    nowadays, Digit has turned from a computer mag to a consumer-electronic mag, All the review are phones, Mfds etc,etc. The 9xx series mobos for p4 came out a few months ago. There has'nt been a full-scale comparison of these. Forget that, there hasn't been a comparative review on any motherboard.

    thats right. i think this is due to the change in the objective of digit in august.rather than focusing more on computers,they are gonna focus more on"Technology"which affects our life.man i sure miss the old digit!!!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    This thread belongs to 'Digit discussion' & not here in 'hardware dis'
    Post it where it really belongs.
    But liquid_nitrogen88 u really have a point there.
    Most of us buy digit for info on computing n related technology.
    In fact i ve not yet purchaesed the DEC issue yet.
    Dudes try the Dec annaul issue of chip its cool n loaded with dvd n 2 cds
    and also at he same price of Rs 100.
    I m in love with the Dec CHIP issue maan.Its that good.

    Thats right.Who needs dumb MFD tests. Anyway if you have to review them, once in a year is enough. There are loads of other things that can fill the pages of Digit.Nothing which goes inside the cabinet has been reviewed(save for wi-fi cards). Grrr.......... digit give us some proper tests so that we will try and remain Loyal and polite to Digit.

    Not just hardware... nearly every aspect of the magazine has veered away from technology and become a consumer/business magazine. Lack of hardware reviews is the biggest change... coz now digit doesn't care about users like us anymore, people who use their pc's and are looking for articles on pc's, like hardware reviews, OS tweak guides, linux howto's, overclocking tips etc.
    Now digit is geared towards the home user, who don't really care about the pc's and its components, but would rather want guides on things they can do with their pcs (For example - all the tips n tweaks are related to applications like email clients, photo tools etc) and things they can use like mobile phones.

    Anyway... I have stopped buying digit... if they find that they are getting more readers this way, fine, let digit be the magazine it has become, we will have to look for alternative magazines :/

    Ooops....... :oops: But lets accomodate it here as it has a HARDWARE in its subject :D

    MFDs & Printers:The only thing rapidly changing about them is their price..

    Cell Phones:The 2nd review wasnt actually a review but a BUYER'S GUIDE.It was pretty comprehensive but we can get more reliable info from the respective company sites.

    Laptops:Wats new with them every 6 months?

    Servers::roll: :roll: :roll:

    okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.......................

    This amounts 2 a crime

    And scanners. It's been guite a while.
    Oh, scanners are probably not high on the list of a hardware geek, but there are some things outside the manufacturer's specs where a potential buyer needs guidance, like accuracy of colour reproduction.

    me finally could lay my hands on the much hyped dec chip....it made me remember wat digit was 1 year ago....good articles on AMD systems n half-life2.....best products list was good too...but DVD contents i dint like much...digit is superb in that if v forget the few gliches with sme softwares....

    Hey i think digit was much more eye candy....the articles like tech review2004 was well researched n written....and few more...i hope this thread dont gets too long...as we r shifting to digit discussion over here :D

    i most definately did not like the december digit. all the content was in the dvd(it's like they are forcing you to buy a dvd) and the best buys and awards
    DID NOT EVEN MENTION THE TOP END GRAPHIC CARDS (A SACRILEDGE IN MY VIEW) I want the old chip back.!!!! i mean digit back.[/i]

    Quite right the hardware reviews are pathetic especially the on that goes "THIRTY DAYS WITH........." this time it was the O2 xda2, it was :evil: :evil: irritating as always.....there is less of review of the product and more about this writer waiting for a call from his wife or something , eventually i went on the net to find out about it as i was planning to buy it !!!! no prices or contact address either aaaaaaaaargggggggggg..

    whats happening to this magazine..........????? :cry: :cry:
