Gala Color Swatches Free
Works, but needs refinement
This extension does it's job without overriding existing functionality, though extensive modifications could cause it to not work properly. No notice about the copyright addition is unfortunate, but easily solved with a local.xml layout update.

Doesn't add the product to the cart ?
Well it shows everything as described but didn't add the product to the cart,
Whenever I tried adding to the cart it always shows an pop up with the error
"Please specify the product's option(s)."

Really good for free version + how to remove copyright
Really simple, just what I needed. Works perfect!
IMPORTANT: Saw many people complain about the copyright, and indeed this was my only negative point as well. But I found a solution...
TO REMOVE COPYRIGHT:
Go to: App/Design/Frontend/base/default/layout
Edit the file: "em_colorswatches.xml"
Find and delete the following piece of text and your done:
<block type="core/text" name="galathemes.copy">
<action method="setText"><text><![CDATA[<p style="text-align:center;font-size:0.8em"><a style="color:inherit;text-decoration:none" href="http://galathemes.com/magento-extensions/color-swatches.html">Color Swatches Magento extension</a> by Galathemes <a style="color:inherit;text-decoration:none" href="http://galathemes.com/">Magento Themes</a></p>]]></text></action>

Fix in settings.phtml for support of configurable products
// remove price
if opt.getAttribute('price')) key = trim(key.replace(/[\+|\-]([^+]+)$/, ''));

It works, but it needs changes in code to work on IE 9
If you want to make it work on all browsers (including IE 9) using Magento 1.7 / 1.8, open the file app/design/frontend/base/default/template/em_colorswatches/settings.phtml and replace the fireEvent function with this below:
var evt = document.createEvent("HTMLEvents");
evt.initEvent(event, true, true ); // event type,bubbling,cancelable
It worked for me.

This extension is good
This extension is good, but the images must be into /media/swatches not /media/color_swatches/

I want to have it more advanced...
It's a good extension but I sell cosmetics with various colors and I love to have a notice option that there are more colors available before you click on a product. There has to be a text underneath the product with more colors available notice. Or more colors available color swatch images of 15x15 pixels underneath the product image before you click on the product.
The copyright text on the product info page is indeed not professional for a real web store. I would like to have it removed if it's allowed.

Copyright link in the footer
This is barely simple extension, with all due respect to the owners. There is a copyright link in the footer that is placed without any notice, and it cannot be removed.
Thus, This is not useful for no proffesional usage.

After I installed the extension, I get a 404 Error - Page not fond when I try to enter the extension settings in System -> configuration . Does anybody knows what could be the problem? I've tried to rename the extension folder to "swatch" but nothing. Thanks
