If you can provide more information on your purpose (preaching? personal study? research project?)

A little bit of all three so getting recommendations as to best ones in each class is what I was after. The best commentaries site is useful but personal comments are even better.

Another that I forgot to mention (and only recently realized is available in Logos, in this IVP package: http://www.logos.com/product/9681/ivp-new-testament-studies-collection#010 ) is Witherington's Letters and Homilies for Hellenized Christians, Vol 1 which includes the Pastorals and also 1-3 John. Witherington's effort is good and his introduction is well worth reading. The commentary hits squarely between the 'academic' and 'lay' audiences. Academics are probably left wanting a little more; lay folks are probably left wanting a little less.
