I would like to know best SharePoint Paid Admin Tools out there. Please NO vendors. As of now I really dont have any hard requirements. Just normal day to day Admin activities. SharePoint hasn't grown as much (in our environment) but I have the budget and like to acquire a tool before they take it out.

The issue of what's best is entirely subjective. You can go for some larger, more expensive "all-in" admin tools, such as Axceler's ControlPoint ( a personal favourte) and Doc Ave's AvePoint. These do a lot but as a result demand more system resource than more light weight tools.
You can also get tools for specific jobs, if you find that one particular item is taking a lot of time or resource.
The items I've liked and used in the past are: - 1 Control Point - http://www.axceler.com/products/controlpoint-sharepoint-products/sharepoint-administration/index 2 DocAve 6 - http://www.avepoint.com/docave6/
I'd also suggest browsing SharePoint Reviews to see how people are rating admin products there.
