Rated 5 out of 5 by Loubz Magnificient extension
This extension is pure magic.
Extremely easy to install and configure.
Needed to make a small change and it was very easy to do. The code is clean and respect Magento's guidelines.
Support was really fast (less than a day to answer) and really helpful.
If you want to upgrade Magento's basic search, this is the way to go!

Johann was very quick to respond and provided excellent support. We had an issue with a theme file that he fixed very quickly.
Would definitely buy from him again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarstenSchmitz Great extension - great support
We have a new webshop with more than 250k+ products. So we had to get a good and fast search. We wanted a fulltext search (even the descriptions of the products should be indexed) with features like suggestions on bad search phrases and a fault tolerant search. So MySQL as engine has been no choice. On our search for better fulltext search engines we found elasticsearch a cluster based search engine (single node on localhost is possible too). And even better we found this extension that would integrate our elasticsearch engine.
The search indexing process in the backend is really fast even with descriptions of the products included (< 10 minutes) The performance and the relevance of the search results in the frontend are fast, impressive and more than satisfying. The speed, relevance and ordering of the search hits is outstanding good.
We found a little bug and contacted the developer. The response time and time for eliminating the bug has been fast and competent.
Yes, we are a very satisfied customer and yes we recommend this extension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by madearl Highly recommended search enhancement
Let's face it, the integrated MySQL search stinks. This module adds support for elasticsearch, which is the current state-of-the-art open source search solution.
Not only is this search engine lightning quick, but it comes with features like a suggest that actually suggests something before the sun goes down, complete with thumbnails of the products in the suggest fold-down menu. Fuzzy search means you can mistype and still get good results, and with added "Did you mean?" suggestions.
The Bubble Search module integrates all this nicely into Magento in an easy to use fashion and with useful default settings. Other than you having to install elasticsearch, which is easy to do for a search engine, it is basically plug and play.
I've found the developer's support to be outstanding, he's always quick to respond and help if a problem arises. Take it from someone who's been in the Enterprise Search business for a good dozen years: You want this search, and you don't need a way more expensive legacy search solution for most business cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rtdmatt2010 All seems to work well
A little tweaking on the settings side to allow greater weight to the product title and now the results work well. Easy installation. Would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by mageprofis Fast and easy to integrate, works perfect!
Excellent code quality, easy to integrate and it does what's been described on the box ;)
If you need a fast industry standard drop-in replacement for the default magento search with ElasticSearch base, you should take an eye on this nice extension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by btray77 Elasticsearch by BubbleShop A++++
Magento's built in search is worthless in the niche i'm in. So many people misspell the names of products or don't know exactly what they are searching for. Elasticsearch to the rescue! It's able to work without any special settings and deliver the correct products to the user. Search is useful again!
Support has been fast for me, even on weekends.
Just remember to secure your elasticsearch
I use iptables:
(maybe centOS specific)
sudo iptables -A INPUT -i lo -p tcp --dport 9200 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 9200 -j DROP
Must do this to each port elasticsearch is using 9201,etc..
To undo the above
sudo iptables -D INPUT -i lo -p tcp --dport 9200 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -D INPUT -p tcp --dport 9200 -j DROP
service iptables restart

Rated 4 out of 5 by buric Works out of the box
This extension works good. However, developer support is poor. Developers are giving suggestions that are not very helpful and the response time is slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by funkdoobiest Lightweight, working and clean extension
It's just working and indexing speed is overwhelming.
