How We Review

Revised on 11-10-2004

Most of the items we get our hands on are purchased for our clients use. We want the best for our clients so we search the web just like you do for items that other reviewers have played around with. After gathering our notes, we'll head off for the computer store. Then it usually ends up here with our own personal comments.

We test it using common benchmark programs like WinBench from ZDnet and 3DMark from MadOnion. We also incorporate a good old fashioned stop watch for testing boot up times and so on.
