IS YOUR COMPUTER DRIVING YOU NUTS

AdvantagesSuperb value, Cover Disk full of excellent utilities and thoroughly entertaining.

DisadvantagesNone whatsoever

"...I would have to say PC Answers is about the best around. I used to buy this magazine quite regularly, but recently I have tended to concentrate on the many Internet related magazines, seeing as though I seem to spend my whole life on the Internet. That was until last week, whilst out shopping I noticed PC Answers sitting there on the shelf, I gave it a quick look over and decided to buy it, I gave the shop assistant my £4.99 and went home to read ..."

A Questionable Magazine

AdvantagesAwash with useful information

DisadvantagesPricey unless you subscribe

"I love reading PC magazines and have to limit myself or my bookshelves would be full and my pockets empty. I am an engineer and in my early days I did fault finding which involved finding answers to tricky problems. If you have a PC with the Windows GUI then you will be heavily involved in trying to solve tricky problems. This is Bill Gates mission in life. When I first started using a PC at home I was gratified to find a magazine called PC Answers ..." Read review

For Answers its Pc Answers

AdvantagesLots of usefull info, few Ads

Disadvantagesfew ads mean a higher price than some other mags

"I buy Computer magazine regulary. PC Answers is one of thoses which I now buy every month or at the very least borrow each copy every month. The main reason for buying PC answers is that this magazine is actually filled with *usefull* information on computer hardware, its explained in plain English. I do know my computer Jargon, being in the bussiness, but i still like to read things in normal language. PC Answers is not full of adverts and every ..." Read review

Not wonderful

AdvantagesMagazine contains relatively few adverts, and is printed on reasonably high quality paper

DisadvantagesThe editorial is mediocre, and its far too expensive

"PC Answers is one of those computer magazines where they seem to spend half their time working on the CD Rom, and half their time on the magazine. Whilst the magazine is OK, ComputerActive is a very similar type of mag but it goes much more in depth, and explains all the jargon too. The £4.99 price tag may be low when compared to some computer magazines, but it is rather expensive when you actually get hold of the magazine and CD-Rom and see ..." Read review

Disadvantagesnone

"...and helpful. after buying my first pc back when windows 98 was the latest thing and it took a life time to load any web pages on my dial up modem, I needed help doing the simplest things.

great mag

Advantagesexcellent mag, not too many ads

Disadvantagesnone that I can see

"This magzine is one of my favorites, mainly bacause it does not consist almost entirely of adverts, the way some mags do. PC Answers does exactly as the name suggests, providing a good standard of answers to a great many problems, both run of the mill, and also more complicated. There are various sections in this magazine, from a large question and answer page catering for beginners and experienced users alike, to reviews and tests on hardware ..." Read review
