Kind of depends on the type of software you're looking for
CNET ( is a good starting point
PCMagazine ( is another fairly impartial site

Again, without knowing the kind of software (i.e. Antivirus, backup systems, CRM, and so on) you're looking to's pretty hard to give you more targeted information.

Anything that has toptenreview in it such as treat as junk.

Free software, see Gizmo

I give my added recommendation to you can read editor's reviews on most of the most popular. You can also view software that is paid and free and look at the total number of times the software has been downloaded and read actual users reviews (although be wary sometimes company workers write these reviews so read several--I always read some 5 star and some 1 star reviews to get an idea of the good features and the no so good experiences).

I've visited all of the recommended sites before posting this question and was hoping for something new.  However, I like the chart comparisons at both toptenreviews and wiki (which I didn't see on the cnet or pcmag), which is why I chose aadih as the best solution.  thanks to everyone.
