Reason for Spam and Ads. The site is amazing, but you have games and others Ads trying to pop-up all of the time. For my son Kaspersky parental controls allow access, but constantly blocks Ads for games and other downloads. Other than that it's very good.

It is a good computer site- but it has A LUDICROUS NUMBER OF THINGS ATTEMPTING TO RUN IN THE BACKGROUND!!! Unless you know how to configure things like NoScript and Request Policy your best bet is to probably stay away.

PCMag is absolutely safe, the reviews may not be very accurate, but it's safe to go to and I read the site just for fun.

Maybe it's a wrong opinion, still whichever article I read on PCMAG didn't seem really valuable and TRUSTFUL. Any advice they gave turned out to be just a waste of words and time.

A good site, but I found 9 different trackers with 24 requests in total. If you are willing to go to this site, do it with Adblock Plus and Disconnect (it blocks trackers).

Notch (Minecraft's creator) posted this on twitter: http://imgur.com/D8wEhXv It seems PCMag awards are given to companies that pay for them. For this reason I would absolutely not trust any product reviews from this site - and as it seems to be their primary product, I don't trust this site at all.
