Couldn't find any reviews, but some of there prices aren't bad.


Anyone have any experience with the company?

I would be cautious with companies, that don't provide a contact phone number and only rely on email communication.

Also under their terms and conditions its says "The customer must confirm the price before ordering".

Without a phone number, you won't get instant answers from this company.


Also they have 1 review under investigation.

Actually, they do have a phone number – on the About Us page, which I think is very bad design.


However, asking you to enter credit card details on an insecure page is totally unacceptable, and for that reason alone I would never purchase from them – even if I was paying by other means. It is also probably against the terms of their credit card processor, or worse.
