I use holdem manager 3 and it is good all in one tool combining HUD and hand history collection and analyzing tools. It is very good package to improve your game. Focusing on the HUD - it is just tool which collects the information about the other players' game from your hand histories and gives it summarized as real time statistics. It can give you some edge if you know how to use this information or completely ruin your game if you do not know that. Think about it as a weapon - you can have great sword but if you do not know how to use it an enter battle with it result will not be good for you. HUD is not magical tool which tells you how to play and win easily.
I just started using DriveHud. I decided to use it because i only play micro stakes nad they offer licenses based on what stakes you play, so if i want to continue after the trial it will only cost me 10 bucks and not 90... After a week of using it i already encounter a bunch of tough spots in which the available data helped a lot to make good decisions. Don't think i will play without one anymore.
What i also like is that it helps a lot in analyzing your game. Sure, you could use a hand replayer, but being able to sort and filter hands is so much more powerful... After the first few sessions i looked at my hands sorted by hole cards and there were some really interesting things to learn by seeing each starting hands profit and winrate...

The thing is though that if you enter a battle with a sword against an unarmed opponent ( player with no HUD ) then you probably won't have to be a very skilled swordfighter to kill him.... So even with little knowledge about the stats you instantly get a huge advantage over recreational players with no HUD.
