I'm having a hard time choosing between the jqGrid and DataTables jQuery plugin. I want to use the plugin for displaying tables with large amounts of data, using features like pagination, column sorting and the like. So far both plugins qualify, but i'm also concerned with performance since i'll be displaying large amounts of data (approx. 100.000 rows). I googles around and searched this forum but was not able to find useful information about the performance of these two plugins. Do you guys have any experience with these two plugins and what can you say about the performance? Do you know of any other plugin that provides the above mentioned features and performs reasonably with large amounts of data?
