McAfee download subscription error
GASouthland, Office Depot
26 August 2014
Excerpt: I purchased this item to have protection until 2015 version becomes available Sept 2014. The price was right, instructions for download from Office Depot link were easy. Unfortunately I am not able to subscribe by connecting to McAffe as instructed. I have attempted on many occasions and have only a fews days left to complete this task. I already had a McAfee subscription previously purchased in the year 2013 and the product worked great.
Summary: I've been with McAfee for years, don't know why maybe I'm just too lazy to get anything else. Anyway, just got this product key and I tried to log into the [...] retailcard and there was no where for me to enter the code in. I searched for about 1/2 an hour then gave in and did the web remote. It too the guy, Kevin, almost an hour to uninstall my old version and then reinstall my new one. Gawwwwwwddddd.
Summary: I sometimes despair over the naivety displayed in the ratings on this site, I really do... They are soooo easily bought. Scary to think that some of these kids can vote.
Pros: This is just a "heads up" not a review. As such, I will score the product as neutral. The product has to be downloaded (after a key card is first sent to you). Yes, I see it says "Product Key Card." I just missed it, is all and maybe someone else will, too. (What I didn't miss was the picture of a box. Gothca.)
Cons: Presumably, it has to be downloaded 3 times if you want to use 3 licenses. I dislike having to download software intensly - but maybe it's just me. Anyway, I won't be using it, so I can't review the product itself. Too bad I'm not asked to review the marketing.
Summary: I ordered this thinking I was getting the actual software/CD, due to nothing in the description of the product states otherwise. I received it and it is only a key. IT IS NOT THE ACTUAL SOFTWARE/CD. I prefer the software because if something goes wrong you have the software to be able to reload onto your computer. I am not sure if McAfee Total Protection 2014 in a store contains the actual software...but if you want the software don't purchase this item online.
Summary: Antes los precios de Amazon eran los mejores... pero parece que no. Encontré este producto más barato pasado un tiempo. Amazon me tenía acostumbrado a no comparar mucho ya que sus precios solían ser los mejores con mucha diferencia, pero parece que ya no es así. Tocará buscar y comparar otra vez al comprar cualquier cosa. Respecto al producto es lo que anuncia.
