Some background about me :

I have been a Quicken user for over 15 years. I am a computer tech and fix hardware and software issues for a living. I own the business. Therefore I know about computers and I know about running a good business.

My Impressions about Quicken :

I have just upgraded (or rather purchased a full version as Intuit doesn't ever offer "Upgrade" pricing...they make you pay the full price. Thank God for Amazon!) from Quicken Home and Business 2011. I normally would have waited for the mandatory 3-year "forced" upgrade Intuit always imposes like clockwork, but my 2011 version has stopped working in that the "One-Step-Update" function has stopped downloading transactions from my bank for my checking accounts. This has been the case for about 6 months. I've tried multiple times to get the issue resolved through my own skills, through my bank and through Intuit tech support. The upgrade to 2012 failed to resolve the issue. Manual exports from my bank still import but the auto-downloads are still broken. I've tried every trick in the book. I've verified my data files are A-OK and not corrupted. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and a ton of other things and can verify the problem is not my computer or files. It is either the software coding or Intuit's servers. I have been in detailed lengthy conversations with the knowledgeable techs at the bank and am confident the problem is not at the banking institution.

Unfortunately, their tech support is a joke. They either are unresponsive, push blame elsewhere or accept the blame and say they are aware of the problem and working on the issue but it never gets fixed. You get a different story every time you call depending on who is answering the phone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely bug-ridden November 5, 2011
By Kaui
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Quicken user for 20 years. Don't buy this update -- almost everything I tried to do, I found a bug in the software (downloading & accepting transactions, entering investment transactions)...Felt like it must still be the alpha version. After much frustration, I am giving up and going back to Quicken 2010. And, by the way, back up your files in a separate place before you try 2012, otherwise you wont be able to revert back if you don't like it.

More generally, I am pretty fed up with Intuit's updates, which seem to repeatedly introduce needless UI changes and new bugs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning -- Don't buy this product November 2, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I've never written an Amazon review before, but I feel I have a moral obligation to warn people away from this product.

I've been using Quicken since 1993, and have been very happy with it. The automatic download of transactions from my Bank (Bank of America), has never really worked, but I've always been able to manually download .qfx or .qif files and import them into Quicken.

This does not work with Quicken 2012, which I recently upgraded to (what a mistake!)

I contacted Quicken support and told them that every time I tried to download transactions, I get a "Quicken Server Error".

After a few days, they told me they had fixed their "script" on their server. It still didn't work. Their support people asked me to send the logs (again). I sent them. They said the logs were corrupted. I sent them again. They said I sent the wrong log files. I sent them again. Finally, I contacted Quicken Support using their "online chat". I was able to confirm that all of the files I had previously sent were in fact correct (and yes, I sent them again to be sure, 5 more times). I'm not really sure if their support people are technically inept, or if they are just giving me a run-around, but they are definitely not working to solve my problem.

I've wasted a huge amount of time trying to get this problem fixed.

Unless you are willing to sacrifice about $1000.00 of your personal time trying to get this product to work, I strongly recommend that you try a different product from a different company. I've been working with their support people for two weeks now, and nothing has been resolved.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice New Features - With Bugs Yet Again October 4, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
First off the new features are great. After using this a couple of days I am very disappointed. I did a clean installation on a new hard disk and basic features that worked fine in 2011 no longer work. Online Banking returns a cc-501 error code and despite troubleshooting instructions from the Quicken website I can not get it to work. Memorize Payee no longer works. Used to when you type a Payee Name it would automatically be memorized. In every version of Quicken I have used the last 15 years this worked fine. I verifed preferences were set up correctly. I have to manually right click on the Payee to select Memorize and do it manually. What a hassle. How did something so basic get thru testing? I am using the R2 Update which downloaded automatically when I installed it from CD.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Say No November 19, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I've been using Quicken since the mid 90s. I upgrade every 2 years. I upgraded to 2012. In less than 24 hours I uninstalled and went back to 2010. Why?

All the good parts of Quicken disappeared and all the bad and frustrating parts remained and were expanded upon. It's ridiculously full of useless graphs and trying to drill down to what makes up those graphs is cumbersome when it actually works. The entire budget section has been totally revamped into an unrecognizable mess with absolutely no ability to customize the screen into one that actually contains some useful information rather than the lines and lines and liens of red and green bars. In the middle of my dismay, I get messages from quicken saying the date has changed and quicken needs to restarted...huh??? Drill downs that should work don't. It saved my reports but I can no longer see what makes up the numbers.

This release is so bad, and my confidence is so shaken with Intuit's chosen path for "improving" this program, I'm not sure when I'll upgrade again, if ever. I did not see one useful change to this program that warranted my keeping 2012 installed. Cost me $85...wish I'd not trusted my upgrade policy and read some reviews before buying. Don't make the same mistake.

Just say no.
