There are many people who have had positive experiences ordering from Newton Sales and dealing with its owner (Ferdi Ozguner, also known as Knowledge Navigator).

However, there are also quite a few stories in the NewtonTalk archives relating tales of terrible customer service, exaggerated product claims, "bait and switch" pricing, and other ordering issues.

Personally, I have never directly dealt with or ordered from Ferdi or his company. The only issue I have had with Newton Sales was a rash of promotional list spamming several years ago. Because of this, he was banned from the list in 2011.
