A lone voice in the crowd?
on February 13, 2005
I've been using Quicken 2002 Home & Business for a couple years now, and recently got a notice from Intuit that it's support ends in April. After reading the overwhelmingly negative feedback here, I was wary about upgrading to 2005. But then two things occurred to me:
(a.) When I upgraded from Quicken 1999 to 2002 I read the same dismal feedback. And that upgrade went fine. and (b.) People seldom take the time to write positive feedback. It's usually only those folks that experience a negative upgrade that vent. (And perhaps, rightfully so)
So I decided to upgrade. The software installed fine, and both my home and business files where correctly imported. All accounts continue to download just as they did before. The new interface will take some getting used to, but otherwise, everything is as it was before.
The only small glitch I experienced was that Quicken had a tough time connecting to the internet, but I believe that might have been user error during initial selection of my connection.
I'm still amazed the product does not better support tracking of US Savings Bonds, but that's a different story.
Overall, I'm happy with the upgrade and have experienced none of the issues other reviewers have posted.
