Eco Enterprises

Eco Enterprise is their name and gardening products to help you grow almost anything imaginable is their game! they have top notch customer service and nice incentives to spend money:) i would say that i have easily invested more at this one site than any two or three others in the same field, why? because i have never had a business organization big or small go out of their way to make sure that their customers are satisfied like they have...period, in fact i so firmly believe that that just dotting the end with a period wasn't emphatic enough, i had to spell it out! hows that for coolness. so if you live on the west coast and are into plant products & propagation products look for these folks as they are my benchmark standard when it comes to indoor or outdoor gardening, soil or hydroponic products, they have all you need and more

the new standard - i just purchased the manfrotto 055xprob tripod with a 484rc2 ball head camera mount. so far im satisfied but i can see some potential problems with the ball head:sand or other fine debris being blown around and possibly in the ball joint. the site itself deserves top marks but the company took off a week for passover which delayed my orders delivery just as long as their break. i can't bust their balls for their beliefs but i can state that it certainly constipates the flow of receipt of ordered products. i have no reason to deal with customer service so ill pass that on as a good sign and recommend their services to anyone looking for a reputable company with competitive prices .... so to update on the product purchased i have this to say: the tripod is a little heavy for longer hikes but the capabilities are worth the weight, the height that it can reach when fully extended is quite impressive, several inches above my head and im over 6'. i think i ought to start saving for the gitzo mountaineer carbon fiber tripod for the long foot bound journeys. the case adorama included was much larger than the tripod :( its a pain in the ass to have the tripod in because its so loose. so far soo good with the ball head, its a simple pleasure to use, i really dig the extra little safety for the quick release!! saved me a few times.

Phishin for funds - a sister site to everydaygrants.com run by the same people
. i purchased their information for just a few bucks and was granted instant access to the grant list, i searched it vigoriously for funding of a dream of mine, to develope a local facility that would provide renewable, reliable energy to the area which the facility is located, and to eventually have one of the facilities for most provences. after four days of searching through the lists i found nothing and sent a reply email to cancel the account, they claim they never got the email and charged my credit card for 118.16. i called them and had asked them what the deal was and they said that the email that they used send me a message that they were happy for my interest wasnt able to recieive any incoming email... so.... if anything i wouldnt trust these folks with any of your financial information.

Do you like to Give away your money? - thats what youll be doing by trying to purchase access to grant lists and government funding through these people. i purchased their information for just a few bucks and was granted instant access to the grant list, i searched it vigoriously for funding of a dream of mine, to develope a local facility that would provide renewable, reliable energy to the area which the facility is located, and to eventually have one of the facilities for most provences. after four days of searching through the lists i found nothing and sent a reply email to cancel the account, they claim they never got the email and charged my credit card for 118.16. i called them and had asked them what the deal was and they said that the email that they used send me a message that they were happy for my interest wasnt able to recieive any incoming email... so.... if anything i wouldnt trust these folks with any of your financial information.

looking for something - google has it all from, maps, images, websites, to product reviews, government secrets, alternative energies, science references. if you have an itch to know something, don't hesitate type it in at google.com and find the results your after. why skimp yourself on knowledge? feed the brain and answer your deepest questions... or at least most of them...

great shoe deals - i was in need of some new boots capable of maintaining comfort in subzero temps. I tried zappos and they were out of my size so i googled what i wanted, found this site and within this site were magica prices that made me drool so i found a very fitting pair of boots and bought them. everything was mega simple, the side search results were helpful in choosing a product that might fit the criteria of my product requirements.

please don't get sucked in - its a social networking system in which people reveal more on their myspace then to any one individual in real life. a good place to have a long distance connection with family and friends from afar. im not trashing myspace, im just presenting some realistic things about it, and not all are negative. you may reach some desperate person in their darkest hour and prevent them from something rash, or may express some feelings of your own. i leave the choice up to you

frugal fingers - i try to be cost efficient when im buying camera accessories while purchasing reliable well known and established products and manufacturers. well through amazon purchasing from gigabargain was definitely within the criteria of my frugal ways. i ordered a ring light for macro photography and it was competitively priced, shipped to me in about a week using DHL, arrived without any dings or crushed box corners:) DHL where i live has a not so nice reputation for dinged up packages. unsatisfied with my product i sent it back after obtaining a RMA, and all is good

Need New shoes? - quick cheap shipping, awesome selection for men women and children for all seasons and usually have some sort of special going on so you can save even more off thier already reasonable prices. most of the products offered on this site have a pretty good track recored for durability and comfort with plenty of consumer feedback and reviews so you can get a more illistrated mental image of the product youre buying. if your looking for a shoe company that care about your comfort and posture check out Chaco footwear or Earth shoes.

Need some definitions - Merriam Webster yes like the dictionary has an online free of charge dictionary thesaurus medical dictionary and Spanish to English translator, but for the ultimate knowledge seeker become a unabridged member for $30 for one year and get so much info your brain will most likely explode... ok so maybe not but really though. but if you like etymology you be absolutely obsessed with this site, it has some pretty thorough details and sources. knowledge is power... rule the world... with Merriam Websters online information source

Hard to find OEM reccomended batteries? - look no further, after about seven hours of searching i found that this site offers some of the best prices around and delivers all that they claim. i have purchased three batteries that were difficult to locate at anything less than $60 each! except from these guys, which for the price of one battery somewhere else, i picked up three batteries from batteries.com
they even offer the advanced versions of most battery types offering lighter weight and longer duration of power supply via lithium technology. best prices around

Unbelievable Digital memory prices - ever since i discovered this site i have needed look nowhere else to buy my digital memory!
i have three 4g SD cards purchased from them and just recently ordered a 16g HCSD. i think i paid under $18 for each of the 4g and spent about $30 after promotional code for the HCSD16g which was originally priced at around $40 which is still really freaking reasonable!
they have numerous brands available so even if your a brand purist they have what your looking for without the "Glamorous" price. i will continue to direct my patronage to them for digital memory. superior prices and if anyone finds a better spot ill be speechless!

Customer service aimed to please - not only do they offer superior product services but their cutsomer service is purly top notch! i do believe the vast majority of their products have lifetime tech support. they have a huge selection of audio visual products for in home or in your car. they have from what i have experienced the most product knowledgable staff i have ever encountered and if they don't know im sure they could tell you who does, but i find that unlikey.
their digital camcorder and digital camera selection is decent but as for diversity in manufacturers selection is kinda sparse. their camera accesories like tripods, flashes are available. but personally i feel a site dedicated to photography equipment is bound to have a better selectoin of the latter.
they have a fair return/exchange policy. very fair
i have purchased car audio and home theater products with extreme confidance from them, i have never been disapointed or even slightly unsatified by these guys and readily recommend them to all my friends.

Abes of maine review - i bought my Panasonic FZ50 from them with relative ease, they offer good products and reasonable prices, the only thing i didnt particularly like about them is:them trying to sell me some extra accessories that weren't actually intended for use with that model camera. so if they offer you a product make sure you research it and make double certain the accessories offered is compatible with your equipment. great shipping time with standard express and very helpful customer service.

some good with some less good - this comapny offers competitive pricing and pretty decent customer service. i have made repeat orders from them and was for the majority satisfied, except when i ordered a set of 55mm macro lenses and they sent me 52mm macro lenses, so after i repacked it i took it to the postal office and paid for a return shpping of the product, several weeks later my replacement came, this time the lenses were the right size but one of the lenses was defective and i noticed immediatly and contacted them giving them the nitty gritty and was not contacted back. i have made a few attempts to resolve this issue but to no avail.so when all is said and done, if your looking to save some cash and shop with these guys make sure to check your basket twice and be sure to order the correct product.

prints to please - i have recently made a few orders from this facility and the results were definitely of top marks on the majority of the prints. if there were any color errors, they were my fault because my monitor wasn't properly calibrated to render the colors as they would appear on the prints. they offer a pretty fair deal on evaluation prints(limit 5 images but each image is printed on metallic paper and lustre(similar to matte but with a textured finish) color corrected and un corrected, so you get a very good idea about what you are going to receive before committing to a large order, helping to ease the anxiety of mishaps.i only hold back the fifth star is for two reasons, 1, because i have not had any other proclaimed professionals print my works so i don't have a comparison to other quality printers, they're way beyond kinkos... soo if that gives any idea. 2nd they use fed-ex, let me explain... on the 16th i made an order at beyond early in the morning,files conveniently transfer via internet, when it came time for shipping options i needed this product asap for a deadline so i chose next day delivery... four days later heres my package... but my deadline was the day before... so i was quite purturbed other than that im sure it was a fluke. they have awesome products available

I'm surprised at the number of negative reviews of Adorama - I admit our 'first stop' for photo...
