My boss is asking me to spend some money and I was wondering what extensions and power-packs are fantastic for Visual Studio 2010.

I already picked Telerik, but there are tons of other expansions, so if you know of some cool ones please list them.

We're a VB.Net shop if that matters...

it depends on what kind of controls you want and what you want to achieve.

personally, I use Telerik but cannot live without Aspsose too for documents processing.
