Quick question when working with large'ish datasets, how well do grids generally perform when working with large volume of data (without having to resort to paging)? Is there a recommended max grid row size that one should not go beyond?
One of the applications we have in mind may be using grids with tens or even hundreds of thousands of rows and I built a sample grid with 10,000 rows and noticed the grid did take a while to initially populate and was generally sluggish in use.

Formspider Grid is performs really well with large data sets. It uses deferred rendering techniques, so even if you load it up with many rows, it will not try to render them all at once. It renders only the ones that can be seen by the user and dynamically adds the new rows to the grid while the user is scrolling.
However 10K rows is challenging for any grid. That's where you start to push the limits of the browsers.
