Great for simple stuff, but for anything complex...

Fabrik has great functionality - in theory you can do great stuff with it. But for complex needs, hit a bug & you may be stuffed.
Ease of use
Huge no. of options. For simple stuff, then you only need basic knowledge of SQL, PHP and Javascript. Otherwise...
Unless you pay, developer support very variable. Support from other expert users declining because they get no recognition for their efforts
Wiki is ok but dated. Training videos are no more. May need to experiment a lot to get things to work.
Value for money
I used this to: No longer using - projects abandoned as developer will not merge fixes or enhancements created by users, and only fix bugs they fancy fixing. Users not paying for support need to rely on community experts, but community experts needs are ignored so their support is declining.
