Dynatrace Review

Gomez is also one of the most mature products out there, and has become the APM industry standard

Gomez is one of the only APM tools available that allows you to monitor performance from first mile (your data center) to last mile (your user’s browser). Gomez offers load testing, internet backbone performance monitoring, automated testing (anyone who’s used Selenium or QTP will find the interface very familiar), and performance and error level alerting. Compuware also recently introduced dynaTrace / PurePath, which gives you automatic transaction path detection, object level performance monitoring and allows you to get very granular with your transaction performance metrics. Gomez is also one of the most mature products out there, and has become the APM industry standard. It’s a great tool, but it’s priced by measurement, which means if you’re implementing RUM tags, synthetic tests, and dynaTrace, it can get very pricey for a high traffic site. Depending on your requirements, you might get what you need from some of the less expensive tools below.

I agree with you, and I would like to add three more features that Gomez has.
First feature is the mobile real-user monitoring, which enables orgranizations to understand the actual performance end users are experiencing when using native mobile applications or accessing websites from mobile devices.
Second feature is the mobile readliness assessment, which provides an automatic assessment of the readliness of a website for mobile visitors by scoring the site against a set of standards and suggesting areas of improvement.
Third feature is the integration with google page speed, which enables organizations to leverage Google technology to automatically assess web performance against a set of rules providing a specific score and recommendations for improvement.

I agree, the mobile metrics and recommendations are very helpful. You can, however, get mobile site data using the EUM offerings from some of the competitors I listed. Gomez stands out with the ease of integration with native apps.
The Google page speed integration is helpful as well, but other solutions are starting to integrate even more deeply with analytics data. The call comes down to a combination of your app stack (if you'd like to track server and object level transaction metrics), supported front end platforms, and cost.
