If you call Which? on 01992 822800 they have a great new deal which gives you both the magazine & online access at a reduced price. I've had online access only paying £7.75 per month but changed to the magazine subscription which is £1 per month for the first 3 months trial period then £6.25 a month after that if you wish to continue AND the great thing is that this subscription includes free access to Which? online website ( normally £7.75 alone) with all the up to date reviews covering a wide range of subjects including gardening , computing, money & travel!

I tried Which and can't say I was that impressed - I'd prefer to read opinions on products from people who have used them over a period. Also I feel some of their advice is lower quality than that which you'd easily find by doing a quick internet search anyway.
Just my opinion, but I give it for free :-D

The Which panel are brilliant! Use both! When it comes to electrical items, which you're likely to pay a hell of a lot for, yes you can obviously look at reviews from the general masses, which is a useful tool for discovering the longevity of an item, but most public reviews aren't going to be any where near as informative as the Which reviewers, who carry out a multitude of technical tests which they carry out as standard on each model they review so a fair, scientific, and very in-depth comparison came be made as to the finer points between items.

I signed up to a similar Which offer a little while ago when researching which widescreen tv to buy; usefully, they have a 'Best Buy' table, which gives overall scores for each item tested, along with info on why it gained that mark etc etc. Also, they have this useful price comparison button, which automatically checks the price for that item across sometimes dozens of retailers, so you can find the cheapest place to get your item without having to trawl through dozens of sites yourself; saves so much time!

Obviously not every single product on the market can be tested, there's simply not enough time, but they've got this really great 'WORST BUYS' section naming the worst models on the market. It's quite illuminating; for instance, the Toshiba Regza 40XF355D, at nearly £500, only got a 30% score, as did one from Marks & Spenser!! Considering many deals are posted on here regarding seemingly great ultra-cheap tvs, I think Which is a pretty essential source to consult if you're planning on buying one of these 'deals'; a £300 tv reduced from £500 may seem like a deal to good to miss, but if the tv performs like a heap of cr*p then it's a VERY expensive heap of cr*p, and not really a deal at all!

I'd really recommend signing up to this deal if you have an iminent purchase to make, (it's usually about £15 per month) - they really know what they're talking about- and then, when you've found whatever item has the best ratings / review / price for you etc, THEN go off and have a quick google for public reviews on that item to see if it might be prone to developing a particular fault when used after prolongued use / ownership (something that Which obviously can't do).

3 quid for three whole months?! HOT HOT HOT! :thumbsup:

Which? are quite terrible, they need to make sure they understand what 'impartial' actually means. Also, the readers of which take it as the word of God, showering scorn upon anyone who's opinion may differ from their Religious Text.
#4
Just to be clear, normal Which? membership which includes the monthly magazines and full online access is £75 pa, ie £6.25 pm. So this deal gives a total three month saving of £15.75 and a normal subscription rate thereafter. As to whether it's worth it, as Dave says its a subjective opinion. Given that advice goes beyond consumer product testing to financial products, taxation, services etc, you'd be hard pressed to get such objective advice elsewhere as independence of all sponsorship is central to its content. Simply avoiding buying a lemon of a new car more than pays for itself. As to people's real experience of using these products, such a review of members' experiences often accompanies a Which? report.

Eh? Have you ever actually been on Which?!

What makes you believe they're not impartial? Also, what nutjob have you been talking to who has ever declared the Which reviews as: 'the word of God'?!!! - some pretty interesting social circles YOU hang out in! :w00t:

Yes I have been on Which?, literally as I trampled it under my hoofed foot. If you meant have I ever read the Which? magazine or visited their website the the answer would be yes.

Have you ever heard of a metaphor? As that is what I was kind of aiming for. Simply put, people take the opinion taken by someone to be the literal truth, in the same way that some people believe that their religious text is the literal truth and live by it word for word.

I do not think they are impartial for many reasons, but here is one for you to look over.

Regardless of what you think of Which? it is still the least biased of reviewers out there as it sets itself an ethical code & campaigns for the rights of consumers. It must be difficult to pay for all the items anonymously that they have to buy (as being given them by manufacturers would necessarily be accurate) as well as the extensive testing plus lobbying government, campaigning & raising awareness of consumer issues all from members subscription fees. If you walk into an electrical store or look on a website & you are faced with a choice of potentially hundreds of items that all look the same you have no idea which one is better than the next unless you trust the view of the salesman & boy have I read some rubbish on blogs?! We use Which? reviews as an information source & starting point then consider our own budget & needs then use our own judgement. This has worked well over our the last 25 years for us. In addition we have had considerable help & free legal advice when things have gone wrong.

Please read the above link, it is far all from subscription fees.

I have done & the above is my view after reading it. I don't know of a website that doesn't get revenue if you click on a link & though not ideal Which? may have been forced to move with the times as the subscription fees are high & I doubt that the take up is as good as in the past as the internet is freely available as a source of information although not always a good source. Not having highlighted this well enough was obviously an error of judgement but that doesn't make them biased. So to raise awareness of this deal for those that want it please only vote cold if you don't think it is good deal rather than that you don't like Which?

I don't like Which?, so I do not think it is a good deal. It's back to the same old HUKD arguement. The link contradicts what you said about which, so why doesn't that concern you? Anywho, probably one to agree to disagree.

My beef with them is if they are so good why do I have to subscribe? If they're that good they wouldn't need subscription, people would buy it off the shelf... if it were that good!
