Excellent Slider

It’s fairly easy to use. Straight forward settings with a few moments of wondering how to make something work.
The support for this plugin is very good.
I highly recommend it.

Plugin con muchas opciones y características, muchas gracias.

Very Good Slider

It’s a bit hard to set it up if you do have other plugins, but it’s a good one.
I would have questions about how to proper fit the images, because so far, we haven’t been able to make them look right. But I do not despair 🙂

Awesome Slider

This slider plugin changed the look of my website. Nice work there and I think the 3D effect doesn’t work on IE so the plugin is handling that by some fall-back which is really good.

Also the plugin developers provide really good support. Thanks

Live Preview on Admin Panel is Good

There are many features in this slider plugin including a live preview panel with full control. I customized the complete slider on settings page and once satisfied with the preview, then pasted the shortcode on front-end.

Fully satisfied with this 3D slider.
