Absolutely Awful - Sente seems much more stable; it doesn't have Cite While you Write (CWYW), but then again EndNote's CWYW crashes virtually every time anyway.
Having previously used EndNote fairly reliably on a PC, I bought it for Mac before the 'X versions'. That version rarely worked, but given the hype about the newest refined X2 version and CWYW fixes, I paid again for the latest update (another £75 or so!). It is every bit as buggy, and has virtually no innovation over previous versions. In contrast, I am now looking at Sente, which lacks the much hyped integration with Pages, but will produce bibliographies for Pages outwith the application itself after inserting easil formatted citations. Sente also features a much more intuitive interface, web search facilities that actually work, and a great system for linking downloaded PDF files to the citation database. It can be a little slow opening my 50k database, but not intolerably. Unlike EndNote, it also has a trial.

One of very few (especially paid) pieces of software with which I have no grumbles.
It easily manages and improves the security of my passwords, and allows me to easily syncronise them across all my machines. I only wish Apple would open Safari on the iPhone to plugins etc so they could offer a full version on my mobile - their iPhone version is a valiant effort in the face of adversity.
It does exactly what I need, and has a user - developer interaction that feels second to none. I always know what Dave and Roustem are working hard on, and hear about their soon to be added new and improved features which always reflect the way they are listening to the latest in their user needs.
Apple could learn a thing or two from them!
