Functionality
Works
Ease of use
No hassle, install in seconds, edit profile info and done
Functionality
More features that most people would use in a lifetime. Integrates seamlessly with Gravatar and Joomla profile (makes it easy to maintain)
Ease of use
Better to use latest method to exclude categories but the current method is acceptable. "Other articles by author" feature is broken.
Documentation
Excellent
I used this to: Adding biographies and images about authors who have contributed material to a magazine-style website. Used in my own blogging, too. Saved me the effort of writing my own plugin because this does what I want and it *probably* does it better.

Good Extension
