Here some reviews about ParadoxPDF extension:

"We're working in a project where we need to generate pdfs based of some templates. It was a nightmare to use this working with the php libraries i know about. With this extension we only need to create a template just the way i'm doing with the rest of the site!. using it with your own extensions is extremely easy.
Great work." Carlos
