I have tried many frameworks for building meta boxes. This one is the best meta box plugin so far. The developer is pretty active, I have contributed several times. This plugin stays out of your way and has a pretty neat code base.
I much prefer Meta Box over other similar meta box or custom field frameworks. They have very good documentation and examples available.
