True, CR is somewhat American-centric but they do review lots of non-US made products. For example in this issue they review small and mid-sized SUVs and devote as much space to VWs, Toyotas and KIAs as they do to Jeep, Chevrolet and Buick.
And Sony eReaders are as easy to get in this country as a Kindle.
