    I'm sad from my own selfish perspective because Hexus is my favourite tech site but I appreciate that nothing lasts for ever.

    I'm very grateful for all the great reviews and news articles and I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

    Sad to see you and Hexus go. Everyone else has said what I think already. Hexus has bee my no. 1 goto tech site for a very long time and I will really miss the Hexus style. I like reading stuff at my own pace - rather than watching content. Thanks and bye.

    Wow the site is closing? Sorry to see you go

    Big respect though for not just selling it out to some company who will keep it going without proper content and just milk it for advertising revenue - better to close than that.

    Thanks for all the great content over the years!

    All the best guys, you have been a cornerstone of my passion and ultimately supported by career as well here in the UK. Thanks for all the fantastic reporting.

    Give us some means of knowing what the new website will be. Maybe get a post on OC3D or Kitguru.

    Best,

    DK

    Thank You! This website was special to me and it will be missed. I made a lot of choices based off the knowledge I got from Hexus and learned so much along the way.

    Cheers!

    I haven't posted on here for a long time, but still read the website occasionally and I've always thought Hexus to be one of the most trustworthy sites when it comes to news and reviews.

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

    I’ve been thinking for the past few hours what to say, but I don’t think I can put the gratitude and memories I have of this place in words.


    When I think back on my teens, where I was most impressionable by peers, Hexus forums stood out above others as a place to have a well thought out, considered and engaging debate on all things tech and life.

    Individuals such as the later peterb (rest in peace) and, of course, zak33 helped shape who I am today.


    I consider Hexus as my online home; my childhood.


    As countless others have said on here, thank you. For the memories, for the knowledge and for the opportunity to (virtually) meet many awesome individuals.


    I wish you all the best :-)

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

    Bums. This was my go-to website for techie news, and the forums are generally a pretty chilled place. I was finally closing in on 500 posts too, so I could add an avatar

    But hey, all good things must come to an end. Thank you to all involved for a great website, and for all the great competitions too (I never won one, but that's not the point!)

    I'm going to miss Hexus, but I'm also looking forward to seeing how Tarinder & Parm's new site shapes up. Best of luck with it guys.

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

    I bid you a fond adieu, words simply don't express both my shock nor my best wishes for everything in your future.

    Thank you for a very enjoyable 12 years since I found Hexus and the brilliant community contained within, and for the knowledge gleaned during my time residing here at my favourite tech site. I also wish Tarinder and Parm the best of luck in new endeavours, and look forward to migrating across. Seems to be a month for pastures new, how exciting!

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

    Woahhhh! Blimey did not see that one coming at all. My browers on the various PC's, laptops and tablets are all set in the bookmarks bar with, in order Anandtech, Toms Hardware, Hexus and Kitguru, before going on to the Facebooks and other stuff. I've been following all of them since they formed I think and have always rated Hexus highly.
    I'm assuming that coming to the age of 40 is telling you to do something else. I hope that what ever you are going on to works out at least as well as Hexus has, all the best.

    Phrontis.

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

    It definitely feels like the end of an era for the UK tech-site scene. We lost The Inquirer two years ago, and now Hexus. Ah well. Time waits for no-one.

    I'll always have good memories of this place. Particularly PSU reviews - I think Hexus was one of the first places to do PSU reviews that looked at actual useful characteristics of the PSU, like ripple and efficiency. There's more places doing that now, but it was certainly a novelty back in the day.

    Best of luck to Tarinder & Parm with their new endeavours, and good luck to David with whatever he decides to do next.

    Very sad to read this. Hexus has been the only tech website I habitually read on a daily basis. Not only has it been trustworthy and informative, it is nice to read without being bombarded with adverts.

    Best of luck with whatever you go onto next.
