    What Makes a Hardware Review Site
    There are many different types of hardware review sites that cover a wide range of products.  Some are professional sites while others are of a hobbyist variety.  Those sites can cover enthusiast topics, gaming news and overclocking topics.  The key difference between them is the target audience and the kind of traffic they pull in. 

    In this segment Dennis and Darren discuss how they got started doing product reviews and what they did to get where they are today.  Later in the segment Darren asks some hard hitting questions related to what makes a review site and how Ninjalane is different than some of the other sites you may find on the web.

    They also talk about what makes hardware review sites different from the reviews you may read on Amazon or Newegg and why those user generated comments can often be more damaging than reading an impartial review from a professional.
