Jiri Novotny (Better ListView project manager) said: "We have created Better ListView because we'd been frustrated with the regular .NET list view control and couldn't find any viable alternative."

Jiri Novotny added: "We and our partners use Better ListView in our own consumer desktop products (for example, Swift To-Do List, the number one to-do list software for Windows). Better ListView is therefore thoroughly tested in the real world by thousands of users. Also, this guarantees its continued development and support in the future. It is not uncommon to find abandoned components by many small vendors, but that will not happen with Better ListView."

Better ListView is 100% compatible with .NET 2.0 and higher.

The pricing starts at $345 for single developer license. Source code licenses are available as well.
