Omega Frames

I think it is time that I start using some higher quality frames for my gallery pieces. I am currently using stuff from the bigger art supply sources that I like the looks of quite a bit, but many of them are literally falling apart over time, mainly large gaping cracks appearing in the mitered corners, not to mention that often they arrive damaged to the point that I can't use them and have to send them back. My favorite looking made in Mexico 9x12 frame is costing me $25 on sale. I am not jumping up to $300 - $600 hand carved stuff, but more in the $60 to $100 range for a 9x12.

I have read some good reviews of the Omega Gallery Frames that are available from a few vendors in that price range. They have carved or molded closed corners and filled / covered miter joints that give the look of a much higher dollar custom frame. Have any of you tried them? If so, do they hold together well with no cracks appearing in the miters later? They all ship in individual boxes which should help eliminate cosmetic and structural damage from handling and shipping.
