I have bought Satin Ice, Fondex, Elite by fondex, Duff's, and some other Sweet...something and of course Wilton(gag) Satin Ice is good they were having some problems earlier but the 2 buckets I bought last week are great.
Fondex is also really nice I like the flavor better than Satin Ice. Elite is the best made by fondex. It tastes nice and is great to work with.
Duff's is too expensive and I find it greasy.

I have and still do when I have the time make my own. When it really count though I use Elite because making my own even though it taste really good is unpredictable because of the humidity or lack there of, (I live in Nevada) affects the fondant. hth Don't waste your$ on Wilton it is chemicaly tasting. hth

To me, the overall best fondant, including taste, workability, AND affordable price, is FondX, hands down.

If you only do a cake here and there its okay to make your own but if you are doing cakes every week, just buy it and count it in the selling price. Its so worth it.
