Grammar checker - What is the best SAAS (online) grammar checker?

I've been testing Ginger in free mode for a while and they keep bugging me to upgrade (~$59 per year), but I am wonder about alternatives. Rather, I am wonder what you folks consider as the best on-line grammar checker, and why?

I have used Grammarly in the past but I recall that it often missed obvious errors and sometimes made erroneous suggestions. But that was about three years ago. I also know that there are a few other grammar checkers available.

Two Two that I have used are:
- Ginger https://www.gingersoftware.com
- https://www.grammarly.com

Criteria for answering
- Please don't suggest that there is no substitute for understanding English grammar. I know this. But these tools are still great for finding errors when one makes the occasional mistake.
- Please don't suggest the free tools in Microsoft Office. I don't have access to Office.
- I am primarily editing in Google mail and the Google Apps.
- I am only concerned about English grammar checking.

I'll look forward to your comments and suggestions. :)

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I currently use Grammarly and I have find it mostly accurate. I can always ignore the suggestions based on my work. I write novels and certain aspects do not fit into correct grammar, such as people speaking. The suggestions help highlight the fact the grammar may not be optimal, but then I can make an informed decision. Often I don't change based on the suggestion, but re-word the sentence to state my meaning in a different way. This often results it a better sentence than the original and the suggestion.
Hope that helps.
