I've tried many animated sliders and this one by far excels over all of them. Not only is it the best extension of its kind, its the most flexible one as well. The extension allows me to either show images only, images and text, animate text and there is a wide selection of transitions available as well. However one of the biggest factor in selecting an extension to use on your site is knowing that support is there when you need it. The support these guys have is amazing. Its like the developer is sitting right there beside you. The support is that good and so is this product. It'll be the only extension I'll go with when I'm developing and need something of this nature.
