has greate feauters This extensions has some greate feauters, but still has bugs. If you dont have developer experience to solve those issues, i dont suggest this extension, January 4, 2015
Highly Recommended This extension is worth the money. It's also worth the time in setting up Solr. The documentation provided made it somewhat easy to do. The suggestions dropdown is lightening fast. Hau offered a high level of support. He personally integrated the extension into our design and resolved a couple other issues in our Solr config. May 12, 2014
Very powerful module with support that goes beyond expected The module is very powerful, and the configuration options steadily increase with every new version. Hau Danh at Solrbridge is quick to answer questions, post bugfixes and patches and can even go so far as to help with customizations for a very reasonable fee. The close contact and possibility to get help is probably one of the best reasons to buy this excellent module, I can highly recommend it! April 29, 2014
Very good extension and great support This is very good search extension, very fast and accurate search result. Developer support is awesome!! April 1, 2014
Very good extension This is a perfect search extension, very fast and accurate search result. Developer support is awesome!! April 1, 2014
Perfect for my requirements ! This extension is perfect for my requirements ! The developer was exceptional with his service and professionalism - highly recommended ! March 26, 2014
Great extension! This extension have helped our search soo much! And all the help from Hau when there's been some questions or some developing have been amazing! I strongly recommend this searchmodule! March 6, 2014
Very good alternative to Magento Solr Search We had a lot of troubles with the core search function. It never worked properly in the many different languages we have in our installation. Solrbridge Search solved them all. Sure there were some issues getting everything exaclty the way we wanted it but the support was (is) very good. Even a year after buying the extension we get constant updates & free support. All our tickets are solved quickly and even new functionality implement w/o added cost. I can highly recommend this extension. February 4, 2014
Worth waiting for... Despite waiting a couple of times for support, bug fixing and updates, I would recommend this extension to anyone who wants to implement a professional search solution. Because it offers unique functionalities other extensions don't offer. Also the offered support in customisation in functionality and styling makes SOLR Bridge the most scalable and flexible search solotion on the market today. Thumbs up! October 17, 2013
Worst Search I ever had in my life...!!! I was using the Solr-Search-Extension from last 8 months and facing many problems in search. It was worst search I have ever seen in my life. And getting no support from there team, once we have purchased the Extension we never get the response from there team. This extension is useless to me. I have mailed the Developer and tried to contact many times by gmail and by phone. Many of my team members also have tried to contact the Developer but every time disappointed. I personally advice that please donot use this solr-search-extension, if you use it then you will face many problems and you will be mentally disturbed. Then finally we stopped using this extension and wasted our 450.00 Euro. Mangento Basic search is better than Solr-Search-Extension. September 13, 2013

Is it easy to make this extension work with my custom theme?

I am mainly concerned with knowing if this extension can truly integrate with my setup. Do you offer a trial? If not, is there some way I can send my products so you can set up a sample search for me? I find the extension to be a bit pricy for just testing it and later finding it didn't work with my store.

Hi Solr team,
I have used your extension on my site 4 days ago.
but I noticed your extension was using "count" of the attributes for the sort.

I want to use default "position" sort on your extension.

Can you help the feature?
