Benchmark Reviews Has Moved To WordPress CMS!

You are viewing our archived website, retired after six years and 15,000 published articles. There are still plenty of good reviews and helpful guides to be found here, which is why we're keeping this site online. If you'd like to stay up to date, visit the new site at http://benchmarkreviews.com/

Back on March 2007 our website was published on the Joomla! (1.x) content management system. There have been many attempts to move the site into newer versions of the Joomla! CMS, but the platform often restricted our migration. It's been six years since we released our first review, and a new look was long overdue.

CES 2012: Razer Fiona Tablet Project
Featured Website News

As you can imagine, tablets were everywhere at CES 2012. They ranged in size from under 7" to over 10", from Andriod 2.1 to Ice Cream Sandwich to Windows 8. There was even an Android watch. But no matter how many tablets I saw, they were all pretty much cut from the same die; even the waterproof ones in the fishtanks. They were all built on SOC processors ranging anywhere from single- to quad-core designs from either Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Texas Instruments, Samsung or some other manufacturer. None of them had much potential in the world of x86 gaming. None of them except for one. Here at Benchmark Reviews, I'm pretty excited about Razer's Project Fiona.

CES 2012: Belkin Rebranding and New Wireless Products Debut
Featured Website News

At CES 2012 there seems to be a common, overarching theme amongst many of the exhibitors; connecting all aspects of your life. There are thousands of new products on the show floor that try to make everything you do throughout your day connected through mobile devices, peripherals, and the internet. I've seen door locks that you unlock from your smartphone, blinds that can be shut from the other side of the country and, of course, plenty of SmartTVs. Belkin, a huge name already in networking, unveiled their own rebranding CES. They have a new logo and a whole line of new products aimed at connecting all the various parts of your busy life.

MacWorld Expo 2011 Show Coverage
Featured Website News

MacWorld Expo, the annual gathering of the Apple faithful, has been a regular event since the first San Francisco show in January, 1985. As a Mac programmer, I attended that show, and every one since then up through the early 2000s. After I transitioned to Java and Web development, the computer I used became less important, and the 2003 show was the last I attended until this year. The 27th annual MacWorld Expo was dramatically different from what I remembered.

World Ranked overclockers from North America and Latin America have assembled to compete using Intel's high-end X58 platform and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 GPU for a seat at the global final in Taipei, Taiwan.

Microsoft CES 2011 Keynote Address Overview
Featured Website News

Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, has given the opening keynote address for CES for the last three years. Some have said that this year's address clearly shows that 2011 should be last year that Microsoft opens the show. The Microsoft CEO had a lot to say on Wednesday, January 5th as the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow was opened. A lot to say, that is, but not a lot to reveal. That might be a tough sell for audience members expecting news of grand new devices or, the bread and butter of this year's CES, a tablet. In this piece, one of Benchmark Review's editors shares his thoughts on Microsoft's CES 2011 keynote address.
