The editorial focus of Consumer Reports is to provide information about different products to general consumers. It evaluates all products on an unchanging and thorough scale to provide a fair evaluation for individuals seeking to purchase. Consumer Reports evaluates a vast array of products ranging from automobiles to microwave ovens, from frozen dinners to insurance policies. Findings are presented in easy-to-read reports that employ the clear, ingenious system of colored dots ranking performance in specific areas. Along with reporting their findings, Consumer Reports offers advice on how to be a better shopper, whether it's how to read a car's price sticker or choose fresh fish.

I use Consumer Reports to make technology decisions, whether its a new computer or a TV, Consumer Reports helps make the choice easier.
Good all around magazine for value conscious consumers
I use the CR mag. often. It could be a lot better if the web were also part of the subscription. Even though I keep copies the web is faster & more convient.
I use this magazine as a great starting point for many purchases. Since reasons for various ratings are given, I can decide if they're pertinent for me. It helps me know what questions to ask and what to look for, especially important with big ticket items. I'd be lost without it.
If you care about the products you buy,how safe they are and how they perform against the competition,this is the best resource out there.
