WOW I installed this extension last night was really impressed with the results. I did a two word search prior to installing it and came up with over 100 results. After installation the same search came up with 7 relevant results. What a difference. Installation was easy and support is very quick to respond. December 6, 2013
A vast improvement As our store grew we pretty quickly realised that the standard search was not cutting it. After doing some research I decided to go with this extension and so far I am very pleased. Installation was fairly straight forward and only took about an hour. I had one small query and their support got back to me quickly and my question was resolved the same day. I have already noticed customers no longer leave after entering misspelled search terms which previously returned no results which is great! November 11, 2013
Zend Lucene, the Stock Magento Search killer Don't bother with any modules out there that aren't integrating Solr, Sphinx or in the case of Blast Search Lucene, actually using a built-in part of the Zend Framework that allows for all the common search techniques like stemming, plurality parsing and fuzzy match. It was an easy install, works with the Magento Layered Navigation filter to quickly and usefully narrow searches down to the items you wished to view. Various weighting features that allow you to boost certain attribute content in return value and moving items to the top and bottom of the returns are helpful in getting SERP viability much greater than stock Magento. The stock Magento Search uses MySQL "FullText" and "Like" searches and gives you exactly the results you can expect, especially with the "AND" logic enhancement pulled by Magento in 1.5 to increase the number of search matches. Free modules out there usually convert it to "OR" logic and you'd better have exact matches in the attributes you've allowed to be used in the search or you have the nasty dichotomy of "No Match" to the product you wish to see and "Too Many Matches" to all the other product that have combinations of the search words used in the search box.

Excellent support We bought this module 1 years ago and it improved search results quality and speed. They helped us with some customization (ajax search) for free. Now 1 year later we had another problem and they helped us again, even if it wasn't their problem. I can rate this modul 5 stars without thinking twice! August 30, 2013
Great solr search for those with simpler needs, cannot be beat especially for the price I have been extremely pleased with this product. WIth our low volume B2B site running on a shared server there was no need to go with the complexity and overhead of Solr and in fact my ISP would not allow it on the shared server. The search runs as advertised and their support is great. They even assisted us in finding a problem that admittedly was not their fault but instead an Enterprise configuration mistake on our part. August 27, 2013
Great extension and support! I've been using this extension for some time now, it's easy to handle, fast and works like a charm. The new version is really sweet with a nice interface/diagnostics screen. The support was great, instant answers and help! Just a great experience! August 13, 2013
Excellent support for an excellent extension This is the must-have extension for every magento shop. Our search results went from completely irrelevant to spot-on. We chose the option to have it installed it for us, and the whole process was done within a few hours, even on a Sunday. Not only was the extension installed, but they made sure it was adapted to our needs through extensive testing. They even helped spot a couple of non-related issues we had in our catalog, and thanks to that we could fix them as well. Two thumbs up for Blast Lucene Search! June 17, 2013
Excellent support, excellent module Magento's search out of the box leaves much to be desired, and Blast Lucene Search picks up the slack tenfold. The module functions just as it should, showing the most relevant results. Add to that the fact that their support team is fantastic, you can't go wrong with purchasing this module. Our search box went down due to an error on our end, I contacted their support team and got a response back within 5 minutes, and the issue was resolved within the next 20 minutes. Our team and our client couldn't be happier. June 7, 2013
Great Extension and GREAT support I bought and installed the extension and it improves the Magento search results by 1000 times. The products you expect to come up are actually the ones that appear in the search results. Installation was a breeze. Almost as good as the extension is the support. I had a problem with another extension, but it wasn't clear what was causing the problem. Php4u support helped me figure out what was going wrong and it wasn't even being caused by their extension! It doesn't get more dedicated than that. I have a second site and am about to buy the extension again for the other site since it is performing so well. April 29, 2013
Great support Hi, We were installing this extension on Magento CE 1.7 today. Something went wrong and we cannot make it work for some reason so we had to ask the developer for help. He spent at least 2 hrs with us, but made it work! The extension itself is very good - we've been using it for more than a year already. Much easier than to set up solr with similar results :) April 5, 2013

Please answer the previous question about CMS content. Does Blast Lucene offer the option to index CMS content, and if not, when will that feature be made available?

Does lucene refer to Apache lucene and does it run on solr? Or, is solr an added option?
