K2
I've built about 10 sites with K2 now. starting with some of the first releases of this project. Here are a couple of my observations.

*Much better control and more features compared to joomla core. Lot's of params. Good features for param templating too.

* so many param options that I wish there was a click all off at once. I'm spending too much time clicking things off every time I set up a new category!!!

*good compatibility with core, wanting more 3Party modules but faithful they will appear
* frequent and continuous improvement, bug fixes, new features. Patiently waiting for the next round!

* good community support on forums, considering the early stage of this broad product I'm happy to teach myself and take the time to learn it.

Hoping that my local competitors don't find out about it in the near future though!!

Regarding this:
"so many param options that I wish there was a click all off at once. I'm spending too much time clicking things off every time I set up a new category!!!"

In K2, you only need to setup the "parent" category with a layout (params) set and then all children categories can inherit the parent's set if you select it in the related "inherit params..." option a little below the title. This way, you create param sets for your parent categories and then all children categories can be created simply by adding title, description (optional) and choosing the "inherit" option. Very fast category structure setups!
