Horrible. Worst upgrade yet
4 June 2014
Summary: I have been using Quicken for years. I hold off upgrading as long as I can because every time Intuit tries to "improve" the software it is usually harder to use, bloated and quirky. This time was no exception, in fact this is the worse upgrade they have had yet and I have been using it for close to 20 years. My former version was 2011, fairly fast and east to use. I am sorry I bought this 2014 version. I am now searching for something better but not optimistic.
Pros: keeps finances in order
Cons: bloated and slow can't memorize minimize window at program opening takes longer to update quotes now
Summary: I've used Quicken for many years, and the new version is similar to previous ones that I owned. However, it seems buggy and does not interface well with my Windows 7 operating system. For example, the calculator does not pop up when I press the button, and the window does not scroll down properly. There might be other issues that I have not yet encountered.
Summary: Forced to leave Quicken Premier 2011 for this piece of junk. Only some transactions converted over. Some investments will download market rates, so won't. The instructions to manually input historical data do not work. Balances are suddenly appearing on closed accounts. Hours spent already and still no closer to having an accurate statement of net worth. After 20+ years as a Quicken user, I am GREATLY disappointed.
Pros: none zero zilch nada
Cons: did not reliably import all transactions will not update all securities (ticker is correct) balances no longer accurate running parallel with quicken premier 2011
Summary: In the past I have used Quicken and was happy. I started using Basic Quicken last year. I have been trying Quicken Premier this year. About 3 months into the year both this year and last, the information downloaded is incorrect. Premier appeared to be working properly till now. It will no longer update my checking account properly. It will not list payments for some credit card accounts.
Pros: currently i have none.
Cons: without proper downloading of transactions the software has no purpose.
Summary: Have used Quicken since 1991. Quicken 2014 has bugs as do most early or new releases of Quicken. Unfortunately, Quicken support is minimal, so until they decide to fix the problems, you live with them. Not worth the money or aggravation to upgrade from 2012 to 2014 at this time.
Pros: has a mobile app that may work for some.
Cons: has problems that need attention. does not save the user's income vs expense view. subtracts user defined asset mixtures from assets does not convert old files accurately 2012 to 2014 these things worked in 2012 they do not in 2014
Summary: I've relied on Quicken for managing my personal finances since it came out as a DOS program some 30 or more years ago. It served me well until now. I just moved from version 2011 to 2014 at the constant 'urging' of Intuit because downloads would not be supported in the 2011 ver. after April. This software is shamefully full of bugs and I do not trust it.
Cons: worst and buggiest implementation in 30 plus years
Summary: I am currently using Quicken 2011 Premier. This year is the last year this version will be supported. After March, I think, my version will no longer function or at least function properly. Web support will end and online account updates will end. So I was glad to see Costco's $20.00 discount. I have been using Quicken since 1990 and this is the first year that major functionality will end with the new version implementation.
Pros: your accounts in one place one update useful reports and graphics transaction information beyond norm financial password management
Cons: poor customer support draconian upgrade policies constant required updates or loss of data you use really really expensive
