Overall Satisfaction with Progress Telerik UI

Telerik UI is used in some of the web applications in my organization.
Mostly we use Kendo controls to display data on UI.
The controls save us tons of time or would take to build equivalent user experience from scratch. All of these have worked well and support has been fast and generally helpful.
  • Good documentation of all controls.
  • Controls are very easy to use.
  • Online examples are well thought out and coded.
  • Their support is generally quick to response. And is always thorough.
  • More control over outlines/shapes.
  • When Telerik introduced Kendo UI for Angular it was very slow to implement every component.
  • Could be better in making some of the features responsive in small screens.
  • Some examples are harder to understand because they work on their sample services.
Super easy to use and integrate into Visual Studio. The MVC helpers greatly simplify development. The controls are easy to implement and the online examples are excellent.
Support is very responsive and normally replies within 24 hours. Very detailed and helpful replies.
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.
However, code samples exist for basic but not the most intricate scenarios.
The Kendo UI controls for jQuery helped me al lot, this was with the ASP.NET controls for jQuery.
The upside of Progress Telerik UI for controls instead of another is the huge community. If you have an issue with one of the controls there is always an answer available in the community.
It's well suited for rapid development.
