For a while I have my doubts about chess.com computer analysis, but for a computer this move in the next position shouldnt be so hard to find.
Before 27... Bxd4 computer evaluates position -3.59. After the move evaluation is -9.25. It is very hard for me to believe that computer couldnt find that move. That concerns me becouse I want my game to be analysed by computer that always finds better moves than me.
Get Houdini 1.5 or Stockfish for free. Get the Arena GUI (also free). If you have half decent hardware you can do high quality analysis with these.
Better to not use a computer at all to analyze. It will give you a numerical evaluation, but won't tell you why. Therefore, if you don't use one to show you the way, you fend for yourself and develop your analytical skills. A stronger player will show you what's wrong with your play, but then you learn from him. All part of my free video lessons program.
I find the computer useful for analysis not so much for the eval but because I can input moves and ideas and instantly find out if they are tactically sound or not. This is the main function of computer analysis imo.
Chess.com computer 2500 is better.
I usualy dont have stronger player (actually I dont have anyone) to analyse one-two of my games a week with me so I do it myself. I dont need computers to tell me about mate in 14, but sometimes even after analysis I miss easy 2-3 move tactics that should be very obvious to see so computer helps me find that. One again I have to thank aww-rats for making a video about my game few months ago.

It's not shameless slef promotion at all. His words are true regardless of his video series. He's just offering his services as a strong player to help less experienced players. Especially since it's free. If he charged then he might be stepping across a line somewhere, but it's free so no harm no foul.
Agree with the above, since the video lessons are free any self-promotion should be considered a good thing.
