Reason #11 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
It's really quite simple; the main reason that I read Widescreen Review is because of the overall quality of content and the fact that I can rely upon the writers to provide an open-minded presentation of cutting edge technology as it unfolds in “real time.” I read Widescreen Review to stay informed, entertained, and to learn valuable facts that have the added benefit of saving me money through empowering me to make wise decisions regarding the features and capabilities of the equipment I choose to purchase. While my home theatre is modest, I admire, and am inspired by Widescreen Review's dedication to speaking of and working towards a golden standard for the reproduction of video in the home. I may not be able to afford the very top-of-the-line components, yet with proper information I have found that there is no reason to settle for anything less than the best than I can afford. I choose to read Widescreen Review because of the clarity of its purpose, as well as the consistent delivery of its mission and message. I enjoy reading it every month, it saves me money, and it makes me a more informed consumer with every passing issue. You really say it all in your title “The Essential Home Theatre Resource” and deliver on your promise with intelligent passion inside each issue. Every consumer responds to good value, and that's what I find in the combination of the information I learn, the money I save, and the manner in which I am entertained rather than sold to. Thanks for the fine job that you all do, I appreciate it and so do those I've shared your publication with.
