This addon was well worth the small price, it has many default menu styles even without custmizing the css if you aren't into that. If you do want to customize the dropdown it is pretty straight forward.
Although, on a side-note, I personally, had trouble editing the menu bar's height at first, but I feel that was less of a style implementation problem, than me being a little rusty on css.
Thanks for creating this addon, you have given me great support on another one of your addons so whenever I buy one of your addons I know I am getting that also.

Great to customise and prompt support
Really good menu to create a customised look for your website. Great support from creator to provide customised features for menu. Well worth the small cost!

Better than coding alone
I already had code half written before I decided to go with Mega Menu. $15 is well worth saving yourself the time and it's well written and easy to customize.
There could be a little more documentation in the CSS but their support is quick and responsive so if you have a question it's no trouble to ask.

Well Worth the $$
Unless you're just trying to learn C5 there's not many reasons to do this yourself. The add-on works as advertised and is pretty customizable if you know what you're doing. Definitely worth the money.

Easy to implement - great looking
Really impressed with the add-on. Super easy for a designer (non-programmer) like me to get my head around how it works and how to customize the look. Thanks jb for the css advice too! Price isn't too steep either for my charity client.

Great Add On
This is a great add on. We took a bit of time to customise it and also to change graphics etc to get shadows exactly how we wanted it.
I think that's the sign of a good add on... being able to customise if you want to at as deeper level as you require.
Support was great and we got a quick response. Thanks!

Great Product, Excellent Support!
I needed a dropdown menu solution for my first C5 site. Mega Menu fit the bill perfectly. I did have one issue which was not Mega Menu's fault, but something in my own template conflicted with it. I removed Google Fonts from my custom menu class CSS and used a web safe font instead and the issue was resolved. To be honest, I'm not sure if Google fonts was the problem or something else in my template. But Mega Menu itself worked great. More importantly, the support was very quick and detailed. The programmer knows what excellent customer service is. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Slow dropdown... FIXED
Working nice but is I find the dropdown menus going realy slow. Even on the developers homepage I have to wait and stop the mouse over the mainmenu to get the dropdown going. It should be reacting in zero seconds. Why this delay. Is it only me?
// update //
...after getting a amazing quick respons I will give this five stars. I am very happy and it easy to configure just the way you like it.
// solution //
In the file "jquery.dcmegamenu.1.3.2.js" in the JS mapp I found the code to fix the sensitivity and everything I needed.
Yes, it probably is your browser or PC affecting speed to a degree. There is advanced built-in hover detection so it knows if you intend to hover your mouse. This very short delau can be adjusted in the view.php file. I'd suggest you open a support request before leaving an uneducated 2 star review. You may not realise, but I've spent many, many hours programming this addon, creating 4 support videos and quickly answering customer questions 7 days a week (even when I'm on holidays). I don't think your review reflects most users experience.

Lovely little add-on and great support.
Out of the box it works perfectly, with lots of colour choices.
I'm tweaking it to fit an eCommerce site, not finished yet. But hopefully it will save time in the long run for my client.

Greatly customizable, but not in a developer-friendly way
I like this add-on, it's working great so far even though I haven't tested it thoroughly nor have I finished to customize it to my needs.
There is room for improvement on the customization user-friendliness: I wish there was an 'unstyled' style, so as to style it from scratch (the custom style is actually the black style that you have to modify). And most importantly, the css file is not that readable and really lacks comments :(
Hopefully this will be improved, but in the meantime, it's still a great add-on.
[UPDATE in response] Thanks. I am experienced with CSS, and precisely because there are so many classes to customize in the stylesheet, comments would be welcome, so designers don't have to figure out which class correspond to what. The videos don't replace /* simple comments */ inside the css file, but sure they're super helpful.
Response by jb1 on at
Thanks for your feedback. The custom.css file is intended for experienced designers who are comfortable with CSS. There are so many different ways it could be customised it's hard to provide comments for everything. I've gone through a lot of effort to create videos for designers and developers to show how it's possible to customise and extend the Mega Menu (seehttp://c5extras.com/add-ons/mega-menu/).... Future versions of Mega Menu will ship with a blank custom.css file so existing customisations are not overridden. Additionally, I always provide quick, friendly support and haven't received any questions from you about how to style your Mega Menu. If you have any questions feel free to open a support request.

Excellent navigation solution
This is the perfect navigation solution for virtually any site. The level of customisation is unlimited. Very simple to use with many options "from the box". A big A+ for the videos, they are very informative and easy to follow. Would recommend this developer without hesitation. Congratulations for a great product and excellent package information.

Great flexible mega menu system
I am a novice with C5 but not with website design. I needed to get a far more effective navigation method, the site is big and deep, I needed to jump multiple levels so I could get visitors to the bottom levels in 3 clicks. JB has delivered the easy (once you get your head around it, video tutorial) method for me.
Support, I screwed up something where I happened to be working in the menu system. I sent a support mail which was replied to within 12 hours with suggested solutions, the first one worked, not bad for someone who hadn't seen the problem before. Its a very good product backed up by someone willing to help, what else do you want, five stars.

Nice menu system - Easy to drop in my Themes
This MegaMenu dropdown menu is kind of a fresh input to the Concrete5 Theme designers. It is really easy to drop into a theme. It's design (with 8 color schemes) is intuitive and helps the creativity to create Themes - The menu is also fairly easy to customize. I will probably use the megamenu in future projects. I should also say that JB. is quick to respond to support issues.

Nice drop-down menu, particularly for sites with deep content
This works really well, and especially shows its colors for sites with deep navigation/menus. If you know a little CSS or are good at finding out how to style (this is me), you'll find the way he set it up to be easy to customize. Support was responsive, even when on vacation.

Works great. Great support.
I've found this add-on to be very flexible and the videos very helpful. Using the support for custom skinning I was able to give the menus a significantly different look. When I ran into a snag with IE8, the developer was quick to respond and release a fix. Great experience!
