For once, let’s be honest about an extension that is labeled “Advanced.”
Try searching for:
"camer" (no a) – Search for a Category – misspelling.
"tshirt" (no dash) – Search for a Category – misspelling.
"W81" (no ending i) – Search for a Model number – misspelling.
"OTOMAN" (no second T) – Search for an Item – misspelling.
"VGNTXN27N/B" (no dash) - SKU's must be entered EXACTLY as the store has them and just exactly how do customers know what format the store has them in? What if the format isn’t consistent throughout the entire store then what?
SEARCH RESULTS: None! Absolutely none! None whatsoever unless Aheadworks considers
“There is no items matching the selection” on an otherwise blank page a result for an extension labeled “Advanced?”
What if the store misspells one of its own product CATEGORIES? The entire product line would never be found using this “Advanced” Search extension!
What success rate is even possible when searching a BLOG since most every blog posted has many misspellings?
You indicate this extension can index 100,000 records! So what! The customer can’t find them and let’s be honest, it’s no secret the vast majority of people misspell while searching on the internet!
Our question is very simple. Why would we purchase this extension when the end result must be SALES and the customers’ ability to find them?

Very happy with this slider after trying lots of others. Read on...
We have been through quite a process of sliders and banners over the last few months. Tried many paid and free extensions. Many promised lots of fancy things, so we gave many of them a try but were disappointed. One vendor (of a paid extension) would not respond to support requests at all.
In the end, the many fancy sliders proved unreliable and 'quirky' so we opted for this slider extension from AheadWorks which we thought would be something less functionally ambitious, but from one of the bigger extension vendors who provides a better level of support than many.
This slider/banner was left to last to try because it did not seem overly exciting, but we tried it out eventually as frustration grew with all the other. Not sure why because we have many other AheadWorks extensions installed and are pretty happy with them all.
Anyway, this extension just works.... easy to install, easy to integrate into pages as it has its own widget. No problem whatsoever, so after quite a journey we are happy and am implementing this extension throughout all out web-stores.
Earlier I mention this extension might be less ambition... well it does not have some fancy transitions or HTML in banners (images only), but it does have click stats and scheduling which are very very helpful.
