We are currently upgrading a site to 2.5 and I am using this module at least 3 times on the home page and once on an inner page.
It is a slider, gallery, news reel +++++ all in one, and it looks fantastic.
And by a great Aussie team.
Ok, love fest over :D
If you are looking for something more casual than a forum this is a great option.
Support is quick and responsive. Great to see components with this level of design and configuration.
