Sphinx Search Ultimate is a Magento extension that combines the most modern approaches to the product search for online stores. Here you'll find all you need in order to create an ideal product search in your online store.
Often users do not know exactly how to spell the name of a particular product. Search tips help greatly to quickly find the right product. When a user types the first few letters of a search phrase, a tip phrase drops down and the user sees a list of search phrases or goods from a catalog that best match the products he wants to find.
In case a user made a mistake in writing a search query, we will not show nil results. We are trying to fix the problem and show them what they were looking for.
The search mechanism uses the advanced search technology Sphinx, which provides a highly relevant results in a fraction of a second. Sphinx is an open source search engine that significantly improves the relevance (quality) and the speed of searches. Therefore, your visitors find the products they are looking for. Using a Sphinx search engine increases conversion of visitors who are looking for something to customers by more than 50%.
Greatly improves search quality. Searches find the products that visitors are looking for
Supports stop words (dictionary contains 665 words)
We prefer to purchase extensions from vendors we have had great support from in the past, and having used Mirasvit Sphinx Search in our M1 store with impressive results, it was a no brainer to use them again for our M2 store. Their support and pre-sales response is A1.
Great extension. The thing we love about the "Sphinx Search Ultimate" is, we have option to give weightage to product attributes. So we can remove attributes such as product desctiption and give more weightage to attributes such as Brand, Model No, Product Type etc and this will show the extact products as results.
Max from Eindhoven, Netherlands
Does exactly what you need as store owner. Search gives us good conversion rates.
This extension solve the issue of finding the product through search, there are so many customer who makes the mistakes in writing the product spelling and this extensions comes out as a savior. We cannot thank you enough to the Mirasvit developers for this extension.
i tried many search engine before but none was meeting my requirements until we found out SPHINX. very pro and compatible with my products naming and info. finally, my problem is fixed now! THANK YOU SPHINX!
Very good extension
Flavius from Giroc, Romania
The search bar works very well, I am pleased with the purchase. My only recommendation would be, that under search results in the search bar, to be shown the categories (with link).
Has been working flawlessly for a couple of years now. So far I have achieved the most thorough search results with this extension compared to others on the market. Especially the auto correction and did you mean ... works better here.
We are very happy with this search. I would buy it every time if i set up an Magento 1 shop.
Worth the money
IT from Slovak Republic
Good plugin and fantastic support
Great Search function
SteveJ from Canada
Well worth the money. They helped configuring it all to. Thx. Highly recommneded
SUPPORT IS THE REAL MVP
Zaniboni from United States
Great Module, they even helped me with some conflicts
It makes the search in Magento smarter
Igor from Russia
The search became intuitive and human-friendly and, of course, much-much better than the native (and stupid) Magento search. Some set-up issues are inevitable when dealing with such powerful machine, but Support Stuff readily help to resolve them.
мені здається, я ним користувався навіть більше, ніж клієнти. Мега-зручна і швидка штука. Можна легко правити налаштування. Правда, як і з Full Page Cache був змушений просити допомоги з налаштуваннями у саппорта (але дякую хлопцям - допомогли оперативно).
I was initially on a fence, because there are so many search extensions in the market. Then there was the question of should I get this one, or the lower variants by Mirasvit (search pro etc). I bought this one, and wow, am I glad I did that! This extension has fantastic level of options, and despite such a huge extension, it installed like a piece of pie. The kind of difference it makes to search, leads me to suspect some magic at work in the backend :) The system automatically corrects my most common misspellings, and I had fun trying to see how much it can correct. Very Very pleased!
Easy to install. Great Support. What's not to like?
Best search results in the shop
Yasin from Germany
I've been looking for solutions for my search results. There were hardly any results in the shop, which of course greatly reduced my charges.
By very good help and recommendations, I bought this extension and you find what mach searches. There are a lot of settings which are super easy to understand.
It is the best I have found, highly recommended. Thank you
Excellent addition to our website
Michael from St Louis, United States
Magento's built in search function sucks donkey balls. Sphinx search was exactly what we needed. It's very responsive and very accurate. I highly recommend it.
I researched a number of different search plugins and this was by far was the most fully featured. Rather than programming their own from scratch, they have harnessed the sophistication of Sphinx which is heavily optimized and fully featured. A great upgrade to the default search.
We purchased Sphinx Search Ultimate extension for our online store. With this extension, our search became very fast and giving very relevant results.
We have faced so many issues with Magento built-in search as our catalog size is more than 20k. Mirasavit Team has done a great job by writing this extension based on the open source search engine Sphinx.
And the support was awesome when I encounter some issues with installing and configuring the extension.
More extensions on their way!
We tried some other automatic search tools for categories and products display but this one has ALL what we need. And all our custom made modification according to our demand were done with no extra pay. If we would have to chose only one magento addon this is the winner.
The module has a very fine tuning which allows you to find the exact elements accurately and without errors.
This is a really working thing, it's a pity that most sites do not have this functionality. I recommend!
I recently installed this on my community 1.9 magento install and it works a treat. The search is very accurate and easy to configure, the dropdown works nicely for results and overall it was so simple to set up, i don't know why i didn't do it sooner.
Always a pleasure to work with
ben from Israel
Like the other 3 products I've purchased, this one was working very well from the get go. We later needed some fixing, and the customer service on this is amazing. My first stop when it comes to a new extension!
An excellent product that works really well. and the support is out of this world.
Emile from Haarlem, Netherlands
A great extension that needed some modifications to work properly because of another extension that made some changes. They made the modifications for me so the extension worked well. Great company, great support!
The module has a very fine tuning which allows you to find the exact elements accurately and without errors.
This is a really working thing, it's a pity that most sites do not have this functionality. I recommend!
The sphinks search ultimate extension comes up with a lot of configuration possibilities. However if you install it without any confirguration you will immediately see a massive improvement in regards to the normal Magento search results! Documentation is very good too. Very happy with this extension!
By now probably everyone knows that default search in magento is virtually useless. So in order to get results that are actually helpful for customers we need something more. I had been using blast lucene which provided decent results but there seemed to be some bug and support was simply not available.
Someone recommended sphinx search so I gave it a try. Plus I was desperate to get search working on my site again. One downside is there is no default out of the box configuration so simply installing doesn't really do anything for you. But after you take a few minutes to create the searches according to their user manual, the search results are excellent. AND indexing is fast. My previous search solution literally took almost one full our just to reindex. With sphinx search, I'm not only getting smarter search results (like recommended alternate search when query doesnt match) I'm also displaying better features like category search which is sometimes 100%.
There are only 2 things that I think a small issues that if changed would give it the ultimate positive review for me.
1) during install, create all default searches automatically according to your user manual
2) when searching and category is part of search result, make it more appealing somehow for customer to click on. If there is only a single category. Instead of having to click the category tab and then click the category link, the tab should just load the category page immediately.
Honestly though these are mostly small issues and I definitely recommend sphinx search for any store. It's a must have.
Let me start off with saying i got best tech support from alex, originally extension was not working correctly , alex went extra step did the research and found out my developer had put some customized codes that were messing with the extension. He fixed my issue made the extension work, Went back and forth many times to help with all the features and set them up for me. I had one of the best experience with these guys best customer service. I will definitely recommend this extension. Thank You alex
Brilliant Extension, Best support on Magento Extension ever received!
Robert from Gloucester, United Kingdom
I have been trying out a few search modules to improve the poor default Magento search.
Purchased, installed and worked straight out the box and we have many modules installed, it has a check feature so once installed, click this and it tells you if any conflicts etc.
I requested by ticket a change to align the new search box with our own, it was only a few pixels out - this was done with 30 minutes of ticket raised with full email communication throughout and also gave advice on auto-complete and auto spell check.
We used Category Meta keywords field as high level check for search, this also made us clean our category keywords and for 1200 sku's took 1 hour. You can then also state, look in this field fisrt, then sort on a lesser field. This was so easy to configure.
We know have perfect search results for our customers which will help with our bounce rate when search was used before. A MUST HAVE!
10/10 for extension use and support. I will recommend this to all my fellow Magento users.
Over a year with default for fun search, we have to improve this features, after a tons of research we decided to go with features Mirasvit Search Ultimate to keep our customer. It is fast and correct results.
Feature rich extension with reliable and client oriented support
Alexander from Moscow, Russia
We are using this extension for several moths and have only positive expierience. We're using custom theme and dedicated server for database. Developers helped us with all questions and made some customization to suite our needs.
Such a great extension.. Easy to install and configure.
The best Magento search engine
Fanny from France
We just love it. After testing several solutions, this one is the best, on the server side and on the Magento side. It's now our standard solution each time we work on big catalogs and/or projects that require an efficient search !
Functioneaza foarte bine chiar si pentru limba romana.
Very good search engine
Maciej from Gdańsk, Poland
After using it for some time I can say that this extension is very helpful. Customers are use the search function more than before. The results are exactly what we wanted them to be. Support was also great with fixing some problems very quickly.
So far the extension is very powerful and clean looking to the site. It has great configuration and the usual awesome Mirisvit support. At times it seems slow and sluggish and so hopefully Mirisvit can add some speed improvements so it is as fast as its competitors.
The extension works great. It does take some monitoring to edit and configure search results based on your stores specific items. For best results, monitor what users search for, then test yourself to see what the results are. Then, configure the extension to generate the results you like.
I have to say this extension does a great job from the get go ! If you are looking for perfection in search results though, you will need some monitoring and tweaking.
Sander from Kaatsheuvel, Netherlands
After installation an little problem, support has fixed the problem within 15 minutes. The extesion works really good after
Hello visitors, give up searching for Supplier of Sphinx search module, this module Mirasvit is the best available for Magento. After we tried several others, we stopped at Mirasvit no doubt this is the best and most complete module for this purpose available for Magento. We are Customer Mirasvit from 2 years ago. Congratulations, Mirasvit is excellent.
This extension has provided very much needed search options to Magento, including autocorrection for search terms, very fast AJAX results returned, and indexing all the product fields. The styling for the search area is quite aesthetic as delivered, we did not have to change it at all. Very highly recommended.
We have a 2000 visitor per day store with a lot of different products. And this was extremely easy to install and once I had the search up and running it saved a lot of lost traffic due to people not finding what they were looking for.
The search synonym function is extremely handy and also the ability to redirect certain keywords to a landing page is UNREAL I can run promotions through it and also add new mispellings whenever I have to.
Very good. A+ From me
Søren from Copenhagen, Denmark
This extension is great. It's also fast, but relies on how fast your site is.
So unfortunately my search function is a bit slow, and it is something that we have to work with.
Sean from Colchester, United Kingdom
If you only buy one addon for Magento make it this one!!!!
Most ecom web sites are let down horribly by the search facility on their web site, tgis one works and works great!
Truly the ULTIMATE search
Elliot from Stourbridge, United Kingdom
Utterly brilliant extension. The search facility of our site is now our most valued asset.
I bought this extension recently and it works great! I still can't believe some of the the big retailers out there are still using the default Magento search engine. I.e. my competition! I can't stop playing with the search on my website... and then comparing it with theirs! so cool! Support was awesome, friendly and very helpful. They tweaked my install for me free of charge. I have also bought another extension from this team and both extensions scream quality! Very happy with both purchases.. and will be back for more! Thanks Mirasvit.
I have been extremely impressed with this extension. What I didn't realise is that you don't have to install Sphinx separately if you don't want to, it comes with it's own so installation is just a matter of copying the files and a few minutes of configuration. Working perfectly on Magento 1.9 and has definitely improved our conversion rate! Highly recommended!
Acurate and extreemly flexible search extension that every store owner needs!
Jay from Montreal, Canada
I can't say enough good things about Mirasvit and there extensions. This one is no exception, I know it sounds like an advertisement but this extension was a drop in and returned relevant searches immediately. Has some nice features like being able to search by the magento product ID as I use this in my front end for my customers to easily identify products.
Another great feature is as you being to type, search results are anticipated and being to display, fantastic product, highly recommended.
I should also note I purchased this after using multiple free extensions (even SOLR free extension) and this is faster, more accurate and the easiest to setup.
Improved the search results massively! Way better than the default Magento search and a must-have extension for every webshop!
The best search extension !
Ariel from Barcelona, Spain
Sphinx Search Ultimate is essential for any professional store. The best search extension we found.
Professional and highly available technical support, which will solve all problems. I recommend to everyone this application and in general the group Mirasvit.
Easy to use and powerful alternative search engine for Magento
Paras from Stanmore, United Kingdom
We have implemented the Sphinx Ultimate Search extension for 2 clients and will be using it for more clients in the future. Recommended extension & supplier.
Easy to install, needed a little help from tech support but they were very fast and fixed the problem straight away. Our conversion rate has gone up without any major work and we are now able to make improvements to our search as an when needed
I found that the standard Magento search was not providing the results for my searches that I expected, so after a number of different tests and trials, I settled upon SSU, which was not only simple to install, but also easy to configure and provided me the results that I was expecting.
There's nothing better!
Bogdan from Slovenia
This extension is great! Everything works well ... And our useras have powerfull searh on site.
Bought this extentiion and it function right out of the box
Awesome search extension
Anuj from Batala, India
I really like the working of this extension.
A must for Magento stores
Milosz from East Rutherford, United States
Community edition of Magento by default does not have a great search engine built in. This extension makes customers experience very easy and shows perfect matching for what the customer types into the search bar. Couldn't be more happier.
Usually I don'like to post reviews...becouse of I have no time to do them...
but in this case I have to do it because of the excellent support they give to me
I had an issue with this extension due to other plugins conflict and the support team solved immediately. Now all is working in the right way!
Love this extension, by far the best search extension on the market within the price range.Really easy to customise with CSS as well. Thanks!!
Josh from St. Augustine, United States
We were needing an improvement from our current monthly subscription we were paying for our search. We found this ext which is a one time fee and not only are amazed by the savings but the functionality as well, way better then the competition! Highly recommended, sales have increased:-)!!!
Really cool extension for Magento. Highly recommended!
The best search engine ever
Rikke from Odense, Denmark
We have been using this extension for a little more than a half year. It works great and our customers love it.
The best dollars ever spent on Magento
Yang from Xi'an, China
This is the best dollars I think I ever spent on Magento. The search function of my store gets infinitely better with this extension, just like Google for my site. The support has also been very helpful and to the point. Definitely going to order another extension. I just can't get enough!
Versatile application and rich customization. Understood the encoding mechanisms of terms you can create any type of search you want and bring the product to the customer required. It improves the visit to this site and motivates people to buy into what you, finding the products sought, come easily pushed to the conversion.
Impeccable, professional and highly available technical support, which will solve all problems, even those not related to the extension! Hesitant at first, for my not understanding the application, has been able to direct me to the right understanding, having too much patience with my questions. Once you understand how to work, I was able to create me the various rules for the correct reproduction of the research, all the while aided and advised by the group.
Finally I recommend to everyone this application and in general the group Mirasvit, for how they do their work and for the quality of products.
Very powerful search tool and good support from Mirasvit
Sylvestre from Bailly-Romainvilliers, France
Hi, we have installed the extension on 1.9.2 Magento, and we have not discovered all functions. The tool enables you to add search capabilities to additional modules (we have Blog Pro, now Sphinx also searches on our blog pro pages). We required support from the team and they were always there to give you hint and unlock a situation. Bravo!
This extension is loaded with a lot of features and we love it. It seamlessly integrates with the website but has the ability to mimic other popular site searches. Love the ability to control the weight of each search, how it shows up and much more. Highly recommend if you want simple, fast and accurate searches like the big guys.
Mirasvit's Sphinx Search Ultimate is the best search extension there is without any doubt. The search is both faster and more relevant improving the overall satisfaction of our customers. The documentation is pretty extensive and the support is the best. Enuff Said!
After Mirasvit did some customization to already best magento search, I'm completely satisfied with search results. Most important thing was implementing scroll window for search results, so cusomers can now see also items not on stock that are sorted on bottom. Only thing I still miss in SSU is search history, so customers could only click for prevoious searches. Hopefully this will be implemented in following releases.
They are 2 reasons I install this module on my stores
1 - search is much more relevant. I can configurate the index with the list of attributs I wish, and (best tool) with ponderation. The results on a search are always accurate.
2 - I can add several indexes to the search. On marketplace, we have list of seller that we can add to the index. On other store we have blogs that we can add to the index. We can easily create an index with our own custom object type. For better user experience.
Autosuggestion is also a great tool, but with less impact on our clients, so I can disable it.
Thank you for your great work! This extension is a must have for every Magento installation. This extension gives you an awesome spell correction, very fast indexing, fast support and much more. It just extremely improves your search quality.
Very happy with this extension
stefanos from Aalborg, Denmark
I basically just needed my magento so show better search result, but got so much more with this extension. Actually features, that i had not thought i needed, but that my customers apreciate!
I just wish there were more extensions that were equally rewarding to use
We are using this extension for over a year now and it is reliable and working great. Support is great too, when requesting to index articles from a third-party extension it was implemented quickly. Highly recommended!
We tried other extensions before landing with Mirasvit. The difference is incredible. The other search extension made by Amasty was never accurate and consistently slow. Whereas this extension is highly accurate and fast. It seems to always get the search correct no matter what you type. We highly recommend it!
This extensions has changed how my site operates, I have a catalog of over 800K products, and my typical search results were shoppping 1000's of result on each search, this pluggin has changed all that, right out of the box it has reduced the results.
A/B testing has shown that with the old standard search, I was getting over 5000 results back 90% of which were not relevant, with the pluggin im down to 25 and each are highly relevant. I now dont use the back end of the site to look for products like before, i simply search on the website :-)
Fantastic product. Our conversions on our site have increased since we have installed this extension. Our employees now use front end to search for products since it provides better results then the back end.
The product works as described and is 100X better then the out of the box Magento search. The customer service answered my questions and helped me with the installation. It was all great!
beautiful search, accurate, fast, worth it
Jesse from Halifax, Canada
The search software installed as described, easily. I had one question about php exec and why it was necessary. The Mirasvit support team answered my question immediately. Great software, worth every penney.
We struggled for some time to find a search function that did our website justice. Magento default was .... well embarrassing and others weren't up to the job. I'm now extremely pleased with our choice of the Mirasvit search function.
Using heatmap on our site, we found that the customer were using the search function. The standard search was no where near good enough so I looked for a suitable search system. This search package was simply the best and now we are continuously refining the search. We do this by checking the search term and redirecting them to the right place using the tool available with the package. Overall a much better conversion.
What more do you need from a search engine, compared with the bog standard magento search we have increased conversions by 18% after using this extensions for 3 months solid. Well done and thank you Mirasvit a credit to the Magento community.
MultipleMangentoStoreOwner from Dubai, United Arab Emirates
I have tried various options, and of everything we tested, nothing came close to the mirasvit search extension. We use it on all our stores and no other extension.
I recommend Mirasvit to also add the google merchant centre integration for product feed export API. Then this product will be absolutely and truly unbeatable.
This is the best search product in the market till now.
I haven't seen support like them. These guys support is outstanding.
It is the best investment for every store. These guys will give 1 year of free updates which is a plus point for getting the extension.
This extension is a perfect replacement for the Magento Search which is slow and provides useless results. The Sphinx based engine on this module helps provide intelligent results, ability to search across multiple entities (not just products) and helps in conversions as we can rank attributes and control our search results. Have installed this for many of our client websites and have always received a positive feedback from them on this. Will continue to use this product on all future Magento sites.
We were very excited to find this extension! It is extremely well thought out and combines features from several other extensions all into one powerful search that has numerous options that can be customized! We found support to be quick and very ready to help with any concern we had in installation and we were left pleased all around!
it does what you expect... easy install and configure. some minor problem with sphinx log.
The power of Sphinx combined with every possible search configuration!
Nicolas from Laval, Canada
From its speed, ajusting the relevence by weight to the spell correction and suggestions, this extension has everything anyone could ask from a search engine! It works with different languages plus the design is well built and easy to ajust as needed! We are using the built in Sphinx engine and I adore that it offers the possibility to connect to an external Sphinx server. This way there is no need to wonder about the future, in case the server is receiving heavy search traffic, it is always possible to distribute the search queries against an other system. I wouldn't enumerate all the pros here as there is so many!
brilliant search module, i think it is the best solution in magento marketplace
guang from Guangzhou, China
awesome search module, no need separate sphinx server, support multi store view price. thanks for your customization, excellent support.
altdev from Thousand Oaks, United States
This extension is very well written and runs fast on a dedicated server. The default Magento search is terrible. With just the default options on this extension, the search results instantly became 10x better. There are also many options for tweaking the search results, but we haven't tried them yet.
In the past we tried some other services which operated in the cloud. This extension blows them out of the water. A must have extension that should have been in Magento by default.
This extension is build by 3 extensions. Search optimalisation, spell check and autocomplete. This extension is really a must for everyone because it has a really good spell check and it shows the best sold products in your selection. Test it yourself! It is great!
Anyone who has worked with magento for any amount of time can vouch that Magento is TERRIBLE for their search function. Once you get this installed and working right your search results will be much more useful and fast!
Just started using it. Had few problems after installation, but the support team of Mirasvit fixed them straight away. Although yet to do some advanced test, however, so far like the sort of search results it brings.
Contrary to Magento Search, this extension really works. Then consider just regex tuning options, synonyms, CMS search, and search preview combined with extraordinary support and Sphinx Search Ultimate is a must have.
one of the best search extension
ethan from Savannah, United States
magento's search is known for being horrible. I did a lot of research on this subject before coming to this solution. I tried other extension but nowhere near as configurable as this one. Im working on getting a dedicated server setup so I can actually install the external sphinx. even though its still good for now.
The best endorsement I can give this module is that I turn to it for every high-volume magento installation. From 10,000 skus to 250,000 skus I've seen it work wonders with fast ajax response and excellent indexing times. Makes my customers happy, as their customers get a great search experience.
This search worked perfectly, I had to play around with the css to have it responsively fit on my website. But the functionality is flawless and I love that it is integrated and doesn't have a monthly fee.
Setup was simple and after several hours of tweaking, I've gotten the extension to perform exactly as I wanted. Allows search of CMS pages & Blog Posts which is all I really needed but I got much more than that. Mirasvit was also quick to answer a question I had and made sure that the results worked for me. Thanks Mirasvit!
J from Hampstead, United Kingdom
It really works well. The AJAX request is efficient and visitors can get quick relevant results. Extension certainly worth it to make Magento search better
Magento's built in search is not really usable - this extension fixes that problem! The built-in Sphinx search seems fast enough for stores with 2000 or less products, so don't bother setting up your own Sphinx engine until you've tried the built in one.
I'm really liked the technical support. I quickly got the answers on my questions. And specialist quickly helped to solve and correct problems with the extensions. Thank you very much!
Gerry from Blanchardstown, Ireland
Needed a little configuration that the guys in support were happy to help with. Looks great and has defiantly increased sales
100% great extension and highly recommended
Asrar from Wembley, United Kingdom
Well, I was evaluating many extensions of its kind but this one beats all of them. The extension features what it exactly says in the description. there was a slight issue initially with the search, but after opening a ticket, the issue was resloved in 30 mins!!!
Really recommend this one to any store which are looking to improve search funtionality.
Forbikes from Fara in Sabina, Italy
Fantastic product, is very useful and powerful. Very very advised. The best that you can found on internet.
Produce Good Search Results
Eddie from Karimnagar, India
Excellent Performance. I strongly recommend this must have search extension for your stores.
My developers suggested this extension. I gave them the green light. The search facility has improved 101%. No more complaints from irate customers.
I was told that support too was great.
Works great on 1.9. thumbs up.
Great Search Module
Mike from Hedensted, Denmark
This is really a good Magento Search Module, it improves on the time taken for search results to show and very fast. Great one.
A review after using this for a year...
alex from Moscow, Russia
The default search of magento just sucks (oops)... This module make wonders! The search became a really useful feature on the web-site. It's fast and accurate. It doesn't highly load the whole server (as the default search do) because it use it's own demon, a really good one.
Congrats to developers. You created a monster (a genius thing)!
really good! we use it on our main production site
Perfect solution for magento search
Scott from Glendalough, Australia
I'm very happy with this search extension, it's the perfect solution to fix magento's poor search performance. I tried alot of paid and free extensions before sticking with this one about 18months ago.
This does everything it is supposed to. Very happy with it. Only strange thing was that it was offering "related search terms" which were not based on my database, so we disabled that function.
Kristi from Shawnee, United States
This is a very well thought out extension and works beautifully on our site. Our customers love how the products and their images start to display as they are typing and they can find what they need without even going to the search page.
Its a great search tool and the support is really great and fast too.
Makes Search Awesome
David from United States
I love this extension. While showing my client the default search in Magento, they were very unimpressed. After installing and showing off Sphinx Search Ulitimate, they were blown away with the great results. Thanks for the great extension.
david from United States
the search is accurate and super fast
Cagatay from United States
This is a must have extension for every store. Well worth the money. Nice work guys!
TOP product and service
P from United States
All I can say top product and the best service. We tried some other tools and also searched for solutions over freelancers but this was by far the best (great service, product, ..) for the price paid. It has all and more what we demand.
If we need some other extensions this will be the first place where we will look for.
evilknevil10 from United States
Great Extension. Fast support. Excellent search for our store

Thank you guys for a great work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great extension. Increased relevance, speed, and quality of searches
Ranvir from United States
I've just had a chance to test the extension after installation of Sphinx Search Ultimate with the Sphinx Search installed externally and it is just what I wanted. Its a must have extension, the default magento search for community is terrible and this extension has optimised the search and its speed. In my opinion this is the best search extension available for magento. Thank you guys!
Very good service
AccuShop.at from United States
Works as promised, some finetuning hat to be done, but after that it works very well. Support is excellent, very fast and helpful. Also bought installation service, after a few hours everything worked even though I've a custom design and a lot of other 3rd party extensions. Had some issues with search results at first, but support logged in and did some attribute weighting and stop words and after that it was perfect.
Pasquale from United States
Sphinx Search Ultimate works as described, easy to install, it improves search of your store. Good support, I had a little template conflict and they solved it immediatly.

This extension works brilliantly and is hugely better than the default search on magento with plenty of customisation options.
The developers are especially helpful in sorting out any little quirks even when the support period is expired
Lisa from United States
We had an very horrible search system on Magento Community 1.7 edition. This was installed and finds everything relevant!!!
Great Support. 100%satisfied
Ariel from United States
Thanks you Alexey.
Your support and attention are very professional.
Extension works fine, we had no problems.
Highly recommend this developer!
David from United States
Extension works fine, we had no problems. And the search-results are way better than the default magento-search. We had some little questions in advance which the support-team always answered very quickly and good. Highly recommended!
Great Support and an execellent extension.
Steve from United States
Support is one of the best thus far. The extension is easy to configure and the documentation is the better than most. We use sphinx on a remote server and the setup was painless and easy.
Great extension and support!!!
Albert from United States
Superb extension and support.
Really nice experience with support team and the extension works like a charm. Very collaborative, helpful and professional.
The guys have installed several copies of this module to various client sites for us. Every time it works perfectly and the guys go above and beyond the support remit. Highly recommend the installation service as it allows the Mirasvit chaps to crack on and get everything spot on!
Jerry from United States
Very good! fast respons, great extension, good service! highly recommended!
Ariel from United States
Great Alex... your help and support in the installation went very well.
Very prompt and accurate service.
Pooraan from United States
Very prompt and accurate service, we will surely recommend others to mirasvit.com
Dave from United States
This extension is very fast and customizable, and the results are miles better than the Magento default. Allows great control over results and put out of stock items last in results. Also wordpress and cms search is a great plus as we use wordpress integrated with our store.
Another Amazing Mirasvit Extension
Scott from United States
Fantastic! Switched from Better Store Search to this. Great results: blog, products, categories, cms... what more could you ask for? Individual indexes for each. Configurable weighting to get the results you want for your customers. Show out of stock products last. Come on. There is nothing missing here.
Ronak from United States
I have never come across any company that provides just an excellent support to its customers. This plugin is excellent and I have seen an increase in conversions after installing it. Customers can now find the right product within seconds. They even helped me with all the installation and customization for free. I will buy all my plugins from Mirasvit.
If you want to see the plugin first hand visit www.thecosmicbyte.com
Keep it up!!!
Evan from United States
Great extension and install service. I would highly recommend.
Excellent Extension and Support
brady from United States
Do not hesitate to buy extensions from Mirasvit. I have 2 extensions and both are Top Notch in function and design. I also consider Customer support from any company making software and Mirasvit is seriously one of the best. In particular this Sphinx Search ext is just great. Simple install and great frontend option set.
Awesome Search Extension!
ahillcis from United States
I've used Mirasvit extensions on three of my websites. I always get a quick response and excellent support from Alexander. Highly recommend this developer!
Works great, easy to install, excellent support. Mirasvit helps you adjust the CSS to fit your theme after install - no questions asked. This is the third site I've installed Search Ultimate on. This is a MUST for magento sites!
Great Extension - phenomenal features - resource intensive
razoyo from United States
This extension is an easy install and really extends the capabilities of Sphinx. The use of product images in the drop-down is a great added bonus!
Razoyo highly recommends this add-on to any merchant wanting to create a 'wow' search experience.
We did have to upgrade our DB server resources to accommodate the extra load, but, it was worth it!
seeking and finding
Franky from United States
Setup was very quick and easy. We needed so far no help from support. Highly recommended extension for your shop. Seeking and finding ... That's it.
Great extension& Service
Martin from United States
Great Company - second installation of this extension I loved it so much the first installation.
probably the best search extension!
embio.it from United States
I tried some of them but mirasvit did really the best job in my opinion! can only recommend it!
it's fast and reliable! also they are very quick on implementing new feature requests! (the tag prioritizing was my idea!)
personally I',m just missing two more features then it's perfect!
- auto proposal (not auto-completion) of the most probable search term after having inserted the first word (not sooo important)
- export and import of the sometimes very complex settings when you want to update the extension (saving all the settings in a pdf would also help to restore them after havin updated the extension)
anyway one of the best extension providers AND support teams! I can tell you because working with at least 8 different extension providers!
this has to be said here..
Great but can be improve!
Ahamed from United States
I wish this extension could have >>> did you mean feature on the suggestive search as well. Like if you type samsong it should show on suggestive drop down samsung. so we do not need to enter or press submit button to see samsung on the next page.
Best Search Tool ever
patgodfath from United States
Amazing and they helped me install it very fast service and works perfect.The best search ever
Mr from United States
This extension is a must for any store and the support we have received has been top notch. Highly recommended!
Outstanding extension and service
Martin from United States
It was a pretty non standard install in my case and it required extra work. The way mirasvit team implemented it for me blew me away - I have never had a company go to such lengths to compete the job. Amazing!
The best extension by far, amazing support
Jose from United States
This is a very powerful extension, fast, very good just as the support. The only thing I would like to suggest is to have a way to choose the order of the search, for example, product name, then short description, SKU, description, etc.. Thank you and happy 2014!
Great extension - Best Support
sfcdelivery777 from United States
I purchased this product, installed it in a matter of minutes(with a few minor challenges along the way---mostly my configuration issues), and then asked the support to change some css files to match my theme, and it is working as expected. Easy to install, and works as advertised!
Davide from United States
Sphinx Search Ultimate is, by us, the best Search Magento module.
For a very competitive price you can benefit of an extension that has all what you need for leverage the important functionality of the catalogue search.
Great Value, Great Search Results
Robert from United States
We bought this extension since the Magento native search is horrible and after trying other services that offer enhanced search ability but at a fairly stiff monthly fee like between $800 and $1500/month. This extension works well and we're very happy with it. The Mirasvit support is also excellent. They respond timely since we had a few issues in the beginning but they were quickly rectified. We've bought other extensions from this company and have been very pleased with the extensions and the support. I highly recommended this extension AND this company. Hope they make more extensions in the future!
Best search extension for Magento
Jan-Christoph from United States
mirasvit's Sphinx Search Ultimate is definitely the best search extension available for Magento.
Search results improved dramatically, and the ability to use a Sphinx Search server and to control it within the Magento admin panel works like a charm.
Technical support by mirasvit has been excellent, too.
Ramon from United States
This search engine works as promised and showed in the demo. Support exceed the already high expectations. Highly recommended!
At last a lightweight full-featured search engine for Magento!!!
Marcos from United States
I've just tested this extension and I must tell you my friends that it's light on server resources. Previously I tried the famous Solr but it sucked resources from my poor man's VPS. I tuned Magento to help save on VPS expenses but the search engine turned out to be the resource hog. Other implementations of the Sphinx Search Engine were out of the question because they were not powerful enough.
Thank you Mirasvit!!! Keep up with the great work! I'll be back for another two extensions when my wallet allows it. Greetings!
Delivers in every way
Matty from United States
Definitely one of the best buys we have made in terms of Magento extensions.
Support is amazing in helping sort any compatibility issues with other extensions or themes
Un + sur notre site
Espace-camera from United States
Un outil bien conçu mais pas facile a installer soi-même.
Heureusement le SAV est trés réactif et en 30mn, tous les problèmes d'installation on été réglé. Trés bon produit, recherche facilitée, juste en tapant les 3 1ere lettres du produit. Je le conseille !
Excellent Product and Excellent Support!!!
Shabeer from United States
Highly Recommended !!!! No need to look anywhere...
This the first & last module anyone would need for search functionality.
Features in the module has surpassed my expectations.
Keep up the good work guys.
Great product, Works much better then default search.
NDX from United States
I have multiple extensions from other companies, this installed without any issues and setup was very quick and easy.
Great job guys.
arash from United States
This extension is all an online store needs. The tech support was really helpful and fix some issues in my theme which was conflicting with the extension functions.
Arthur from United States
Поставили модуль, работает как часы. Огромная благодарность службе поддержки, настроили все под наш сайт. До этого стоял модуль поиска от aheadWorks постоянно глючил и тормозил.
Excellent product and support
idpkender from United States
My Magento theme is highly customized, including a non-standard search box already.. After purchasing the Sphinx Search Ultimate the Mirasvit team went out of their way to help me in making sure my theme was fully integrated with their product... spending their time and energy ensuring each aspect worked properly.
Vladimir (the support rep I dealt with via live chat during installation) was highly professional and polite. The development team was great in assisting me with any questions I had about the product during the time my theme was being modified.
Response time to queries via their support system was always speedy and on the mark
Excellent service and excellent mod
Jim from United States
I have a very customized theme for my site and all mods are generally for 'out of the box' installations, the Mirasvit team not only stayed with me in chat during installation to ensure there was no problems but they also helped customize my theme to ensure that the search was working 100% on my site after install.
There was nothing but professionalism and a true feeling of being supported by the team here during the whole process! I Highly recommend the products and support team here.
A definite MUST HAVE extension
Novatech from United States
This extension works better than we had hoped. Support was amazing. We had a problem that was related to our templates, they went in made a few adjustments and in no time it was working perfectly. Thanks so much for your help.
Superb Magento Search Extension
RogerZ from United States
I recently had a sync issue using Magento+Linnworks, and after a few days investigation and tests I finally found out it's because of another similar search extension I used (Better Store Search). I disabled the old search extension and linnworks sync with my site fine. I then found this extension and wow, it brings really excellent search results and very easy to use, most important linnworks sync with my site happily. :)
It's really a 5 star extension!
Way improved search, the easy way!
Janus from United States
Works as described. Much better than the built-in search and setup couldn't be easier.
Danny from United States
Improves the standard search dramatically!
You MUST have this!
Chris from United States
Anyone who has a Magento store will be sorely disappointed with their search facilities. This is a must have extension for anyone serious about their visitors finding things on their site.
LNdotcom from United States
Very nice and it produce great result. After installation, I found adjustment issue on search bar, but their support fix this with very timely manner.
Strongly 100% recommends to magento developer.
Thank you mirasvit.
Virtual from United States
Is Very Good!
Great Search Module - Fantastic Service
Alex from United States
This search module is brilliant, really pleased with it and just wish we'd found it earlier. The autocomplete list is very accurate and the search results are fantastic.
To top it off the customer service from this company is truly superb. You get very fast responses and action to any problems, and they'll even help with additional features, such as, in our case, searching for a Quickfind code (Product ID with QF prefix) - this isn't stored in this way in the database but they made it work for us!
Check out how it works on our site - www.safeoptions.co.uk
If you haven't yet moved away from the standard Magento search then I'd recommend you get this asap. It is a HUGE improvement and in our opinion a must have.
Thank you Mirasvit! :-)
Awesome Extension, Even better support!
embmicro from United States
I bought this extension a few days ago because my site has a ton of CMS pages that I wanted to include in searches. After installing it on my server a had a few minor problems but they were all fixed in a very timely manner by Mirasvit support! They even did a few minor customization for me. Really great extension!!!
Don't start a magento store without it
Arnan from United States
Bought it just yesterday. Installation was easy and fast. Settings are well described, and also easy to adjust. Little problem with the place of the search box, which overlapped my Login, Whislist etc. buttons. Fixed by support desk very swiftly! Also 3 translation "problems" were immediatly fixed (do they work 24/7?). Because Sphinx Search Ultimate is such a complete extension, it really makes you think about the possibilities on product level. Every product you create you must think about synonyms for example. I'm confinced doïng this will make you money. The final thing i really love about this extension is the search and autocomplete which is Soundex based and a absolute must in every searchindex/machine.
Mirasvit, thank you for this great extension en support!
John from United States
I can't believe how much better my search results are now, I tried a search before I installed it and got over 500 results, after installation just 25 and all relevant
Great extension and company!
Ben from United States
Great extension, certainly improves your customers experience. The company is friendly and good to deal with too. Thanks you.
Natalie from United States
What an awesome extension!! I had my developers install it last night and I've been messing with it this morning. It has put us in a place where we can really market our website now. Seriously a life saver!
This search engine rocks hard! Search results are just spot on!
supplements from United States
We sell natural nutritional supplements and our webshop is Magento based. The standard Magento search engine is so so bad. We installed this extension and the results are exactly what we want. Also tweak options are available.
Keep up the good work and the great service!
p.s. its too bad you don't have a extension like "who bought this, also bought"
Outstanding product with excellent support
genuinecentre from United States
I have contacted them after 3 months ,my support period was over long time back but Vladimir has understood my issue and promised me that he will support it even if my support period has expired
he resolved the issue in less then hour , I am highly thankful you for this and of course the product is excellent for its value , Its must have product for anyone who has more products and wants accurate results
Also want to add that this products works like charm with other installation without any issue
Amazing support and one of the best sellers on here
gloopy from United States
This is a must have for any magento store and the seller will help you straight away. I would recommend this to anyone.
Naveen from United States
It is really nice plugin and with the great support. i like this plugin and recommend to use in magento store.
Great speedy support and great extension!
dokkankomstore from United States
Great support and follow up, the support team are keen to have things work for customers, they are always there when you need them! this extension works and we had no issues installing it. we are happy with the results. Thanks
Dream search module needed - SOLVED!
logicc from United States
After battling with a substandard basic search on magento, we arrived at this product. Unusually i went for the installation service due to time pressures, this was a good move.
The install was done without a few hours and worked perfectly from the start. Support were extremely helpful with some config advice and as a result I can recommend this to anyone who needs a quick, solid solution to site search.
Without this extension Magento search should be removed.
Nicolae from United States
Before installing this extension, the Magento native search was just a decorative field. Now one can actually find the product with this tool.
For our website I needed a customization as it follows:
I wanted that If somebody search a sku of a simple product associated to a grouped product the search result to display the parent product, not the child product (grouped).
The Mirasvit team understood perfectly my need.
RepairsUK from United States
This module is essential for anyone using Magento Community edition. Their support is amazing and i would highly recommend them.
The Magento search extension to have, great support
Chris from United States
Installation of this plugin was straightforward as far as Magento goes. I was surprised by how little CSS styling I had to do in order to make it fit with the website. There was an issue with search results and AW Blog, but Mirasvit's support was fast to fix the problem. So far the fastest and most effective support I have seen in the Magento development community.
As for the functionality of the plugin, it is a world of improvement over default Magento search. I anticipate that the increase in sales will quickly pay back the investment costs of the plugin.
Perfect extention and support
mopheus72 from United States
This is a great extention and the support is excellent and quick ! Special thanks to Alexander
Exceptional Extension and 1st Class Service.
ImperialC from United States
The original search was atrocious, we'd search for a unique product and get 73 results. Once this extension was installed, we were often getting just 1 result, the exact product we were searching for. It's highly customizable so you can tweak it if you want to refine the results. And the auto complete/suggestions feature looks ultra professional.
The developer was quick to respond to our queries and dealt with us professionally and in a friendly manner. We have total faith that should we require more support then they will be able to fulfill our needs.
Geat Extension, Incredible Support
bigfoot56 from United States
We purchased the extension a couple of days ago because of the well known magento search problem.
Installation is extremely easy. Configuration is relatively easy but you need to experiment to get the results you need. We have only configurable products with a heap of associated prodcuts related, we asked whether support can help us eliminate the associated products from the search and adjust the design to our theme, the support adjusted it for us immediately on a Saturday, on Sunday they implemented it on our 404 page.
We use the built in version because we use a managed server and they do not accept installing sphinx on it, but although we have nearly 1 million SKU´s the search is pretty quick.
We are extremely satisfied customers.
Best service ever!
Another Happy Customer
bbrodka from United States
Their Developer Support should be the model for all Developers!
I ran into a small problem with my theme and look and where most Developers would tell you it is outside their realm and push you away, these guys had it taken care of in about 1/2 hr - clearly above and beyond my expectations.
Their can do, we are here to help you get up and running attitude is most refreshing.
Oh, and the functionality of the search module is outstanding too :) Much better then the Magento default search
II will be considering their other modules in the future as my budget permits
A you can see from the many positive reviews, these guys are top notch - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Great Extension and Support
Jeff from United States
We have had the Fast Asynchronous Re-indexing and Sphinx Search extensions for the past few months and they have worked magic for our database of over 160,000 products. When we have had encountered small problems, the team has gone above and beyond all expectations to resolve as quick as possible. I would highly recommend any products offered by Mirasvit.
fitnessworld24 from United States
I just implemented this awesome search extension. The default search offered by magento delivered bad results.
Sphinx Search Ultimate was easy to implement and customize.
This is a must have!!
garrettperna from United States
Greatly improves our site. We started out with the Sphinx Search Pro, and then upgraded to ultimate. The support team is seriously on top of things! You guys are awesome!
Bahram from United States
very happy with the extension,
Not only works as beautifully as they say it does
(I know is not right to use the word beautiful in this concept) but I am so happy that I could not resist it.
We have over 7000 items and still perform accurately and fast.
To top that is very reasonably priced, worth every penny and +
No wonder they get so many good feed backs.
Well done all in Mirasvit, keep the good work.
Try all the other - this is the best - exceptional service!
DietmarThaler from United States
We have a multi.shop (multi.domain) magento installation on search autocomplete makes part of you navigational concept - it's so very important! see embio.it
We tried so with 2 other providers before came out this extension which is not much cheaper but much (!!) faster, simplier, more flexible etc.
We are so thanksful of the great support Alexander and Vladimir gave live (via online chat - even on Sunday morning!!) to implement it in a few clicks for our requirements.
They are developing fast and improving constantly. World would be a much better place with some more such people around... ;-)
This is an excellent extension ....
Ryan0734 from United States
The default search on magento didn't cut the mustard for me, but Search Ultimate does the job perfectly.
Its also very good at finding products that customers have spelt incorrectly.
Installation was a breeze and it works great...
I highly recommend this extension
lifemags from United States
Sphinx Search Ultimate is a fantastic product. It has greatly improved the search capability on my site. I know it will improve sales for me because of it's usefulness. I also suggest purchasing the installation option also. They did a wonderful job and were also very helpful with the several questions I had after.
I highly recommend this extension.
Great Search Enhancer!
nj5050 from United States
I avidly recommend this extension for the best search enhancing features.
Above all, the developers customer support is top notch, Pin-points areas of concern & quickly resolves any issues at the speed of light. A+
Customers can now find what they search for!
Ed from United States
As you all know Magento Community standard Search Box usually offers up everything except the products the customer was searching for. This extension works and delivers a great result. Customer service at Mirasvit is top notch. I bought it late Thurs afternoon and they had it installed and working great by early afternoon Friday. I will definitely be exploring their other extensions. An excellent product that I will recommend to others.
DerFredster from United States
We were having performance issues on a 450k + product catalog search. Not only was the installation easy and smooth but the support from Mirasvit was absolutely outstanding.
- value for money
- great support
- works as described
- gave us a great performance boost
If ever in doubt about purchasing this extension you can contact us (Magento integrator in Germany) and we can provide you with details.
Great Extension... Even Better Service
TatumLD from United States
I purchased this extension and had a little difficulty installing it since I'm on a shared server. I e-mailed Mirasvit support and they immediately helped me get it installed. The product works beautifully and MUCH better than Magento's default search but I'm mostly thrilled that their support was so responsive and helpful.
Incredible extension / SUPERB company
JohnM from United States
I've been working with a number of Magento extension developers and companies as I've been building our new site and I have to give a full 5 stars thumbs up to these guys. I've installed both the Sphinx Search Ultimate extension as well as the SEO Suite and not only do the extensions perform perfectly as advertised, but the support from Alexander and the Mirasvit support staff is bar none, top notch!
You will be very pleased choosing these guys - they are on top of their game!
Thank you Mirasvit!
Thanks for a great extension
johnhall from United States
Best Search extension I've found. We have over 23,000 products on our website www.shop-equip.com and the standard Magento search facility threw up weird search results the Sphinx Search Ultimate extension works brilliantly.
I had a couple of issues with our template, I contacted Mirasvit support and they sorted it out in less than 30 minutes... very impressed.
Thanks for a great extension
Sphinx Search Ultimate works like a dream
iPoster from United States
I have been looking for a decent search to replace the very poor one provided with magento for some time. Sphinx Search Ultimate works like a dream, returning accurate results very quickly and on the fly as you type. It can be configured in many ways to suit. I had a small css issue after installing but the support was immediate. In my opinion this is a must have extension. Well done guys! I am using it on v 1.7
Best option for Magento + Sphinx
Rob from United States
After comparing several extensions for the use of Sphinx with Magento it was obvious the extension Sphinx Search Ultimate by Mirasvit is the best choise. It has the most options and offers the best value for money. After purchase Mirasvit support installed the extension and made sure everything works in our store. We never had better and faster support. Thank you and we will recommend the product to everyone searching for a serious search improvement for Magento.
Absolutely Wonderful: Do not hesitate to purchase this extension.
Mike from United States
We purchased this extension for our EE 188.8.131.52 cluster after struggling with Solr for 10 months. I was blown away with this company and this module.
#1: The customer service is excellent! Do not hesitate to contact them.
#2: The extension is very intuitive and gives great flexibility.
#3: The search results with this extension and Sphinx are far superior to anything I've seen for Magento.
This extension is working great!
sierra2021 from United States
This extension is working great! I've been looking for a reasonably priced search extension for a while now and finally found something solid. Great support and fast response behind the scenes too. Immediately helped me with making few tweaks and modifications. Thank you and keep up the great work!
Great extension, adds more function to search and improve its result so much more.
zpen from United States
