I could care less about the features since I only use the basic image and restore and even at that, it is done manually; not scheduled but that's not for everybody. A problem with all software is that after the basic and a few worthwhile enhancements are added, the additional stuff becomes less useful for most users and this will then begin the shouts of "bloatware". Unfortunately, when it comes to marketing there is the perpetual race to list everything it does and try to make the product look superior to one that doesn't have some esoteric, albeit virutally useless, feature.
Seems to me there is a slightly overblown paranoia about Reflect becoming lease only since the perpetual is still listed as an option and we certainly don't know what is coming down the road.
I also don't have a hard and fast rule on subscriptions and it really varies on your personal circumstances. I have a MS 365 subscription and being current with all the products the 1TB of OneDrive makes it a good choice for me.
