    What PC magazines do you read?

    Just wondering really. Seems there is an limitless number or PC magazines on the newsagent shelves these days. I have a subscription to Custom PC and sometimes read Personal Computer World, PC Extreme, PC Gamer and PC Format. Just wondering what people here read and why.

    I don't bother wasting money on any computer mags, by the time thye hit the shelves a great deal of the info is out of date and has been posted on the internet anyway...so why look anywhere else than Hexus, get all you need, daily up-dates and its better for the environment as it doesn't need x100000 trees to make it

    None. They're all so wide of the mark that you're just wasting your money.

    None, web has information on a daily basis, I trust Hexus reviews as i feel they have no affiliation to any companies therefore reviews and unbiased.

    You get more information about products from the web from actual people that have release boards rather than "review" boards.

    I used to read PC Gamer, although since my pc has become that outdated it cant run most modern games I've stopped. Although i pick it up every now and again if theres something interesting in there - like this month, theres an 8 page spread bout GPL.

    Why do we need PC Mags anymore anyway? With the internet its a lot easier, quicker and cheaper to find unbiased information, which isnt aimed at (and in some cases, written by) the kind of people who think that if you remove a light bulb from a socket with the switch turned on, electricity will leak into the room.
