HardwareZone.com has taken huge strides in moving up to its current status as a dominant voice in the regional I.T media channel. Our roots can be traced back to May 1998 when it all began as Singapore Overclockers’ Group (SOG), a simple but bustling enthusiast website distinguished for dishing out scores of reviews that are close to the hearts of the highly informed group of readers.
Fueled by the phenomenal success made possible by our cherished readers, Singapore Overclocks’ Group then seized the opportune moment to expand its portfolio of services and influence by encompassing price guides, discussion forums and classified ads among many others. It was at this momentous juncture when Singapore Overclockers’ Group was strategically restructured and officially christened as HardwareZone.com in August 1998.
Growing from strength to strength, HardwareZone.com has evolved with time and matured from a hobbyist site to a tech-site that has since become synonymous with professional, unbiased and thorough reviews of of a wide variety of products in the computer components, consumer electronics and communications segments. From a modest 5 million page views a month in 2001 to a stirring 45 million with over 1.6 million unique visitors from all over the globe, the strong growth is a humble recognition of the appeal HardwareZone.com commands in a highly competitive industry. Our goal is to connect I.T to not just the technically inclined computing enthusiasts, but also to I.T professionals and casual consumers alike. Chief reason of our success can be attributed to our principle formula of offering a broad array of engaging content and services, all of which can be relied upon in assisting readers in their next I.T purchase.
Never a media entity to shy away from challenges, competitions and the volatile pace of the I.T industry, country specific editions of HardwareZone.com were launched in 2003 as a way of reaching out to our readers in the region by providing localized news content and price guides that are intimately pertinent to each country of origin. Till date, HardwareZone.com has its presence firmly planted in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines with the formation of Indonesia and Thailand not too distant from becoming a reality.
To value-add our highly regarded readers and faithful members, HWZ DMClub (Deluxe Membership Club) was launched in April 2005. This premier membership card is the first and only one of its kind in Singapore to offer both I.T and Lifestyle privileges and is the key to a host of exclusive services, perks and special discounts.
