About Us

So you want to know about DragonSteelMods

This site started out as a little personal site in January of 2005, it was just a place so I could show off my computer mods and other mods. What you see now is the sixth incarnation of the site and on the second host, I think I am finally happy with it…maybe…

The aim of DSM is to provide honest and detailed reviews of gadgets, software, hardware and other ‘consumer electronics’, and to promote a friendly community of like minded individuals.

I want the readers of DSM to be able to trust and value the reviews and know that they are done honestly and truthfully.
