DVHARDWARE - The making of
The very first iteration of DVHARDWARE dates back to July 2002. Almost two decades ago now -- amazing how fast time flies by. At first, the site was called DarkVision - it was all in Dutch and we published general news, tech news, and even some sports news. DVHARDWARE started in Dutch because the site is based in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking region of Belgium.

Originally envisioned as a web portal, the DarkVision name was the result of a couple of hours of brainstorming. After a couple of weeks, DarkVision became more and more tech-oriented and it evolved into a technology news & reviews website. By the end of summer 2002, we switched to English to be able to reach a much bigger readership and somewhat later the name changed to DV Hardware.

Together with the rollout of a major site redesign in 2021, the styling of the website's name has been changed to DVHARDWARE.

I received my first PC in the early 90s - it was a 386 with an HDD under 100MB and a monochrome CRT display. Since then a lot has changed in this amazingly fast-moving computer world, I've moved from K5 to Pentium 3 to Pentium 4 to Athlon 64 to Core 2 Duo, and so on.

You can find me on Facebook.
