Functionality
Used the free version to test it out, then immediately purchased the Pro version for all of its options.
Ease of use
Found a slideshow / slider that worked with my custom html responsive grids and still had an interface easy enough for all backend authors.
Support
The key information to your issues are there. Each website has its own conflicting plugins, so be prepared to experiment.
Documentation
More detailed than many other plugins (including paid) I've used.
Value for money
I've paid a lot more for plug-ins that provided a lot less value.
I used this to: If your slideshow is blank (even though you saw the loading spinner), it is most likely a script error (Squeezebox being called from Attachments in my case.) I used Disable Mootools by ExtensionBase to resolve my conflicting issues.
