Is it really free?

Pros: I received the rebate.
Cons: Just wanted to warn those of you who think it's "free" after mail-in-rebate. It is not really "free." First of all, unless you are a risk-taker, you will send the rebate via certified mail, which will set you back around $3.75, there's no way around this because you have to send in the original U...
Pros: I've used trials of Nuance before and it does a great job. I found this on discount and with a mail-in-rebate. I recommend this product to anyone needing to convert their PDFs into editable documents.
Cons: A real clunker. The firm is so busy telling how easy the product is to use that it forgets to actually provide the new P'DF Converter 8 buyer how to put the product into use. I tried to download and print the Quick Reference Guide. All that resulted was a Fax form. I don't have fax and, like more...
Pros: The software itself is great, when/if you can activate it.
Cons: The product keeps asking you to re-activate every few days. It also only allows you 7 loads. Over the past year I've had to re-install the OS on several computers on my home network. Each time I re installed this software on the same computer it counted as one install. Turns out I got stuck on my...
Summary: I bought Nuance pdf Converter 8.0 Professional and just love that product. Nuance PDF converter 8.0 is a waste of time, save your money for the professional version which works just great!!!!!
Pros: It converts documents but not more than that
Cons: Doesn't allow you to edit documents as the professional version does. I guess if you are looking just for a conversion software is is fine. But got spoiled with professional version and was greatly disappointing with this product.
Summary: Despite the time and aggravation, always follow through to get what's advertised, to get what's rightfully yours.
Pros: Love the software from V. 6.0 forward even tho' it's a bit cumbersome. I'm a WordPerfect holdout, and WP's Reveal Codes function fits hand-in-glove with PDF Converter. Also, I have to revise my classroom materials annually -- up to 100 pages -- and PDF Converter saves me so much time and pain. Do...
Cons: Fraudulent rebate offers through Helgeson Did two rebates recently, PDF Converter and another software program. Filled out all the forms, included all required materials, and was refused on both for bogus "date" claims. The Nuance rejection letter said, "The purchase date on the sales receipt doe...
Pros: cannot find anything useful. converts pdf text files easily - of course - but OCR capability is disappointing. 10 year old Paperport worked reasonably well. Altenative software is better choice.
Cons: the registration software is nasty. it crippled my netbook. there must have been 1000 line entries of "flexnet" in the registry which I had to remove one by one. could not find the removal software discussed on net. computer would no longer hibernate. battery sucked dry twice as fast. this is vir...
