Throws a ton of notices and errors in the back-end. Didn't test front end as removed after noticing the errors.

'Sneak' Premium is false advertising
By , for WP 3.8.1

Nowhere on the WP plugin pages do you state that there is a Premium version. But you write "Tons of configuration options. Checkout the screenshots." The screenshot shows that there are options for Pager, Controls, Auto and Carousel - but not that those are only available if you pay for the Premium version. This is false advertising, and for that reason I had to uninstall, give you this review, and recommend that others check out "bxSlider integration for WordPress" plugin as an alternative; while not as user-friendly, at least "bxSlider integration for WordPress" gives us access to all of bxSlider's MANY excellent options, albeit if only through the use of custom shortcodes. I'm sure that your Premium version is very nice indeed, but you should be more clear about what the basic version includes, and should have a way - such as through shortcodes if not through your nice GUI - for utilizing all of bxSlider's options, even in the basic version. Reserve the nice GUI integration of all features for the Premium version, sure, but don't cripple the basic version.
