This review is from: Microsoft Office Mac Home & Business 2011 Product Key Card (No Disc)
Pros: It opens those non-backwardly-compatible x-files MS created just to make trouble for Open Office, so ou can save them as normal .doc, .xls and .ppt files. It also lets you search for paragraph marks using caret p with the keyboard mapped for Portugal. The keyboard mapping for US International either won't or hides it where I cannot find it. The caret is too big and fails.
Cons: The interface is the same moronic trash as all versions of Office after 2003. Worse, in Win Office you can buy macros to reconfigure the menus and restore most usefulness, but the people who sell that software do not make a Mac version. They do claim there is another way to accomplish the reordering, but I've not found it.
Other Thoughts: It was real easy to delete Outlook in Mac OS. Also, the search function highlights what you typed so it is easy to discriminate among hits. The interface is still hideously garbled, and the stuff you've been using for 20 years is scrambled, scattered or rendered as useless as possible. Still beats anything running on Win 7 or 8 as the Mac OS has suffered no such vandalism.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The drive was what I expected, and runs cooler than the one it replaced, with lots of extra real estate.
Cons: Do not know how long it will last, but it's been a long time since I had a drive fail.
Other Thoughts: I was just happy to get a drive at a good price and have it work as described.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XEROX DocuMate 515 XDM5155D-WU 24 bit 600 dpi Fast Simplex Scanner
Pros: The scanner works so well I bought a second one, in part to get another license for the OCR software bundled with it, but also for use as a scanner.
Cons: It does not like dirty photocopies with loose toner on them. Easier to wipe the pages than wipe the sheetfeed works. The reflective scan makes me position stuff just so, with more effort than the usual flatbed.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these a year apart, so clearly I think this is the best scanner out there for the money, and I have been through many scanners in 20 years.READ FULL REVIEW
