FPDF, PDFLib with PHP which one to choose?

FPDF is a php class used to generate PDF files out of text or html files. ‘F’ stands for Free.

Whereas PDFLib is also a powerful class for generating PDF files, but its not free.

Have you tried any of these with PHP? Which one would you prefer?

In terms of features, customization, encoding facilities and above all performance. Have you tried using ajax to get data from mysql and then post it to create PDF using PHP?

This weekend, I am working on both of them, if you happen to work on them already. Please drop me a line.
