After doing research about what's on the market for auto-complete extensions, I decided to install 'searchanise', because of the good features, price and positive reviews.
I just installed in into my testing environment and had this up-and-running within minutes, including full indexing! I must say this is just an excellent extension and i'm happy to have this for free.
I'll install it in the production environment very soon and once our shop grows bigger we'll definitely go for the paid pro-version!
Small business - > Free extension -> Growing business -> Paid functionality. I love this method and wish all developers would do this.
@magentoconnect, why don't you use it here? No autocomplete and this one is the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by kamaluppal The best solution ever for search!
Using searchanize is like using google search. I think it actually has a brain hidden in there somewhere :) Customer satisfaction is unprecedented and the product is flawless. The best part is, the developer offers you both free and paid versions and the differences are minor. Even the free version is fully functional, if you are comfortable with the small searchanize branding below the search box plus a few other small tweaks. The search is all cloud based, so your server breathes better as well. Excellent product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by echazen Works great until you want to uninstall.
I installed this extension on our development server using the IP address associated with it. When it was time to go live and we moved into production using our live domain/url, the extension would not pick up the domain.
Even after multiple incidents of reindexing, it kept using the IP and, therefore, produced nothing but 404 errors.
I uninstalled and then reinstalled but that didn't help because THIS EXTENSION LEAVES TABLES EVEN AFTER UNINASTALL.
I uninstalled and removed the old tables and then tried to reinstall again. It took my entire site down because it was LOOKING for the tables! Why would installing an extension not recreate the tables needed?
Support told me I needed to upgrade to the paid version if I wanted them to look into it. I understand that support shouldn't be free, but this is a case where they have a bug in their extension that I believe I helped discover that should be repaired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gennie_c Highly recommended
This is so much better than the standard magento search. It looks good and it works well. I will be using this on all my stores from now on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dbrunsden The Best Auto Search Extension
Absolutely brilliant extension, simple to use and works out the box in minutes.
Does everything you need and in the latest release allows even more customisation with CSS & other various settings.
Support is great and they will go the extra mile for anyone with issues (like I had in my last install when I manually changed loads of code!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by sterlini UPDATE TO MY PRIOR REVIEW
I left bad marks prior as I had problems installing-comments were left from the developer and all is well. I haven't explored all the options, but from what I see THIS IS AWESOME. I've tried a few search/autocomplete plugins, this is the best
PLEASE NOTE: (problem I had)
"It is very important to disable the Magento compilation before installing the Searchanise"
INSTALL INFO HERE-
I'm not affiliated with the developer, however, I do feel I must correct my earlier post

Rated 1 out of 5 by sterlini Wiped out my site
I could not get this to work. I installed and reinstalled 3 times. Cleared cache,logged out, etc. I could not get back into my admin panel-not even an error, I came to a totally blank page. Looks like a worthwhile plugin that I wish I could try
