    Where online do you find the best unbiased collection of hardware reviews?

    It's easy to get anecdotal advice from individuals (like friends in MacRumors), but I'd like to know where to look at formal reviews online when I'm shopping for a monitor, digital camera, or other computer-related item.

    That has to be the question of the decade, but they are out there.. really hard to find though. Slashdot seems to have some nice reviews from people there that ended up trying out a mac, and truthfully report the pros and cons sometimes.

    I always thought barefeats.com gave good comparisons, although they are pretty mac-oriented.

    I like hitting www.cnet.com when I'm looking for something new.

    Nobody mentioned Macworld. I read the hardcopy magazine but the online site is certainly easier to search!

    C-Net is excellent. They compare all platforms, do weekly newsletters of new kit in different categories, have user reviews and its searchable with a bit of effort.

    For digital cameras...

    For reviews and other information about digital cameras, I would recommend DP Review.
