The best consumer PC magazine
Member Name: mng70
Advantages: It's a good read!
Disadvantages: You get a CD every issue or should that be a coaster
PC Pro magazine has been going for quite a while now and both it's publication and website are amongst my best viewed sources for computer related information. The magazine is factual, unbiased and brings together both business and home computing seamlessly.
Amongst it's staff are some highly regarded members of the computer fraternity including Jon Honeyball and Barry Collins. Both have there own sections in the magazine and discuss many topics complimenting the magazine.
The A-List is a section that displays the best of each category such as value graphics card, enthusiast graphics card etc. This give the consumer a good idea on what to buy in the future.
Other little sections I like include the part that compares there views with other publications and the views of the PC Pro forum members. The letters section shows a great community spirit and the reviews, whilst not exhaustive are thorough and a pleasure to read.
One annoyance is that there are two editions of the magazine, one with either a CD or a DVD. The DVD version is slightly more expensive than the CD version but offers more content on the disc. My main gripe is that being a computer / internet magazine why do we have a CD at all? We should be able to download any content we need from a secure website.
All in all, I will continue to enjoy my subscription (some good rates out there!) and suggest you give it a try.
Summary: I look forward to it every month
