Product is a great product. However

Summary: Product is a great product. However, I was led to believe that this was an actual piece of software on CD or DVD. I ordered this particular item because my internet service is the pits and even though my provider claims they are upgrading the internet in my area, my internet service is so slow I...
Excerpt: It wasn't a big jump from the 2010 to 2013 version. How files are found/opened has changed some and mostly for the better. Ninety percent of my work is in Word, so I'll focus my comments on that part of the system.
Summary: Still a great product. Just the one inconvenience I ran into.
Pros: Easy on the eyes and runs smoothly. I like the way they have organized this new office product. Doesn't feel as cluttered or bunched up. Took a little while to learn where certain things were placed.
Cons: Doesn't come with a CD to make for easy reloading. Had a problem with one of my users who didn't remember how they set up there Microsoft account tied to there product key. So instead of having a convenient cd to just reload it real quick I had to call Microsoft and go through this round about wa...
Summary: I guess that I will get used to the look. It is already growing on me. I probably could still be using office 95 for the functionality I need.
Pros: Installed it a few days ago on a Windows 7 computer. I have Office 2013 Professional Plus. My version was purchased thru a use at home contract my company has with Microsoft. Cost was $9.95 plus $13.and change for the disc if I wanted it. The cost was the only reason I updated from 2010 version. ...
Cons: If you need it buy it. The file format changes again. This version will open any older version in compatibility mode. I am not sure if your new file will open in office 2010. Eventually all will be resolved. You can save your work in older file formats.
Pros: I'm using this on Windows 7 and not Windows 8, so there might be features I'm missing out on, but this version doesn't seem to offer a lot more than Office 2010. It has a nicer style that matches to the style of Windows 8, and it looks nicer than the 2010 version (to me). It offers almost the exa...
Cons: It's not different enough from 2010 to shell out the $130+ for. It does look nicer, but there really aren't any noticeable differences over 2010 that justify the cost. If you already have 2010, stick with it, as you already have almost the exact same features as 2013.
Summary: I like Office 2013 Pro. I use Word, Excel, Outlook all the time. Yes, the UI is different, some like it more, some less. Well, it's a new trend, new fashion, I don't totally agree with it, but... I got used to it very quickly. The Office itself is very reliable and quite fast.
