I stopped buying PC magazines about 2 years ago. They never seem quite sure\nof their target audience and whenever there was a group review of something\nI knew a little about it always seemed a little flawed, making me wonder\nabout taking their advice on things I dont know so much about.\n\nThey are also expensive! I would be tempted if for example their reviews\nwere written by respective specialist forums/websites (eg StorageReview,\nCdFreaks etc), but it always seems like someone in the office gets picked\nat random to learn about a bit of hardware in one week and write a group\ntest.\n\nI did buy a computer Shopper last month because it had the excellent\nAcronis Partition Expert 2003 on the cover disc. (This is better than\nPartition Magic IMO and correctly recognises some Linux partitioning\nschemes unlike PM).. anyway the DVD Writer review in there is awful and\nbased soley on burn speed and nothing else. So I'll keep casting my eye\nover the cover discs but the contents leave much to be desired.
