ODude Ecards
The component looks like it would to the best job of satisfying my customer's requirements so I was greatly disappointed when I was unable to get customization of the cards to work at all. Nor was I was able to do it on their demo site. Nor was I able to get a response from the. Glad I didn't have to pay in order to test it.

JEvents
I have a client who wanted a cosmetically attractive display, complex options for recurring events, and SIMPLE front-end event entry so his customers could enter their own events. A very tough combination. I looked at every possible component/module/package. I even bought a couple. In the end, the flexibility of JEvents (custom fields, custom event entry, and custom display)coupled with their excellent and timely support (and patience with me) won the day.

FastBroadcast-Calendar
It would appear that I tried to use this too soon. I downloaded the component and modules as well and the program for the PC. Nothing yielded any results and NO documentation. In fact, the PC application would not even load and Norton issued warnings but I proceeded anyway. This extension should not be listed until ready.
Owner's reply

Hi Billy Bob, yes it's true, the approval time for the component on joomla.org came faster than we believed. We still work to publish any required information on our page.
The message during the installation process comes because we are not willing to buy an expensive zertificat from microsoft.
The first start of the desktop software will show a login dialog and an option to register. We urgently need valid user registrations, because any user has the ability to publish events to any requesting application.
Another problem might be that we are not native english speakers. The content on fastbroadcast is written in german. At this time the system is most usefull for Germany, Austria and Swisse but we will do our best to give anyone who is interested in this system support on the forum at fastbroadcast.de.

NS Pro
Not only is is an easy to use and implement component that works as advertised, but whenever I had problems (download issues, never the software) Chris has immediately responded. Whenever I had questions about the component, his responses have been quick and very helpful.

swMenu
I too have read the other reviews and am puzzled. This is a great extension, works with Joomla 2.5, and responses to questions have been very prompt. Needed wrapping menu text, asked how to do it, was told new version handled it and voila.. , there it was! AND I am using the free version! Great work!
