Automatic Related Products by aheadWorks
The extension is five stars, the support is ten
It's easy to give this extension five stars - if there were six or seven I'd choose them as well. The extension works as advertised of course, but what makes it a standout is the levels to which the support team will go to make sure that you're happy with the product.
Forget looking at any competing extensions based on price - if you do, you'll be doing yourself out of some of the most impressive support you will fine on Magento Connect.

Great extension with excellent support
This extension has saved me so much time it's easy to customise and once set up it works right from the box. If you are looking at setting up related cross selling products and have a lot of products then it well worth the money. I requested the positioning of the block to fit in with my template and the support at aheadWorks got on this right away and sorted it out for me.

Best investment in a long time
Bought this together with two other extensions from aheadWorks.
Probably the best investment in a long time.
The support is fantastic, nothing like ive ever experienced before.
I screwed up installing it, wrote a ticket, within an hour they managed to log on, fix the errors, and even telling me how to optimize the site.

Amazing Product and Support
We purchased this extension on behalf of a client but unfortunately due to our bespoke page template the extension didnt fit straight away. I notified AheadWorks and within 5 minutes they replied saying they would look into it. We exchanged several emails throughout the next hour until they had re-written their code so that the extension worked within our template. Excellent service!!

A great extension supported by an outstanding developer
The ARP2 extension was recommended to me by a colleague and after a few customizations by the aheadWorks staff it was easy to understand why. This extension is very well thought out, saves a TON of time and is work every penny.
I must stress how terrific the aheadWorks support staff is. I had many (maybe too many) specific requests and needs, and aheadWorks made all of the customizations necessary to answer these requests, over a very short time period.
I have no doubt that I will be contacting aheadWorks first regarding any future extensions that I will require.

Now I don't have to do this by hand
I love this product it saves me a bunch of time. I upgraded my site and with the new theme, it didn't work right way because of the way the theme was designed. After a couple emails I was up and running they also informed as to why the extension was not working. Great service. We love aheadworks products point blank and I always go to this company first whenever we need anything.

Good as long as you don`t have too many blocks
This extension is very useful as long as you don`t create too many automatic related product blocks.
We used it for some time without problems in the product view but when we continued to add more and more blocks (in the end we had a total of about 30 blocks) the extension slowed down our product page load by 4 seconds, so we had to uninstall it.
Would be great for future releases of ARP, if the products of the ARP blocks could be indexed or cached.

This Extension is a Life Saver!
I am extremely pleased with this extension.
Instead of having to relate products manually and for each product, I can now set logic rules that will auto-relate products for me!
For example, you can create rules like, "your attribute" is same as, contains, is not same as, greater than, less than, etc.... "the product being viewed" and viola. Related products.
You can set how many related products are shown, if they are displayed randomly or in order. I mean, everything is there to do what you need to do.
Great job by these guys.

Saves time & effort
The automated related products extension has really saved us time and effort to manually add products every time a new product is added onto our system. Its a great extension to aid automation on our processes and reduce manual labour.
