Phoca Gallery
Phoca Gallery is an excellent component. I use it for several years now and I couldn't be more happier with it. I love it's plugin which makes it easy to input images in the articles - Phoca Gallery Button Plugin.

Component and it's plugins or modules are easy to install and configure. For component it took me few moments before I understood the configuration options, because it has so many options. However, once I figured it out, it was easy to work with the component.
Only thing I might suggest to developer would be, to make the Detail View Settings, Category View Settings, General Settings, Slideshow Settings,... spread in tabs, so there is less scrolling, but that is more personal preference than anything else.

Handling with images once they are uploaded via ftp, couldn't be more simple, same goes for setting titles. I like that it offers more layouts for detailed window - Slimbox, Highlisde Js, Shadowbox,... not only that, in general component offers so many features, also if you don't want to use them you can disable them. It offers more than I need, but if I ever change my mind I know I can use the rest later too.

The documentation is very detailed, it's easy to find support on forums too, and developer himself responds on support e-mails quickly too.

The whole package offers more than I need, I couldn't be happier with this component, it's modules and plugins. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to set up gallery on their Joomla website.

Phoca Guestbook
Phoca Guestbook is an excellent component. I use it for past 4 years, and it didn't fail it's purpose so far.

The component is easy to install. You can set colors easily in configuration options, without need of editing .css files. Same goes for turning on/off other parameters.

I use this component with Phoca Guestbook Latest Entries Module and both, the component and module meet and exceeded my expectations.

If I had question regarding the component I could easily find answer in the detailed Documentation or Phoca Forums. The developer himself replies really quick on support questions too.

I worked with Joomla 6+ years and this Guestbook is easily my favorite, I'd recommend it to anyone who is searching to use Guestbook on their / client's Joomla website.

I had doubts to use TopCloud module at first as there is no real demo/screenshots anywhere, or I haven't found it.
However, I've decided to test it out and wouldn't change it for any other module.

I use the extension for blog website which has hundreds of articles. The installation of module went smooth, no problems, easy to install and easy to use.

+ simple to install
+ easy to use

- I haven't found any flaws connected to functionality so far. Few HTML tidy warnings, but that is last thing some developers look at, all is fixable as long as you have some HTML and php knowledge ;P

Thanks to developer :)

I am running 2.0.12 version and I really love it. Tested few non-commercial forms by now, but I can say I prefer this one the most and will use it from now on. Big thanks to developer and keep up with the good work ;)

Captcha feature works perfectly, you can even change the color of it into whichever you want!
