jUpgradePRO
At first jupgradePro is Free. You just have to register on the site. maybe old version you had to pay for?

I've migrated about ten sites in the last two months from 1.5 to 2.5 or 3.1. Sometimes i had problems with PHP-Settings or write permissions, but at least i always was able to migrate after fixing this things.
With the latest version 3.1.0 Database and Restful Method works without any problem. Done one migration last week and one today without any issue. So my vote is thumbs up!

Cobalt
I'm am Mighty Resources User and i thought i'm not upgrading to Cobalt and going with another CCK. So i tried SEBLOD, ZOO and others, but i was not happy. Don't get me wrong, they all very good, but Cobalt seems to be the best in my eyes. There all have pro and cons. The most important things for me are flexibility, customization and fast learning.

So here a few details why i think so. The system is very easy to understand. Templates and Plugins have a very simple structure. I was able to write my own plugin in just one hour (it shows a thumbnail on a link).
You can do almost anything with Cobalt. I use it for a gallery, reviews, a list with icehockey stadiums (Googlemaps) and podcasts.

The only thing it lacks is a good import feature. So i can not import my Migthy Resources articles. But in there support forums they write that they are working on import feature.

Also, I have to say that the support is very responsive.
