Import for K2
I needed a product to automatically update a Joomla website from a database. K2 was even a better option than plain Joomla, because of extended category flexibility.

Import for K2 is still at an early stage of development, but is already working well.

Pros:
It allowed me to import and/or update tons of data into K2 in a snap. It links articles to any category, wherever this one is located in the hierarchy.

Cons:
Import for K2 still lacks of an "import mask", where a user could save his configurations once for all. Same work has to be done over and over, and can lead to mistakes.

Development team:
Communication with Artur (the developer) is great. He's willing to develop his product, helping and listening.
The price he's asking is ridiculous, and he's open to collaboration.

Overall:
Having reviewed the market, Import for K2 is the only product enabling to import csv (Excel exports) tables into K2 and linking them to K2 categories.

I hope to find enough time to keep participating to its development through further testing.

Thanks to Artur for his contribution.
