Very, Very Informative. Just love the reviews of the electronics and which companies have good to great customer support. I love the car report and comparisons. Laundry Detergent comparisons were something different. This is just a great magazine you will want to read from cover to cover--especially the inside back cover with its "Goofs, Glitches and Gotchas. It's also great that it has NO advertisements!!!
