Technology media company Ziff Davis has acquired ComputerShopper.com, a destination for expert, labs-based reviews and comparison shopping of technology products.
Computer Shopper has long been an authoritative voice in the hardware and software industries, initially as a print publication and today as a website attracting over 1.5 million unique visitors per month.
The fifth acquisition for Ziff Davis since the beginning of 2011, ComputerShopper.com gives the fast growing digital media company yet another influential property that plays a critical role in guiding technology buyers in their purchase decisions.
Founded in 1979, Computer Shopper was a Ziff Davis property from 1993-2001 when it was sold to CNET. SX2 Media Labs, which purchased Computer Shopper from CNET in 2006, is now selling it back to Ziff Davis.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Computer Shopper back into the Ziff Davis portfolio as a digital business with a very devoted audience,” said Vivek Shah, CEO of Ziff Davis. “ComputerShopper.com perfectly fits our mission to inform and influence buyers of technology.”
ComputerShopper.com will join PCMag.com, ExtremeTech.com, Geek.com, Toolbox.com and LogicBuy.com in Ziff Davis’ group of owned-and-operated properties.
