I have never found any package which contained ALL the features that I want so, I am writing my own.  Buying loggind software is a lot like buying underwear, what fits well on on person may feel like an eternal wedgie to another.

I just ran a couple of contests for the first time (Oceania Contest) and used the N1MM contesting software.  I found it pretty easy to pick up and use on the first go.  It was also very easy to produce cabrilo format files to send off the results, and also very easy to export what I had done into my general software - XMLog.  

We used it in the two contests with my club and made about 1000 contacts with it - no problems at all.  It is freeware and it is also very much supported.  There is a yahoo site that answers questions and is very active!  There you have my two cents, hope it helps.

N1MM Logger for serious contests. For light stuff and general logging, DXLab's DXKeeper is excellent. Both are freeware and have excellent support.

I personally use xlog both for general purpose logging and for contests.  With the hamlib support it does draw frequency, signal strength, and mode information from the rig.  It can also draw information from gmfsk (digital mode software which I use for PSK31).  It can output logs in Cabrillo, ADIF, or EDI format.  It's nice and easy to use.

The catch:  I run Linux.  xlog is not available for Windows.  See: http://www.qsl.net/pg4i/linux/xlog.html

I see your post is over a month old, but I was wondering why type of contest program you want, ie, RTTY, CW, SSB??  General purpose?  My answer to your question would depend on which kind of contest you plan to work.
