Search ― Search Sphinx Ultimate

Sphinx Search Ultimate is a Magento extension that combines all the most modern approaches to the product search for online stores. Here you’ll find all you need in order to do a product search in your online store closer to the ideal.

Sphinx Search Ultimate unites such products as Search Spell-Correction, Search AutoComplete & Suggestions and Advanced Sphinx Search Pro into a single operating mechanism of high-performance and convenient search for the Magento online store.

Often users do not know exactly how to spell the name of a particular product. And search tips help greatly to quickly find the right product. When a user types the first few letters of the search phrase, a tip phrase drops down and a user sees a list of search phrases or goods from catalog that best match to the products he wants to find.

In case a user made a mistake in writing a search query, we will not show nil results. We are trying to fix the problem and show him what he was looking for.

The search mechanism uses the advanced search technology Sphinx, which provides a highly relevant results in a fraction of a second. Sphinx is an open source search engine that significantly improves the relevance (quality) and the speed of search. Your visitors find the products that they are looking for. Using a s Sphinx earch engine increases conversion of visitors who are looking for something to customers by more than 50%.

    About the Developer

    This extension was developed by and is supported by Mirasvit

    Search ― Search Sphinx Ultimate 5 5 51 51
    Great extension and awesome support After a painless installation we run into some problems with the display of the autocomplete field and especially with the performance of some big search result pages. As it turned out, the performance issue was related to a complex layered navigation. After contacting the support of Mirasvit, they helped us extremely fast and professional. Within hours both problems were sorted out and we are very happy with the new search engine. Search results are highly configurable and very relevant. Also the extension (even though we are not using a dedicated sphinx daemon) is very fast (3000+ complex products). I can really recommend this to anyone wo needs a better search than magentos standard built-in search functionality. March 25, 2014
    Powerful and very useful module I use almost a year modules of the company "Mirasvit" , it is really very powerful and high-quality products , this time I would like to write about how much has changed modules - developers make it comfortable, functional and add new features. They create a really modern modules - which are really necessary for a successful e-commerce. I Use magento - all modules work perfectly ! Separately, I want to tell about the development team - they are true professionals, they are willing to help in a difficult situation and always find a solution. I have a large shop where about 50,000 products, this is the best solution for these volumes. I would recommend this extension! March 17, 2014
    It makes you custemers to come back! It gives for your shop considerbla competitive advantage. I recommend. March 7, 2014
    Really is the Ultimate Search Extension We are in the process of building our Magento store from scratch and I had a specific vision and expectations for the search feature of our store and after looking at a bunch of extensions, this one was the cat's meow. Developer was very responsive to questions as well. February 21, 2014
    Simple install, excellent relevance We'd been struggling with the poor native search function and needed a decent alternative. This module installed without hassle and straight away started to yield decent results. Some really nice features are included like the auto-suggest results, the ability to redirect searches to specific landing pages, etc. Results relevance vs. queries was very good and yielded natural-looking results every time. The ability to add search indexes for your content pages is a great addition (it works with the Clever CMS module in case you are using that). In the end, we didn't use this module on our site, but that is more to do with the way our site works than the quality of this module and I'd happily recommend it to anyone. The developers gave us a full refund under their 30 day money back guarantee. To sum up, great module, great support and risk-free to test it out. February 21, 2014
    Worth the Money This extension turns Magento search functionality from mediocre to exceptional. At first, we had some unexpected search results. I wrote an email to the developer, and they had the search parameters modified within 60 minutes. You simply can't expect more than that for any price. February 9, 2014
    Awesome Search Extension! Works great, easy to install, excellent support. Mirasvit helps you adjust the CSS to fit your theme after install - no questions asked. This is the third site I've installed Search Ultimate on. This is a MUST for magento sites! February 4, 2014
    Great Extension - phenomenal features - resource intensive This extension is an easy install and really extends the capabilities of Sphinx. The use of product images in the drop-down is a great added bonus! Razoyo highly recommends this add-on to any merchant wanting to create a 'wow' search experience. We did have to upgrade our DB server resources to accommodate the extra load, but, it was worth it! January 28, 2014
    Best Search Tool ever Amazing and they helped me install it very fast service and works perfect.The best search ever January 21, 2014
    Best Extension , easy to install , Great Support Hi , I was looking for Solr type search for Magento Community edition , by luck I found this extension , I brought it and it is working like a charm, I must say far better than Solr , Their support team is best team to work with , Alaxander , Igor to name some are so intelligent and helpful. I must say the price of this extension is very less if we compare with the usefulness and service of this dedicated team. Highly recommended. Thanks, Mohit www.sysmosystems.com January 11, 2014
