I tried so many table plugins over the years. It was the best when it was free, and it is still now at Premium. So far so good. It is one of my essential plugins

I've been using Table Press for quite awhile and the more recent improvements have been great. The right-click context menu makes updated, inserting and deleting rows and columns super easy. Clicking and dragging to reorder. Every time I think "I wish I could do x" it's already in there I just hadn't found it yet.
