"Excellent datafeed !!!" - Comment from Arely
"With HUGE volume on AAPL and RIMM for 2 days, everyone in a trading room was whining about freezes, crashes and lag with *******, RealTick, TS and Cyber. InvestorRT with IQFeed was rock solid. I mean SOLID!" - Comment from Public IRC Chat

"Thanks for the great product and support. During this week of high volume trading, my QuoteTracker + IQ Feed setup never missed a beat. Also, thanks for your swiftness in responding to data issues. I was on ******* for a few years before I made the switch over early this year, and wish I had done it a long time ago." - Comment from Ken

I've been using IqFeed for several years to get end-of-day option data along with quotes, dividend info, and split info for optionable stocks. I absolutely need end-of-day data and being able to monitor the market in real-time is desirable, but not required at this point. The reliability of the IqFeed for downloading approximately 300,000 items a day in chunks of 500 (due to the symbol limit) along with the format of the data, and stability of the API leaves a lot to be desired.

Is there a better product available for EOD option data?
