Thanks for the question, but I have to warn you that I won't be able to give you an un-biased opinion myself, perhaps another user will be able to. I can however give you a quick run down of why I developed J!WHMCS Integrator so you can perhaps have a clearer understanding of how it can help your business:
I entered the market as a hosting provider back in 2009 due to economic necessity (read: unemployed). I've been developing for the Internet now for 20 years, and quite frankly the days of using HTML and CSS to style each piece by hand for each application have long since passed. I wanted to focus on building my business, not coding a bunch of HTML, so I started looking for a way to integrate my new Joomla web site with WHMCS without having to do all the manual coding and tweaking that one is 'supposed' to do.
The reasons were simple for me:
1) HTML and CSS coding by hand is not my favorite thing in the world
2) My Joomla site already did all that work for me, why do I have to do it on WHMCS by hand?
3) What if I changed something, would I remember (no) to make that change in WHMCS?
All sounds good. I can't imagine there would be any issues, but is there any known issues integrating with Joomla 2.5.*, RocketThemes and K2?
Check out my latest design that I am working on:

If I understand correctly, the member login into joomla on the bottom right would correctly login the user into joomla and WHMCS, correct?
That member login should be our client login module and then yes, it would log the client into both Joomla and WHMCS. You can use any module to login but ours will show up correctly as logged in on WHMCS urls as well. kers7754;5637 wrote:
Also, is linking into WHMCS the same for domain avail check and adding products to cart?
Linking to WHMCS is basically just like linking to it if it weren't wrapped in Joomla. Every WHMCS link in Joomla has to be an external link. So it would be your website URL like this: [url:1f1nxfwb]http://your.whmcs-path/clientarea.php?action=domains[/url]
Essentially nothing changes with the URLs in WHMCS. All full URLs. You don't want to link to our component in any way in Joomla, always link to WHMCS via External URL.

There are minimal changes to make, most notably in the settings for J!WHMCS Integrator, to be sure all your URLs are repointed properly. If you don't have a split install, then that should be the extent of the changes. If you have to copy files over to another server for WHMCS to use (for ssl purposes due to a split install situation), that may require some additional copying and changing, but overall, it should prove to be fairly straight forward.
