Welcome to Hardware Insights!

This site was up and running at 1:41AM on Thursday, March 17, 2011. It has come ahead in leaps and bounds since its establishment, with thousands of unique visitors each month. The Hardware Insights team works very hard to review products (including many products which get little or no coverage from other reviewers) and write informative and interesting articles about them. Our purpose-built power supply load tester enables us to carry out very thorough, and in-depth testing – even more so than many other reviewers can deliver. Pavel Bocek (Behemot), the present owner and main reviewer of Hardware Insights, took over the portal in early 2015 and currently writes from Czech republic. He has had years of experience building, modifying, repairing (and occasionally destroying) computers and associated hardware – taking his first computer apart at the age of 15.

Our main focus is on reviewing computer power supplies, followed by computer cases, cooling and other hardware or software. We also repair computer power supplies, uninterruptible power supplies, displays, TVs and sometimes other electronics and write about our patients. On top of that also run ever expanding database of actual output waveforms of inverters of different UPS systems on Hardware Insights. We also occasionally review software, especially some interesting games.

If you have any suggestions, feel free to post them in our forum in the appropriate section.

If you would like to submit a review sample, please contact Pavel Bocek (Behemot) at behemot(at)hardwareinsights(dot)com.
