I can't recommend the Smart Slider enough. A slider that ticked all the boxes for us, Responsive, accepts video, highly configurable.

We had a odd server config conflict on our hosting facility. The team investigated managed to fix in a matter of minutes. Superb service.

I invested in the lifetime license of this extension to be able to install it on unlimited websites. I am very pleased with my purchase. I needed a solution that displayed images and also a video in the slides.

I had a problem with the configuration of the slides (user error on my part). I contacted Roland for technical support. He promptly responded with a fix and instructions on use on the weekend no less!

Very pleased with my investment in this extension. It helps me provide a demanding client with exactly what they want!

This slider is wonderful but as others have said the support is top notch. After I installed the slider I had a small issue where I needed an extra field and I contacted support, Roland responded to me within 10 minutes and offered to rewrite the component to fulfill my request. I had the updated component, which met all my needs, within the hour!

I've spent a lot of time trying to find a good slider and THIS IS IT. Stop wasting your time and just buy this. It's really easy to set up and has lots of different styles and settings to suit any design.

One of the key points to a great extension is the support. The support is excellent and they are doing a great job! Once you buy this you won't need another slider...and it's only $30!! That's nothing.

Keep up the good work guys and thank you.

Although I ran into a few small problems when I first worked with this slider, support quickly responded to each of my emails. I love all the options available and how you can insert the module into an article easily. There are still a few options that I feel need some tweaking and some missing options, thus the rating, but overall I think this slider is very good and has the potential to be great.

I purchased this extension to create a promotion slider on my website. This component has a bunch of customization options to style the slider exactly how you want.

One of the features I was looking for in a slider was the ability for it to work with a responsive template. After communicating with support through their website, they were able to create multiple sliders for different ranges of screen sizes. Their support responses were quick and they spent several days going back and forth with me to try to provide the exact functionality that I was looking for. Unfortunately, it was not possible to make the slider 'fluid' and have it expand or contract with the screen size.

The slider does work and display perfectly on mobile devices, it just doesn't resize to the screen because it uses absolute dimensions instead of a percentage.

I was unable to use this extension because of my requirements for it to be responsive and, even though it was a misunderstanding of the features on my part, the developers offered a full refund.

I will definitely consider using this component in the future if I move to standard template or if Smart Slider incorporates responsive design functionality.

I had a problem installing it, submitted a support ticket and the guys were on it immediately. Turns out the problem was on my end. I use the extension to organize media on a website. I make "album" cover photos and group embedded videos from Vimeo and YouTube as well as podcasts from Podbean. All work flawlessly. The component is easy to understand and makes a module for you so you can put your slider in articles. I couldn't be happier. Theses guys rock!
