I would like to know whether “Essential Grid” (Both GridControl and GridDataBoundGrid) support the following features
1. Export the grid to Excel
2. Can I have both cellbutton (like in example In Depth/CellButton) and CellCommentTips for a cell?
Please also mention if feature is available in both GridControl and GDBG.

You can easily write CSV or TSV (or any delimited file) from either a GridControl or a GridDataBoundGrid. You can find code snippets at the bottom of this thread. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=3292
To write out XLS files, you can do this if you have our ExcelRW product. We ship an 220.127.116.11\ExcelRW\Samples\Grid\ExportFromGrid sample.
I think you should be able to have cellbuttons and excelcomments in the same cell. There are special problems you have to handle to use excelcomments in a GridDataBoundGrid since that grid stores no style ifnormation on a cell by cell basis. There is a KB article on doing this. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/article.aspx?id=10369
