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.

They support multiple documents (including PDF, Excel, Word, ...). You can do whatever you want as you get access to the document and play with it. visit
