What a pain.
Turk D., Newegg
27 November 2013
Pros: Good Product. Personally I like the 2010 version very well. Better than 13. Priced reasonably and works well.
Cons: Have to download. Normally this would not be an issue. I actually prefer to download software but, when it is Microsoft, that is another issue. Had to have a Microsoft account which I have had for years but I purchased this for a work pc and I did not want to have to make an account for work so I...
Summary: You can't buy 2007 anymore, soon you won't be able to buy 2010. 2010 is better IMO than 2013 or 365. Having upgraded from 2007 to 2010 I initially really disliked it. Intense dislike. It is growing on me, now I only have a mild disdain for it.
Pros: Better than 2013 Some improvements over 2007
Cons: Very unintuitive UI. Slower than the older Office suites. Not as pretty as the older office suites. Hard to train users who are used to 2003/2007
Summary: It's Microsoft...so it could always be better.
Pros: Does everything you need (as an average student needing it)
Cons: Make ABSOLUTELY sure you have gotten rid of ANY files associated with any older Office programs, or installation will fail. Microsoft refuses to fix this. 'Not enough people affected' to merit a fix. Office 2010 does not like seeing anything laying around that it's predecessor was using.
Summary: If you have several computers in your home this is the way to go for the basics.
Pros: It is exactly what ya think it is. Just the basics.
Cons: It is exactly what ya think it is. Missing the other stuff one could generally use. It does not have access, outlook or visio. But, I have many computers and I like to be legit, on a budget so here we go.
Summary: Just make sure to Uninstall earlier version of WORD before installing Office 2010. Opening WORD file from explorer defaults to earlier WORD. Could not change associations either. Stuck having to open WORD docs only from inside WORD 2010.
Pros: Does what our teachers required. Many more batch features than what we had with Office 2000.
Cons: No easy way to fix problem with earlier version of Word being associated with file ext.
Summary: After several days of use, if I could go back to Office 2003, I'd be on the fence. The loss of real menus is a productivity-killer for me, but there are many obvious improvements, too.
Pros: Having used Microsoft Office 95, 97, and 2003, I thought I was very satisfied with the features and interface of 2003. After a few days of regular use, I can say that many improvements from Office 2003 to Office 2010 are great time-savers.
Cons: Local network shares aren't "trusted locations?" Information on how to change this is difficult to come by (unless you are an institutional user with access to OCT.) I have spent a great deal of time hunting for things that used to be readily accessible by the menu. To be honest, I like the "ribb...
Summary: Newegg great as usual. 3 eggs for 3 useful programs.
Pros: Installed with no problems. 3 Pack can be useful. Overall, there are many improvements, but you will have to learn where to find them.
Cons: One Note -- SUCKS! Whoa! Who changed my computer to a Mac! I don’t have time to waste with this program. If it won’t let me print when I say, then it’s gone! For some, One Note may be useful, but NOT on my computer. Readjusting to office 2010 from early versions is a pain, but is possible once yo...
Summary: Has most of the basic software functions,the only problem with this is the Outlook mail funtion will not work at all unless you fork out well over $100 for this function.Sometimes awkward to use with G mail,yahoo mail or MSN mail other than that good basic functions.
Summary: Just loaded this a week ago as I had been working on a trial basis prior to this. Lost office 2007 when my computer crashed and microsoft would not recognize my key to reload it. Still trying to find my way around in the program.
