Seems pretty cool. The design is very simple, but that isn't necessarily bad. It is easy on the eyes. You might make an about link, or some link which explains exactly the type of products this site features. I am assuming you display the latest and coolest gadgets that are out or are coming out.

I am sure you are working on this, but I would definetely recommend you add a great deal more. From what I can tell there are 3 tabs which show 2-3 items each. There are a total of 8 items on your entire site from what I can tell.

Its a descent start though.

A little too plain for my taste. Perhaps more colour and a new logo?

It just strikes me as a "As seen on TV" type of product website at a glimpse.

I am also a fan of better logo's, but for some reason I can't seem to create a logo 'cool' enough! :) I like the layout of the page, it really does bring out the color schemes you used. Blue on white is a personal favorite of mine, so you caught my eye. I mentioned this in my other post not to long ago, I said that 'empty' space should be tended to. I myself am trying to fix 'empty' space. In other words, the <td>'s that you have on the left and the right have a lot of white space, is there any way that you can fix that? Well, other than that stuff. Kudos!

I like it, a very simple layout lets the users consentrate more on your content which is very important with this type of site. I would say make a few more pages that could be usefull to the user....

Simple layout which is a good idea with ecommerce.

But there's no statement as to who you are, etc. I wouldn't buy from a site where I didn't know who I was dealing with.

Yes this site appears to be very simple and I think there should be some way of getting to know who the buyer is buying from considering the price of your items.. :D.... and one more thing DAM I cant afford any of that stuff! lol You need to add more products.... one question... have you sold anything yet??

Firstly love the site simple and clean is what I think more web sites should be.

I read through the legal statements at the bottom and think they should be changed a little. Not sure what I'm not good with that sort of thing.

Love the disclaimer "WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND" and then you also have a return policy. If I was reading this and was interested in a product I would not buy. Maybe word it diff.

Have to be careful as you don't know how many customers would have bought had the wording been slightly diff.

the look of the site itself is very pleasing. Could have a little more depth in the look such as coloring but that is just personal preference. The look doesn't detract from what you are selling either.

good luck nice site..

Very simple design but that's actually what I like about the site. Great product descriptions and pics and thats really what I am concerned about. Obviously you need more items and it has been mentioned in previous posts but thats pretty much my only big concern about how succesful it will be. My favorite part is no ads! Build up a product base and you have a winner.

You could probably move the shopping cart link that is on the right to either the left side or somewhere in the header. Right now you have a lot of white space beneath either side of the page. If you consolidate to one side or the other, that will leave more room for the main content of the page.

Clean layout. A bit too static in my opinion but it does the job for selling the products.
