4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the upgrade November 16, 2009
By JWin
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've been a Quicken user for almost 20 years and my last version was 2008. I was hesitant trying 2010 so soon after its release because I, along with many others, have been stung by bugs that have plagued earlier versions and have previously taken months for Intuit to fix. I'm glad I made the switch.

- 1 data file instead of 6 (plus an Attachments folder). It was about time! The single file at 101MB was a little larger then my previous files at 96MB.
- MUCH more resource friendly. The 2008 version frequently took up 1GB or more of RAM on my 3GB Vista Home Premium system. This version takes up only about 1/10 that. The many accounts I have (credit card, investment, banking) and the size of my file are probably atypical so your resource usage may vary.
- Faster loading of the application and updating of accounts. Hitting One Step Update is MUCH faster than before. One Step Update was the one action that slowed my system down and upped the memory usage quite a bit under 2008 and earlier versions. It still ups the memory usage but not nearly to the extent of before.
- More stability. 2008 used to crash intermittently - during One Step Updates. It might be too early to tell but so far no crashes.

- As other users have mentioned, the UI hadn't changed much in many years. This version is certainly no exception. It's still intuitive enough for new users to get up and running quickly. I'm not sure about MS Money users though (I tried MS Money a couple years back and I was thoroughly confused!).
- Memory leak? Previous version have suffered from this so it's nothing new. When I first start this version, it uses 57MB of RAM. After having it up for an hour and running One Step Update a few times, the RAM usage went up to 140MB.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quicken - Now the Only Game in Town December 19, 2009
Access Method:Thin Software Download|Platform for Display:PC Download
I have been a Quicken user for about a decade. I previously had Quicken 2007 installed on my PC, but since Quicken fixes it that you have to purchase a new version every 3 years if you want to download transactions from your financial institutions, it was time for an update. Quicken tends to incrementally add new features from year-to-year, so if it were not mandatory to update periodically in order to download transactions, I would probably update less frequently. For the features I regularly use, I see very difference between 2007 and 2010.

I prefer to do a clean install, so I first uninstalled my previous version of Quicken. When uninstalling, Quicken leaves behind your data files to use in the new version. This latest update process was probably the smoothest I've experienced. I have about 10 years of data, and Quicken 2010 converted the previous data files to the current single .qdf data file in about 5 minutes. With that, my preferences were maintained and all accounts were up-to-date.

Here are the reasons I use Quicken rather than simply rely on my online banking website:
1) convenience of having transactions and balances from all financial institutions in one place
2) ability to separate business and personal expenses
3) makes it easy to find taxable deductions without having to use additional tax programs
4) by downloading transactions every couple of days, one can get a jump start on finding fraudulent charges if they exist
5) ability to see the equity built up in my home from month-to-month
6) built in check register

Quicken also has the ability to keep track of your investments. However, if you're an active day trader, you would be better served with a dedicated software program for tracking your securities.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forced to upgrade January 10, 2010
Access Method:Thin Software Download|Platform for Display:PC Download
I have been using some version of Quicken since 1995 and am happy with the software. However, I am not happy with the fact that Intuit forces you to upgrade the software every 3 years although there is no compelling reason to do so. If you download your bank and credit card transactions, you have no choice but to upgrade because Intuit says that the older version will not support the download any more. This appears to be a business tactic to continue the revenue stream and not for helping the customer or for technical reasons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upgrading from Quicken 2007 to Quicken 2010 December 2, 2009
By Arin
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I have been a Quicken user since 1995, and upgraded each year up until 2000, and then every third year. I knew that if the upgrade did not occur now, I will most probably have issues with One Step Updates for my banking / financial transaction downloads. Being a Home & Small Business User, unless a deal is available, it makes it hard to justify paying $100 every year or every 2 years. Anyway here are my first impressions after using it for a day.

I upgraded from Quicken Home and Business 2007 to Quicken H&B 2010. I had nearly 25MB of data in 5 Quicken 2007 files, plus another MB for Quicken Home Inventory. The install, software update took 4 minutes, including uninstall of the old quicken version. The personal data / online banking conversion to the newer version and one-step update took an additional 8 minutes. Like every previous version since 1999, Quicken added 5 icons to my desktop, including 4 weblinks to get Quicken-marketed products (message to quicken - stop cross marketing. its annoying).

The GUI (interface) is different from 2007, the software loads faster, less of a memory hog, and there are lots of bells and whistle (including tags for the transactions, different way to show upcoming payments etc.). There is always a learning curve when you use a newer version (after 3 years of using the old one) and so far what I see is a new paint job on an old car with newer version of older gadgets. Moreover they never upgraded the built-in Home Inventory Manager (which has the same DOS-Excel version since 1997), because they tried to sell a GUI-based buggy version as a stand-alone product and failed.

This was a required upgrade for me, but unless your quicken software is circa 2007 and prior, and you do not need to download your financial data, then there is no need to upgrade to this version.

I will provide another update after exploring what more this version has to offer.
