The feature that sold me on this theme was the responsive slider. While it doesn't have a huge array of options by default for the slider, with a small bit of tweaking I was able to get this doing exactly what I wanted. The theme is clean and well-programmed, and it is a great platform to do what you want.
Far too many themes try to do too much, and become a sort of jack-of-all-trades-but-master-of-none. This does what it does, and it does it extremely well with the responsive coding working perfectly for me. The simplicity means that I can take it and do what I want with it. Great stuff.
