Without giving out too many details, I'm developing a product that acts as an external battery charger for portable consumer products such as cellphones and tablets with an SMD LED display to show different data such as battery capacity. The device incorporates a flexible LED dot matrix display, a charging circuit, batteries, usb and micro usb/ lig...

“I hired Mersain in February of 2014. They were to design a watch per my specifications. They said I would receive the prototype around April 28th, 2014. When I finally received it, it was October 17th, 2014. WAY over schedule. During that time they insulted me several times, lied, and failed to complete anything as promised. They told me things were impossible and that I had too high of a standard. I actually ignored a lot of imperfections and made many compromises just to move forward, but in the end it was still too hard for them to do what they agreed to do. I have several years of experience in manufacturing and product design. I know what's possible and whats not. There is really no excuse as to why anything couldn't have been done. I wasn't asking them to split the atom or build a rocket. It's a watch with a power bank built in for charging phones on the go. That's it. A lot of the technology in the watch is on the market and I even had consultants in the US confirm the technology to be not only possible but "easy". When I did receive the prototype it was 9 mm longer and 4 mm wider than designed , the clasps were falling apart, there was glue on the bands, firmware issues, and multiple large dings and scratches among other things. In fact they sent the $7,000 prototype in a broken, flimsy, water damaged, old box inside an envelope. That in essence shows their character. As of now the watch doesn't work at all. They agreed to a new PAYED job so that they could make a second watch but after 3 weeks told me that it's impossible to make a new one. After 3 weeks of redesigning the CAD models they told me they can't make what they had basically already made. That they've changed their minds all of a sudden. We were green for 3 whole weeks moving forward, good to go and they FINALLY say they can't make it. The biggest disappointment was their complete lack of respect. I sincerely hope my review steers you from Mersain and ultimately from the hell I went through.
