All the available renderers have different quality levels. The best is
probably the PDF renderer. If you get happy with the other renderers
depends on what you want to do. It's mostly a matter of trying and
seeing what happens. Every renderer is in productive use by at least a
few people. I can tell that from following the mailing list over a long
time. You will get happy with PDF as long as you don't need
functionality that FOP doesn't support, yet. As for the other renderers,
try them out with your use cases and see if you get happy.

You might find some more information about the renderers on this page:

I hope this helps.
