I like the loss of frames;
The new top graphic/nav is much cleaner looking than the old.
The italic/bold "To delight our customers" looks distorted to me

Going into the products section, the model# fonts look blurry, the manufacturer names at the top run into the left nav.

The one thing that bugs me more than just about anything is a text-list nav menu with no sort of seporator, or hover effect; this makes it a pain to make sure I am on the right link before I click.

Overall the new layout is an improvement over the current.

You really need to change some of the tags and text, from a marketing standpoint anyway. Otherwise a good improvement.

This looks much better to me. No drop shadows! Functional and corporate. Good

nice looking business site, good work

I would make the mouse hover overs more obvious with a change of button or link colour, if you look in the IE status bar you can see it links to a page, but visually there is little indiciation

good luck

I like the change but I would still make some adjustments....

For one... I am using 1024x768 resolution and I see a white space on the left of the welcome sign... Secondly, I would change the dalcon logo and maybe add more blue to it to better go with your site design

Same here,
I'm on the other comp I have,
and I see some space to to
the right side of the page..
I have to scroll to the right
to see the bottom 'term and
conditions'.

Except that, everything looks
good.

Good use of CSS and formatting, I like the colors and I like the fact that I could find things with realtive ease, Quick download.

Italic letters seem a little too jaggy

I would use a hand cursor on the links on the top instead of an I-beam. Also, I would increase the contrast on the nav bar on the left by making the background a lighter color. The homepage could use some more content.

Different customers got different markups... basically it, and will still be the go, but by default will be Retail pricing.

The design is perfect for your concept but why do you use java links instead of direct links?

Its nice and much better than the previous one.

but the menu bar: the space is too little between the links.
the top image is nice, but on the left side looks kind of empty

but good work.

Java linking becuase I'm using a iFrame for the body section.... I got complaints from the owners about the entire page reloading each time a link was followed. I streer away from making the page a frame set, so just used an iFrame.
