So, what do we think of them? I buy now and then, but I'm wondering what people think of them.

Every time I've ordered from them I've been pleased with what I got and when I got it, but I've been very selective about what I'll buy from them.

Is there a particular reason you're so selective? Is the quality of their items "spotty?" In other words, some things are of good quality and other things are cheap junk?

Anything I've bought from them I've had good luck with everything I've bought. Like mentioned above though, you have to be selective about what you buy and do your research. Not everything they sell is a top quality item.

They have good customer service. I wanted to return some items, and it couldn't have been any easier.

I also agree with the previous comments about being careful about what products you order.

I've only ordered a few things from them but have always been happy with the goods and the service.

Some of their stuff looks like cheap junk to me, and some of what they carry is seriously overpriced. I don't buy anything from CTD without comparing price elsewhere.
