software that helps design reports in php and can produce pdf

Experts,
  I have a pretty big project we're working on.  We're using php / MySQL.  There are many reports that we need to write.  I could write them manually and then write code to create pdfs for them, but there must be a software package out there that will help with the process?!?  And I don't mind paying for it-  
  Over the past couple days we have checked out some packages out there but have been very disappointed:
- scriptcase (terrible tech support and poor quality documentation and code)
- codecharge (can't produce pdf's easily and can't contact them)
- stimulsoft (can't contact them and the php package is just beta)
- php for visual studio by jcx (no report writing capabilities)
  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks in advance

There is no specific software to do. You have to like this open source plugins / classes to generate pdf's using PHP.
