First review when I visit your website is there are so many images. I think its better if you use less images so that it loads faster. Some images can be replaces by normal text like copyright, the menu, the Quick Search, Advanced Search. Though images look cooler, it takes time to load the web pages.

The functionalities does not work yet? Since I click on Info or Buy, it does not work.

Hope it helps!

The size of my index page is 24kb. I've never had a complaint about my site taking to long to load. If I had more complaints I would just lower the quality of my images down. instead of replacing them with just text. May I ask what browser you were viewing my site in?

Hey,

I think your site looks very nice although I agree with the comments regarding the time to download. The size of your banner is 51.52KB so I'm not sure how you came up with the 24kb figure for your whole page :?: Try replacing some of the images with CSS effects to reduce the overall size ...

As mentioned, looks very good though :!:

Cheers, Prime ... :D

Please make sure to check the w3c validator (4errors) http://validator.w3.org

It feels to me that the top logo image is too big, it takes up half of the page ... Then also won't it be better if you remove the border around the table in the middle ... An to be honest that image for "rapid response email" is too much, it bothers me with those flashing lighs ...

Also why doesn't your "find parts" page have the navigation menu up top, so instead of the home link at the bottom rather have the top menu there again.

I would also stick to one colour scheme, then the other pages will load much quicker, because the buttons' images will already be in the cache ... and it will look more complete, it now feels like each page is a different website.

And the pages do seem to take a while to open, that could also be your host, not necessarily your images ...

some of your images up top seem real blurry against your logo, and that looks unprofessional ... rather use a high res stock image ... a good place for that is http://www.sxc.hu

I think you should also add the navigation menu to the "shopping cart" page ....

It would also be good fo SEO if you add text links in all your pages otherwise the searchbots won't find all your pages ...

This site downloaded A OK for me. It downloaded in like 1 second (I have a cable modem). I think it looks very professional. The graphics are very good, and the user interface/navigation bar is extremely easy to use and to see.

It looks so well done, I can't think of anything I would add to it or subtract from it. It serves its purpose well.
