Need Advice for FTP in .NET 4.0: Xceed for FTP or FTPWebRequest

I support a vb.net 1.1 class that makes FTP calls use Xceed for FTP (version 3.2.6563.0).

I will be upgrading that same class to .NET 4.0.

I know a few of my options for ftp is to:
1.  Use the .NET 4.0 version of Xceed for FTP
2.  Use a different 3rd party tool
3.  Use System.Net.FTPWebRequest

I am looking for advice to see how easy and reliable option 3 is.  I have read that connectivity can be problematic for multiple requests.  Can anyone lend some words of advice on this?
Thank you!

3rd party components are mostly more powerful than the built in controls. But the best way I think is to test it yourself based on your needs.
