About us

Real Hardware Reviews came into existence because of our dissatisfaction with the state of the industry. With over two decades of professional review experience between myself and John we know the industry and know what most review sites are testing for in a given sample. We simply disagree with their focus. Most sites do indeed do a professional job at showcasing an item but seem to miss the mark on why most buyers opt for a given model over another. Some sites focus mainly on raw performance (‘best of the best’), others technical feats of prowess (‘innovation’), others still look at aesthetics (‘pretty’). We firmly believe that most people purchase a model not any one of these metrics but on all of them. This is why we spend so much of a review on the overall value of a given model and showing which group of consumers it is a best fit for it. Be it a hundred-dollar model or a ten thousand dollar one, people want to get the most ‘bang for their buck’. This is why we even include a break down of the most critical areas in a given market and their score in each.
