Rosewill RTCA-TN450 Toner cartridge (OEM Brother TN-450, TN-420) 2,600 pages yield; Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Falls FAR short of 2600pp! 10/01/2015

This review is from: Rosewill RTCA-TN450 Toner cartridge (OEM Brother TN-450, TN-420) 2,600 pages yield; Black

Pros: It worked, it was reasonably easy to install.

Cons: This product either falls woefully short of claims, or the one I got was only partially filled.

The counter on my printer is barely past 1600 - which also includes the original toner which came with the printer (which lasted over 500pp). Which implies this toner, despite being "high yield", has yielded scarcely 1000 pages.

I've not been printing any heavily graphics-laden pages and most of my multi-page print jobs were plain text with plenty of white space. Even if I were using twice the print density as expected, this toner still comes up well short of the purported 2600pp claim.

Print quality was OK but never great. There was a little unevenness to any large print areas.

Intuit TurboTax Premier 2014
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs I have to give this the same rating as the download version 04/14/2015

This review is from: Intuit TurboTax Premier 2014

Pros: Decent program which gets a basic job done for what it's intended (which is not as much as it used to be).

Cons: Missing Schedule C, which it always had for years prior. No ample warning given. I just ran in to the message "Premier is no longer adequate for your tax situation" (which it always was before).

Other Thoughts: I'm giving a condensed version of my review for the download version, since essentially it's the same program.

Bottom line, if TurboTax doesn't bring back Schedule C to Premier, I would not even consider TurboTax for 2015. Even so, this is the time to investigate the alternatives. When a company wants to milk money by removing key features that have been part of a given product for years, in the hopes you'll be stuck and need to upgrade, that's when that company loses trust, in my eyes.

I would have not been so incentivized to look around had Intuit not done this.

Intuit TurboTax Premier 2014 For Windows - Download
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Loses eggs for removing previous features 04/13/2015

This review is from: Intuit TurboTax Premier 2014 For Windows - Download

Pros: The software does the job. While it hasn't upgraded capabilities in quite a few years, it does have reasonable tools. It's a solid product I've been using for quite a few years.

Cons: In addition to TTax not truly updating its capabilities, in 2014 several of its products were downgraded of key schedules. Most pertinent to Premier is that Schedule C, in any form, is no longer included. Don't believe the matrix on the Intuit website; when you hit Sch C, you are told, if you try to enter Sch C data, "TurboTax no longer supports your tax situation".

Well, thanks a lot, TurboTax. A product we depend on for years to do a job now no longer does the same job it used to. If you want to hike the price, go ahead. But don't get slimy and try to force us into a new product by trying to catch us with our pants down.

Other Thoughts: I'll be watching TurboTax very closely over this next year. If Schedule C isn't returned to Premier, and if the previous features aren't returned to Deluxe, I will certainly be kissing Intuit goodbye for 2015. Indeed, I may not be a customer next year, anyway. Intuit lost a lost of trust with this latest stunt, and I will be looking around for alternatives this year.
