Abstract: We review the unusual properties of the new class of polarized IPs, and of the four known desynchronized AM Her systems. Emphasis is put on the peculiar accretion patterns at work in these objects and their connections with the magnetic field value, the X-ray emission and the UV and optical line behaviour. No coherent picture can account for the peculiarities of both types of magnetic CVs, which do not form uniform sub-classes.
