This report contains a review of Nb(3)Sn magnets, completed or otherwise, and discusses their degree of relevance for future fusion magnets. As it is now favourable to use a wind and react process for the manufacture of both toroidal and poloidal coils, attention is paid in particular to coils made in this way. The magnets discussed are: (i) US/MIT demonstration poloidal coil (DPC); (ii) Japanese demo poloidal coil (DPC-Ex); (iii) MIT 12 Tesla coil; (iv) Westinghouse LCT coil; (v) CERN LHC dipole model magnet; (vi) ENEA 12 Tesla coil for SULTAN; (vii) Nb(3)Sn coils for SULTAN III; (viii) Nb(3)Sn choke coils for mirror machine MFTF-B; (ix) TF coils of the tokamak TI5. For each one, brief descriptions of the status, main parameters used, manufacturing details and test results are provided.
