Anyone have any experience or reviews on these Bella Outdoor Pizza Ovens?

http://bellaoutdoorliving.com/pizza-ovens/

I get the Forno Bravo emails, and they mentioned these ovens in their April Wood-Fired Newsletter, No. 72. They appear to be of the steel barrel with some refractory materials class WFO. Looks similar to a Pizza Party. I'm years out from pulling the trigger on my first WFO, but the fast heat up and cool down of this class of WFO is appealing, so long as it can deliver on a fast bake Neapolitan. And I'd likely get the biggest size either has. The Pizza Party has their 70x70cm flagship model, but they also have a bigger one, the "Large Wood oven mobile “Pizzone” 4 pizzas Restyling 2015". The size of which is unclear on their website. Bella has a larger size class forthcoming.

Anyway, just looking for some feedback here. I couldn't find anything about these in the search.

It would appear to be any one of the hundreds of cheap imports that look just like it and come over for a few hundred bucks:

I'm a bit suspicious of it's ability not make NP as claimed. Maybe, but I'd like to see pictures.

Me too, but with all the positive chatter about the Pizza Party from reputable forum members here, I was hopeful this was a rising WFO class..

Consider this is the only pizza they show in their gallery. I'm dubious.

The Pizza Party appears to be a rather different design that seems to have proved itself capable. I don't think you can compare the two based on a few outward similarities.

The front is more open on those ovens, not good for heat retention.

You can look the videos on youtube to give you an idea
