The thing that torques me about PS is the fact that you don't get access to back articles when you buy a subscrtiption.

I used to subsribe to Aviation Consumer which appears to be published by the same outfit. The format of the publications is identical. With my Aviation Consumer subsctiption I could log in to their website and see any past article I wanted to. This was very, very handy and informative. However it is not the case with PS. On the PS website, you can see the listing of past articles, but you have to order and pay for reprints. Since many of the items you might be interested in reading reviews of are fairly low cost, ordering and waiting for a reprint doesn't make sense. If they wanted to hold back the boat reviews and stuff of that sort I wouldn't complain but are you really going to delay buying a bottle of deck cleaner while you wait for a reprint of the article where they tested 7 different kinds?
