A trusted mag for years I've been a reader of Maximum PC since the days when they were known as boot. I can say I have read every issue since their inception, and though I may not have always agreed with their picks and thoughts, I've always understood where they were coming from and I continually learn from them. This is, has been, and continues to be my go to source for news and advice.
Well worth the 2 Bucks Was alil hesitant on digi magizines; so I opted for the per issue deal. I must say I am very glad I did an they offer such a deal. Great articles, clear writing; perfect for a newbie or a pro.
Not just a great magazine- a great format, too! I enjoy this magazine a lot. It's informative, entertaining, and well-written. I've contemplated getting a paper subscription for a while, but never got around to it because I have a tendency to lose magazines before I've even read them. This is a perfect compromise. The magazine is in its original design when downloaded, but you can click the magical "read text" option and suddenly it's in an easy-on-the-eyes format that is enjoyable to read. You don't need to keep zooming and scrolling, it's in a great article format. Definitely a great addition to my collection. I would definitely recommend this magazine AND format to my friends.
Great format - But I wish I could keep 'em The format is great. Reading on a computer is a breeze and the Newsstand Android app is great. I only wish that I could keep the issues. To be honest... I rarely refer to old issues in the future. Tech moves so fast that a lot of the information becomes irrelevant in under a year. When I do want to keep parts, I just use the Windows Snipping Tool and make JPEGs out of certain pages. You might even print screen it (Prt Scr) into paint or Photoshop. Problem Solved! At $11/year. I cannot complain. Canadians pay a lot for the paper edition.
Good mag; great price! Previously I was reader of Custom PC magazine, but the e-subscription is overpriced, so I thought I'd switch to Maximum PC. Pros: Brilliant value-for-money subscription prices. Cons: I don't see why the publisher needs my name, email, and postal address. There should be an opt-out option; this is an e-magazine subscription after all.
One of the better pc magazines I agree with the writers and editor more than other magazines. However should offer a free gift for finding typos. I'd love some free stuff.
