1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT Buy

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: It installed ok and runs ok.

Cons: Resulted in several eye strain due the no color variation. Especially using Outlook and Excel. Picture Manager is no longer available and there is no replacement that provides identical capability.

Other Thoughts: Maybe someone at Microsoft will eventually wake up. I know I will not be installing Windows 10 based upon the complete disaster of Office 2013.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: Pretty interface. That's about it.

Cons: Expensive.

Activation process is a nightmare, especially when you've purchased multiple copies for a business.

If you use the click-to-run version, it will break a lot of integration with other programs (like iTunes/Outlook syncing) that worked fine with Outlook 2010.

After all the time I've wasted trying to make Office 2013 work properly, I've decided to just stick with Office 2010 for as long as I possibly can or use free alternatives instead.

1 out of 5 eggsBeware of download

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: Software will be fine once I receive it

Cons: I've ordered the download version of this software multiple times without any problem and have received my license number promptly. This last time, however, the order was charged and invoiced completely and after two days no license number came. Beware that if you need this software quickly this might not always happen and you may be better off with a physical copy.

2 out of 5 eggsAnother drop of usability in MS Office

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: This review is for the download version of Office 2013 Home and Business that I have installed for customers and myself.

The programming itself is good, and Office 2013 has some quality features, but the suite is unsuitable for those of us who must use a computer several hours a day in a business setting.

Word has a few small improvements of layout that I personally like, like the opening screen showing recent files, and the lightly expanded thesaurus display (I like change, so I like new layouts). Outlook 2013 (of which I have not yet installed all of my email accounts on for fear of corruption due to possible compatibility problems with the existing Outlook 2010 (I have had far too many similar problems in the past)) seems to function well enough for my limited needs, but when compared side by side with Outlook 2010 on the same PC, I choose 2010 without a second thought.

No matter how bad a Microsoft Office version might be, it is still of a higher quality than all known open source suites, although the margin of quality is rapidly narrowing.

Cons: The skin is simply intolerable for my eyes and personal preferences. I restore-down all apps in Office 2013 to enable a dark desktop 'border', but still the GUI has so little contrast between different commands that I quickly close the app and return to 2010. I like the spartan-like layout, but the eye strain is unacceptable. No software is worth the cost of a person's eyesight.

The speed of Word is noticeably slower than 2010, and 2010 is noticeably slower than 2003. If I were upgrading straight from 2003 to 2013 I would be much more displeased than I already am. Each release of Office appears to be running slower although each version is being installed on a faster PC, and I am progressively becoming concerned that future releases may become fully unusable due to prolonged hesitations within the apps. (Word 2003 running on an old Sempron 2.3ghz cpu is far faster and more responsive than Word 2013 running on an A10 at 4ghz.)

I have been told that the downloaded Office 2013 upgrade might not be capable of being reinstalled even on the same PC. I have not had time to keep-up with all of the recent EULA changes, and perhaps the reinstallation permissions have now been extended, but I am not taking any chances. The Office 2013 installation is useful to me so that I can use it for researching problems in customers' installations of 2013, so I want to keep the current Office 2013 on my test rig and not risk losing it.

Other Thoughts: I continue to find no other business software to be as good as Microsoft's, but Office 2013 is not Microsoft's best for desktop/laptop business users. Office 2003 Professional is very good for businesses and professionals (fast, stable, and easily learned), but Office 2007 was a major downgrade, Office 2010 basically just seemed to correct some of 2007's inappropriate layouts, and Office 2013 is another major plunge downward for usability and appearances. Seven years of new versions being less useful than the previous version is not a good indication.

When recently needing to install an email client on one of my computers I had the choice of Office 2000, 2003, or some 90s editions (all of which I already have on disk), or buy another copy of 2010 or 2013. I was tempted to install 2003 Pro, but I needed something more modern, and since Office 2010's and 2007's prices have gone insane due to the high demand (if the versions can be found at all), I did something that I did not think I would ever do; I installed the Thunderbird email client. If Thunderbird does not meet my needs I will simply make-do with what I have (remote into a different computer just to use the Outlook) and accept the fact that new usable software that can be transferred to different computers if necessary may not again be available for years, if ever. At this point, even if Microsoft corrects the skin in Office 2013 I will still likely not buy a copy. For me, Office 2010 may be the last Microsoft Office I ever buy.

A lot of us are growing increasingly more concerned that Microsoft is distancing itself from business customers, and if so, then what future options do we have beyond Linux and open source? I am a big fan of Microsoft, but the last eight major pieces of software installed on my primary computer were from Microsoft's competitors, and I have not purchased any Microsoft software for my own use since Windows 8 was released (I received my upgrade download of Office 2013 for free); not a good sign.

4 out of 5 eggsNot the same.

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: The basic functionality is mostly the same, if you used office before you should be able to use the new version.

Cons: Different look different feel, outlook in specific looks more for an office.com email (which I guess is expected) versus other emails out there, but it still does you just have to choose the appropriate settings.

Took 1 star off for being Microsoft priority, for $200 for an office suite it shouldn't lead you to certain things.

Other Thoughts: I've always used office and is one of the most common office packages out there, if more business's started using other vender office software more home users would see other options. I still like this product but things may change as years go on.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great. Solves 2010 Outlook Trouble

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Business 2013 - Download - 1 PC

Pros: I don't know why people complain about this product. I know for a fact that if you share multiple accounts in outlook exchange then you may have trouble in 2010 but in 2013 the problems go away with stalled connections.

Cons: Outlook takes longer to open than 2010.
