Default What is the best "search function" mod ?

Everyone agrees the built in xcart search feature is useless...

There are a number of mods out there which improve the search function, such as:

- X-Cart AJAX Dynamic Product Search v4.x
- Smart Search for X-Cart by WebsiteCM Software Inc.

i'm sure there are a number of others as well.

Can someone please tell me what is the best one, both in terms of efficiency & value for money ????

Also i am still using ver 4.1.9, has the built in search function in xcart 2nd generation improved or is a mod still advised?

Thanks,

Smart search, hands down

Moving to Third Party add-ons

Cheers Balinor...

In xcart ver 2+ has the search function improved, or is it still best to invest in the Smart search ?

To those who use Smart Search by WebsiteCM... does the 'Advanced Instant Product Search' work similar to autocomplete?

I'm getting a broken link "product disabled" on WebsiteCM for Smart Search. I see a "Smart Search" alteredCart.com, is this the same?

The mod creator is alterereCart.com, WebsiteCM is the partner for this module sale.

Yes. Both are the same.
