    I used to enjoy browsing through the old site and the stuff for sale. The new site has auto menu popups that really bug me. First world problems I know but when I'm using TABLED contents option and I'm scrolling down a list of items on the website, I have to move my cursor over to one side of the screen to scroll down. If I don't then the auto highlite intrudes by flashing up a greyed out box covering the pic of the product. I know...first world problems but the new site has small niggly things that add up to a level of annoyance that takes away from just simple browsing to see what's what.

    I know there perhaps isn't an option to do this but is there any access to the old site as well as the new one?

    I'm liking the new site when I compare it to the previous one it does seems outdated and this is what Ocuk needed

    Hi Shovinus, I've just sent a bug report as the reviews no longer show the dates of when a review was issued? Wasn't sure if this was a bug or not but thought you should know.

    was a bit strange clicking on the link and being presented with an in your face page, but i do like the red and blue and some the other colours not bad, menu system is okay, takes a little getting used to...

    all in all from the little use of the site i did its not bad, certainly feels mobile like which isnt always good on a computer, just need to make the forum more compact that little bit with little more contrast to fit in as it looks faded to the vibrant main site.

    Am sure I'm merely peeing in a sea of pee with this comment, but felt compelled to post my opinion (and the rarity of that should underscore my feelings on the matter), but my $0.02 worth is a resounding "NO" re: the new site.

    I thought I'd gone back in time by 10 years to when sites were not UAT'd or optimized for a user experience, but merely an offering of the newest "shiny" that was doing the rounds.

    Massively long time customer and builder and the ease of use is way off compared to the previous iteration. The bombardment of information regarding things I'm not looking for is annoying and... ...well it's all been said I suppose.

    i like the site, my only dislike is the this week only now split in to sections.

    i liked the list of this week only so i could arrange from low to high and then scroll through everything as half the time i'm just looking at the offers on there and may buy something i didn't intend to do so or find something i may use at a good price but now unless i'm looking for certain parts i have to look in each section which i don't have time to do when at work so i dont check everything anymore lol

    Sure it has already been mentioned, but as soon as you open This Week only, click All Products in the top left, you can then sort by price.

    Be nice if sort by price was the default (or saved as an account preference or cookie), same with defaulting to all products.

    Were customers asking for more power features?

    If you are in the business of selling things it should be as easy as possible requiring the least amount of effort. ;)

    I'm unable to place an order, i go to checkout my basket. Once i get to the next screen i click to "Pay with Amazon" and i get a pop up with an Amazon error saying that there has been the following error:

    Error Summary
    400 Bad Request
    Unknown client_id
    Request Details

    I then have to log back into my account to carry on with the order, i've then tried to change the payment method all that happens is the webpage reloads into my basket again, having to once again log back into my account.

    It feels a bit like Windows 7-> Windows 8...

    Yep, taking a while to get used to the new site. Some things work better, others seem more awkward, but I'm slowly getting used to finding everything.

    I don't like the new layout at all.
    It looks cluttered and messy and is much hard to navigate.

    Looks like a re-branded version of Caseking's website. They are both owned by the same entity I believe so no surprise.

    Similar to this, how do I link my forum account to my account on the shop site?
