Pretty much all string libraries sound synthetic compared to the real thing.

Harsher sounding string libraries like NOVO, are great because you don't wind up sounding like everything else all the time.

Since these sort of tools are nothing like the real thing, the advantage is, you can use your imagination and get a totally different sound. I don't subscribe to the notion of trying to sound like real string sections with sample libraries; it's living in denial and has stultified a lot of writers trying to get the so-called real thing.
