Pros: Good install implementation, nice built-in PC license management tool, love being able to have two Excel windows open side by side, nice integration with SkyDrive and online Office tools, the perfect app set for my needs, blows the “free” office products out of the water
Cons: Minor: perplexed about Contact Groups not being available when connecting through Outlook.com (EAS), but there are workarounds
Overall Review: Office continues to improve (Microsoft finally realizing “Home” users like Outlook too) and I love the options 365 offers. I use it regularly across several machines and 365 meets that need very well. I really like the option where 1 year of Xbox Live Gold was included with the purchase. ‘nuff said, now I’ll get back to using it…
Pros: Always up-to-date
All the Microsoft Office Apps I wanted, and some that I may play with, but don't use.
Comes with OneDrive cloud storage included.
Cons: It appears that functions are not installed into your computer until the first use. That is my perception, anyway. I haven't actually disconnected from the Internet to see if everything works and to use some function that I haven't already used. I just notice a HUGE pause the first time I use uncommon functions. For instance, the first time I used TIMEVALUE() in Excel, there was about a 30 second delay after I had typed in "TIMEVALUE(" before I was allowed to choose the field to convert and enter the closing ")" . On subsequent use, this did not happen.
Overall Review: I am on the fence regarding whether this will be good enough to pay an annual fee to use. I've been using LibreOffice and purchased this for compatibility with my work environment, specifically Outlook. To me, Outlook is the next best thing to Mozilla Thunderbird, but Thunderbird isn't appropriate for my work environment. So far, I don't see any particular advantage or disadvantage relative to LibreOffice, at least for my uses.
Pros: Quick turn around, from order to installed and activated in less than one hour.
Cons: none so far, none expected
Overall Review: Outstanding sales price from seller and great value from Microsoft
Pros: Several parts of this package are class-leading. Who does word processing better than Word? Who does excel sheets better than Excel? Taken together as an entire suite, there is no competition out there.
Cons: Sometimes they break things.
Being the direct channel upgrade model, sometimes plugins will suddenly stop working (SalesForce for Outlook anyone?). Seems like the breaks do get fixed eventually though.
Overall Review: There's much room for improvement, but good news -- it's constantly getting top tier development. I gave the five eggs by grading on a curve. If there's no competitor even coming close, how can I detract eggs?
Pros: With key code and logged into Microsoft office account download went smooth and installed all applications perfect, even still picked up all settings from an uninstalled version of Office 2013 so really no setup at all. Windows 10 Creator with all updates installed before hand. Auto renew gets you another free month.
Cons: Was warned to uninstall previous version of Office so did so before downloading but still picked up stuff left behind from Office 2013 (32 bit conflict but was installing 64 bit so did not care). Took a while for download to complete, maybe 10 min total and another 5 for install and 365 account setup.
Overall Review: Key code sent from Newegg within an hour so not bad delivery but if you expect immediate don't hold your breath
Pros: Secure on-line delivery
Cons: Difficult at first
Overall Review: I have now gotten use to most of the new settings from Microsoft but I still have a long way to go. My suggestion is to stick with it, and it will grow on you. I ordered mine on line and it was very secure and easy to down load. I shared with my sister and after the security stuff she was up and running in now time.
Pros: The price was below the going rate at other vendors for this product and the digital download process was quick and easy.
Cons: I have no complaints whatsoever
Overall Review: I have never had a problem with Newegg, it's a great place to shop.
Pros: All the useful Office programs are included, including Publisher. Install on five computers plus mobile devices for less than the usual upfront cost of a single Office Home & Student license makes it very affordable.
Cons: Annual subscription charge - it makes it all more affordable up front, but over the five-year life of a typical computer it will cost more than double what a home/student Office suite usually costs. This con doesn't apply if you have several computers that you want to install it on - that still winds up being a savings.
Overall Review: Newegg totally hosed me on this one. I needed the program RIGHT NOW and so chose the downloadable product. Only after the transaction was complete did I learn that the download can be delayed for 48 hours. Newegg online chat support told me there was nothing they could do to speed it up, couldn't tell me exactly when I'd get my product key, and wouldn't do a refund because I had "purchased software". I turned around and bought it from a competitor and had it downloaded and running within an hour. 24 hours later I got my useless second product key from Newegg. Maybe if I get five more computers it will come in handy. And another shot at the Egg - this is not my first review. Somehow the first one didn't get published. We'll see if this one makes it.
