1-0 out of 5 stars Unreasonable Wait for subscription to start.
I subscribed in late May to MaximumPC and PCGamer. Early July I started getting PCGamer.Still nothing from MaximumPC.I called customer service and they said they had recieved my order June 2nd and to expect my first issue in late September. Thats nearly four months! That is an unreasonable wait relative to the industry standard and clearly outside the stated wait on the order form. I gave one star because the magazine is a good magazine. But at a $8.99 news stand price it is too expensive... so I am left with the choice of spending almost $35 to get the four months worth before my subscription starts (more than the subscription itself) or just missing out on those issue.Very poor customer service.

4-0 out of 5 stars Awaiting Delivery
I know it takes eight weeks and maybe longer but I do appreciate the information that I've gained from store bought "Maximum PC" magazines.I don't build computers but when I do order one, it is nice to be familier with the workings and attributes of the new computer.
1-0 out of 5 stars Plan to get your magazine delivered by the next ICE AGE!
The magazines ordered through amazon take an ETERNITY to be delivered.The estimated time for my delivery was April after I had placed the order in Feb.That's a long enough wait as it is---I ended up receiving it the the end of June!And when I called to complain...the customer service rep explained to me that it was technically within the estimated allowed time for delivery.so bottom line...if you have an urge to order a magazine that may take half a year or so to get to you...then this is the ONE FOR YOU-hands down.I plan on never ordering a single magazine through Amazon again.Definitely don't send a subscription to anyone as a birthday gift- it'll maybe make it in time for the FOLLOWING birthday year..so plan years in advance! ...

It's interesting that they took down my review from months ago, where I gave it 3.5 stars.
4-0 out of 5 stars Read
This quarterly magazine really hits the spot, if you're in its crosshairs. It's a clean miss for others.
5-0 out of 5 stars No true geek should be without a subscription
This fine magazine is a cross between WIRED, American Woodworker, Popular Mechanics and Scientific American.Each issue features four very detailed DIY projects, along with short descriptions and general guides to a few others.Combined with the DIY info, there is the usual mix of opinion articles, political commentary, news summaries, letters, articles about crazy DIY-folk, etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best magazine out there for people in creative environments
I am not an artist, but I work with creatives. In my job as a Product Manager, I am exposed to web design, interactive design and graphic design every day. Reading through the great articles Computer Arts offers every month allows me do a better job as a manager with my product and helps me give my team better direction when it comes to creative decisions.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great magazine.
For the passionate web designer, this is the best magazine out there.Each issue comes with a cd and is packed with useful information.This cost seems a little high - about $70 more than the on the Computer Arts site (after the currency conversion).You can't go wrong when purchasing this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars great tutorials, and a great read every month
This is one of my favorite reads as far as digital arts from the UK, well written the tutorials are the off the hook and they always give you a cd with software to use. And as a graphic artist this is a book you learn by doing which i think is the best way to learn. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Buying a Mac?You should subscribe to Macworld NOW.
No, I'm not a salesman for Macworld -- at least, they're not paying me anything for being one.I only know, as an owner of Macs for over 25 years, that Macworld will repeatedly show you how to do things that (1) you always wanted to do on a Mac, and (2) you didn't know you could do on ANY computer.
4-0 out of 5 stars The Mac subculture's WSJ, People Magazine, and TIME

5-0 out of 5 stars THE ESSENTIAL MAGAZINE FOR THE APPLE MACINTOSH WORLD
Five ESSENTIAL Stars. Macworld Magazine is the one magazine that has it ALL in one convenient place and is absolutely necessary for the Macintosh computer user. Published monthly, it is chock full of articles on and reviews of the latest Macintosh/Apple equipment, software, applications, games, browsers, neat websites, and other essential products and services. From the "FEEDBACK" letters to the editor that have real substance, to an extensive "REVIEWS section covering areas like cameras, camcorders, printers, notebooks, laptops, desktops, CD & DVD recorders, etc.., to the in-depth "SECRETS" covering areas like 'the Working (office or home office) Mac', 'Digital Photo', 'Mobile Mac', 'Geek Factor', the awesome Mac OSX 'Help Desk', and the essential helpmate 'Mac 911', Macworld is the Gold Standard.It even has regular tutorials for the daring Darwin UNIX user, giving the real geeks a literal software tool kit into the inner workings of Steve Job's marvelous computer (only for the most experienced expert user). Even in cases when another magazine has a similar article, Macworld always seems to do it better, probably because it has been at the Mac publishing game longer than any other magazine to my knowledge.

2-0 out of 5 stars Order the UK version
I'm a big player of PC games, but I also love reading and thinking about my favorite hobby. For the past few years I've been living in the UK, but when I come to the US (and now that I live here again) I would pick up the American version of PC Gamer.
3-0 out of 5 stars Why not call itself MMO Gamer?
I subscribe to both PC gamer and PC Gaming magazine. Overall, I think the writing in PC gamer is much more puerile. Like gradeschool kids with a 'girls have cooties' mentality, PC gamer strives to keep this gaming magazine a clubhouse where girls/women need not apply. Captions which critique the amount of cleavage a female character is showing, and discuss getting laid in MMO seem to cater to the teenage boy mindset.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good but Dated
Though I have not received my first edition in the mail yet as my order was placed just five weeks ago (I buy copies at the store until my subscription finally starts)... I figured the magazine without CD's is worth the $2.25 per copy it averages for the subscription.Agree with most... not what it used to be but always nice to get a magazine about games in the mail. Maybe it will become again what it once was... I am an optimist. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars So, so techie for newbies
I had been subscribed to PC World directly for quite a few years. Upon renewing for the next two years, suddenly their subscription department decided to send me two issues monthly and then quitting altogether. There was no way to get a personalized answer out of them, so I quit. 5-0 out of 5 stars In The Know
PC World keeps me up to date with what's new in the industry and gives me lots of helpful hints to improve my computing experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Always relevant; always entertaining and informative
Great magazine for those who are not tech professionals, or who have just started in a tech field, who want to stay on top of the latest products, ideas, and technology news. Good troubleshooting tips for your computer, software programs, and other electronics as well. Loved it so much I decided to order a year's subscription. ***DO NOT ORDER THIS FROM AMAZON. I ORDERED THE MAG SEPT 7TH AND AS OF DEC 3RD I AM STILL WAITING FOR IT. Amazon is a reliable party, however the subscriptions are outsourced to others. If you have a problem with a subscription order, it is not handled through Amazon.*** UPDATE: Finally received 1st issue in late December and the subscription was backdated to continue through Nov 2006. However, if you want quicker delivery, order a subscription elsewhere. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best video game magazine out there
this is the only vg magazine i've ever truly enjoyed. the articles and reviews are unbiased and funny, and the Game of the Month goes to the game taht actually deserves it, not just the 'cool' game for that month. theres so much more to the magazine than just previews and reviews. they have articles relating to everything videogame related, like a monthly article about different jobs in the video game industry. but amazon really has to update the description.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hella Bangin'!!!
Talk about a hella sweeet magazine!I love this magazine, and have been subscribing since I was a little kid of 35 years of age.Bangin' reviews, bangin' cover stories.I like it tons more than other competition, such as GamePro.I highly recommend it!
3-0 out of 5 stars Unbiased Gaming Monthly
This magazine is pompous, overtly critical, and had far too little coverage of this years E3. Issues have become really thin and every issue is really hit or miss. Why then would I recommend this magazine? They are unbiased and will criticize each console and they are rightly justified to do so. I find their reviews to be frustrating since it just seems like they rarely if ever enjoy playing anything at all. Its not the best magazine but its probably the most truthful. It'll help keep any gamer balanced and their coverage of the top three consoles is consistent. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars try it once, it isnt painful.:)
old mac usr, new mac usr, matters not.there is something in this magazine for everyone.and, icreate has a pretty good online usr forum too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Reason for the high price
The high price is predominately due to the shipping costs as this magazine is produced in the United Kingdom.A subscription over there runs about twenty bucks.However, even with the added expense to get this delivered stateside, iCreate is a great looking magazine with excellent editorials.
4-0 out of 5 stars Phantom Magazine
Great magazine couldn't recommend it any higher for anyone starting out with macs. iCreate also introduced a great Pro section in 2005 to delveinto the workings of ProApps such as Final Cut Pro, Photoshop, mDVD Studio Pro etc. Now here's the thing, I'm wondering how the magazine can be available for subscription while the magazine was put on hold late last year. Me, or anyone I know with a subscription haven't recieved the mag for months, and there has been no contact from the people who handle thesubscription despite zillions of e-mails. So be careful, get the full story before you hand over any money!!!!!!!!!!!check the web for similar storries, you will find them ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars MacAddict Not Worth It Anymore
I have Issue #1 and just received the lastest issue (March 06), but I've let my subscription run-out. MacAddict isn't worth it anymore.
4-0 out of 5 stars Comedy relief, fun articles, and short reviews
Not as deep as MacWorld but worth the subscription due to the alternative perspective on software and hardware. Very fun to read with a unique style of writing. The reviews can rarely be spotty with lack of depth as the culprit in some cases. The majority, though, are on target. The best part of the magazine are the unique 3rd party hardware finds. Overall a great addition and enjoyable read.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Funny Geeky Magazine, Dense with Useful Information
needed. It's just as informative as MacWorld but more fun too read. To me MacWorld is like reading a text book while Mac Addict is like learning the same information from a really funny professor.

1-0 out of 5 stars Changes
Change can be good; however, sometimes change can be very bad.Earlier this year PC Mag decided to become a magazine for the masses instead of providing technical information for their longtime dedicated readers.Before the change this was a magazine that I would keep for a year or so to refer back to the content; now I can skim it in 5 minutes and don't feel there is a reason to keep it for any length of time.As a longtime subscriber (20 years) I will not be re-subscribing to the magazine.I wish them luck, but I believe they have lost sight of their subscription base and are chasing a broader base of subscribers that might disappoint them.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is certainly not the same magazine it once was
This magazine took a radical change in direction earlier this year, meaning most reviews prior to April 2006 are essentially reviewing a different magazine.
1-0 out of 5 stars Shell of former self
Please see tj-mccarthy's review elsewhere here; he is, to borrow a phrase from across the pond, spot-on in his comments. Just this week I cancelled my 10-year subscription to PC Magazine. One thing not mentioned elsewhere is that the new editor, Jim Louderback, has dropped the old tagline on the front cover, "An Independent Guide to Technology". I conjecture that the reason for doing so is that this magazine is no longer independent and is, in fact, just a marketing vehicle for various products. If you are like me and you do not like stealth marketing, stay away from this publication. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars pcphoto
A great magazine for digital camera users from beginner to expert. Has great tips and information.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised
I got a subscription to this magazine as a gift and at first glance, thought it was going to be nothing but lightweight glossy fluff mainly meant to push new products.To be fair, there are plenty of lightweight reviews of new products in each issue, but there are also a surprising number of very useful, practical how-to articles-- mainly geared to novice or intermediate digital photographers (like me!).Yes, I've purchased big thick books on Photoshop before, but somehow, I never gotten to far in actually reading those books (maybe too much info for a hobbiest who doesn't need/won't use 1/2 the features in the product?).I recently switched from using Photoshop to using Photoshop Elements, and this magazine seems to be a nice compliment to that software package.In recent issues, I've learned when and how to effectively use RAW vs JPG, how to take better advantage of graduated ND filters, how to use Levels correctly, etc.The contributing editors are all top-rate as are the photographs and examples.I highly recommend anyone with a new digital SLR and/or new PC image software such as PS Elements, to get this magazine.It's well worth the subscription!

3-0 out of 5 stars Sigh..........................
This use to be a swell magazine for the amateur digital photographer.However, for some reason, this year it has gone more "pro"...which means such things as much more talk of Photoshop; more reviews of really expensive cameras and equipment the amateur would never consider buying; and more ads, ads, ads.Even the price has gone up.Last year, I paid $11.97 using an enclosed subscription card in a magazine.This year the cards show $14.97 for a year's subscription.And I received a renewal letter today from the publisher saying I could have a year for $16.97!Gee, thanks. But no thanks.I'm not interested in a "pro" type of photo magazine.There's already enough of them anyway.

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better if less sexist....
I'm a girl gamer and I subscribe to both computer gaming world and PC gamer. I like them both for different reasons. The writing style in computer gaming is entertaining, the length is good, and the articles when actually focused on GAMING is entertaining. What can I do without? There is a LOT of gratuitous T&A in the magazine, (obviously intended to titillate teen boys and lonely computer geeks), but enough already! Do I really need to see a centerfold of a half-naked fairy in order to buy the latest video card?
2-0 out of 5 stars Misleading
Don't be fooled by the coverand description, this is for a magazine only & "NO DVD included', or should I say for a magazine containing mainly adverts for components and games.
5-0 out of 5 stars Hands Down The Best Computer Gaming Magazine
Computer Gaming World has been around since the early 80's and it's always been the best in my opinion.A lot of people think their reviewing style is a bit harsh, but given the price of games and how much garbage is released, you really can't afford not to read reviews before buying.Computer Gaming World gives concise, critical reviews that explain exactly what is good and bad about games on the market.Highly recommended! ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Unfortunate..
It's unfortunate that Dr. Dobbs' is no more the mag. I knew of, 3 yrs. back. Much detoriation in terms of quality of articles published, editorial boards and high amount of advertisements.
4-0 out of 5 stars OK, for the right audience.
The right audience is the grunt in the trenches of today's commercial coding. You've got to deal all the weirdness of Java, C++, a dozen different web technologies all calling themselves THE technology, and lots more. This magazine gives you plenty of ammunition for those tactical assaults on performance, STL, exception handling, networking, and all the other foes you face daily, with plenty of source samples.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not for those trying to stay ahead of the curve
Solid practices fill this journal, but don't go looking for the cutting edge here. This magazine follows a theme every month, August 2004 is Testing and Debugging, not just a hodgepodge of articles slapped together with relevant advertising. In a given issue, the articles range in expertise from simple concepts of HTTP interactions to advanced techniques in runtime monitoring. It does seem to focus on two languages nowadays; C++ and Java.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Current Codes Stay, Older Codes Go
One of my favorite past times happens to be the world of video games. Although many people find different ways to get around them with cheats, the unfortunaet part is that the cheats don't often get used. For a magazine called Tips & Tricks, their magazine constantly is coined with that phrase. Although they have a dead on sense with publishing tips and ways to help you through current games, that isn't the same with older games for the system in their codes section. The magazine constantly changes by reducing the contents of codes for certain games and older systems like the Nintendo Gamecube, the Playstation 1, and the Nintendo 64. Althoough it is good for current and upcoming systems like the Nintendo DS, and the upcoming Wii, many will just have to find other ways to get their cheats than Tips & Tricks magazine.
3-0 out of 5 stars Tricky
As a reader since '97, and a subscriber since '02, this magazine has helped me various times in my hobby of gaming. The magazine offers FAQs and a large collection of codes/cheats for most of the popular consoles and handhelds (there are usually at least three different FAQs). The magazine also offers different departments, reporting on various segments of gaming. Game Previews features upcoming select games along with a release chart; Gaming Gear keeps up with new hardware peripherals and accessories; Online Gamer has news on said subject; Gaming 2 go is for mobile phone games; Sports Desk offers details on the newest sports games; Japan Report shows the goodies the Japanese game players get with their gaming (letting us know how we get shafted if we don't import); Final Fantasy World contains all news on Final Fantasy games; and Collector's Closet lists rare games, music, peripherals, and systems you should look out for if your a collector, or if you own them. Phew! Collector's Closet also has a monthly "Room of Doom" showing some incredible collections (for the geek in all of us). There are also some current departments like Grand Theft Auto: The San Andreas Chronicles, Mega Mania (for Mega Man stuff), and Halo Insider. Those departments are like Final Fantasy World in having some in-depth information on the games, but the Halo and Grand Theft Auto reports are said to be going away soon. There is also some coverage on Video game movies, comics, toys, and some reporting on anime. Quite a bit of stuff for simply "Tips & Tricks." Each department isn't very long, maybe a couple of pages, but are a nice read. Of course the main reason for the magazine's existence are the FAQs. These "strategy guides," though, can be very hit and miss. Many of the recent games featured are action games that could be easily beaten, and many of the FAQs aren't really in-depth enough. If a game has a lot of collectibles, you can pretty much be left without how to find them all. I also recall one time they made a guide for Madden--really ridiculous and a waste of space. This kind of treatment is sort of like Prima or Brady making guides that don't really need to be made, and are a waste of paper. The mag used to have a card you could fill out to tell them what games you would want featured, but now, I dunno who picks the games--as I said, it's very hit and miss. One month a certain FAQ could be a great help in Trauma Center: Under the Knife for the DS, another it could be a waste for King Kong (mulit-platform), or other licensed ware (Fantastic 4 comes to mind). I guess it is diverse in both niche and mainstream games, but I wish the magazine was more...well...just had more. Also, as of writing this, I have yet to see anything on Dragon Quest VIII, Tales of Legendia, or Grandia III since they were released (Role Playing Games, and even Strategy Role Playing Games need to be featured more in this magazine). Oh, but if you need some "strategy" for Full Auto, 24: The Game, and Teen Titans, you'll flip for joy.Also bothersome is the mail section. Quite possibly the worst collection of letters I've ever seen are assembled for response. The input and ramblings of the readers are even worse than in EGM--and that's bad. There is no age limit, so expect a very young crowd to be given an equal voice. Tips & Tricks dosen't even take e-mail for reader responses; only snail mail is used for letters. Of course, another knock may be why buy this kind of magazine if you can get free FAQs and codes online. Well, a defense for that is sometimes the FAQs come out before that spotty gamer can finish his/hers. Also, the ubundance of codes/cheats from one place of reference can be more convienient than hurried online scavaging. This is especially the case in a great giant "Code Book" that is released every year. The great issue contains not only codes/cheats for current gen systems, but occasionally past ones as well. This magazine's basically a crap shoot; some months are great for FAQs, some are worthless. If you have a wide range of tastes in games and in gaming systems, and don't want to keep paying a lot of cash for strategy guides, then I guess this magazine is worth a try. Everyone else should glance at the magazine stand every now and then to see if it's their month for content, and worth the price of purchase. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Serious MS developers need this
People building serious MS apps, the kind where you have to figure out just what "volatile" really means, must subscribe. This is the map to the world they live in. There are lots of ads, covering just about every add-in, add-on, API, component, and service you can imagine, plus some. Do you need to know the difference between clusters, multiprocessor board, multicore, hardware multithreading, and application multithreading? You need this. UI, I18N, .NET, COM compatibility - sooner or later, it's all here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Required Reading for any MS Developer

4-0 out of 5 stars Laptop and mobile solution news but light on independent, indepth research
From a subscription point of view (about $12/yr directly) this magazie is a decent value.While half the information is fluff (looking back - 15 years of innovation, etc.) there is some timely relevant information hard to find easily in a consolidated way.The focus is not just on laptops but mobile solutions - this includes peripherals, PDAs, mobile phones among others.There is some opinion (RIAA vs Sirius) but the focus seems to be vendor/advertiser driven.
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Source of Mobile Product Information
Laptop Magazine is an excellent resource for the mobile professional.The staff has done a great job of reviewing products relevant to those individuals attached to their laptops and related gadgets. Despite the name, the magazine is not merely about laptops but also the tools and strategies for the peripatetic white-collar worker.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good enough
And while this magazine doesn't go into great depth on to which products are the best (you could call it indirect advertising), it does one important job.It introduces you to the newest products and what's out there.Read more
