Rated 5 out of 5 by dnasport Great Extension!
I have installed and used this theme for the past 6 months. This has been great at keeping the customers informed of presales, stock levels and stock arrivals.
Very easy to install. One issue we did have Chad was more than happy to email and help.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mtdrew Works fine but was a pain to set up
The author seemed reluctant to help me once I indicated I was not interested in the installation service. I made several inquiries and although he helped me with the easier ones, I was also met with "I am extremely busy" and "I don't know why this is happening". After stepping through his code line by line, then finding and understanding the problem areas I was asking about, I feel he should have been able to give me a little more direction as to where to look in the code.
Additionally, one of the problems I was having he suggested would be fixed by using the newer version of his extension, which he sent me. The issue was not fixed however, and doing a diff on the two versions revealed that no changes had been made in the area I was having a problem with. This to me showed a lack of familiarity with his own code, and also raised questions as to why he was only offering an older version of the extension thru his site. Perhaps because the newer version was still being worked on, but then why send that to me if it's still in development? Just seemed a little unprofessional.
After a few bug fixes I do have everything working, and overall I am happy with the functionality. However next time I buy an extension I will likely avoid the smaller individual developers and go with a more established company, as I feel the quality of the extensions and support you get is worth the extra price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by punctum Very useful
I purchased the unlimited extension, and have been very pleased. I initially misread the install instructions and wrote the developer thinking there was an issue - he quickly wrote back within 20 minutes (I'm in the US) with instructions. This functionality is in my option is sorely lacking from Magento - so this will likely be the first extension I install on each project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dome_1 An invaluable extension!
CJM's Custom Stock Status has been one of the most important extensions we have used.
Chad's service has been excellent, and worked to get the extension dialed in with our theme and other extensions. The end result has been a seamless, yet critical, part of our customer experience.
The admin side is intuitive and easy to use, right from the get-go. Couldn't be more pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rachi_1977 Super Extension and Superior Support
I have once again received awesome support for this extension after I changed my theme and Chad helped me to get the extension working again. This is the best support you will find anywhere on an extension with so many wonderful features. All online shops need this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Felconian1 Breaks Features
I bought this extension but although it worked to a degree a few things broke!
1) My grid display in my catalog dropped the outer right column... leaving a very uneven display (Not Good)!
2) I could no longer display my SKU's on the catalog page. They all just disappeared and this is important to my client!
My concern is that this extension breaks or disables other features in magneto. I have only found these two at this point. Who knows what other problems may come up down the road!
Adding insult to injury the support in my experience is very poor. When i asked about features before i purchased the product the response was quick to encourage the sale!
However now that i have an issue... they to this point have not responded.... Not even a acknowledgment of receipt to my issue!
I now feel compelled to request a refund(or Log a PayPal dispute) as i am not sure i will get any response...and purchase another product that will be more reliable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mattrochman Fantastic extension
This is a great extension that did everything our client wanted, plus more.
Our client has both color and size attributes (with CJM's fantastic swatch module running on the color attribute) and this stock status work flawlessly.
Contains many more features and custom settings than we expected and excellent, prompt installation service from Chad, as always. Well done CJM.
