    Doorway pages dont effect the toolbar PR. PR is only a factor of backlinks and nothing more.

    Doorway pages are not liked by google and if you use doorway pages there are high chances that you will not rank well in normal SERP's.

    Because that can be used to cloak with lots of keywords without any content (Eventually not helping the google users as well as yours).

    Doorway Pages is considered as a Black Hat SEO technique which many use but fail to reach their targets in the SERP's so a smart webmaster will always avoid it.

    Doorway pages—those that aren't useful or interesting to human visitors. Doorway pages are easy to identify in that they have been designed primarily for search engines, not for human beings. This page explains how these pages are delivered technically, and some of the problems they pose. As a rule of thumb, if you can't reach the page by following the site navigation, then it is a doorway page. You are not supposed to "visit" the page. Instead, you are just supposed to find it in the search results and then click through to get to the site in question.
    Thanks,

    Doorway Pages are web pages that have been created for the sole purpose of ranking highly in the search results for one or two search terms, and are not normally an integral part of the website.

    I saw a number of doorway generator products. Is there any of those that can avoid/prevent the SE penalization? It needs to be smart, to avoid obvious content duplication, provide readable content and be human-like...

    If you have doorway pages then you should really consider on the page re-organization so that you can get away with them as SE may on penalization.
