Hi Douglas,
 
I tried both DevExpress, Infragistics and Telerik controls to evaluate some controls in one of my project. The project was in Silverlight, so definitely I tried the Silverlight controls for both of them. Among them I really liked the vast controls provided by Telerik. Their easy to customization steps and the support caught my eyes which I really appreciate.
 
Infragistics is also a good component library but if you compare between them, you can easily score Telerik up. If your company is developing projects in major Microsoft Technologies like WinForm, WPF, ASP.NET, Silverlight, Windows Phone etc. you can go with the Telerik Ultimate license which will be cheap for you if you compare to individual product. You will also get quick and good response from the Telerik forum (from my experience) if you need any help as the forum is really very active. Not only this, there are many other products which again come with the same license. If you need a specific product too, you can go for it.
 
I would highly recommend "Telerik" but that again depends on your actual requirement. Check out which product (Technology) you want to use and whether those libraries has those controls that you need in your project. You have to do some POC before selecting your library. I already did for one of my project and hence I have the experience with both of them. I did complete analysis for few months and then reported my higher management to use the Telerik controls only for our entire project. Hence my recommendation will still be there with Telerik.
 
Last but not least, I am not recommending it as I am associated with them as Telerik MVP & Insider but from my previous experience. I am not a Telerik employee or has any direct association with any of those companies. This is my personal experience and faith on their controls.
 
Let me know, if you have any queries.
