I tried version 0.2.6 of this theme. Setup was difficult and confusing, though I did like having the expansive array of customizable options. Perhaps if essential/common options were grouped separately from the fine-tuning options, setup would have been less of an ordeal.
After setup, I immediately noticed very large and obtrusive advertising on every page. I also noticed several unwanted widgets that I could not seem to remove from the footer/sidebar. The real show-stopper was the visibly buggy home page and sidebar. Hovering over the first instance of a repeated featured blog entry teaser causes a third text-only occurrence to flash across the entire window at various vertical positions. And, the sidebar is occasionally replaced with several instances of the word, "Show".
After this, I had seen enough. Time to move on.
