I do think the mag has lost some direction in the last 6 months, as mentioned in other posts, the buyers guide is a waste of space, not to mention it being *so* out of date it is unbelivable.

I will wait till the end of my subscription, about 3 months off, before I decide if the re-subscribe, if the mag stays like it is now (with the price increase), then I won't be, I'll just buy it when I see something interesting.

I don't want the mag to go like Video Camera/Camcorder User, which it seems to be, if I want pages of reviews on VCR's and camcorders I'll buy there mags, they devote only a small amount to Computer stuff, but CV devotes to much to there topics, lets see more computer items, OS's, graphics cards (in relation to how they work with the major capture cards) etc.. Processors and motherboards to get the best out of a NLE system.

Bob, when is there to be a reivew of the AV Master 2000?

I'm not arguing at all, just trying to lay the foundations so that such comments will no longer be valid.

AV Master 2000 review - by William Poel - will be in the July issue.

Surely, Bob, someone has made a mistake - the AV Master 2000 is reviewed in the June issue of Camcorder User, my copy of which was delivered today. Isn't Camcorder User a sister publication to CV?

One of my points Tim, surely Computer stuff should be in CV first or at least the same month as in Camcorder User, perhaps I should stop buying CV and get Camcorder User instead, considering they seem to have the reviews of stuff that should be in CV before CV, and CV seems to have Camcorder reviews at the same time as or before Camcorder User, isn't this the wrong way round??

When a review appears depends on two things -how soon the kit is got out to the reviewer and how soon the reviewer writes it.
