The Rating System

This is an explanation of the rating system we use. The maximum rating is currently 5 +'s. A site gets one + for each of the criteria on the left in any order:

These rating are not best/worst prices.

Numbers in brackets e.g. (2) are number of clicks to price list. Less is better.

The Date column [Date/No] indicates whether the page has a recent date of last update listed which we feel is a good idea.

The numbers in brackets (2) are the number of links to get to an actual price list, an extra 0.5 for having to scroll a bit on a page, lower is better for the numbers. (X) indicates no specific price list page.

Warning: Some of these sites are really badly designed. Some are good with easy to find prices. Others are a maze of frames, bad graphics, clashing colors and JavaScript gone crazy. You have been warned.

What counts for points:

  • Clean site

  • Fast site

  • Good content

  • Up to date (visible date)

  • Easy to navigate to prices (Less than 3 clicks, these are numbers in brackets)

Maximum rating is: 5 +++++ (1) [Date]

Minimum rating is: none (4+) [No]

Any sites that do not update their pages for a couple months get moved into the "Moldy" section.
Old sites are checked periodically to see if they have changed their ways.
Sites that do not sell components/peripherals, or have no price info are not usually included.
