One of the biggest problems with the Magento community is that i'm always being asked by clients about "what X plugin could you recommend" and "what are your thoughts on Y plugin" Yet I have absolutely no idea.
Also, I can't actually review the extensions code or the extension without purchasing it, and I am unable to write my own extensions because most companies don't want to pay a developer to write one.
So, I would like to ask the community of people for their recommendations of good (paid or otherwise) extensions. I've seen 5 star rated extensions from vendors such as Magestore (who are one of the worst developers I have ever had the displeasure of fixing their rubbish).
Since this is a more technical Q&A, how can these types of questions be structured or are they totally forbidden (since it's arguably opinion based)?
