The Data Grid and ListMagic don't compete, they compliment. They are like
two sides of the same coin. With both of them in your arsenal, you are
equipped to handle any contingency.

The Data Grid is a very wonderful addition to Rev 3.5. It allows for very
sophisticated presentations of data which are highly programmable and
database aware.

Where ListMagic shines, on the other hand, is in its ease of use. In less
than few minutes you can create a very attractive and professional listings
of text based data that has built-in headers, automatically sized columns,
filtering by column, editing, line addition and deletion, formatted
printing, drag resizable columns, column drag and drop, sorting by column,
geometry, line(s) selection, custom messaging, and much more, all without
having to write a single line of code or configure a single property.
ListMagic also works with Revolution versions 2.9 or greater.

So, it really depends on what you need to do at any one time. One thing is
for sure. With both the Data Grid and ListMagic at your disposal, you have
more capabilities than you will ever need to handle any task that comes your
way. ;-)

Aloha from Hawaii,
