Nope. I actually use to buy it FOR the ads. Their content was crap.

What did them (and pretty much all the rest of the print PC mags) in was the internet. You had tech savvy people who understood it, it cut costs for everybody, you could do direct comparisons, and you could save a week by ordering on line.

I suppose I should note one of the useful features of the ads back then was they frequently listed prices for key items.
