Standard sliders are responsive and robust behind the scenes. They can be touch-sensitive and offer some very cool transitions. They’re easy to edit by yourself too.
The video above is a great demo of the “Revolution Slider” from ThemePunch, a favorite of ours for it’s ease-of-use.
If you’re looking at building a site on a responsive framework, a Standard or Premium slider will work perfectly. Even if you’re not, this tier of slider offers transitions like slices, carousels, spinning, and more.
Also, they generally have an easy-to-use admin panel to make editing and creating new sliders for other pages a breeze.
