1 out of 5 eggs Don't Upgrade Quicken Yet 03/09/2015

This review is from: Intuit Quicken Deluxe 2015

Pros: It's Quicken about the only software that will interact with all my credit cards, bank accounts etc so I don't have to enter everything manually. Only thing new I see in 2015 is my credit score which I already get from Discover and Credit Karma.

Cons: I wouldn't recommend upgrading to 2015 Deluxe yet there are too many bugs. For example downloading from the same institutions as I did in Quicken 2014 causes the 2015 version to crash with a Com error. Also I use Quicken to track my stock performance but the reports generated are so full of errors (mostly omissions) that the results are worthless. This was a problem in 2014 version also but seems to have gotten worse.

Other Thoughts: Quicken basically has no real tech support. You can report bugs/problems but never get any feedback from the company. They basically leave you on your own to try to talk to other Quicken users to resolve the problems. Maybe after some updates 2015 will be worth the money to upgrade but right now it's worse than 2014.

ASUS TF201-B1-GR NVIDIA Tegra 3 1 GB Memory 32GB Flash 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Display is nice, battery life with keyboard is very good.

Cons: Don't buy it if you want to use GPS, it plain doesn't work. Asus has class action suit which they just lost over this. The metal case won't let the GPS function except in the strongest of signals. ASUS solution is to give you a external antenna which can't be used while charging the tablet or while connected to the keyboard.
WIFI reception is poor also due to same case.even after ASUS upgrades the internal antenna. Had to put a WIFI repeater in my living room just to get enough signal strength.

Other Thoughts: A lot of these units got returned because of above problems and now are being resold as "refurbished" even though the problems are still there. Bought my son a Galaxy Tab II and it's a much better tablet which can be bought at about this price.

Pros: Price, has four Sata3 ports

Cons: Manual is kind of skimpy and has at least one error in describing the Sata ports configuration.

Other Thoughts: After working with Tech Support I now understand why the Sata3 ports don't show correctly in the Bios, I don't like it, but they seem to work ok, so I've revised my rating.
