Forgive my haste in making a conclusion, so its a safe bet what they are saying is correct, none the less more sources of information are always better.

The way google is moving with faster loading times amp and the spillover into how desktop sites look sliders are becoming obsolete in ux design. I wouldn't even bother with a plugin and just write my own if i had to.
