Pros
They are all easy to use and well documented with good examples. Their developer support is fast and awesome.
I find it's API very accessible and self-explained and in the fly I did get attached to it, nice UI and very good performance.
I love the community license for small developers like myself. I have only used customer support a few times, but each time the response has been outstanding.
Cons
It seems lack of unit tests to their products. For example, some correct Excel equations could be messed up for some reasons which may scare users.
It makes me very hesitant to upgrade to the latest version for fear that something which used to work now doesn't (unit testing UI components is very hard).
The documentation is very bad. Include only very basic and unreal samples.

The maelstrom of software development platforms

Reviewed 4 years ago

The experience with Essential Studio has been gratifying, not only for the functionality of its components or the improvements they offer in each release, but also for the technical support giving 100% follow-up to each problem reported.

Pros

Many updates cause malfunctions in components from previous versions, Syncfusion Essential Studio is no exception, however its technical support is highly committed to continuous product improvement, creating successful customer support experiences. Generating software in Essential Studio manages to improve the processes of any organization, making it easy and intuitive.

Cons

The examples in the documentation are not enough. Should include more technical examples of component implementation

A good product

Reviewed 3 months ago

Syncfusion team support me good enough and I had an occasion to use their product fully , with well documents. Their tools are powerful for me to work on Visual Studio, run well with Nuget, remind me every time new version release. Very professional and quality products, cross many technologies and platforms. Highly recommend.

Pros

The code was written in the most elegant way. Reading its source is easy to understand.

Cons

I can not search the related topic correctly with Guide center. But the ticket works, and I got the right support

Great product

Reviewed 5 months ago

Brilliant support

Pros

Export to excel and pdf from datagrid and datagrid and sorting

Cons

Can't think of anything but hoping they will do adding unbound data to datagrid as promised soon and have full functionality to net 8.0 when visual studio for Windows has that in a stable version
