    from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Appreciate it!

    ReSharper is simply not a tool that I would trust when developing serious software I’m afraid. It reports false errors sometimes that suggest it misunderstands the C# language at a fundamental level.

    For example it reported (as an error) “Cannot declare a pointer to a non-unmanaged type” for some code that compiles and runs fine under VS 2008, VS 2010 and VS 2012.

    In this case the analyzer failed to see that the pointers were being used within a “fixed” block and so it was completely legal C#.

    Another is an error reported about the use of the “??” operator, it claimed that the left hand operand can never be null but this was untrue (and could never be deduced anyway by any static analysis).

    Entrusting costly (and often already tested) source code to such a tool with these kinds of fundamental weaknesses in its semantic analysis is just too big a risk in my view.

    I can’t speak for the other products, I simply tried ReSharper a few weeks ago and applied to some pretty complex real-time stuff I have here and was pretty shocked at the laxity I saw.
