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%.

What a great team over at Mirasvit! We reviewed many search options and this has proven to be the most powerful for the money. The team at Mirasvit also provided awesome support. August 15, 2014
Must have If you are serious about your store, this is a must have extension. Awesome support. July 17, 2014
Best search extension out there I have tried serveral search extensions with both internal as external engines. This search extension was cheap compared to external services you pay monthly, but I found this to be of better quality. I had some questions on installation, and the support handled my questions fast and good. I bought some other Mirasvit extensions and the support is always great. July 4, 2014
The best search extension for Magento Search no more! :) Flexible. Stable. Reliable. I am 100 % satisfied. They also provide excellent and fast support (live chat). If you are in doubt, I have installed over 30 modules in the past for various Magento installations and versions. This module comes without headaches! July 2, 2014
Works as expected Product works as expected, search results are now relevant and better than what magento provides out of the box. June 23, 2014
Super Super extension and also super install and problem support. June 18, 2014
Sphinx search is good, Mirasvit service is even better Alex and the team at Mirasvit make me start to believe the secret of any great successful business centres around the support and service offered to customers, if you are looking for a search plugin, Sphinx search is probably one of the most leading technologies to deploy for consistently accurate results for your website users, although Sphinx is in it's nature open source, therefore free to use, you require a well written and supported interface to be able to fully utilise the full functionality of the search engine, unless you develop one yourself (costly for sole use) than its better to use a plugin made for commercial use from one of the many search plugin devs. My choice was based on a combination of features, user interface, but most important of all to me was the support and aftercare provided by the dev team behind the plugin. Micrasvit have not failed to impress with their proactive support with installation issues which have arisen, Alex and his team have fixed whichever problem has arisen in a speedy and professional way, which I can only describe as a 5 star service. If you relish superior levels of support and customer serivce, than your decision is very easy...buy Mirasvit Plugins....You will not be disappointed. June 10, 2014
Perfect! This is an awesome extension to complement any Magento site! Technical support was quick to answer any and all of our questions without hesitation and got it working on palletforks.com in no time! My boss is pleased, so I'm pleased! We're all pleased! May 22, 2014
Great Extension It works as described and they installed it with minimal hiccups. April 9, 2014
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

Our current plugin for search, query multiple databases every time it search or display ajax auto complete. If DB cache the queries, then this process took 3-4 seconds. But if query is not cached on db, this can take around 20+ seconds, which is unacceptable (We have around 50,000+ products). Will your extension face the same issue or do you cache data or index data somehow to make it faster? Thank you

Our extension not perform mysql queries for search. Extension use sphinx engine (average search time for 50k ~ 0.1 sec)
Also our autocomplete extension use internal cache system (response time for cached queries < 0.2 sec)

* native magento search perform mysql queries for search, but cache results (cache located in db table catalogsearch_results)
