In this Magento review, we must highlight most crucial part of this ecommerce platform which is Attributes. In other words, in Magento all game is about Attributes because this one aspect that we need on the time of managing and entering of products. Key attribute for T-Shirt, shirt size, shirt brand, shirt color, shirt width etc and Key attributes for a Laptop is, Brand, Processor, Disk Storage, Ram, Battery Cells, Camera etc.

Static Blocks and Widgets:
Static blocks are the place in Magento where you can stick banners and slider on your store layout. Static blocks are the most necessary and creative part of Magento store back-end.
Simply create static blocks and pages and assign that particular page homepage. Almost Magento layout comes from static blocks and widgets. There are so many options to customize your blocks as per like.

That is the vital place, where you can set up your entire store major settings. Like Store general settings, Web design, currency setup, contacts, reports, catalog, filter products, inventory, Google sitemap, promotions, sales, Payment methods, shipping methods, shipping charges setup and further Magento core features.
According to my experience, in Magento configuration panel there are more than 500 options exist to customize store with more reliability.
Many of my readers and students claim that Magento is slow sometimes. But my approach says, that is not true that depends on your theme files, almost market themes comes with heavy weight coding which put burden on your server-side. Another one reason can be your hosting, Magento can not be run on simple shared hosting, you should need to purchase at least HostGator business plan or VPN cloud hosting service.
If someone ask to me to rate Magento as per my experience, so i would give 4.7 out of 5. Magento can be difficult for beginners but not impossible to understand.
Please beware about somethings before developing or product entries on Magento, which is image optimization and too much necessary form Seo point of view.
