    Thank you for all the years of news, insight and reviews Hexus! Seems crazy to think that I've been visiting pretty much every day for over 20 years at this point
    Best of luck with your future endeavors!
    Matt.

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…

    There are only 2 websites I bother going to everyday, BBC for news and sport and Hexus so that I know what is going on in the world of tech.

    How am I supposed to pass the time at work now!?

    On a serious note, there are few places I trust to test and review products in a broadly neutral manner and this was certainly up there.

    I don't purchase many tech items without checking the Hexus reviews first. It will be missed but thanks for all the work over the years.

    That was some unexpected news! Like some others have mentioned, Hexus and the forums are prominent in my bookmarks bar and amongst a handful of sites I visit regularly for updates. It's pretty much the only forum I still bother with too, I find the community here is generally more mature than many other places. That's not to say we don't have the odd healthy debate, of course!

    I'm also wondering about the nature of the change - will the Hexus name and content carry across, or is it a complete fresh start? It would be nice to see the partnership with Scan continued too, not just the free delivery (though that is much appreciated and nudges me towards using them over competitors a lot of the time) but some of the other exclusives it brings.

    I'd be sad to see Hexus as an entirety get torn down - there has been a wealth of content and information both on the site and forums that remains useful.

    In any case, all the best to OP, Hexus staff and the community as a whole! I hope to see you all after the move!

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…

    I've used Hexus for over half of my life, have met several people from here, still play video games with MadduckUK on a weekly basis and have done for over a decade now.

    I got to do a few reviews around 2009-2010, which allowed me to cut my teeth and work for a different company for the past 4 years. This place absolutely helped feed my love for tech.

    Been a great website and a fantastic forum. It's a shame it's coming to an end but it'll certainly be exciting to see what happens on Tarinder and Parm's new website.

    Thanks for everything guys! Especially the help I received when going through a lot of stuff in my teenage years.

    I am soooo sorry to see you stop publishing the Hexus guide as I have very much enjoyed your content over the years. I wish you a happy and healthy retirement.. Look forward to hearing from Tarinder and Parm as to how and when they will continue to keep us in the loop on technology changes and achievements. All the very best to you David and thank you.

    Good luck for the future mate.

    As you say "all good things come to an end".

    Thanks for al the hard work, something that's quite easy to forget (IE. how much work it takes running any sort of WEB site).
    Live long and prosper.

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…

    Thank you for everything David. It's been a blast - and the end of Hexus is such a shame to have to contemplate. Hope Tarinder and Parm can bring everything that made this site so readable to the new one. And yes, if the Scan connection comes with it, even better.

    Best of luck everyone, see you soon

    Thank you, 'tis a real shame.

    But I don't understand why the parent company would close down the websites. Why not sell the assets on to another publisher like Anand did with anandtech.com? If the sites are struggling to make revenue surely they could do what TechPowerUp have done and self-host advertising that can't be bypassed by adblockers, look at subscription models (patreon etc.) or even crowd funding? Seems like something else has happened behind the scenes...

    Re: Cheer up! It’s not the end of the world…

    Very sad news but thank you for everything. And thank you especially to the community all these years; there were some great discussions that I truly learned a lot from and not just about tech. I have taken it for granted for probably 15 years or more now since I started reading articles here as a teenager so this place has definitely helped shape who I am in many ways. This is something that I never really contemplated could happen and really makes me start to feel old that something I grew up with will be gone.

    Where am I supposed to go now? Tarinder and Parm's hip new venture better not be on Tiktok or something, I don't think grandpa here is ready for that.
