Only useful for small number of Temando customers
The free extension is very limited.
And the paid extension doesn't offer value for money because you can do all the extra things (eg. multiple warehouses, nearly any imaginable shipping rules, insurance rules, carbon offset rules, surcharges) for free by using an extentsion such as Owebia (http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/owebia-shipping-2.html).
The problem with the temando free extension is that it doesn't let you ship normal magento orders with it. It only allows you to ship orders if the customer selects a "Temando" shipping option. And the "Temando" shipping option is extremely limited (ie. you can't even have two flat rate shipping options for Standard & Express). And their customer facing "Temando" shipping option displays the "Temando" name to the customer in the checkout, confusing the customer as most customers haven't heard of Temando.
If the extension would allow normal magento orders to be shipped using Temando, then I would send more orders by temando. But now for orders where the price would be similar with Australia Post, I will continue using Australia Post to avoid having to re-enter data into the temando website.

Time saver for shipping orders with TNT and fastway
I have just upgraded to 1.8 and have found the new temando shipping extension helpful. Key benefits to me include the address correction, it can pick up the right suburb post code and state combinations. Also super handy when it comes to printing out the shipping labels with just a few clicks.
