Drazin and Wagner (both modern orthodox rabbis) produced not only a fantastic translation of Onkelos. They also have included modern and extensive commentary that while building on Rashi and the Talmud is also modern, interesting and at parts exciting. Their descriptions of Parashot Korach and Balak as well as the discussion of the possible differences between Ohel Moed and the Mishkan are unusually interesting and clearer than anything I have seen in the past.
Also the publisher did an excellent job. Very high quality paper with beautiful printing and binding. The Rashi commentary which is included in most Chumashim is the clearest typeface with nikud. Can't recommend this set more strongly.
