CSVI Pro
CSVI Pro is a very flexible tool to import CSV Files into Joomla and especially Virtuemart. I use it to add products or IceCat information to my VM shop. And CSVI does an excellent shop. It has a template system included where I can exactly define, what I want to import or export. It is even able to recognize additional database tables, which I created myself. The support is excellent and very helpful.

CSVI Pro is the swiss army knife for any kind of CSV import and export for both Joomla and Virtuemart.

AJAX Dock Cart for VirtueMart
Works like a charm and it lifts up VM shopping experience to WEB 2. The support is excellent and very fast.
Pros:
Easy install
Easy configuration
Works out of the box

Cons:
Slows down server performance by using Dojo and not Joomla native Mootools library.
Tricky to configure together with JCH Optimize or other optimizing plugins.

If using JCH Optimize or other optimizers it is better to exclude that module or at least all Dojo Javascript files, else it may refuse to work.

Universal AJAX Live Search
It slows down the site performance, because it uses a lot of external javascripts (dojo) and not native mootools. Did install it with the Virtuemart Plugin ( there are about 20 000 VM products) and it takes quite a while until those products are found. The native Virtuemart Search Module (not the Joomla search with VM plugin as used by Joomla native search functions or with universal ajax search) is about 10 times faster. It is maybe nice for Joomla search purposes but not together with Virtuemart. It even does not work together with a Virtuemart SEF plugin. Clicking on the search results it uses non sef links.

VirtueMart
I use virtuemart with a lot of categories and about 18 000 products in the catalogue. So far it has a lot of features and works without bigger problems. But it does not conform to the w3c coding rules.
