What is the difference between the Office 2013 suites and Office 365 plans?

Microsoft uses the name “Office 365” for products that include cloud services, such as additional SkyDrive online storage, Skype minutes for home use, Lync web conferencing or Exchange Online hosted email for businesses. Cloud services are features that are enabled over the Internet. Most Office 365 plans also include the full-featured Office 2013 applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. All Office 365 products, such as Office 365 Home Premium, are paid for on a subscription basis, annually. Active subscribers will receive future rights to version upgrades as a benefit of their subscription. Entitlements vary by product.

Platform for Display: PC/Mac Download Verified Purchase
I gave this 4 stars because the process was a bit confusing.

I purchased this product and was redirected to Microsoft Office to provide my student email and verify I'm a student. I was then able to create an account on Microsoft's website and download the product directly through Microsoft. When I went to install the product after the download, I was asked to provide an activation key. They key I initially provided was the one of my software download orders page on Amazon, to which it told me the key was invalid. I became frustrated and started reading all these reviews and horror stories, so I immediately called Microsoft (I don't recommend this, as I was transferred to 3 different departments and wound up figuring out the problem on my own). YOU CANNOT USE THE PRODUCT KEY AMAZON PROVIDES. It won't work. You need to choose the second option when you're installing the product. I don't remember the exact wording, but it's along the lines of using your Microsoft account. It will ask you to enter the email address you provided to create your Microsoft account and the password. Installing the product this way worked perfectly!

Platform for Display: PC/Mac Key Card Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
With this latest iteration of its Office suite, Microsoft has joined Adobe and several makers of computer-protection programs in the product-rental business. Although my preference is to purchase what is in essence a lifetime license for a product, I've spoken with a number of students who would rather spread their budgets among multiple rental programs. Therefore, I wanted to explore the benefits and drawbacks for myself. I also realize that if this paradigm takes off, more developers may migrate to time-limited sales, and may even follow Adobe's total shift to solely timed-use licenses.

Thus, I am focusing on the pros and cons of "renting" vs. "buying" as I experienced them with installing and using this version of Office and its ancillary products on my Mac system. Overall, I was satisfied with Office 365, as compared with my existing Office 2008 for Mac suite. Although there are noticeable enhancements, there was nothing particularly amazing.

The quick takeaway: Although I appreciate some of the enhancements, if acquiring a timed-use key were the only way I could get this newer version of Office, I would not upgrade from Office 2008. This is because I need heavy, ongoing access to the Office suite. When I need to upgrade my earlier version of Office, I will pay the differential for a "permanent" purchase, even though I successfully activated this four-year subscription. Please see the "Cautions" section of my review for the reasons -- there are several issues that Microsoft hasn't addressed.

ISSUE #1 Originally I got a one-month free trial of Office 365 Home Premium. It took hours and hours of tech calls to install because it kept freezing. Eventually, I ended up reinstalling WINDOWS 7, after waiting hours for the disc to download from their site so that I could reinstall it. However, once I reinstalled my MICROSOFT operating system, I had no issues installing MICROSOFT's office suite. Switching to a three-month free trial of University was no issue once that one-month trial of Home Premium was up.

ISSUE #2 They recommend a minimum RAM for this, I think 1GB. My laptop has 8GB of RAM, and it still slowed down considerably when Microsoft Word was running and I was trying to edit pictures in a document. Clearly this product was designed for almost only the high-end laptops, and even barely for those.

ISSUE #3 Instead of installing the product and downloading the occasional service pack like with previous versions, this version has you download the software from the Internet (which takes a couple hours on a 1gbps Ethernet connection) and then downloads updates as they arrive. This creates major issues for the program. For the past several days it's told me to "click here to install updates" (a bubble at the bottom of the screen where the clock is). So I click it and it disappears without doing anything. Finally, yesterday it decided to install the updates. Normally when a program updates one needs to restart their computer. However, it never told me, so I didn't. I tried using Office, and it told me that it had "stopped working". So I tried to do the built-in "repair", which froze on "quick repair". I Ctrl+Shift+Esc to close the program and had to restart my computer.

We're sorry to hear about your install experience. Download times can vary by internet connection speed. Microsoft Office uses Click-to-Run deployment technology which allows you to start using Office while the full download is being completed in the background. For best results, we recommend that you do not disconnect from the internet until the download has completed.

Our support team is equipped to assist with these issues. If ever you experience an issue, please reach out to our team with your PC manufacturer information so that we can direct you to the support team that will be able to get you up and running.

We can be reached here http://msft.it/UniversitySupport_a or on Twitter @Office.

Platform for Display: PC/Mac Key Card
I'm going to preface this review with this: If you insist on getting Office through Amazon, choose this PC Key Card option. Do not do the download. Amazon really messed it up (you can see my review on the downloadable Office University)

It gets you 27gb free of skydrive.

It has awesome templates.

When you type, it's so smooth. You'll know what I mean when you see it. Typing is pretty cool. =)

It's a 4 year subscription. Perfect.. because in 4 years, they'll have a better product. And I didn't have to throw down $400 to have an old version.
