For what it's worth I have the 11x14" split back contact printing frame from photographers formulary and like it very much. I don't recall now if I got it from adorama or b&h or maybe even amazon, but the price was lower than at the photographers formulary website and the shipping was lower or maybe free too. It is very solidly built and does a good job of applying pressure all over.

Do agree about the snap/unsnap, but like the solidness.
