Vitalizer is a special plugin for doing stereo widening, because some mojo makes things more effective than a typical widening. I agree it can sound thin and labored, but that's what we do to reach a mix :) I may not trust it on master buss, but for mixing it's an A+ tool. Check out the user manual!
Amazing but thin
Amazing mixing and even mastering tool to get a cleaner sound. The only problem is that it might make your single busses or the master buss a bit too thin and clean (ending up sounding very boring and bland if overdone). Use sparingly! I wish it had an option to go a little bit further to make the sounds more thick and warm instead of just thin and smooth. Nonetheless: It's 100% worth it if you get your hands on this plugin in a sale.

Good quality, stereo with is good, but it's found within many plug-in now. High end saturation emphasis is really good. But the low end thump shift the signal out of the mid channel to the sides. Not always desired. The mid changes, but most of the time in a natural way. Overall a good quality plug-in. But you often don't need it
AWESOME !!!!!! Just get it!!!! Extremely versatile, well placed on individual tracks , mono or stereo, and superb on any buss. Just amazing !!!
Oh boy. This guy has a small GUI but every knob is loaded with function. Insane. Nothing works as is labeled but with my off label use, I’ve been able to get mix cutting sounds. Excellent. Stereo width, sizzle, drive , a bizarre EQ, bout all in all will musically color your sound. Great days!
