We're hearing reports from visitors that this site (http://www.cwmetro.com) is loading slow but havent been able to replicate it, despite viewing on every browser and multiple different computers.

Do you notice any significant lag in load time? Please advise. Thanks.

Well it could be a little faster, I guess. I can tell you that your images are way too big in terms of file size. 120KB for that small icon (http://cwmetro.com/wp-content/uploads/printersales.png)? Overkill! That could be around 10KB, I guess. You should revise all your graphics and re-export them if necessary. A good rule of thumb is to have images not bigger than 50KB (unless you’re really intending to show off large high quality images).

I agree with VIPStephan. 120KB for an image, even a big one, is too much. Reduce the image size.
