Chose Progress Telerik
[Progress Telerik UI] had a specific set of controls that were suited directly to our application space. Telerik also provided a Xamarin solution for very similar pricing, which should allow us to speed up our app development.
Chose Progress Telerik
Progress Telerik UI ultimately had the smoothest/lowest learning curve for developers and it's an established product that incoming team members likely have some experience with.

When you want to display spreadsheet based reports, it's really convenient as it has everything out of the box.
If you have very basic components like combo boxes or lists, there is hardly a point in using such a large component set.
In the end, it's a matter of finding a good balance between functionality and complexity.

We have used the Telerik UI controls for our Admin user experience. We found that this lead to consistent user experience, with feature rich functions already provided. Effectively this meant that hour for hour, using the Telerik UI improved productivity in creating screens with more functions than using the default controls in ASP.NET. At this point most of our focus with the Telerik controls is User Interface oriented.

  • I'd like to see the radwebcam include the ability to read/decode barcodes or QR codes and possibly raise a barcode read event.
  • The visual studio add-in takes a while to load, so I constantly get the slow add-in warning from visual studio 2022
  • some of the winform controls seem to have poor performance such as carousel.

Telerik UI support is what you are paying for. If something does not work you ask them for an example of how to solve your use case. The SEO on their sites is awesome and so well bedded into Google. The videos are good, [they're] not used much but their examples and DoJo examples make all the difference.
