European Hardware Awards – Finalists announced

The European Hardware Awards highlights the very best hardware available in the European market with the winners being announced on the opening day of Computex in Taipei. Now that the Editorial Panel has completed its initial deliberations, we’re ready to announce the nominees for the European Hardware Awards 2015.

On 24th April, KitGuru announced the launch of the European Hardware Awards. Since then, a group of Europe’s largest independent hardware review sites has been discussing which products will be considered as finalists. That list has now been completed and you can see the full line up below.

The extensive evaluation and voting process takes place throughout May, with the winners being announced during a special presentation in the Elegance Lounge (4F) of the Taipei International Convention centre (TICC) at 8pm on 2nd June 2015. The TICC is located right next to the Grand Hyatt hotel, in the shadow of the iconic Taipei 101 building.

Leo Says 37: Honest Reviews, The Verge VOX takedown BitWit, W3175X, ROG Dominus, AMD profits!

Leo is back after a brief hiatus and this week he has a lot of topics to discuss. He discusses the post I made a few weeks ago as well as VOX Media taking on BitWit for a takedown on their 'build a PC video' from months ago. It failed. Leo also discusses Intel's new W3175X £3,000 processor, the ROG Dominus motherboard, G.Skill's new high capacity memory kits and many other topics. It's a good video, even by LEO's standards.
