My notes don't record exactly how many times someone has raised preflop, on the flop, on the turn and river. Nor do they give me an aggression factor like PAHUD does. My notes, and I take lots, are about specific behaviour in hands and general notes about the players approach. Usually this is supported by the stats in PAHUD and vice-versa. If they don't tally then it's cause for paying even closer attention.
No matter how much attention you are paying to a table, the level of detail provided by these tools will add more information. As you say it must be used in context along with every other piece of information but used correctly it's really valuable.
I will say that once I get to the final table of MTTs I switch the tools off as the play doesn't really lend itself to the same analysis, but for early to mid-late tourny play it's always on.
