I would like to add some input from my extensive experience with Stuf, formally known as Shadow. My experience with Stuf has been pleasurable. They are constantly improving the application, they listen to feedback and implement suggestions VERY quickly. Here is an example (from my email correspondence):

I have been using Stuf for quite some time, and lately, I have noticed a REALLY long delay in pasting some things ...

Unfortunately, this is a known problem, we're aware of what causes it, but not how to fix it just yet. The problem revolves around AppleScript, which Stuf uses to tell an application to "paste", for some reason the AppleScript engine is taking a while to "warm up" in each application, so your first paste will be slow, but consequent pastes should be perfectly fast. ...

Okay, thank you for the prompt response. By the way, I do have a suggestion, or maybe I just missed something in the preferences. I would love a way to select the default pasting to be in plain text instead of formatted text. Being able to turn this off or on would be great. Thanks again.

Hmm, I'd probably like that too! Should be easy enough to implement, will see about doing that.

Just so you know, the option to default to pasting plain text is now implemented and will be in a release this week..
Now that is customer service .. AWESOME!
Pros: Stuf has a great interface, very Mac-like and progressive, simple non-intrusive menubar icon, keyboard shortcut option, options for default plain text pasting (my favorite option) and networked sharing capability for multiple clipboards (very functional). Of course, the great customer service. Stability is good for me as I have only had a couple of problems with Stuf during my appr. year of use.
Cons: Stuf is slow on first pasting, and it has been mentioned that it does not handle 200+ remembered items (but who needs 250 copied items remembered, to be honest, not me).
