Attachments
This is THE extension I needed. It works as advertised and I haven't had any problems.

Pros:
-Installation was a breeze.
-Out of the box design is great. I haven't had to make any changes CSS or otherwise to make it look great! I can think of few extensions where this is true.

Cons:
-Nothing major really, just a few suggestions.

A few suggested Changes:
-I like the previous suggestions of inline attachments and including attachments in RSS feeds.
-I think the "Hide Attachments For" parameter might be better served by two parameters. A drop down for frontpage and article's only and a text box for the category/section limits.
-A very small complaint: I wish that the filetype icon and document name were in the same link. I have an underline under all links that disappears when hovered over. Hence, I wanted the icon and text to be in a single link. It was easy to do by making slight changes to lines 677 and 678 in helper.php, but I'd think this would be a good change to incorporate in the next version.

But again, bravo. Great extension!
Owner's reply

Thanks for the encouraging feedback. The suggestion about adding separate options for 'Hide Attachments For' settings 'frontpage' and 'articles only' is a good one that I'll add to my list of things to do. I'll also take another look at the point you made that the icon and filename are not in the same link.
One of my next goals is to implement the inline attachments option.

Rapid1Pixelout
This extension is exactly what I needed, but a few problems I've noticed:
1) The span class used to surround the player in 1pixeloutplayer.php is "1pixelout." However, a css class cannot start with a number. For those of us who want to style that span (for instance display: block; border: #XXXXXX; etc;), the class must start with a letter, not a number.
2) There is no way to style the volume control color.
3) There is no way to change the color of the slider.
