R Antispam
The Short review; "Works as advertised"
The Long; I'd happily give this package 6 or more stars if I could... I was a bit skeptical when I first installed this, thinking it may cause me even more work than I already have. But I was wrong. Worked Great right out of the box. It has caught hundreds of spam messages on my Kunena Forum with only 1 false positive (that I have seen), and that is pretty good by me.
Great work... Try it out!

Akeeba Backup
I started using JoomlaPack (Akeeba's predecessor) a few years ago... and I have always been happy with the job it did. However, now I have an even greater admiration for the Akeeba Backup package. Where do I start? How about this... Akeeba puts a smile on my face each time I install it on one of my sites, then again each time I use it to generate a Copy or restore a backup! There is nothing I could say negativity about this package... Pros: a Configuration Wizard that works beautifully, the profile switcher... all this is great, but then there are the Extras! Desktop tools, Kickstart, SiteDiff, I could go on and on... 5 Stars, Thanks Nicholas.

Phoca Download
I have been a Fan of the Phoca line for some time now. I recently needed a Download Component and tried out a couple of the top rated ones for J1.5 before deciding on Phoca Download.
The component installed without a hitch. Setup and config was a breeze even without referring to the great Documentation. The included styles are a good start, and it took very little time for me to make the changes necessary to get it to look the way I wanted...
