Anyone use RadControls or Devexpress 3rd party controls?

Im thinking about purchasing the RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX, by Telerik.
Any advice, suggestions, or opinions? What has been your experience?

The same goes for Devexpress. I'm thinking of purchasing their
ASPxScheduler Stuite. Any experience with their products? Are they solid
and good performance?

We are using telerik's RadTreeView and it is just great. Have you tried
their control in trial period? That way you get to know it better.

I use Telerik's full RadControls AJAX suite (and previously the non-AJAX
ones).
I absolutely love them, and have regularly renewed my support contract.

The tools are top-notch, and the support is fast and helpful.
With the latest releases, they've really brought them in-line too with the
standard controls,
in terms of property naming and stuff. And the skin engine is easy to
understand and modify.

Very robust, and well worth the money paid. HTH

I absolutely LOVE the Telerik suite. The latest Q1 2008 release of the
ASP.Net Ajax suite is incredible. Overall, a very strong and robust full
suite.

The DevExpress ASPxScheduler has been around a bit longer than Telerik's
scheduler and may be a bit more mature. I haven't played with the
ASPxScheduler, but I have used a number of their other components and have
found them all to be very nice and easy to use.

I guess if I was only looking for a scheduler only, I would go with the
ASPxScheduler. If I wanted a full suite, the Telerik suite has an excellent
array of core controls. Telerik's support and samples tend to be second to
none in the industry and you can tell how involved they are with their
customers by the great activity level in their forums. I use both DevExpress
and Telerik suites together in a number of my projects and they play well
together and have a great array of features that complement eachother
nicely.

Hope this helps,

The Infragistics suite is also very good. Of course, there's a lot of
overlap on most of these suites but I find that I use a lot of these
different controls depending upon the exact requirements. For instance, if I
need a grid with tabbed hierarchical items I use the DevExpress GridView. If
I need a grid that's very much excel-like, I use the Infragistics Grid and
can also make use of their ExcelCalc library. If I need a really nicely
decorated grid I use the Telerik RadGrid.

The nice thing about the Infragistics WebSchedule is it does have backend
database features built in if I remember correctly (though I haven't used it
in a year or so). It's also fairly mature, having been in their offering for
at least a couple of years. That said it's definitely feature-packed and
has a great sample app that comes with it. I find Infragistics application
styling features to be very flexible, but usually a bit overkill and can
slow me down in setting them up. Still, the application styling provides a
great depth of functionality, but sometimes I choose a different control
such as a Telerik control because it's very easy to use one of the default
skins and their skins are built right into the dll control itself (no
external skin libraries required for them anymore). The downside of course,
Telerik RadSchedule doesn't have a backend that comes with it, you have to
supply that but otherwise all the suites have great support and great
features.

I am using telerik controls all the time and am very happy with them and
with their support.

With this, I would need a very strong motivation for starting looking at
other products. Although telerik controls are easy to use, they do require
certain learning curve and some hours will be necessary wasted due to
misunderstandin g concepts and documentation.U nless there is a very strong
reason for that, I would not like having to pass through all this again with
some other products. It you are missing a feature, it may be safer and
faster to code it yourself than to switch to another grid.
