Great extension, can't even compare it to the regular out-of-the-box search! If you need your store to have a proper search engine, this is the perfect extension for you - doesn't require additional software installed on the server, just install the extension, configure it, index the database and you're all set - enjoy the improved search results. Easy to install, easy to configure, prompt and friendly support, works like a charm on a 1GB+ database. Totally recommend! March 10, 2012
Good extension and a really great support. I had some issues during installation (mainly due to my hosting plan) but people from Php4u helped me in all ways. They didn't stop helping me untill I had my new Search extension running perfectly. Goog job.Thanks. February 22, 2012
BSL from Php4u is one of the most useful magento extensions to have. The support of fuzzy and plural searches is necessary for any commercial-grade search product. Blast Search Lucene has these functionalities, while the default magento search does not. The support for multiple-pass search process is straight-forward and very practically useful. My configuration is to use fulltext-exact-and search in the first pass, fulltext-fuzzy-and search in the second, and fulltext-wildcard-and in the last pass. This works out great for my store of 10K SKUs. This extension is much better than the default one and the other extensions like the Better Store Search. I spent a few hundred dollars on that and had to drop it after using it. BSS is better in marketing but is not in the same useful level compared to this one because the technology used underline is different. BSS uses native MYSQL search while BSL uses much more powerful Lucene. There is still some basic functionalities to be expected from BSL, such as supporting synonyms, taking advantage of the fuzzy factor, more flexible combination of search passes, etc. One thing I do not like about this extension is that the code is obfusticated and you won't to able to do your own enhancement and customization in source code level. However, the bottom line is that you won’t go wrong with this purchase. February 18, 2012
Great support... had some issues and they helped out within minutes... January 16, 2012
Glad someone has an affordable, lightweight, serious search extension like this. Magento's default search is insanely bad, and this is insanely good. Simple things like plural search are very valuable in real-world scenarios. And the support is the fastest I think i've ever used, anywhere. Hopefully this does what we need for years to come. 5 stars. It even has ability to prioritize individual products, which is not listed on the specs. January 6, 2012
Great product with very fast support! It took a little time for our store to index properly, but the extension is exactly what we were looking for. A+ support! December 16, 2011
Unbelievable support. Great work. Great product. Every serious Magento store needs this extension. December 14, 2011
I have installed this extension six times now on various client sites in different languages ranging from 1,000 SKU to 2,200,000 SKU - in each case the Blast Lucene Search performance is excellent and is extremely relevant - this had the effect of a superior end user experience which flows through to making more money for my clients on day one after install. Marcin, the developer, has a combination of top programming skills and real-world ecommerce experience which is evident in this excellent product. This extension is on my must-have list. December 9, 2011
Absolutely a must have extension for any site. The extension works great out of the box and Blast also gives great customer service on any issues that come up. Great extension! November 4, 2011
We've been using this extension for a couple of months in production on our site I can honestly say its the best money we've spent and easily paid for itself in the first week or so. The extension is well written and well supported and is the most cost effective way to improve Magentos awful search out-of-the-box (imho). For us it was the improvement in relevancy of returned results rather than speed improvements (although that's great too). Highly recommended! - Ian September 21, 2011

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?
