to exclude film grain reduction. Much as I dislike to do so, because I think the processes for grain reduction developed over the decades have contributed in wonderful ways.
The question is this: Neat Video has a plugin for AfterEffects that seems impressive. DVNR, from Digital Vision, does other things magical. The Gary Demos-developed systems have come a long way.
I pose this question not in any way as a representative of my employer (Dolby Laboratories). Rather, I would like to know the feeling of colorists for their NR tool of choice *when dealing with digital capture* and when the material at hand is exposure-challenged.
My own benchmark for noise is Alexa, at about 14 stops.
Any feedback much appreciated!.
