I really like the sunburst charts that Scanner produces, over the tree view charts that Spacemonger and other alternatives produce. I find it's far superior to tracking down space hogs.

The GUI is a bit annoying though. The only way to make the window bigger or smaller, is by using the + and - buttons, and it only goes up to about 800x700 pixels. You can't maximize it, and you can't resize using the lower right corner of the window.
