ChileHardware is one of the largest Spanish written hardware review sites. It was founded by Christian Montero (Sir Max), Felipe Figueroa (Amenadiel) and Juan Pablo Adaro (Zuljin), in January 2004 as a way to help and show people new technologies. Since then it has become perhaps the largest Spanish written, South America based computer sites, covering mayor IT tradeshows, daily news, first hand hardware reviews and candent columns.
In 2006 the site had a big restructuration, after which Montero and Adaro decided to leave the project to focus on their own careers. Figueroa was left in charge, and long time reviewer Juan Francisco Diez, became his right hand. Later that year, ChileHardware launched a gadget spinoff, called TecnoSquad, based on the growing success of consumer electronics and other weblogs like Engadget and Gizmodo. The spinoff formula was repeated during 2007, giving birth to BotonTurbo, a videogaming/console oriented weblog.
From those days, ChileHardware has won the respect of industry leaders, specialized media and hardware manufacturers. From being a small hobby site, it became one of the most respected hardware websites in the internet and receives thousands of readers everyday from all over the world.
