  • 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.

The worst software purchase ever.

Alexander E., Newegg
14 October 2013
  • 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 primary computer without the product. Now just recently I was prompted to re-activate on another computer. When I did so it rejected it. Their so called help line is useless ...

WARNING

Ryan R., Newegg

  • Pros: It's cheaper then Adobe Acrobat
  • Cons: Two months after owning this software I formatted my PC. When I attempted to download and reinstall this software I found out that Nuance charges nearly 1/10 of this software cost for a "service" that allow customers to download their software up to 2 years after purchase. Customer service was not able to help me either. There are better alternatives than Nuance.

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.

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 virusware at best.

Used to be good, not any more

SCOTT W., Newegg

  • Summary: I've used PDF Converter since version 4. It was a bit buggy back then, but they improved. That is they used to improve. Version 8 has more problems than I've seen in a while. I'm also dismayed at the price increase. It's almost double the cost it used to be. At least it's still cheaper than Acrobat. But, due to the bugs and issues, I'm not sure it's worth it any more.
  • Pros: Fast and easy PDF file editing, creating and printing.
  • Cons: Very buggy compared to older versions.

get something else

Peter E., Newegg
13 January 2013
  • Pros: Allowed me to make pdfs
  • Cons: Another case of copy protection gone berserk. It required me to go through the entire "activation" process every time I opened up the program. Going to their "support" was of no use. I stopped using it, wasted my money.
