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!

I've just used this extension for the first time and was extremely pleased with it. It installed no problem and worked brilliantly out of the box.

What's more, the support I have received from Offlan is amazing - they really went out of the way to help me customise the slider theme.

Thanks guys!

This slider actually does what it promises. It can be fully customized from the admin panel except for the outer shadow of the slider. Contacting support about this resulted in a quick reply and a simple, well explained solution for this plus a promise for an option to disable the slider shadow from the admin panel in the next version.
Another advantage is that it is easy and pleasant to use, with realtime previews on the slide you're working on. Thus saving time. This slider is absolutely the best I could find. It's not just 'smart' it's 'super smart'!
