3.0 out of 5 stars Upgraders Beware - Online Payment Method Changed September 5, 2001
Checkfree, the folks who service online payments for Money and Quicken banks, have mandated a new system that appears in Money 2002 and Quicken 2002: Once you upgrade to one of these products, there's no going back because your bank will change the way they handle your electronic transactions.
Further, Money has made a terrible change in electronic payment processing in 2002: Everytime you enter a new payment, the program puts you on hold while it connects to the bank and downloads the transaction. Yes, you're reading it right: you have to wait for each payment to be processed individually (no longer in batches).
Microsoft Money tech support says that many, many people are screaming about this; so much so that it may encourage the powers-that-be to issue a fix for this version.
Also, the fact that they try to force you to use a Microsoft Passport password is an incredible pain...but it can be disabled. The insidious thing about Microsoft is that they make it unpleasant and difficult to disable (repeatedly asking you, each of the next three times you start the program, if you're sure about your decision not to use Passport).
Otherwise, though, the program is sound. That said, had I known what I now know, I would not have upgraded from Money 2001.
By the way, I'm a Quicken refugee -- got tired of that programs' continuing instability. A friend told me today that Quicken 2002 is a complete disaster...so much so that he emailed the President of Intuit (and got a prompt and personal apology).
Good luck with your choices...

2.0 out of 5 stars If it's going to be Ad Supported it should be free November 9, 2001
I purchased Money 2002 as an upgrade to Money 2000.. Now I'm wishing I would have stuck with 2K. The biggest grip I have is the fact that on every page there's advertisments for MS partners or MSN etc. If that's not bad enough, everytime you update Money from the Internet you get these nice icons placed on your desktop for Ameritrade and such.. Delete them and next time you update there back. If MS wants to sale ad space by placing ads on it's products and forcing users to live with their desktop setting the way MS wants it to be, then the product should be free.. Kinda like those "Free" Internet service providers... But then again, MS tends to force it's users to live with a lot. Secondly, if your like me (pay check to pay check) knowing what bills lie between those pay checks is a must. In Money 2000 this was a sinch, just glance at the detailed view and your set, in 2002 it's a lot harder. You still get the detailed view, but it's a slimmer "simpler" view, you do get the nifty calander at the bottom, so to view what falls between different paydays, you have to click on each of the bolded days and scratch down the bills on a piece of paper. My overall suggestion, if your using an older release, stick with it. 2002 Upgrade is a waste of money.

2.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic product but....not worth the upgrade September 10, 2001
By A Customer
If you already use Money 2001 or earlier, this upgrade is, for the most part, a waste of your time and cash. A recent Money 2001 user, I was immediately attracted to the new feature of 2002 that automatically updates account register information. This, I thought, was worth the upgrade alone since I would no longer have to spend time downloading all of my account information. Hey, it would be done for me! How easy could this get? What I found out was that in order to use this nifty feature I would have to pay my bank $2.95 per month to interface with Money. And, this only covered 10 downloads. Additional downloads would be 50-cents each. Because Money automatically updates your registers each time you open it, this could get costly. Imagine, if I didn't want to get charged more than my monthly fee, I would only be able to open money 10 times! This was ridiculous since I am already able to download my statements for free. So, check before you buy because this is really a financial institution's rule and not money. If you will not incur any charges to use the background banking feature, then I would say go for it. If, on the other hand you have to dip into your account, better stay with Money 2001. Rather annoying with this edition is the passport sign-in. Others have complained about it and I thought it would be something I could get used to. But, it is aggravating and I would have preferred a choice of whether to utilize my passport account. In the end though, Money is a fantastic program and worth checking out. Only, if you're a current user or even brand new to financial software, save cash and aggravation by purchasing 2001. Do your homework! You'll be glad you did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much improved over Money 2001 March 21, 2002
By A Customer
I was a Quicken user for 9 years and made the switch to Money 2000, then 2001. I recently downloaded Money 2002 Trial version and was very happy with it which lead to my purchase of Money 2002 Deluxe.
Here's some baseline stats on my system:
AMD Athlon 1G with 256 MB RAM. My money file is about 17MB large (containing all transactions since 1991).
Things I really liked:
- reports run much faster now. (in Money 2001, reports used to take 30-60 seconds; now they take less than 10 seconds; this is still much slower than Quicken's, but is improving).
- "Income vs. Spending Over time" graph is now part of the report. This allows for graphing monthly income vs. expense side-by-side. This was alwasy available in Quicken, but not in Money till 2002.
- Very clean and nice GUI
- Customizable home page with Follow-up notes, Spending Progress, Flagged transactions.
- Reconciliation with online bank or charge card downloads are much more intuitive and easy over 2001. [Make sure you turn off automatic Accept in Options].
- transaction data entry, download reconciliation, and reports all have their performances improved much.
- auto backup of the 17MB file is much quicker now than in 2001.
Other reviewers have disliked some Money behaviors, but most of them can be changed via "Options".
- ads can be turned off
- registration reminders can be turned off
- MoneySide can be turned off
- Auto Accepts during download can be turned off
Overall, MS Money 2002 is much improved over 2001 in performance and features and GUI.
