I would download:

Photo Ninja

Topaz DeNoise

Neat Image

Define

Imagenomic Noiseware

DenoiseMyImage

and try them all to see which handles the noise from your camera the best and which look you prefer best.

I use Noise Ninja 3 which comes with the excellent Photo Ninja ( which will soon also be a Photoshop plug-in). It handles noise completely different to Noise Ninja 2 and I much prefer it.

These NR programs can be quite expensive, up to $100 which I guess is OK if you take a lot of high ISO shots or like to have a lot more control over how the NR works. Personally I like to keep NR to a minimum and don't like to spend a long time on one photo so I feel like spending $100 on NR software wouldn't be good value for money. Instead I just upgraded to Photo Ninja for $97 and got an excellent raw converter as well.
