What is

Open Letter to all Readers and Vendors:

My name is Uryaen. I am a linguist, grammarian, former full contact martial artist, video game designer and player, Cedia Level home theater enthusiast, A/V calibration expert, trained auto salesman, and now, an author of a very unique hardware/software/media evaluation platform.

Ryan 2012



This site is a full function testing lab, and our primary focus is on high end PC gaming hardware and related media. Evaluations will be reasonably thorough, but not so much so as to become boring. This site is meant to be a companion to my YouTube Channel, and a standalone "Evaluation" Site. My contributing editors and I will be publishing extended evaluations of a wide variety of consumer and professional products, as well as full resolution video. 

What we will be evaluating

Computer and Console games, Computer and Console hardware, Home Theater equipment, Blu Ray movies, mobile devices, and high end toys such as 1/6 scale figures, high end professional photography equipment, and anything else appropriate to this audience. On occasion we will feature low cost but quality toys and hardware as appropriate. 

What we will not be evaluating

Regular DVDs, most mobile games, phones, and other assorted consumer electronics for the most part. Why? While our vendor relations build over time, we need to keep the focus on things which will be of interest to the widest audience.

Why Uryaen?

High Integrity, high quality content, usually with a unique viewpoint, and all original photography and videos.
