    Fantastic extenion! Works beautifully on 4.1.0 I had a little glitch with permissions, but Chad put me on the right track. May 8, 2012
    It looks like this only works for configurable products and not simple products with custom options :( April 12, 2012
    I deleted my previous review because my issue was do to my error! I was able to receive immediate support from Chad and he was a great help! This extension is exactly what I needed! Great work Chad. May 24, 2011
    Thanks Chad, this extension is easy to setup and use, but not for the huge amount of simple products associates with configurable product. It is working great in the configurable product which have around 80 simple products, but it will slow down the product page loading time beyond the amount of 80. In my case, I have 45 color + 7 size in one configurable product, it means there are over 250 simple products associate with this configurable product. It takes over 18s to load the product page. Really not acceptable. I submitted this issue to Chad, and he really insisted this issue was due to my image size problem. Then Ok, we try to resize the images liked 20*20, but issue still there. After that we even remove all images, but the page loading time still takes over 19s. So, we have tried: 1. Resize color swatches images to 20*20px. 2. Removed all images. 3. Use a clean flash, default template Magento for testing this Auto Color Swatches extension. 4. Rebuild the product database. 5. Upload the website to VPS 6. Optimize PHP, SQL, gzip..... 7. Test it in Magento 1.4.1.1 & 1.5.1 None of that is working to speed up loading product page. Just the ONLY method is that DISABLE this Color Swathes extension, the loading time speed up to 4s. I have told Chad what I did and what I found, even gave him my product database file and color swatches images for his testing, but he just reply that my issue is not due to his extension and " really do not see how this could be affecting performance unless the images are not optimized..." , Wow, we even remove all images, so how does the images cause the issue liked what he said. I just wonder why he not willing import my sql file for testing, just import the database file and test, he will see the issue or maybe can find a way to improve the code. Ok guys, if you have less than 100 simply products associate with configurable product, than you can take a chance to try this extension, but if you liked my case there are over 200-300 simply products, than you properly try other color swatch extensions. May 18, 2011
    This extension worked wonderfully. It needed a bit of tweaking for my site, but Chad was more than willing to help out. It works perfectly with either hex colors or uploaded image files. I have 12 color options and will have almost 1000 simple products from 25 configurable products, all with customizable options, and this extension will handle it with no problem! Bottom line, this works just as described, and is customizable. Well worth the money! Looking forward to your future modules and extensions :-) Thanks again for everything Chad! September 18, 2010
    this extention seems to be fine but i have 2 questions. Is it for simple or configurable products? is it possible to have other attibutes size or color + size? Thanks August 26, 2010
