Strictly a matter of personal choice - most do exactly the same thing - some just have a few extra features. The built-in utility does the job. Personally, I'm a fan of PerfectDisk.

There is nothing wrong with the Defragmenter included with Windows and although it takes a long time, it places the files for optimum performance for HDDs.

Regardless of whether it's free or paid, use a utility that has automatic defrag, VSS-aware defrag mode, can defrag in low space and can defrag system files.

Otherwise, it's not an improvement over the default defragger; it's just a vestigial utility (and probably unsafe, since it can move around all the files on the drive and mess up things badly).
