Pros: What's to say. It works great. It is being overworked in a NAS at the moment and I have had no problems.
Cons: Non that I know of.
Other Thoughts: Great for repairing or even upgrading as you repurpose older units. Working great so far. Only time will tell, but no complaints so far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intuit Quickbooks Payroll Enhanced 2013
Pros: Works great, seamlessly integrates with Quickbooks Pro. If you need an upgrade for your QB software, the bundle is definitely the way to go - so look for that instead. With the enhanced version forms and e-filing are available and that has always worked without a hitch.
This version is still CD based and is still good for a year and that is better than the subscription alternative.
Even though it works, if I could give this a 0 eggs, negative eggs or broken eggs, I would!
Cons: The pricing and what you get are just BONKERS!!!! The company's attitude towards existing customers is deplorable. It costs more to renew than to start the service new. Intuit is trying to move everyone to a monthly subscription with a yearly pay in and a per month/ per employee fee. They also want you to buy more services and you constantly get messages and come-ons for that.
You have to give Intuit your Credit Card Number. You can opt out, but that is another phone call. Intuit consistently removes functions and makes you pay to get them back.
It is just plain annoying.
This version is limited to 3 employees. Anyone with even one more employee will pay an additional amount of money to process the entire payroll. The list price for unlimited employees is north of $400.00. It is either extra small or one size fits all. INTUIT, THAT IS RIDICULOUS! The costs are hidden on the website. You never can tell how much it will cost to add the additional employees.
Other Thoughts: You can buy this and self renew. The cost will be less than a straight automatic renewal. This is how it is done. This option may not be available for long, but should work at least until May 2015. I hope NewEgg's Review Guidelines doesn't consider this an aftermarket procedure.
1. Uninstall your old subscription service by going to Employees - My Payroll Service - Manage Service Keys. Click on your companies and uninstall. You will get a warning about it being removed from your computer but you have to call Intuit to discontinue your service. That is okay. I do this after my subscription has expired.
2. Now install from the new CD. Under Employees, you should now have an install from box option. Use it. Yes you will have to have a CC and give all the information. But you can call to deauthorize the auto-renewal after this is all set up.
3. You will now have an activated 3 employees or less payroll. If you want to add more employees your must call customer service. Don't Panic.
4. Ask to add employees, you will told that will cost more than 400.00 USD However when you get to the end of the conversation, you will be told that the 400.00 will appear on your credit card for 24 hours and then it will go away and approximately 100.00 plus tax will be charged to your card. This is what happens but it may take a few days for all the charges and reversals to clear.
Good Luck and if you find a good alternative to Intuit Payroll - SPREAD THE WORD. Small businesses everywhere will thank you.
This review is from: NETGEAR ProSAFE 16-Port Gigabit Ethernet Switch (GS116) - Lifetime Warranty
Pros: Pro Safe (business product) 24/7 tech support and lifetime guarantee for switch. Tech support very responsive.
Cons: Only 2 year guarantee for the the power adapter.
Other Thoughts: The power adapter started showing signs of malfunction 10 days out of warranty. I called tech support was very responsive and finally approved a free replacement. I notice others have had problems with the power supply as well so it could be the Achilles heel. Given the responsive tech support I would still recommend the product. Check your power supply often for humming, excessive heat and power drains from ups.READ FULL REVIEW
