I am very happy with Zino for many of my magazine subscriptions. Most magazines are read once and then donate or recycle; having them electronic takes up much less space. With some magazines you also have access to back issues. For the ones that do not, a screenshot of an interesting article is usually enough to find it online elsewhere. For the magazines embracing more restrictive DRM, I find a replacement or continue to receive the physical version that can be scanned. If Zinio goes away, nothing of great value to me is lost -- same risk as a magazine going out of business.
There are still some magazines that have not or will not embrace the digital; for those, I am carefully evaluating whether I still need the information they contain. This also applies to magazines that are charging the same price for physical as electronic subscription, despite the savings in printing and mailing.
Yes, yes, a magazine or book does not crash or run out of battery; for most of the magazines I get, not having immediate access to it is not a deal-breaker.
