Reviews of XCart:
I've used X-cart in the past, and they're still ran by the same company so... avoid at all costs. Don't ever pay for it. Don't even use it for free. To give you an idea, I had a client on the paid cart long ago that cost I think $450. He sold physical goods via UPS and USPS. USPS had alerted all vendors of an upcoming change to their API a year ahead. Well, the cut off date rolls around and the X-cart devs have no fix. My client can no longer offer USPS shipping, and all the other stores offering it can't accept. It required community members to fix the core code. X-cart didn't implement a patch for months. The other thing is pretty much all of the third party developers I bought from used IonCube for their modules so you have no idea what's in them nor can you edit them. Shopify is a great hosted solution, can't really say anything bad about that. For self-hosted you should take a look at Prestashop (the 1.6 branch) or ThirtyBees (a fork of Prestashop 1.6). It's free, the code is straightforward. Third party modules are hit or miss on quality (mostly miss) but no ioncube.
I've evaluated just about every shopping cart. Not a big fan of ProStores. Right now I like X-cart. It's PHP based so you can easily find somebody to customize and you can buy dozens of great extensions for very little.
There are Many available in Market but I like X-Cart because X-cart performance is one of the most important parts for a successful ecommerce site. It allows producing web income for ecommerce websites.
I can tell you from experience that Storefront6 is a badly programmed nightmare, tons of service packs that need to be installed for example and poor features without expensive addons - they think a six stage checkout procedure is a vote winner for example, so you have to spend a few hundreds more dollars on a addon from a developer to correct this flaw - no way, other things like the inability to display subcategories is laughable in 2006 also no breadcrumbs etc. I have spoken some developers who write addons for Storefront - these guys obviously know the code and they all say the same thing - it is badly coded.I have looked at X-Cart and quite liked it, the features look very complete and the support seemed good, the technology did not personally suit my needs as I do not know php but don't let that put you off it is probably the best on the list. Don't know about the others you mentioned.
