2 out of 5 eggsGood... I guess.

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: It makes the older Microsoft reliant people in my company happy.

Cons: From a technical support point of view this product is a pain to support for multiple customers. Each copy must be registered to an email, meaning you must either have all your customers suites on your account (which will get confusing and technically is like stealing your customers software for yourself) or you must make customers register the product themselves. The major issue is if you or your customer forget this information Microsoft will refuse to support you at all. This has been a severe issue for multiple of my clients who lost this information and were forced to buy a whole new office suite due to being refused support or help of any kind from Microsoft. I was told if I provided information that was on the customers receipt they would help and after a month of correspondence I was told that they actually could not help me and I would need to purchase a new copy. Microsoft in my opinion has been going downhill for awhile and I refuse to use any of there products myself, but am forced to support there products because for some odd reason people love there products... which they break with updates and change constantly for no real reason.

Other Thoughts: I personally will always recommend people try out OpenOffice to replace all the Office Suite software and Thunderbird to replace Outlook. These software's have tons of support and are free of charge. I use them everyday with no issue and can send files to people who use Microsoft Office without issue if you save to the correct format.

5 out of 5 eggsMicrosoft makes it hard to love

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: Needed office. It is what it is

Cons: Could only download after typing and signing up for Microsoft account. No network media download available. Only per account.

Other Thoughts: Had an issue that Newegg Customer service handled in a professional and courteous manner. I will always bring my business back to Newegg!

2 out of 5 eggsIt's a complicated love/hate relationship

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: Still a nice piece of software for what it can do, but . . .

Cons: Still has all the same old problems:
Can't turn off hyperlink warnings to files stored on the hard drive.
Excel doesn't work per documentation regarding stats functions.
Although VBA and Excel generally agree on formula execution
order, there are instances when they do not.
Excel's Rand() is great on Ivy Bridge & later CPUs, but . .
VBA's Rnd() repeats each 16,777,216 calls
On and On and On.

Other Thoughts: Excel has been broken for years and M$ still refuses, or doesn't know on to fix it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: I like it. It's like 2010, but refined. Once you spend some time with it, and actually take 5mins to learn about the new features (especially the new productivity tools) then it's great! Sure it has it's usual collection of stupid things (I get tired of clicking through screens to save files in a different place from where my last save went).

OneDrive IS NOT FORCED ON ANYBODY. Jeez, it's amazing how a false bit of information can snowball through the brains of so many. Sheep. If you don't want to use the cloud storage you get with the software, don't click on OneDrive when you go to save something!

Cons: Having to listen to all the anti-MS whiners, the people who can't figure out oneDrive, hearing the complaints from all the small business people who think this is expensive (bought any enterprise licensing lately?) and of course listening to all the Mac users whining about how MS products aren't working right on their Macs (even though Apple is the problem in the development efforts).

Other Thoughts: If you don't have crusty mental blocks preventing you from realizing this is new software and the current year isn't 1998, you should be fine. Out of the box it functions fine, and within a day or two (if you're honest with yourself) you should have all the details figured out, the suite configured, and be on your way. If not, use Google, and also go to the MS website! MS has tons of stuff for new learners! They're WAY more interested in helping people figure things out than Apple.

If you're clinging to Windows 98 and cursing the advancement of software...disconnect now and stay with 98. Don't waste all our time by telling us all about the new fangled thing you didn't bother learning how to use.

1 out of 5 eggsMS Office 2013

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: None

Cons: After reading all the reviews and looking at the overall rating, I decided to stay with MS Office 2007.

I'm not interested in cloud storage, ever!!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsBest office version since 2003

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: Sleek and stylish design.
Typing in Word and Outlook is smooth and gives a feel that is easy on the eyes.
GUI is bright and matches most monitors.
Haven't used powerpoint much since 2003, but 2013 blows it out of the water with all of the features and capabilities that were added.

Cons: Outlook integration with exchange server is very buggy.
Tabs make things very difficult to find. Often just end up putting things in the quick launch bar and overcrowding it making it look like 2003.
As many have mentioned, the price is unbearable. For offices, budgets become tight and for home use there are so many other FREE options.
Have also had some minor crashes in word and excel but nothing life-threatening (always ctrl-s when typing a large document).

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very satisfied with 2013. It improved on a lot of things that were wrong with 2003 and 2007 (that were also addressed in 2010) and adds a nice touch in the graphical interface category.
Although I complained about Exchange server integration, at least there is one and it plays with AD.
For offices, there are really no other products that offer Microsoft's support and that is what most upper management look for (aside from cheap) in a product.
As for home use, Libre is the way to go.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible for Computer Shops

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: Outlook has improved a lot over the years making it more stable, and increasing the storage limits.

Cons: The whole install and activation process is pathetic. If you are a smaller scale computer service company, the old activation system was infinitely superior for everyone involved, but of course Microsoft doesn't care. Office is severely overpriced, especially the subscription based 365 versions.

Other Thoughts: Microsoft had better be careful. They are trying to milk more profit out of office to make up for shortfalls in other areas, but even with the ubiquitousness of Office, businesses and consumers will look for alternatives at some point to save money.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware!!

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: Nothing worth writing home about.

Cons: - Price
- Single license
- No program installation/customization option
- Default installation to C drive only. No ability to install on different drive

Other Thoughts: My father bought this software but couldn't download it from overseas (military) and Newegg wouldn't give him a refund. Bought this from him and went through installation process via the MSO website. You can get the 32 or 64 bit versions of the software. You can also download the image file and burn it to a DVD for offline installation. Why I gave it 1 egg? For $219, I should have the freedom to put it on any hard drive I want--not the default C drive--only--and just one license (one computer only). The other problem is that it installs all the office programs--even those you might not want or use. So if you have a small SSD with your OS and you don't want anything else on it--forget about stopping Office from installing itself to that drive. Yes, it runs fast on the SSD but that's not what I bought my SSD for. Guess it's back to Office 2010.

1 out of 5 eggsBunk

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: I have used Excel and Word from day one, when I got my computer after my Apple2e.I really enjoy working with it and have touted it's supremacy for all these years.

Cons: Now they have destroyed the best program by just selling product keys, having to us virtual storage. Their is no way I want all my files on a server somewhere. If you continue on this line of thinking, you are going lose all your loyal customers to Lenox based machines.

3 out of 5 eggsDoes what it's supposed to do.

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: It's still the flagship office productivity suite on the market. It does what it's done for years. That's about it.

Cons: The ALL CAPS tab titles? Yikes.
You have to work really hard to eliminate the 'sky drive' option, which is incredibly stupid in a business environment. It all but pleads with users to upload their documents! Also, the Save screen has to be tweaked (and it takes some doing) or else the save process is 2 steps just to get to a list of folders.

Virtually no visual enhancement choices for the UI - basically white or light grey.

Other Thoughts: Better than its open source counterparts in terms of functionality. However, it doesn't feel 'professional' anymore. It hits you with unwanted 'features' like SkyDrive, then makes it rather difficult (it takes Group Policy settings) to fully get rid of it. Definitely another step toward the 'let's call our programs 'apps' and make them cool!' nonsense.
