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 www.lsengineers.co.uk. 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
Developer and support very available and skilled. Thank you! September 12, 2011
This module is simply amazing! the support is second to none. My emails were answered in super quick time. I can't recommend this enough! We have 30,000 products and this search has improved our search to a very good standard. September 8, 2011
Php4u installed this for us yesterday and everyone involved in our project is impressed, it's very accurate and very fast. We haven't changed anything in the config, the results are great just as they installed it. September 2, 2011
we were having very horrible search results from magento default search. Magento by default does an "OR" search so it was searching for words regardless of where they were and returning 700+ results for almost every search. After installing PHP4U's lucene search module it instantly got refined down drastically and returned better and more appropriate results. I know this is marketed for it's speed but really this module increases better search results at blazing speeds. PHP4U's customer service was EXCELLENT. I've dealt with a lot of companies in the UK and it's hard to get responses, since i'm in the USA but PHP4U's response time was fast and professional. I give this development team 5 stars -Jeremy June 22, 2011
After some testing showed how badly the Magento standard search was performing for us, we installed this Blast Search extension. Wow! this is a serious improvement and has made a huge difference to the relevance of the results in our shop. The configuration has meant we've been able to set it exactly as we want it and the fuzzy parsing of variations and spelling mistakes means the right results get shown even if the search query isn't so great. Synonyms and standard search terms are still supported. Our search has gone from dreadful to excellent for very little outlay and next to no hassle. Add to this the excellent support and assistance we've received from Marcin and I would heartily recommend this product for your shop. Thanks again. James June 17, 2011
No need to install Java and Solr (which take 700Mb of memory when it is starting up and when it is empty...) Really usefull for production and performance for search feature, unfortunately not enough well know by people... Really work fine, will be in production in http://www.dedomtom.com, A must have !

Hi
Sorry for delay in reply - but those questions are not posted to us from connect.

If enough people will want it - we can add cms indexing there. For now only 3 people in 3 years asked for it.

Hello,

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?

Thanks

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

Answer: 
Hi
Thanks for the answer. No - SOLR is not required as we use php port to Lucene.

Please let us know if you have any other concerns
