I spent a chunk the day trying different sliders on our sites that will host slide decks that look like whiteboard or PowerPoint presentations. For our application we needed something that the user could manually scroll through the slides at their own speed as they read them. Overall this was probably the better of the free ones I loaded on our test sites.

First it installed flawlessly without issue. Obvously that's a biggie!

Secondly, it has the Module side and Component side which allows you to create different shows for different pages. Another plus.

Next, it's FREE. We all love free.

Sadly we couldn't use it for the following two reasons. Our slides are on clear/transparent backgrounds which is what we really wanted, but it wasn't a deal breaker. Unfortunately this program turns transparent backgrounds to a white opaque background. That was ok, as a white background was our second choice. This will make the presentations look like they're on a whiteboard. Unfortunately our sliders must be set so the reader can manually advance the slides as they read them. On this slider, you can't see the nav buttons if the slide has a white background. They blend in, so you just have to know that they're there.

Had it not been for that issue with the buttons, this would have worked well. I liked how it was laid out though, so we bought their Pro version. It won't support clear slides either, but other than that so far we love it. It's was only $12 and well worth it. I'll rate it in the next few day.

If nav buttons aren't an issue for you, this may be a good choice.

I installed this module, published it, and my site crashed. I know it was this extension as when I unpublished it, the site came back. I have now uninstalled the extension, but my site is EXTREMELY SLOW. Will probably have to re-build from scratch. Not sure what happened, but it seems to be directly related to this extension. Very disappointed...

Hi Friend,
I am sorry but your assumption is incorrect since when you uninstall a extension all its files are deleted. This is how Joomla works. If you would have opened a ticket we could have told you this, but instead you are trying to damage our business buy giving us a bad review for now reason.

This is the type of extension that many many joomla sites need, and many joomla extension makers need to achieve; EASY to install, EASY to administer! Keep in mind that I've only had it a week, but based on what i've seen, the programmer must have had people use it a lot before it was released. Sophisticated like expensive software. GREAT JOB!

After upgrading several sites, I needed a new slideshow extension because the one I was using wasn't 2.5/3.0 compatible.

Installed this one on two sites so far, and it couldn't be easier. Installing and configuring is simple and straightforward. Had a problem with image jump on one site. Contacted the developer, and got a quick reply (less than 10 hours!) with a simple fix. Fantastic support for a free product!

Tested on IE, FF, Chrome, Safari, and Opera on Windows 7, Chrome on Android 4.0.4 phone, Chrome and FF on Android 4.2.2 tablet, FF and Safari on Mac OSX Mountain Lion, and Safari on iPad OS6. The slideshow displays consistently on all devices. If you're having a problem with the display, I can confidently say it's your css, and not this extension.

I highly recommend this component and module. You won't be disappointed.

The best of the freebie sliders that I have tried by a long shot. Well organised, flexible, and looks great. You add each slide individually which sounds cumbersome, but is easily the best way of achieving the results you want. And actually, it took less time to set up than many of the other sliders on offer that are 'simpler' in design.

There is a pro version which I haven't tried but if it's better than this free one then it's well worth the 12pounds they're asking!

I have tried about ten different slideshows and this is is by far the best I have used. It is really easy to use, simple to configure and logical in the way it works. Thank you for a wonderful contribution.

I was use many "responsive" extensions slide show and this is the best extensions i ever use.
Others extension usually have many css and js, conflict js, made site loading slow and wasting time to solved the problem.
But this extensions is very easy to understand and very easy to setup, no conflict js and it has many advantages, amazing product, fast loading.
This is the real responsive slide show in JED!.

Easy to intsall and configure but Safari on Windows just can't handle it. The browser displays the slides all stretched on top of each other before the slider effects kick in.

A Joomla! must-have. This slider is fantastic. It's easy to setup and looks amazing. You can use it for a slider or just for an interactive graphic.
Such a good buy, I'm just angry that I didn't finding it sooner.

Works great, easy to set up and very flexible. Had a small CSS issue (my template, not the module) that was conflicting. Used the support site to send an e-mail and it was answered very quickly. I highly recommend this if you need a good slider!

When I first used the extension, the version was not responsive, but the good fellows at Unite advised that they where very close to launching a responsive version.

Sure enough last week they emailed me that they had completed the extension and they provided me the module and plugin to try it out. I am not sure if the version on JED is the responsive version.

I was at first getting an jQuery conflict, but they resolved that for me, it was a bit of a work around, caused more by the template that I was using and not Unite Nivo Slider.

I have now tested it with an Artisteer 4.0 BETA 2.0 template and it works just fine no problems, see the second reference link.

Also of all the sliders around, and there are a lot based on the Nivo Slider, the Unite version offered the best user guide for its installation and configuration.

If you are looking for a responsive slider, look no further.
