Hi,

I looked at all of them and especially at the result format they offer,
and I like the one by QuestionPro best:
http://www.questionpro.com/results/index.html
I tried questionpro's free trial, so I will probably go for it...

the excel result format is quite convenient (I think better than the others)
http://www.questionpro.com/userimages/1354/SurveyReport-439573-8-17-2007.xls

the others have all the same surveys,
nobody offers complex evaluations (co-occurrence or other correlation 
mathematics) afaik,
or if they do then at elevated prices.

thanks for the list,
best
Leo
