Configurable Product Custom Stock Status And More!
Most Effective Extension I have
This is an extension I have been using for 1 year approx. Recently we upgraded our website from 1.7 to 1.8 and needed to purchase and install a new theme because of that. When we installed this extension it caused a display conflict on our product pages and changed the layout. I notified CJM and they fixed this in 48 hours for us.
All the features are perfect and exactly what our customers need. This is my first review which should say something!

Exactly what I needed!
Great little plugin. It fills in the stock level functionality that really should be part of Magento's default install but for some reason isn't.
I have a site that has a handful of modifications but the CJM team had no issues installing it for me.

Great support. Works Well.
Great support. Emailed Chad regarding compatibility with my swatch extension and he was able to make it work.

Great extension, works as described.
We recently bought this extension. We had some questions regarding our theme we use. The developer Chad Morgan installed it, for a reasonable fee, without any problems.
We do recommend this 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.

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.

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.

Must have extension
For a fair price you get a full featured extension plus excellent support.

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.
