There were some showstoppers in earlier versions, but the developer has been active in the forums and addressed all my concerns.

I'm using this component along with EventList to send announcements about new events to users.

I have some issues with setup using Firefox 4, but with production browsers the component and plugin work fine.

There were some initial issues with the cron job but that is also working fine now (version 2.01).

If you use Eventlist, this is a great addition. You can also create a Joomla menu item for users to edit their subscription preferences, using the standard Joomla menu tools.

The component has many other plugins too - for Kunena Forum (latest posts etc), Phoca Gallery, Community Builder...

Now that 2.01 is out this is highly recommended.

I have very little time to troubleshoot. I need components that work out of the box, take little end user training and just work. This fits all my requirements. Awesome module if your needs are like mine. Sure it could be more customizable but as it is, this is great and made me look like a star to my client.

This component needs more reviews, IMO. Plain and simple, it does what it says. I've tried a few RSS-to-article components and this one really seems to work well. Many tabs worth of options. I had it running on a live site in less than 10 minutes doing what I wanted. I've been very frustrated till now finding a free RSS component. Now the only hard part is finding quality RSS feeds, and that's as it should be. All I can say is these guys "set the bar" for free components. Well done.
