which UI component set would you recommend?

Hello Flash Experts!

I'm looking for a new set of UI components for a Flash application to make it at lesat 30-50% faster. I'm considering using the Ghostwire.com component set #1 to replace the basic UI controls that come with Flash MX. Does anyone have experience using these components? Are there any drawbacks? Will they really make my application faster? I'm referring to actual execution time, not .swf loading time.

Also, if I used Flash 2004 components instead, what kind of performance improvement might I expect? What are some drawbacks to using the Flash 2004 components? This application is going to be used internally within my company's intranet, so making it available to the general public, which generally still has the Flash 6 player or earlier, is not an issue. Every computer in my company has Flash 7 at this point.

Thanks,
Darren

g8z,

In my opinion, the Macromedia Flash MX 2004 components are by far the best!!!
My main reason for thinking this is because Macromedia have spent years developing flash and figuring out the most effective way to create objects such as the UI components. Any company/website that claims to have the fastest flash components would be known world wide however I have never heard of ghostwire.com
At the following website you will find a 10 minute presentation about the UI components, what they can do and how to use them most effectivley.

I'm hoping to find someone who has used the Ghostwire components, or who can suggest some alternative set of components that can be used. There *must* be some out there.
