You make a good point, but my experience with a premiuim Linkedin account was great.
Frankly it gave me a little bit of extra confiendence when I was applying for jobs. Sure I got the membership for free for a month, but I don't find it to be a coicidence that during that time I applied to more jobs and got more interviews.
On a professional side, some high performing recruiters can reap a great deal of benefit from the registered recruiting designation. There is added funtionality there, however not everyone needs it.
Even a placebo has an effect, sometimes when you're job hunting a boost of confidence goes a long way.
If you're surfing linkedin trying to find new business opportunities and you expect to generate leads from joining groups and building relationships you probably don't need a pro-account.
But if you are searching for 300 accountants that can speak Spanish and English, you might want database search function.

I checked out both versions and I didn't see a too much difference between the paid and the normal profile. And I say this as a normal LinkedIn user who has a company page also. I don't see the benefits of paying when you actually don't get any real benefit out of it. With the money spent on the upgrade you can better set up an ad and get some leads or direct relevant people to your company's page or products.
