Reason #32 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:

I read Widescreen Review as a way to dream. I think about the day I make it in life and how I will own only top of the line products featured in your magazine. I think about the parties and social functions at my house and how the centerpiece will be my entertainment system. Though at my current economic standing, it will take me years to be able to afford all the products I want without getting into credit debt, I still see no harm in reading about what will be mine.
