I used this module like 8 month ago and wasn't pleased with it. Now I moved to Joomla 2.5 and K2 and with all the options this module is probably the best news slider there is right now. Installed and running in 1min, now I have to adjust css. I tried all the other modules, but most are missing k2 support or are limited in showing k2 article details. Only module fetching the main k2 image. Have to check if it displays the rating.
In case you want to improve, show video, gallery and attachement icon when published in k2 so reader knows this article has extra media.
If they keep up the good work, this will be number one choice displaying news frontpage.
