Ecommerce carts/packages

Hoping some could give their opinions on the mass of Ecommerce shopping cart packages. My host has the below carts on offer, but I’m not sure which to go with. My partner of crime is a php guy, I just do/learn what I can! Am looking into creating our item listing page, so need a customizable left filter menu…Thanks for any feedback…

EPAGES
READYSCRIPT SHOP
CUBECART
HHG MULTISTORE
LEPAYSYS
MAGENTO
MODIFIED SHOP
OPEN CART
osCOMMERCE
OXID eSHOP COM/PRO ED
PINNACLE CART non-KA
PRESTASHOP
ZEN CART
Ecwid

There are a couple of SitePoint articles which might help here:

Thanks a lot TechnoBear, will check them out.
All seem to have their own benefits… Magento/OpenCart/Zen and osCommerce seem to be the most popular.

We are in the process of making an Ebay auction like store, so which ever cart we go with, it’ll have to be highly customisable. Open source seems the way to go. Quick search of addons with Zen and there’s auction type plugins.

Would be good to know if a dynamic item filter menu is provided and if listings support customised item templates…if not, how simple it would be to add a customised item template and assign variables accordingly
