I subscribe to several magazines because each one has a different bias, and they obviously don't always write about the same things. I purchase magazines at the newsstand when a particular article or review interests me enough that it's a keeper.

One other item of note would be the DVD reviews. I like the ratings, the short descriptions, and the technical information.
