4.0 out of 5 stars To Rent or To Buy...? February 1, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download|Verified Purchase
For those that don't know Office 365 is basically a 1 year lease of "Office Professional", with some bonuses (80 Skype minutes, an additional 20G of sky drive space, and Office on Demand). They want people to go to a leased model - and who can blame them. It provides a steady stream of revenue, and they only have to maintain the "latest" version. If everyone is on the latest product, no one has to maintain security updates and patches for software that was released years ago.

Also by dangling the "5 license carrot" this product becomes very appealing - especially to those of us that want the additional software such as outlook / publisher / one note. This breaks down to less than $2 per month per computer - Giving "Free" a run for it's money.

If you are looking for the 'core' office items (Word / Excel / PowerPoint) to use on one or perhaps two PC's - Simply buy Office Home and Student.

PRO's of 365:

1. Price - If you are comparing 365 to the Office Professional then spending $100 VS $400 (or even $219 for Office Home/Business) is tempting. What really adds to the temptation of 365 is that you can install it on 5 machines as opposed to one machine on the other platforms. So if you need office on your home computer, laptop, and the kids school computer - office 365 may be the route to take; And you would still have 2 licenses left. If you make full use of the 5 licenses you are only paying $1.66 per month per computer.

2. FULL office suite. Your get all 7 software pieces found in Office Pro - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Access.

3. Virtual Office - If for whatever reason you don't have your computer with you, you can access 'office on demand'.

"Purchased" Office365 and was mislead from the start. Login was corrupt and spent hours trying to solve it and after speaking with seven, yes seven Microsoft customer support individuals, they could still not explain the problem but confirmed I had an account. Two hours later without a solution, a logical explanation or an apology for wasting my time, I got so frustrated that I asked for a refund. Next hour was a process of being transferred to the cancellation department (each time I was transferred information was not forwarded to the next agent so groundhog day each time and the whole story had to be retold each time!) Oh, by the way, the person who cancels, can't refund! What idiot created this system? Transferred yet again to another department: refunds, and agent said I was not entitled to a refund since I had been issued an active account (the previous agent promised me that she would transfer me to someone who would provide a refund). Explained the whole situation again and had the same sentence about "an active account" parroted back to me each time with a mechanical lack of caring or concern for the customer. End result? No solution, no refund, but thank goodness no year contract with paying for unusable and inferior services. BUYER BEWARE!!! Microsoft does not have their act together, has customer service that makes cable television companies look good, and will not be able to compete with iCloud or Google in this arena. Review written not by a casual user, but an IT professional that runs a business with multiple MS licenses and an Exchange server. This is the first review I have taken the time to write, so accept this as a barometer of my frustration: category five on its way...

1.0 out of 5 stars Lousy customer support March 14, 2013
By David
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download
O'k, I made a mistake and hit the wrong key on my e-mail address when I registered the product. I deserve to pay for that. I have talked to seven different people on the help desk, 5 level 1's and 2 level 2's. Keep in mind that each call takes at least 45 minutes and their wait-time music/static is torture. I have been given 4 different problem codes. They have promised to look into it and call me back in 3 days, 3 times - they do not call back on the day they say they will. Twice they have given me times as in - between 12 and 2pm CST. The first time they called back at 2:30pm, the second they didn't call back at all.

It has been two weeks since this mess started, and they still cannot give me a copy of the software. But they have "escalated" the problem three times. The e-mail address I gave them is off by one letter, it does not exist as an e-mail address. This should not cause two weeks of fruitless research on their part.

MicroSoft has become too big to succeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good So Far January 30, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac Download
I just installed this after buying from Microsoft. I have to tell you that it went in cleanly and when I went to the second computer all my settings are there and the install only takes a short time. I was able to set both up within an hour and using the microsoft account ties in to everything very well. I know some people are hesitant to buy a subscription and a 'cloud' version but for me the subscription saves money as I have 4 computers and this will work on all of them for all users that log in depending who grabs the laptop first. Plus this does work just fine in offline mode with the only exception is if you store you documents to skydrive. However I used the skydrive app so it saves a local copy and when on the internet it syncs so I won't have issues.

I know people hate change so I don't expect everyone to like this but for me it works. I also don't mind Windows 8 after getting used to the navigation. Once again this is called innovation and if you are an early adopter the cost isn't that great. I paid 40 bucks for Windows 8 Pro and Media center. In my case change has been decent and I will understand some pain but I have worked through it. Just wish the Surface Pro wasn't so costly!!! Make it more reasonable and I am in for that as well. Yes Apple has its place and so does Android but for me and productivity Windows is the choice. (I do own some apple and android products as well).
