Overly complicated

I can't believe its so hard to make a simple slider. I don't need fancy transitions. I need an image, that I've sized properly, caption, tasteful arrows/bullets and done.

I'm testing free version and slider can't work in full-width!

Works but terrible interface
By , for WP 4.2.2

Free version only used: Finding your way around this is very difficult. It is illogical and very confusing and frustrating, although once discovered it does work. The English is terrible, which doesn't help.

Wow it works, many thanks for the great and quick support.

Well, I'm dirty enough to roll up my sleeves and open a PHP file to change its inside. Anyway it works, many thanks for the great and quick support. This is the second time to cheer for the good job done by you guys.

It's a scam

Don't waste your time downloading and implementing this, you'll be getting fool's gold. It doesn't offer 90% of what it displays in the demos, unless you're willing to pay. It adds a "Go Full version" on basically everything you'll try. Better stick with other sliders.
Even developers who creates free sliders with at least 60% of its features know that good quality free products leads to pro sales.

If you're not willing to pay for Smart Slider, WordPress plugin's directory has plenty of better free sliders. Now I know why it's called Smart slider, smart enough on spamvert. Good job on the transparency, I almost couldn't see it coming.

Call it Less Than Lite

Look, there are a ton of sliders out there. The interface is good, but just be transparent about how little you offer on this particular plugin. Otherwise, just sell the full and don't bother with this. There's so little that you offer in the free version that it's just a complete waste of time.

Fairly Comprehensive and Very Good Support
By , for WP 4.1

I use it the paid version of Smart Slider 2 in conjunction with the Headway theme, because I have very little coding skill but need flexibility in designing our business's website. So I use it not just for sliders but even for text and image layouts, and it works well enough.

There are still a lot of limitations, and you will have to figure out some workarounds, but for someone like myself it's a good enough trade-off. Also, the support staff are very helpful in this regard. They're very willing to help you work things out, debug mistakes, etc.

I guess the only I could think to ask for is more developments to make things built-in going forward (like lightboxes, etc.). But again, I'm happy to do the workarounds for now, what with their support staff so willing to help out anyway.

This is sweet!
