Search Out
Had a problem with plugin at first but developer was very quick to fix the issue. Works perfect now.

Simple but effective functionality that no other search module out there currently offers. Great space saver. Very useful software.

Smart Slider 2
With Joomla extentions, you never know what kind of support you are going to get when you buy a product from someone. I've had horrible experiences and great experiences. Nextendweb, fortunately has amazing support!

There were a few tweaks I needed to it to make this slider work for my needs. Oftentimes when you request new features to a software company, they just say they will put it on their todo list, which means it won't get done for a while. Thanks to Daniel there, he went ahead and added the features I needed to the software the next day.

SP Upgrade
The developer is at different time zone than America but everytime I wrote, he answered back with explanations and even customized the upgrade script to fit my specific need. Upgrade program itself works great. Saves ALOT of time.

AT Social Sharing Pro
I'm not sure what lightweight means but this adds at least 300kb-400kb to your page! AddTHIS only added 100kb. Would avoid if you care about the loading of your pages.

SP Staging
Can't believe I finally found what I had been looking for. An easy way to update multiple sites with MY files instead of using built in Joomla updater, which many extentions don't support anyway. A HUGE timesaver when you have 50 sites.

Fancy Bookmarks with Google +1 Button
I am using the Joomla 1.5 plugin version

Pros:
1. Very nice looking buttons. Looks nicer than anything out there.
2. 4 Different styles to choose from
3. Exclusion of categories helps a lot
4. Support will write back often the same day

Cons:
1. Button counts do not actually work. The same person can hit the tweet button 100 times and it will show the amount of tweets as 100. Same with Facebook. They say this is a problem with shareAPI and will not be fixed until ShareAPI feels like it. ALL plugins using this shareapi have this bug.

2. Clicking on most buttons do not bring up a convenient popup. Instead they open up a whole new page. They say this is a problem with shareAPI too. ALL plugins using this shareapi have this bug.

3. Just moving your mouse over the email button will auto popup a popup box that you have to click on a button to close. Really annoying. They say this is a problem with shareAPI too. ALL plugins using this shareapi have this bug.

3. If you want to upgrade to the newest version of fancy bookmarks, there is no convenient way to do so. You have to uninstall your old version, reinstall new one, and set up all your settings all over again from scratch. I don't know many components, modules, or plugins that still work this way but the programmers refuse to change this.

Ultimate Feed Display
So many different options give me the ability to show a feed however I want. Nowhere else could I find this. It's great for showing a youtube video library from an RSS feed but didn't have lightbox support for vimeo. I wrote to the developer and within that same day, he provided the updated program with the vimeo compatibility. Couldn't ask for better support!

Top Panel Slider
I had trouble finding a good panel slider that housed modules. There are only 1 or 2 out there, period. So I was pleasantly surprised when I tested out this top panel slider. I decided to purchase and was glad I did. It's a beautiful slider and works right of the box.

I, however, wanted it to show at the bottom and not the top of the browser. I wrote to the guy who made it and the next day, he sent me the edited file. Worked perfectly! Could not be happier!

EasyBlog
Just bought Easyblog and at first it didn't work how I wanted it or thought it should work. I wrote to support, assuming that they would say "maybe in future versions." I was blown away that support actually sent back script modifications and did it all for me. Everything I asked for to customize it to my needs, they did. They weren't huge things but enough to where if they weren't made, I couldn't use it. Everything works great now, so I just wanted to share my positive experience with them as a company.
Owner's reply

Joom Donation
Didn't work at first with the template I had, but support got back to me same day and fixed my template to work with the program. Great organized interface and works as promised.
