I’m using Vray since the first beta days some years before. Over the years I used Vray for pro viz work daily. It’s a strong tool and I could live without it. The combination of Vray and Rhino is great.
But I’m really not happy with the new v3 UI. My work speed is much slower than at v2, since a lot more of clicks and scrolling is needed. I want to motivate the new v3 testers to be critical. My impression is a lot of new users create light scenes with some objects and think, oh modern UI look, faster render speed and anything is fine. They are happy about the new features and want to be kindly.
But for complex scenes and if you want to check a current option setup and to edit it, it’s a pain. So, please new testers, think about the UI workflow. For me - I don’t need big sliders everywhere, I need a quick access to the options. I’m working on a 4k screen and have more screens space problems than before. Some old long time pro users posted a lot of UI suggestions at the chaosgroup beta forum, but we don’t get the developing team motivated to refine the UI. The voices of the old render geeks doesn’t count so much like of the blended newbies (sorry ), but on the long run we all will lost productivity.

Here one of the dozen examples of the new current v3 UI:
and here like it could be cleaned up, a lot of space saved:
