Joom Donation
I have used Joom Donation on a number of sites and it works flawlesly. Where there has been minor issues recently such as the length of the donate field, Tuan has solved the issue within a day. I could have used a form component to build a donation form but it would not give me the other nice features such as the module showing who has donated and the thermometer for Campaigns such as the Church roof fund etc. I have also added Gift Aid fields in the component so that tax in the UK can be reclaimed when anyone donates. I have no hesitation in recommending this component. :)

Testimonial Fader
Not sure the name of Testimonial Fader does it justice ! It has sparkled up many of my sites. It was easy to install and setup. If there were any issues they were down to me forgetting that we now have a drag and drop option in Joomla 3.0 for items, so the reordering of submitted testimonials is a doddle.
The module for submitting testimonials is also very neat and simple including the captcha. All testimonials are vetted before publication and an emails sent to whoever is designated in the config. Finding the right speed for the display of the testimonials took a little time, but nothing major.
The support is excellent. I submitted a ticket and almost immediately it was responded to and resolved. A neat little component for testimonials which I can highly recommend.

Event Booking
I was looking for a component to enable me to allow users to register either individually or as a Team for a mountain marathon. Events Booking was the excellent solution to this project. Not only does it allow the user to register and pay for the event but it also links their registration to their Community Builder or Jom Social Profile. How cool is that ! Tuan has been very attentive in providing quick solutions and accepting suggestions for improvements/development of the component, which is what the Joomla community is all about. For the £18 donation I made towards this component, it was well worth the money. I have no hesitaton in recommending this component fo anyone wanting to set up an Events Registration web site. :)

One of the reasons why I was reluctant to move to Joomla 1.5 was because it did not support FacileForms. As soon as BreezingForms (BF) became available for Joomla 1.5 I had no hesitation in migrating. I had no hesitation in making a small contribution for a component which is indispensable for any serious Joomla web site. BF is a Breeze to use. I have created about 5 forms for my web site and it was very easy and quick. One of the forms lets patients order their repeat medication and the great thing about BF is offering the user the option to receive a copy of the submitted form. How good is that ! The built-in Capatcha is a Breeze and works ! So too does the Calendar. Excellent. I have not had use for the PayPal option so cannot comment. I had some initial teething problems with migrating from an earlier version of BF and Markus Bopp the component creator was excellent in coming to my assistance. This is a must have component. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Akeeba Backup
Like other postings I was looking for a backup component that would backup data and site files all in one go. Unfortunately, every time I tried to run a backup of this component it just hung! If it is because I am using 1.0.12 Joomla, please can this component be updated as soon as possible. A complete backup solution like this component, would be perfect.
