- "I receive this magazine monthly and always look forward to it!!" in 1 review
This magazine is great! It has different products throughout that reviewers rate along with experts. So you really get a feel for what the average consumer says and what an expert says. I had a year's subscription as a gift and I really liked looking at the electronics and car comparisons.
Great great magazine! Very informative and usually features/covers many of the things I buy. Usually save these for several years and look back at them before buying something new. I have a subscription and it's a great deal!
I'm a big fan of how objective this magazine is. When they test a type of product, they really test a decent range of similar products for a comparison of the entire playing field. I trust their expert opinions when making purchases- everything is laid out in detailed graphics so I have all of my questions answered!
My and hubby and I love this magazine and refer to it anytime we are making a large purchase. Whether a past issue or online, no appliance, vehicle, etc. gets purchased without first checking it out here.
Good for information on appliances. Some other interesting information on small home items. Had a subscription but didn't seem to use the advice as much as I thought.
If you are looking to make a purchase on something especially expensive items look at this magazine or online site first! Its very helpful because most sales people want tell you what purchasers have to say!
Consumer Reports is an awesome, really helpful and informative magazine. They test out products and compare them on performance and price and write reviews so consumers can make educated purchases. They test out everything from cars, big appliances like washers and dryer, electronics like big screen TVs: plasma vs. LEDs, cleaning supplies and vacuum cleaners. It's interesting to see how the different products compare to each other. The most expensive thing, is not always the best! I always read these when I'm purchasing something big like a new TV.
It's not often that I pick up this type of magazine but I have to say I really enjoy this one. I enjoy reading the reviews of products and the comparison between brands. I feel like it is a reliable source for information and you don't get lost looking at a million different reviews on the internet. I will specifically seek this magazine out if I am looking to make a big or tech type purchase.
I receive this magazine monthly and always look forward to it!! Whether it be wine, snacks, appliances or cars, I value their honest ratings. I typically will not purchase a large item without being informed thru the great knowledge of Consumer Reports magazine. I do not always agree with their information. For instance, Dyson vaccuum not rated very high. But I love my Dyson and plan on buying another one when I need to!!
I really enjoy reading consumer reports because they have ratings for a wide variety of products. The reviews are season relevant and contain information that's useful in making purchasing decisions. Also, I like to see how things I've purchased previously are comparing to others products in reviews!
