Overall Satisfaction with Progress Telerik UI

Progress Telerik UI is becoming a company standard to create UI, with more than 250 software products that are slowly transitioning to Progress Telerik UI controls and/or creating new forms from scratch.
  • Themes: the uptime for the dark theme was very quick
  • Lots of custom controls
  • Replacing native .Net controls with Progress Telerik UI is very easy since the API is the same
  • Demo app is a good discovery place
  • Little API nuisances where you have to go deep down an element or implement a callback to get something that could just be a property
  • Visual Studio extension is buggy
  • Some of our users reported bad text rendering on their machines
  • Although ribbon implementation is a little choppy, once you figure it out, it works well; it gave our old apps a new, modern look
  • Themes
  • Need tools to replace .Net controls with Progress Telerik UI controls--it's a lot of grunt work
We are using DevExpress for reporting, which has a way better reporting and report template creation mechanism.
In general the support is very responsive and we get solutions.
Except for reporting, I find Progress Telerik UI components very useful. We would recommend these controls if you are looking to create apps with ribbons or are looking for themes--especially dark themes--that are becoming a user requirement now.
I really don't have any bad things to say about Progress Telerik UI; it just works
