I've gotten really comfortable and confident with this theme. It is compatible with all the plugins I like. It doesn't have a lot of crap code, as far as what little I know about code... really simple and clean. menu and responsive elements work good. I'd suggest adding a few css id's to the style sheet because some of the page elements are named things that might not be intuitive to the layman. Like the footer is not named footer and the header is not named header, etc. you gotta check the php files for those id names. I've used this theme on a few of my sites so far, and no problems. works well with Q2W3 Fixed Widget for the side bar and with Easy Fancybox.
