Very easy to install and use. The layout looks nice and there are a few templates to choose from to fit the layout of your website. The component is used by linking it to a menu item and a category is chosen, SectionEx does the rest, very easy. There are many options to tailor the component to your needs and it makes it easy to set it up the way you want it.

The support team is awesome, even for a free component! I'm willing to pay for the pro-edition of the component, just for the support alone! Highly recommended!

Like the 1.5 version,the componate has a slick look missing from most article listing componates however its intergrations with other third party componates such as K2 is pretty much limited.For joomla core news its perfect,otherwise without K2 or other article listing componate support,is a dud.
