Filter and Search for K2
This product works beautifully and I'm blown away by the support provided by Andrey. I had a couple of questions and each time he responded to me within a matter of hours, always providing exactly what I needed.

One thing that might help others in setting it up that wasn't intuitively obvious: for each Filter type that you want to display, you have to choose a corresponding option in the Select Extra field box. For example, my first Filter type is "Category multiple select." In the Select Extra field box, I chose "Not extra field 1" because there is no extra field associated with Category. Once I figured that out, my filters displayed correctly on the front end.

Core Design Access Text
On the surface, this plugin works as described and was easy to implement. But there's a hidden issue. When you create restricted user-only content on your site with this plugin, that content is available to non-logged-in users through the Search function. In other words, if someone who is not logged in does a search, the restricted content will appear in the search results. The developer explains in the forums that it's because Joomla search doesn't read the plugins in the content. I feel like this is an important piece of information that should be made clear to anyone considering using the plugin. In my case, I've already used it in many places on my Joomla 2.5 site and didn't discover this issue until after the fact. Now I have to find another way to manager all the member only content.

If you don't care about the search results issue, this is a great plugin. But if you do, be forewarned.

JEvents
Just had to take a minute out of a busy day to remark on the amazing support offered by Geraint. I'm working on my first JEvents install and it's for a large client with very specific wants & needs. I've been firing off the support tickets, and each time without fail I have received a response within less than one day. It has definitely exceeded my expectations. I'm also thrilled with the component itself, which offers more options and flexibility than other Joomla event management tools I've used.

JUX Accordion Menu
Really impressive customer service. I sent a question through their online support form this afternoon and within a couple hours I had heard back from them and my issue was resolved. There were several back & forth emails in the process, each one answered very promptly. Far exceeded my expectations, even for a commercial extension.
