And a change in the look of the ratings.

We’ve also evolved our ratings to make them more intuitive. We’ve moved away from red and black circles to a more universally understood scale where green is excellent and red is poor. The numerical values paired with the up and down arrows easily allow you to see differences among products, even at the model level.

Predictable cover change, but I think it's a solid upgrade.  The ratings system is miles better; I always had trouble deciphering the old one if I happened to look at an issue.

Their old look has grown a bit iconic, but I suppose the new look makes more sense.  It'll take some time to get used to, but I think in a vacuum it's an upgrade.


"Iconic" is right.  But with their new system, the old red circle would now signify a bad product, hence getting rid red "o" in their "Consumer Reports" cover and turning it into just CR.
