Ready Made Websites - Pros? Cons?

I came across a site selling ready made websites. Are these any good?
(ready made sites that is)
Some of them I saw would be great content sites
What would be the drawback on ready made sites?

Thanks,
Randy

I'm going to take a wild stab and say NO. Better to take a couple months and learn how to do things slowly and right on your own. Knowledge is power. Power is freedom.

Yep, I agree with Adrian. I've seen lots of really crappy examples of "ready made optimised" sites.

Ready-made sites and website templates can be useful as a starting point when building your site, but they're rarely a time-saver, and they're not usually any easier. You still have to change things to make them your own, and you often need to re-jig navigation systems and create new graphics yourself.

It's much easier to create it yourself from scratch because at least you know what everything is and where it should go. If you have to spend your time tweaking someone else's stuff, or trying to modify things, breaking them and spending time fixing them again... well. Like Adrian said, you'd be better off spending that time learning how to do it right.

Regards,
Mark
