Well the two-syllable domain name I wanted with .com extension was taken, so I settled for the domain name hyphenated. Now I don't like that hyphen any more.

My choices now seem to be either to get the name I want with .biz TLD, or a new .com name altogether.

What's the general thinking about the .biz TLD. Is it much of a negative?

I dont think anything is wrong with an hyphenated .com name.

Sometimes it is easier to read and type than a long un-hyphenated name.

I would rather have a .com hyphenated name than a .Biz TLD or net. or org.

URL that was un-hyphenated.

it's kind of a toss up. After all .biz is good but .com typically outranks all other TLD when it comes to PR.

I know a few .biz sites and they stand out to me because of the TLD... I'd say if your like the sound of the new domain with BIZ go with it. if it sounds flaky then don't
