1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good revamp at all October 17, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I have been using QuickBooks Premier 2010 quite happily for a couple of years now (and previous versions for 15 years before that) but I need to upgrade to a three user license - I thought that since I have to buy two more licenses anyway and they all have to be the same version, this would be the time to upgrade - I ordered one copy of the newly released Premier 2013 to try out.
I am glad I only ordered one - This is awful!
I just returned it today under the 60 day satisfaction guarantee and ordered Premier 2012 which, hopefully, judging by my research online, does not suck so bad. If 2012 works out when I receive it, I will snag two more copies before they are fully superseded.
The deal killer in 2013 is the 'new' interface - Everything else seems to work just like my 2010 version only illegibly. In other words, 'upgrade' only if you think your current interface is too friendly.
The first major disaster in this version is the light-gray text and icons on a dark-gray background which make you have to squint and lean into the monitor to make out.
The second disaster is the size of the font and text spacing on the sub-pages is HUGE. I have a standard 1920x1200 monitor and i like to keep my reminders window to no more than a screen size tall - In other words, I like to see all my current information in one all-encompassing view. After converting to 2013, I have to page down TWICE to see the exact same information as in my pre-converted 2010 version.
Aside from those two points, there are a lot of smaller things - Gray forms that make the text on them hard to read, awkward ribbon navigation which could be entertaining if you like to play hide and seek with your icons.

QuickBooks Customer Care saysOctober 19, 2012
P. Clough,

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear you didn't like the new design of QuickBooks 2013. We've had other users with the same concerns regarding color, scrolling and font sizes. We are not planning any drastic changes to the new design however, we actively monitor user feedback and will continue to make updates and changes in response to customer requests. Please feel free to continue to provide feedback from within your QuickBooks product by going to Help/Send Feedback Online. Please be specific the feedback is for 2013 as it will default to the product you are using (2012.)

Thank you again for your feedback.

Platform for Display:PC Disc|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Many reviews comment on the color scheme. At first I was skeptical about what they meant, but after using the program; yes it is a problem. I am going to cover that as well as several other points important to know.

Back up your company files right before loading the new version 2013. It only takes a second, and makes your test drive easily reversible.

You have a choice of jumping off of the diving board by loading the new version of QB 2013 by overwriting the old version, and then converting your existing company files but unconverting them, and restoring them is a major hassle. So the following is important to know.

You can run both versions of QuickBooks (in my case 2010 and 2013) concurrently/at the same time. So you are keeping your old version of QuickBooks intact while you try out the new one. (They currently have a 60 day return policy so take it for a test drive) This is important. When installing it asks you, "Do you want to overwrite your old version?" If you want to test it out and not go through the rigamarole of reconverting, or restoring your old version in case you want to send the new version back, say NO by choosing the option above it in order to write it to a new location. They already have a folder designated to do that when you choose that option and it is called "QuickBooks 2013". Don't worry about choosing your industry edition; you can always change it later from within QuickBooks. Note: If you install it on more than one computer you must install the same industry edition. This way you can try QuickBooks without over writing your existing version, OR converting your current company files over to the 2013 version either. So play with the sample file, or do as I did if you are creating a new company in addition to the old one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from Quickbooks - From a longtime user. December 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I have been a longtime Quickbooks user, but would warn anyone who is considering purchasing Quickbooks to look elsewhere. As has been said, the company is horribly mismanaged. If I ran my business like Intuit, I would be out of business. I suspect the only reason they can sell their product at all is that people have been using it for years and are reluctant to switch to a different program and try and transfer their data. If you never need support, you might be OK, but the day WILL come when you need to call Intuit, and then you will regret your decision. Read the other reviews...

I have been trying to activate my 2013 payroll subscription all day. I have been transferred and transferred and now am being told that they do not support Amazon purchased products! What kind of nonsense is this? Who made the decision to not support products sold by the worlds largest retailer?!! This is a factory sealed, new box manufactured by them! Every time I call customer "service" I get someone who can hardly speak english, and have to repeat myself over and over. As a person who owns multiple businesses, Intuit has the worst customer service of any of the hundreds of companies I deal with regularly. They charge for everything, and there are irritating pop up ads where they try and sell you on additional services. If you don't keep up to date on releases, possibly only because you don't like the new versions, they cut off your ability to download transactions. Planned obsolescence with an end to generate more money.

Intuit, if you're reading this, you have to make changes. In this electronic society, unhappy customers have a voice that can be heard everywhere though product reviews.

To everyone else, do yourself a favor and choose another company.
