I've been testing several commercial and open source packages to manipulate LIDAR and pointcloud data for GIS and terrain modeling including TopoGX, MeshLab, GRASS and several others that I won't mention. CloudCompare is without a doubt the best in terms of speed, intuitive controls and output options. The commercial solutions cost in excess of $300 USD and don't have a third of the functionality. I'm glad I stumbled across CloudCompare.
