ASP.NET Custom COntrol Opinions

Has anyone used the telerik ASP.NET controls collection?  The grid and navigation controls look very sexy.  The collection price of $800 seems to be a decent price for all that you get?  (but what do I know!?!)

How about recommended controls/components for the following:

-dynamically creating PDFs?
-sending email
-creating excel spreadsheets

-dynamically creating PDFs?

I'd expect many (most) reporting tools to handle that.  (E.g.ActiveReports.  Whicch might help with graphs too)

-sending email

System.Web.Mail.SmtpMail may be all you need.

-creating excel spreadsheets  or check out the Office 2003 XML schema.

It generates the ExcelML, but it black-boxes it very nicely.
