I've used FDI several times, and they're a great company! Their frames are of great quality, the shipping is fast, and the customer service is top-notch.

Once I screwed up my order. It was totally my fault and it was a rush job so for all I know they had already started preparing my order when I realized my mistake and called them. But they made the changes with no questions asked.

I strongly recommend this company and you really can't go wrong!

Switched to WOW cable when we moved to the midwest a few years ago. I'm not going to talk too much about the constantly increasing prices and fees, because all cable companies do that after your initial offer term runs out. I've lost track of the number of times they've increased the cost or added fees without providing any more service. I even pay a fee for sports programming, even though we hate sports and never watch sports channels.

The internet service is horrible. It's supposed to be 15mbps. But that's very optimistic, and often we have no service at all. I've used time warner and comcast in other cities in the past, and this is by far the worst service. For some reason, once or twice a month I need to reset the cable modem... not sure why but it totally stops working otherwise.

The cable TV service is also bad. The picture is ok normally, but it often freezes up or gets pixellated. It's the worst I've seen.

Finally, again, the customer service sucks with all of the big cable companies. But WOW markets itself as a company with good service. Well, good luck getting through to a person if you need help. I've been on hold with them for over one hour on several occasions. And the employees aren't particularly helpful.

Avoid WOW at all costs. The only reason we haven't switched yet is because we plan to move soon.

I normally use a different printer, but I had overnightprints.com print some postcards for me. The print quality was very poor. The photographs looked awful and the text was very rough as well. On top of that, the packaging was poor. Half of the cards arrived bent. The spot varnish was not even close to being aligned. Definitely don't pay extra for that, since it'll look cheap.

After chatting online for a half hour, they offered me 50% off as a store credit!

No thanks. I tried to save a few bucks and get cards printed quickly, but it wasn't worth the hassle. Lesson learned. These went in the recycling bin and I got replacements printed elsewhere, where the exact same files came out looking beautiful.

They might be OK if you don't care too much about quality. But if you're in a creative field where clients expect a certain level of quality, this isn't your place.

It's my go-to shop for lingerie. Not the cheapest (or the most expensive I guess) but the stuff is sexy and drives my guy crazy.

I've purchased everything from furniture to kitchenware here, and I'm always happy with the value, the fashionable style, and the quality. I'm a customer for life!

I always use Tigi products since my stylist recommended them a few years ago. I've always been more than satisfied. They offer cutting-edge style at reasonable prices!

I'm a beginner photographer, and I though this workshop would be a good opportunity to learn studio lighting and to learn about how to work with models. I've been to one or two other workshops in the past, and this one was very strange. The environment was kind of depressing and the teacher and his assistants seemed more interested in shooting their own photos of the models than helping the students learn.

The teachers set up a few shooting stations with different lighting. But they never explained why they were set up that way, or what the different lights do.

As I said I'm a beginner. But there was one other student who said he was an experienced photographer. He said he didn't get much out of the workshop either and seemed really annoyed with the whole situation.

On top of that, the mood of the workshop was strangely depressing. The models were bored, of course why wouldn't they be, they were repeating the same poses with the same lighting for each photographer. The teacher and assistants were very low-energy and didn't seem excited or passionate about photography. Usually I leave a workshop tired, but energized and excited about photography. I left this one worn down and I was glad it was over. I was the only woman there (besides the models) and while I love glamour photography and have no problems with men shooting beautiful photos of women, the whole thing had something of an awkward sweaty-old-guy-shooting-young-girls vibe.

About the only reason to take this workshop is to shoot pretty models. But honestly, and I'm sorry to say this, but the models were either young and inexperienced or a bit past their prime.

Tip for consumers: Check out a class at a local community college or art/photography center instead.
