  • Pros: Cheap to buy
  • 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...

The worst software purchase ever.

  • 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...

Not impressed with with

Teresa R., Newegg

  • 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.

don't waste your time - deserves no stars!

  • Summary: a waste of time and money
  • 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...

useless for most

Upmanu L., Newegg
22 September 2012
  • Summary: would not buy products from this company again
  • Pros: for those who cannot deal with a free convertor this may be useful
  • Cons: I had the 5.0 Professional version of this product ordered 8.0 because they regularly harass you with upgrade offers and tell you how the older versions are no longer recommended for use with windows 7. I uninstalled the older version, and installed the new one -- this lacks the pdf application -...
