Impressive

I've been working with the trial beta for no more than 1-2 weeks, and still managed to setup an entire issue management system based on it for our operations department. The customization capabilities seem to be really unlimited, plus I was able to setup master detail views based on external data (some financial info is kept to systems outside MOSS) within minutes.

Boosts up sharepoint app development; definetely worth the price

Product Reviews

Pros
-Controls like hierarchical treeviews, lookup pickers with search, on the fly datagrids, advanced calculated formulas based on existing controls, images, progress bars etc
-FAST (goodbye irritating post backs)
-WYSIWYG printing of the forms
-External data embedment
-Super: multiple forms based on custom conditions
Cons
haven't found any :) will keep digging though.
perhaps one "drawback" (if you can call it that) is that it is "bound" to sharepoint. I would love to have it also as an independent product for building standalone silverlight forms outside sharepoint.
