Out of the 30 or so publishers recommended to me, I have narrowed my search down to several small/independent presses. However, before submitting to them, I would like to know what this site thinks.
Star Painter Publishing
Emerald Falcon Press
These names, like the others I have researched here were given to me by one of the many writing communities I belong too.
Can anyone tell me anything good or bad about any of these?

Silverhand: You really do need to click on the index at the top of the B&BC page and check for the names of the publishers you have questions about. I know that Mundania at least has an existing thread where you should be asking any questions about them. The others may have threads as well. If they don't, then you should feel free to start new topics about them.

I just checked out Star Painter and I like them for a little guy. They pay no advances, but do pay royalties--a little higher than the norm. They have a great mission statement. I sent an email synopsis to them just a few minutes ago. they seem like a new company and worth a check.
Mundania has been around for a while and I've had many dealings with them. They're fine, respectable, actually one of the better smaller presses.
Timberwolf has had my attention before. I wondering if they're temporarily closed for subs right now.
the other one I'm going to check out now.

What Kasey said. The mods have told us to try to cut down on thread proliferation, which is why they started that index/sticky.
But feel free to start a new thread if you don't see any of them in the index (I know Mundania has one because that was one of the threads I cached).

The Mundania one started back in 2003. And, though they do have postings as late as last week, they dont really delve into how the company is doing "now".
Saying that, rather then cluttering the forum with useless posts...I condensed mine into a single question. "Here are the 4 publishers I am thinking about, can you help me."
If you dont like me asking about Mundania that is fine...at least offer an opinion about the other 3. Thank you.

Silverhand, the following are the forum policies:
* Do not start new threads on companies that already have existing threads. Post in the existing thread. Yes, even if you think you are an exception to the rule. You're not.
* Please, only one company per thread, to keep indexing simple. "Thread proliferation" in this case is about multiple threads on one company, not about the total number of companies that have threads.

I agee--but I suspect it has the same distribution problems the so many POD-based publishers do, and that its books rarely see the inside of a bookstore.
What's different about this publisher is the audio CD versions of the books.

I have a Timberwolf audio book on cassette somewhere. The production quality was pretty good, though the price was absolutely outrageous. This was a few years ago.
