I like the Soliloquy slider as it was designed by someone close to the Genesis folks, although it does not require the framework. What I like best about it is that I don’t have to pop my slides as featured images on pages/posts. It has its own slide loader that pops them right into the media library so it saves me a step. It also makes it easy to determine the order of the slides. In the Gen Responsive Slider you have to mess with the dates or IDs, etc. It is a nice product but I think it is a bit overpriced and I don’t like their “rental model.” If you don’t pay each year you don’t get updates or support… and it’s like $99 if you have the “pro” license for unlimited websites. No way would I pay that, but all the early buyers are grandfathered in so we get updates for life. I don’t think his biz model will work… not for a slider anyway… not when there are tons of others that do pretty much the same job, if not quite as elegantly. It was worth $99 one-time. It would not be worth $99 a year to me. YMMV.
