This decision was made by Amazon
This difficult decision is part of a plan our parent company [Amazon] shared earlier this year. The site will remain active until April 10th, with the editorial team still working on the reviews and looking forward to publishing one of our best pieces. Every one of our employees was a reader and fan of DPReview before they started working here, and we are grateful for the communities that have formed around the site. Thanks for your support over the years.
Best regards, Scott Everett
DPReview.com closes after 25 years, but before that the resource promised
The DPReview resource was founded in 1998 by Phil Askey, he is one of the most authoritative and expert in his field today. The decision was made by Amazon, which has owned DPReview since 2007, with the resource’s editorial team operating independently.
A year ago, Amazon announced the reduction of more than 18 thousand employees of the company. Then layoffs also affected DPReview, but in the course of further cuts, Amazon decided to close an expert resource that is not a priority for the company.
