FeedGator
We have used FeedGator in its previous incarnations on other websites and do were excited to use it again. It installed fine, imported most feeds right away without issue. There was a small error on one of the feeds but this was easily rectified.

The reason we won't give 5 stars is that we feel strongly that customer service should also matter. Altho this is a free component right now, we are effectively testing it for free and providing feedback that will help the developer. Our experience on the forum was met with untimeliness, rudeness (from another board member) and more complaining. We pay for many components but the attitude we got is that we wanted it all for free, would never pay for anything anyway and were in fact inept. Unacceptable.

Overall, we would recommend FeedGator as a good Joomla addition. Order it without a side of rude and it will enhance your site.

Akeeba Backup
I installed JoomlaPack 1.1.1. which did not work correctly, giving an error message from the start. However, the support forum moderator was very helpful, giving me a new file a "development snapshot release, functionally equivalent to 1.2a2". This installed perfectly and worked correctly on the first try. So far the component is a winner and the support team is one of the best I have come across so far.
