I have been reading Maximum PC for over 8 years now and have tried every computer magazine that I could find. This is the only one I have ever re-subscribed to. They will not accept compensation for their reviews of products from manufacturers and are therefore brutally honest. You can count on what you are reading to be fact. They stay on top of what is coming in the future as far as computers and components. Truly a lot of useful information in every issue. I would not however, pay the extra price for the CD included version of the magazine. All of the software that is on the disc is freely available on the Internet and is listed in the current month issue of the magazine. There is way too much content to list in this review but, trust me; if you are in to computers at all, you will love this magazine.

      Maximum PC magazine is a good magazine for amateur to intermediate people. It has all basic topics covered up...a good magazine to read when you just want updates...covers breadth quite well.

      Maximum PC magazine offers in-depth reviews and previews of new hardware with loaded of test results. This will be too much for any average or below PC user. A least a dozen reviews a month on PC hardware.

      The Best Computer Magazine Available

      By Masseym

      from U.S.

      Maximum PC (non-disc version) magazine has replaced PC World and PC Magazine as THE magazine for the PC industry. In-depth component analysis and reviews give it a powerful advantage above its competitors.

      Maximum PC is the one mag I *ALWAYS* renew

      By Bryan

      from Mansfield, TX

      Maximum PC is the one PC-related magazine I've renewed, year after year, for many years now. The editors and writers really know their stuff. I find something helpful in every issue, from the perfect settings & software to rip audio CD's to mp3's, to in-depth comparisons and benchmarks on the latest video cards. Every piece of hardware that goes in a computer gets reviewed in Maximum PC. With a name like Maximum PC, one would expect the magazine to focus solely on the best of the best, which usually translates into the most costly. The editors at Maximum PC understand that not everyone has an unlimited budget, so they also provide helpful advice, reviews, and articles on hardware for the budget-conscious among us. Regular columns include the Quickstart news section, which gives news snippets on a variety of current happenings in the computer industry. Byte rights is a fairly recent addition to the magazine that discusses various legal issues, generally revolving around the often thorny DMCA and fair-use issues computer users need to be concerned about. The Doctor is a top-notch technical help section with user-submitted letters to the Maximum PC.

      Best Computer Magazine

      from US

      I've been hooked since issue #1 of Maximum PC. I get over half of my PC-related technology information from this resource. Anyone who builds, upgrades, or maintains PCs would be well-served by this magazine.
