Easy to use posts carousel widget. Plenty of options to customize. Didn't chew up my server's CPU. Only displays one slide at a time, with no option to display a multi-slide carousel. If that fits your needs, this excellent, overlooked (I say overlooked because of the number of downloads as of 10/17) carousel widget is a nice find and will work for you without problems.
