I have been trying out different search plugins. This one is pretty good if you are looking for something that works with minimal configuration and setup. However, if you want to change things (e.g., search logic, excluding specific taxonomies or custom fields, choosing which post types and post statuses to include, the number of results shown per page, add filters, etc.), this is not very extensible (no developer hooks provided) so you would have to hack the core code.
Just want to share my experience for those that have similar or bigger sites than mine. I have over 3000 posts, 25k+ comments and quite a few custom fields. This plugin made the search very slow, too slow IMO, when searching. I'm on a VPS, not shared. Too slow for me but seems like a nice plugin and the plugin author seems to be active with support.
