Simplify your web design and data layout

2021-08-27

Using Essential Studio to redevelop our win32 system application to a web based solution

Pros

Coming from a win32 background to developing web pages, Essential Studio made laying out the data easier than having to write all the css and scripts, therefore cutting development time massively.

Cons

Have not used the product long enough to experience any cons other than sometimes the controls do not display, indicating a problem within the page which is not self evident or reported.

A complete suite with a lot of Components

2021-04-16

My overall experience with Essential Studio is really perfect because I have used a lot of .NET libraries and UI Controls for my web projects.

Pros

If you want an incredible collection of UI components for the development needs of your desktop, web, and mobile application then Essential Studio is really best for you.

Cons

All features and options are really outstanding without any negative points. I never found any issue during the use of any components, for me, it's perfect without any kind of cons.

Good product, needs better documentation

2021-07-19

Work directly with the supplied controls and not using the UI for Essential Studio.

Pros

Once past the licensing issues, it is easy to use within an application for normal, simple features and feature set combinations.

Cons

Working directly with support/development programmers from Syncfusion, found that there were several issues with timing within the control code and how to access the control API that were not documented.

Syncfusion Essential Studio - A world class set of tools

2021-02-18

Until now, I see that Syncfusion controls are enough for all my development needs.

Pros

Although I have not used them, there are also Reporting, Data Science and Business Intelligence support, which I plan to test shortly.

Cons

Documentation can be improved with more examples. However, this is not critical.

Good - able to develop a rather complex web application with little prior web development.

Pros

Ease to install, good customer support.

Blazor tools are excellent

2021-04-07

I work on a very small team as the lone developer, Essential Studio for Blazor has cut down a lot of development time with tools such as the DataGrid and FileUpload control which would otherwise add many hours of development to replicate.

Pros

Overall the suite of tools in Essential Studio for Blazor are excellent and really fill a lot of design voids I have as full stack developer.

Cons

Overall very little. There is a bit of a learning curve when starting fresh but nothing more then what can be expected from a toolset like this that can be leveraged in several different ways.

Complete package

2020-05-12

We like the product, it's easy-to-use, has a logical architecture, and fairly good documentation.

Pros

We use components for web and Windows UI development development, an server-sided document processing features for Word, Excel and PDFs.

Cons

What we sometimes miss is the configuration depth, but the excellent support compensates this by adding what we need.

Great components outstanding support

2020-02-15

I'm using both the WPF components and the Web components, both on ASP.Net MVC and .Net Core, The use of these components reduces dramatically the development time and they have a great support for tasks as exporting to excel, word, html, and importing from external source, they have great PDF management and Visualization components and Great components to manage Word and Excel documents.

Pros

The good documentation, many samples, easy to apply on our software, but most of all the outstanding support from the company that supplies a sample to solve a problem or any How To question.

Cons

the only thing I don't like much is that upgrading the desktop projects when I upgrade the libraries is a time consuming task. But I don't think there is a way to avoid this.

Pros

SyncFusion facilitates App development for different systems

To making the App look be the same / to have the same behave, in different environments has still been the biggest difficulty and the most time consuming point.

Excellent product - would recommend

2020-05-21

Overall a very good experience and I would consider using this product in future projects without question.

Pros

It fit the bill almost perfectly with the development project we had started.

Cons

Although the documentation was very much complete with good examples, we were lacking in some of the architecture connections to Xamarin data sources and this took some time to figure out.

The best UI Components Library for all Platforms out there

2020-05-05

Fits perfectly for our needs and gives us almost every ui component we need in our apps.

Pros

Broad selection of UI components for all our development platforms (UWP, Xamarin, Blazor).

Cons

Some components or features are only available on specific platforms. It would be great to have the same components and a similar way to use them for all platforms. Work in progress and some bugs still have to be ironed out especially for Blazor.
