Awesome SUPPORT Team The extension is a great UX add on to our website's standard review section. We had slight issues with the module at first but thanks to the Aheadworks support team, it was fixed in record time and it is now running great on our site. Aheadworks have never failed to meet our expectations and we have already bought numerous times from them in a short few months! Highly recommended module, even more highly recommended support team December 4, 2014
Very Good, Meets Demo Requirements Works out of the box if you want the functionality seen in the demo. But Magento 1.9 now uses a new template by default, and this template has reviews on the product page in their own tab. This extension does not support tabs by default, even though they are a standard. Luckily support is great and can edit a few files for you to make this work. But to me it would make more sense to just update it to take advantage of tabs in 1.9 - plus all the older versions of templates that, the majority of which I have seen, all use tabs on the product pages.

Not recommended I do not recommend this extension. It is counter intuitive and lowers customer experience. After installation I actually ended up asking them to customise the extension to turn these features off. March 28, 2014
Purchased 2 of aheadworks products. I can't see aheadworks extension tab under config page. March 8, 2012
Bought this extension and here's pros and cons that i notice: Pros: - SEO friendly URL at review - Notification on review Cons: - Confusing display of voting result - Not as promised amp; demo, the review can't display at product detail - There's little decrease on site speed - Litte bug on "display all review" - Share review at facebook is not quoting the review but share the product short details (has this functionality already) Like on below review on ahead works, the support is truly "hit or miss" I purchase ajax add to cart from them which is works and nicely supported, but on this extension the support was very slow and poorly answered (support agent: ekaterina) Really not happy if display on same page feature can't show up because it's the main reason i bought this extension From review below i conclude that this extension is not supported by aheadworks so buyer must prepare to pay additional money for some help from other party March 4, 2012
Advanced Reviews has been updated to v.1.2 and is now compatible with Magento November 4, 2011
I've got quite a few Aheadworks plugins and they're generally pretty good but this one needs some attention. We get constant SPAM robots coming through these reviews all day, I have brought the matter to Aheadworks attention but they didn't bother to reply. Their support is a bit hit and miss like that I'm afraid. December 16, 2010
