I never submitted a testimonial for any Joomla extensions in the past 10 years including the Mambo age, but after using JReviews since 2007, I must say this is the most valuable extension and support I have ever experienced. As a company we not only need solid feature extension, but more importantly solid support. The JReviews support team answers 99% of our support tickets with 24 hours in the past 8 years, this is something I never got from other Joomla extensions I used. They also listen to user needs and suggestions, and keep improving the extension.-- sky
I've been using the Jreviews component for my Joomla based website for 2-3 years now, suffice to say I've stuck around and wouldn't contemplate moving fro the Jreviews family. Here's why:
Support, upgrades and functionality are the three main factors that keep me coming back for more, I had started using JReviews with my first Joomla based website after migrating from the Wordpress platform (of which JReviews now supports both Wordpress and Joomla), as a complete novice I would recommend new users to thoroughly read the JReviews configuration manual before getting their hands dirty, having said that the support provided by both Alejandro and Kristian really is second to none (the best I've ever experienced), "I don't know where they find the time to manage such a large operation whilst providing such a high level of support along side maintaining the JReviews service - truly outstanding..".
To cut short what would potentially be a very long testimonial, I will sum JReviews up like this:
It is of the absolute pinnacle where it comes to reviews integration for CMS based websites, you can expect a seriously high level of functionality considering all of the coding is done by someone else "it has everything you could possibly wish for, and if it doesn't, the JReviews team are always open minded to new suggestions on top of providing that all important A** customer satisfaction / support."
My last words..?
You can stop researching for other extensions now, pick JREVIEWS, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT - SERIOUSLY!!!-- Andrew James, Site Administrator, AirRifleReviews UK
I have been using jreviews for several years now, with excellent results. In the Joomla world you get what you pay for, and once in a while you get more than you pay for. That is the case for jreviews. It is a true professional component that does exactly what it is said to, and when it does't, the top-notch support makes sure it does! The support is the best support of any component I have used in the joomla community by far. Thanks for such an outstanding component and support to match.-- Josh Arnold, Owner, ATV Escape, LLC
I was searching for comparing extension for Joomla. I received recommendation for JReviews from its competitor. JReviews promissed many features that I wanted. But I was unsure how they work and whether I will be able to use them. I asked many questions before I decided to buy JReviews. What convinced me were very professional replies to my sometimes dilletante questions before I even decided to buy.
I never regreted to have purchased JReviews. Now I am using it for about 4 months and I can say it is excellent extension. At the beginning I thought it will be complicated. Although is has very many features its administration is quite easy and I learned to use it very fast. There is excellent documentation for JReviews and its template. Obviously I had many question that I posted in the forum. Each of them was answered within one day. Many times within minutes. Although my programming knowledge is basic with the help of Kristian and Alejandro I am able to use overrides for individualising of my site.
I must say that I have never experienced such professional and friendly support. For all my questions, even for stupid ones I received well meant reply and advices that went many times further over my query.
I want to express to Kristian and above all to Alejandro my greatest thanks.-- Max Jung
Everything about JReviews is World Class.
It is a very advanced, multi featured and easy to use product that works very smoothly 'out of the box' as a standalone item or integrated with other software.
JReviews is so versatile the possibilities are endless, you can build anything you want (the addons are the same high quality as the core product) with minimal effort, safe in the knowledge that the support provided by Alejandro and the team is superb - fast, helpful, reliable, innovative, responsive to feedback and focused on providing a solution that is best for the customer.
The Online documentation and tooltips within the product provide a high level of detailed information for the core elements of the software as well as multiple variations for different scenarios and numerous helpful guides.
It is also excellent value for money at less than 50 cents per day (< 25 cents per day from year 2 onwards) and the best available in this market sector by a wide margin.
We only work with suppliers that we consider to be totally reliable with high quality products, a similar level of support and tremendous value for money; JReviews easily meets all those conditions.
JReviews is an essential part of any website that requires a Directory environment, it is an amazing package and we give it the highest possible recommendation.-- Richard B, Owner, BowlsChat
The Best extension for Joomla if you need rating system.
The support is perfect and very helpfull.
And the most important is that the creating team comes always with new fresh ideas.
Thank you for everything.-- Dennis Sim
The best product I have seen till now. The product gives you ample flexibility to do things in your own way. Without JReviews, it would have been very difficult for us to achieve our requirements. Not only this, the support is so quick and responsive that you feel as if you are talking to somebody face to face. Thanks guys !!!-- Dimple, Director
I had some problems at the beginning but the support fixed them very fast.
So my module is running perfect.
Thanks to Alejandro ! You make a real good job !-- Heiko Stüber, Famility
I´m very pleased with your component and it works like a charm. Almost one update per week to improving the component and eliminating small bugs.
Your support is friendly, fast and professional. Documentations is excellent either explained in videos or in manuals.
I can recommend it to all users who wants to create a review site or guide on his joomla site. This component is worth each cent!!-- Karl Stöckl, private
I initially bought Jreviews a little hesitantly, worried because I had very specific needs and I knew that I would have to customize it to make it work for me. I, as a beginner website developer desperately wanted this to work for me, and with the help from the support team it has for-filled my my every hope. The product is AMAZING "right outta the box" and I will probably look for ways to use it on other sites. The support that I received for my specific requests though was truly patient and beyond what I deserved really :P I asked alot!! I could not thank them enough.. I know I must have been annoying them in the end, but they always were fantastic! They have helped make a dream of mine come true, creating my website, and hopefully it will be a success. It could not have been done with out them. Jreveiws is so fantastic and the support is even better! Nobody could ask for more!-- Katie Browning
This component has very vast functionality which is limited only by one's own abilities. Every time i explore the admin section of this component, i find amazing capabilities that i are yet to be exploited. It contains almost all the functionalities that a "Review" site should have and everything is so easy to run and configure. I never found it short of any feature, rather you will find it very flexible, customizable and user friendly component.
It would be quite injustice with this testimonial if i don't mention the "Support". The response is immediate and quite detailed. Indeed, this is the Best Spent Money of my life and i would recommend buying this component to every serious person who plans to build a directory of products, places, persons or almost anything in the world.-- Haseeb Jamal, Founder, WebTechTix
I am still astonished by how versatile this Joomla reviews component is in helping me achieve things that I previously thought were impossible. JReviews is flexible, easy to learn, and extremely customizable. And if that doesn't sell you then their superb support will. I've had several issues with my site and without much delay, JReviews has come to the rescue. Highly recommended.-- Vanessa Rosa, Owner, Savage Gamers
I am suprised that you always find room for improvement in every update. Every update offers new features to make jreviews more powerful. I normally dont extend subscription plans, but for jreviews it´s worth every penny. Because jreviews team really work on this software and you regularly offer great enhancements. If I compare the jreviews version that I bought in the beginning with the latest jreviews version, you can say, thats nearly a new product... I would recommend this product to my friends.-- Sascha Pavlyuchenkov, CEO, OOO SEPR Gambling
Well, where do I start, I could write a thousand reasons why JReviews is the leader of the Joomla directory components. I've only been using Jreviews for a few weeks and it has blown me away at how quick I can construct a comprehensive directory. I've tried sobi and other Joomla directories over the years and Jreviews are at the top of their game. It's intuitive, easy to use, very well designed and most of all the application possibilities are endless. It's worth every penny and more. It's not very often I review components, so IMO that's an endorsement in its own right. Well done guys keep up the great work.-- Tony Brown
I just needed to take a minute to thank Alejandro on the support team. I am not the webmaster for my site, and when I had to delve into that end of it when NiceInNewYork shut down it was Alejandro who got it back up and running. He went above and beyond, and answered questions and solved problems for me in an incredible timely manner. Since I don't know how to work the backend of the site, I really couldn't have done it without him. Thank you Alejandro!!! Your support and service is commendable!-- Karen Towey, Founder, NiceInNewYork
Over 5 years ago I've bought my JReviews license. Even then it was already an excellent product with awesome support from Alejandro.
I am using it until now and nothing changed, except it became only better.
Wish Alejandro and Kristian to keep up the good work!
PS Don't look any further for Joomla reviews component!-- Andy Gorev, Webmaster
When I downloaded the trial version I was pleased to see so many features. I had been looking for a review component but there was nothing I liked. This is a full-feature solution to every review website. The support is very neat, mostly within 1 hour respons. Thank you for a tool which is perfect for my needs.-- Martijn Adriaan
...I got the chance to be one of the first to try jReviews 2.4 and I love it...!
...It's loaded with features that leave other directories / reviews site out there look boring...
...The flexibility, the quality of the code, the CCK features and the ease of use make this component a must have for many types of websites you may need to build...
...Now don't get me started on he support...It's simply incredible, never got a top quality / dedicated support like that from any component provider, EVER...
...So yes, I highly recommend JReviews, it's not a expense but a investment...
...Thanks to the JRreviews team...!

As the third developer on a project that has stalled for over a year, I came into it not knowing anything about JReviews. To be honest, I still do not know how to fully utilize all of the features. I had a deadline and a site that was a disaster full of hacked templates and mysterious settings. I needed to get this site up and running before March 17 because the owner is planning an email blast to 20,000 users.
The site was slow on a shared hosting plan at godaddy, so I moved it to a dedicated server and now it flies. It loads in 1.7 seconds. I then had to attack the templates. The developers that preceded me made quite a mess. After fiddling around with it for about a week, I finally gave up and started with fresh templates.
Considering the fact that the license was purchased over a year ago and previous developers had hacked up the site, I really did not expect much in the way of support from the developers. I was pleasantly surprised and am still am very pleased at their response and assistance rendered.
If I am ever asked to create a directory / review site again, I will insist the client use this component. Not only does it have more features than anything out there (multiple criteria ratings comes to mind), the developers are top notch and willing to help.-- Chris Walker
