ebizmarts - MageMonkey - Official MailChimp and Mandrill Extension
When attempting to install this extension on Magento CE 1.8.1 through MagentoConnect 2.0. I would get an error:
CONNECT ERROR: Failed to open file /home/ ... /downloader/.cache/community/Ebizmarts_MageMonkey-1.1.20/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/ebizmarts/autoresponder/system/config/review/fieldset/
...seemed to be that the filenames were getting chopped off and directories were incomplete when Magento Installer tried to unpack the downloaded .tgz file. I knew this because I looked at the unpacked files and many of them had incomplete filenames. For example, helper.phtml would only be written as helper.ph
Possibly the full path name of the file was longer than the text string allocated to contain filenames.. and it would get chopped.
JUST TO BE NICE:
I used this extension on a different Magento system and it worked fantastic. But this bad review will do more good than harm because it will prompt someone at either Magento or MailChimp to get out there and fix this install problem. Or at least come up with an answer to why it is happening for multiple people.
I gave my entire Magento directory recursive 777 permissions to resolve the issue with no results.
I also manually upacked the .tgz file inside the .../downloader/.cache/community/... directory so the correct files were available... and the files were there but this still didn't help.
I ended up having to manually copy the .tgz file's directory contents into the Magento directories. After doing that, it was clear sailing and it worked as soon as I went to my Magento Admin. It wasn't very hard at all once I figured out what to do... but it did take a lot of extra time. The issue is that I shouldn't have to do that on an extension that is supposed to go in cleanly when using the installer.

Must-have Magento Extension
We wanted to start with 3 different newsletters for our customers and found the excellent (and free!*) MailChimp Newsletter service from Ebizmarts.
The integration was really easy with this extension (Magemonkey 1.20), but you should spend some time to get used to the MailChimp way and build the templates on mailchimp.com that fits you needs. They send emails with a tiny branding stamp, but this is nothing you should worry about.
We've stumbled over something while styling the checkout, but the fast and reliable support forum at ebizmarts.com helped us out.
Great extension, a must-have for your Magento shop.
*the MailChimp service is free for lists with fewer than 2,000 subscribers across all lists in your account, you can send up to 12,000 emails per month. No credit card needed. Quite reasonable pricing if you need more than that.

Works well and great customer support
It works as it should and as described. I had a few issues but it was user error and their support team helped me find out what was wrong.

Fantastic product, with support second to none
I installed this product around 4 weeks ago to automate the sending of review emails to my customers, the setup itself was intuitive and the documentation provided was easy to follow, I had an issue with a timeout settng on my server, which Martin solved for me on the forum and via email.
Martin went beyond the realms of duty to try and solve the issue and I am now pleased to say that everything is working fantastically, I'd highly recommend this extension, thank you again.

Awesome extension, better support
Transactional emails and newsletter are so easy with this extension that everyone should use this extension.
I had some little problems when I tried to connect my smtp server with this extension, but, thank to their amazing support, I could solve every problem really fast.
If their paid extensions are as good as this extension, they are really worthy.

Good module, great support
The module is good, does what it says on the tin. Support is great, I had a little issue with transactional emails not being sent but support found the bug and fixed it.

excellent extension with sublime support
Who would be without this extension? It integrates seamlessly and Ebizmarts's support is out of this world. If I ever have any issues (which is rare) I get a response usually within 5 (yes, five) minutes! Action is competent, efficient, proactive and friendly.
Ignacio, Pablo, Martin and the team are great to work with. They promise a lot but deliver more than they promise: our lives would be so much easier if only a quarter of developers were this good. These guys really are top banana!
