The article you are reading now is supposed to summarize HWzone.
|HWzone - Ten years of making|
Wait a minute. But we just started!
10 years have passed and it feels like it all started only yesterday…
As if only yesterday "hardware site" was synonymous with "does not exist" in the Israeli market, when few Israelis even knew that such a field existed - and even those who knew, spent their time on leading hardware sites from exile: Anandtech, Tom's hardware, And their friends.
2001 was the year it all started.
A year when the computer market began to gain momentum. Pentium 3, remember, it's the CPU that dominated the market at the time, Intel She tried to push Her new Pentium 4, to fight a competitor who suddenly "popped out of nowhere and overtook her in a round", AMD), Video cards with support for "XNUMXD" have become a regular component in computer specifications, hard drives have grown more and more, and if their volume was still not enough for someone - then he could also buy Burning home disks - At a relatively sane price, compared to what it was in the past.
A year in which people, even in Israel, have discovered that the world of computers is becoming similar to the world of cars - with a price range and models that can range in size from 10 times or more. You can buy a computer for NIS 1,000, and you can buy a computer for NIS 10,000! So what exactly is the difference? Oh, good question. The difference, is what actually created the hardware sites market.
Sites whose essence was first and foremost - to know. Get to know the market, master all the technical details, stand on the differences between the different products, and know how to choose the most suitable product for the task, each task. The additional essence of hardware sites, was to pass this knowledge on.
News, professional testing of equipment, comparisons, guides, opinion pieces, and of course forums - the same communities of surfers who help each other. Answer questions, recommend, warn, and simply - enjoy.
|Pretty cool for 2001, is not it?|
The site is dedicated to raising the awareness of computers in Israel and making the Israeli user more intelligent and aware.
It may sound boisterous, but it is the truth.
Apparently this is the time and place to thank everyone who was with us and helped make the HWzone Why he is today, and personally and unique to a number of people who were with us at the very beginning and took an important and significant role in the first period of the site, which helped us to bloom the wilderness in the early days of the site, and down the road. Among them: Kobi Hasson, Yuval Ravid, Uri Solimani, Nitzan Zifman, Noam Eliahu, Dan Eidelman, Guy Ziskind, Dan Merchins, Ronen Groisman, Mor Shoval, Itai Simon, Yours truly Omri Amos and many more.
If someone feels I've forgotten him, my sincere apology. The full list of all the team members who have been partners in the progress of the site over the years is certainly long, and you want to finish reading this article before we celebrate the second decade 🙂
However, it is important for me to thank all section managers, team managers, news reporters, review reporters, articles and guides, forum managers, and all the people who invested, donated,HWzone Turn from a nice little site without pretentious ambitions - into what it is today.
