Blunt, terse hardware and software reviews wanted!

I find PC magazines to be painfully obsequious to their advertisers.
Where can I find honest, terse, pithy, reviews and tests of hardware and software?

IMHO, Tom's Hardware for hardware....

Software, well, take your pick. CNET (www.cnet.com), PC Magazine (www.zdnet.co.uk), etc.  Type in 'software reviews' in Google and pick a link! :o)

I personally go to Amazon for reviews usually. Customer reviews are usually unbiased once you get through things like Apple fanboys for Apple products and shady manufacturers doingf their own reviews.

With a little practice you can pick out the real reviews and get a good feel for the quality of something there.

Hardware review sites are more objective than magazines, but some have questioned tomshardware in the past for what looked like testing bias when the results went against what everyone else arrived at.  You can look at
