There is certainly lots to choose from at this site, but the company is not very e-commerce friendly. The demonstration furniture comes in various shapes and sizes, so there is definitely a model for every occasion. There is a real street address provided for the warehouse. However, customers will have a hard time finding that precise unit. The organization is not the best. What makes this company rate poorly is the fact that purchases cannot be made online. An order form must be submitted to a representative. Then customers must wait until they hear back from the company. Clients that need a tripod fast should not order one from this website.

This website extremely straightforward. The company sells one studio display and that is it. Customers impressed with the style and function can order this product. The site is missing many of the e-commerce components, but the collection is so small that these standards almost do not apply. This catalog does not need to be searchable because there is only one option. There is not an online shopping cart, but customers can click the quantities on the checkout page. Credit cards and personal checks are accepted. Amazon Payments are not allowed. Customer service is available to help and there is a street address for the warehouse.

A highly disappointing website that does not function as anything more than an advertisement for a company Facebook page. The home page states that the site will be fully functional by June 21, 2011. Judging by the state of the website, this target date was not met. There is a phone number and address on this page. Nothing else is listed. Customers cannot see any artistic tools here. Visitors are welcome to sign up for company e-mails. This website does not even try to partake in e-commerce. There is no reason to visit the site.
