And the blocks: popular items, recent  items, related projects.

You need to mark related items manually via admin panel what is not very comfortable. There is no Similar items block, im my opinion it is very important block for internet store.  There is no personal admin panel for the customers.

This is not just a drupal template, but a whole drupal installation. You can dowload only a theme of course. Installation differes from the theme by that you download not only the theme files but adjusted Drupal with the pages, items, adjusted views and with  all the stuff that is needed to be adjusted. It is important becuase the theme`s author create styles for the elements and you are able to see all these elements on the site using the installation.  In addition it is very important when you need to test items fast when it is not clear if they are relevant or not. There are  payment modules in this installation. There are a lot of  dev modules as disadvantage. 

In my opinion, paid drupal website templates are more finished and perfect than free.
