I've used [nearly] all the free and cheaper commercial visual diff programs out there. When dealing with very large comparisons, they all crash and give up. Araxis Merge goes right through to the end. With my budget, I can't say it's worth $200, but it really is the best out there. There's a lot more going on besides a 3-column comparison.

Integration with time machine is very nice. Right click on a file in the finder, select a previous version, and it opens in a diff window.

Expensive, but you get a solid, fast, quality app.
