More than anything, it's important to rate an extension on the companies ability and willingness to help you work though the inevitable issue that will arise. This is such a company.
They worked very hard to make their product work with my site and even with the addition of custom work, they came through. This is a great extension and I'm happy to leave a good review for it. You can see it working at BizAds.us!
I use Techjoomla extensions for years in several projects. They work like a charm and if you are running into any problems you will experience superior support.
Current project with broadcast implemented: molocoo(dot)com - our users love it :-)
This works exactly as advertised, setup is strait forward and fairly simple, your reading this then you can probably do it.
Had a support request on another com and they were extremely helpful and friendly even though the problem turned out to be within my servers config.
