I bought this extension a few months back and I can highly recommend Smart Slider 2 as the best solution available...
It really changed the looks of my site, making it more professional and Smart Slider 2 is completely responsive too...
The documentation is very clear and the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. You can insert about everything you like in a slider. I also use SS2 for non moving slides in a module position because it's so easy to implement...
I did not need any support but had a few simple questions, I contacted Nextend two times and received an answer within ten minutes, the fastest reply I ever had. I have a business license but will upgrade to a lifetime license because I don't want any site without Smart Slider 2 from Nextend...

Great Extension, Great Support!!!

This is an exceptionally excellent component. It is everything it claims to be. What is even more impressive is the top class support that exceeds all expectations. If you are after an amazing slideshow component you need not look further. You found it. I don't think you can find better. Previously I had Smart Slide and now I got Smart Slide 2. Worth every penny. I recommend you include support in your purchase. It’s worth it!

When looking for a Joomla tool to present featured articles on a front page, I came across Smart Slider 2. Before buying, I had some questions about the functionallity and they were answered within the hour. After running into some small bugs, support immediately stepped in and solved them within a day. Excellent. The tool itself is brilliant.

The level of detail in functionality and the user interface is amazing for a slideshow component. It feels like a stand alone, full featured, web application that integrates with joomla.
If you are in need for sliders often, the best value is the "Lifetime" package.

** Great support! - I had a question and it was answered in less than a day.

Smart Slider 2 is simply a fantastic product. Anything that we have tried to do, we have found a way to accomplish it. When we wanted to do some custom configuration, Nextend responded quickly with all the help we needed. Highly recommended.

Ok, YES the learning curve is a bit more with this extension than most slide shows. However, once you have it figured out it is awesome! It works fantastically, and you can create your own slider styles. Tired of looking for a slider that looks just like you want? Search no more. With this slider you can create that look you want. No more multiple extensions for slide shows that act or look differently on the same site. One extension, multiple possibilities.

I LOVE that the placement of the arrows and such can be set right in the admin panel instead of having to dig through css styles. Multiple similar slideshows are no problem with this extension. Simply duplicate the slide show and change the slide images, or whatever else needs to be changed and done. Duplicating slides is also a great benefit. Kudos to the developers for a well thought out extension.

Thanks for your review! We're glad to see that you're satisfied with our extension. :)

Because the Smart Slider 2 is a non-stop playground for us we're going to release a ton of new feature in the next year: new slider type, animations and extra demo sliders to export into your site and so on. So stay tuned. :)

I don't often post reviews but...

Over the years of working with Joomla I have used dozens of slider mods and components and I think I have finally found the one to rule them all.

It's a little bit of a learning curve but after getting my head around all the possibilities it truly is a beautiful and versatile Component.

The documentation is great and the support is awesome!

Great job guys - thank you!

I’m always on the search for better components to use on my selection of Joomla projects and l was looking for something that would assist or replicate the Parallax features and I’ve found Smart Slider 2. This component has changed my view on sliders and the large amount of options to use it on my sites. Smart Slider 2 is now part of my deployment strategy to all my new and existing projects. The team is awesome. They are supper fast in replying to questions and are looking for ideas. I’m super pleased to have found this awesome component and I can’t wait to see what the future versions will bring, as the last update has already features which I can instantly turn around on my sites. Big thanks and a A+++ for this component.
