Other Independent Hardware Sites
I call "independent hardware sites" those information resources that are
provided by neutral third parties for the good of the Internet community, as opposed to
those provided by companies that are either manufacturing or selling hardware or software.
The site you are reading right now falls into this category. Here are some other sites I
think you should check out if you like this site:
- Anand's Hardware Tech Page: A very good
general hardware site containing reviews and information on the latest hardware. Anand's
specialty is hardware reviews, and he updates his site frequently.
- Ars Technica: A great site that
contains the latest news on hardware and computing, reviews, guides and more. I visit this
site regularly to read up on "what's new" in the computer world.
- CaseyNet: A new hardware site including
industry news and reviews.
- Dan's Data: A new hardware site covering
a variety of topics.
- Dave's Guide to Buying a Home
Computer: A useful site that provides general information on PC hardware and
covers most of the issues related to choosing a PC and dealing with the pitfalls of
- Fun Things To Do With A 486: A
somewhat whimsical collection of ideas regarding what to do with that old 486 you have
- The Hand-Me-Down PC:
A very informative on-line book dealing with general PC issues and especially with
- The High-Performance PC Guide:
This is a good general hardware site, including reviews on and explanations of various
components. Il y a aussi une version
- Index @ Materiel:
This is not an independent hardware site in its own right, but rather an index to hardware
reviews on many of the other sites listed in this section. This is the English version of
this French web site, but there's still a fair bit of French to be found on these pages.
C'est la vie! :^)
- MaximumHardware.com: A very nice
review and performance web site that has been around longer than most.
- The Motherboard Homeworld: A very
good site containing lots of information on not just motherboards but various other parts
of the PC.
- Real World Technologies: Formerly a
hardware retailer, RWT is now focusing on providing the latest news and views on the PC
and technology world. It approaches the subject from more of the viewpoint of the industry
professional than many of the other hardware sites.
- Scott Wainner's System Optimization Guide:
One of the oldest PC hardware sites around, it contains a wealth of information on various
hardware topics, specializing in the topics of benchmarking and overclocking.
- Sharky Extreme: A very good general
hardware site with news and reviews that is rapidly gaining in popularity.
- The Storage Review: A real need in
the hardware review web site world has been recently filled by this site: it focuses on
performance reviews and technology news related to storage devices, particularly hard disk
drives. Too much attention is paid by many PC fanatics to minute differences in
performance between motherboards and not nearly enough to the performance contribution of
this critical system component.
- System Logic: A new independent
hardware site featuring news and reviews.
- Tom's Hardware Guide: One of the
first PC hardware sites, Tom has become a bit of a legend in Internet hardware circles.
This site contains lots of information on hardware, overclocking and benchmarking.
- UncaMilty's Web Site: A new site which
will focus on limited reviews and other topics. The author has also written a useful
article that reviews some other review sites.
- Your Basic Hardware Page:
A relatively new and growing general hardware site catering to amateur computer users and
