2.0 out of 5 stars Quicken Users Don't Waste Your Money On This Upgrade October 5, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Summary: If you are new to Quicken, it is a very good program and worth using. However, Quicken 2012 has very few changes over 2011 and is an unnecessary upgrade.

I have been using Quicken for at least the past ten years. I have upgraded each year or two and by the 2010 upgrade I was becoming frustrated with the program because it was becoming slower and less user friendly. Then I read that Quicken had purchased "Mint", an online product, and had hired the founder of Mint to upgrade the Quicken product. I purchased Quicken 2011 and was extremely pleased with changes. The format was much easier to use and the program was beginning to be more flexible.

I have used Quicken 2011 extensively over the past year and throughout that time I was anxiously awaiting Quicken 2012. I figured that if 2011 was such a great improvement, that 2012 would be even better. I have been watching Amazon for the release date of 2012 and downloaded it the day it came out.

Well imagine my disappointment when I found that 2012 is just 2011 with a larger font option. Here is a link to the list of new features of 2012 over 2011 from the quicken website. [...] As you can see the improvements are minor. I am very disappointed as I expected much more.

Anyway I am a loyal Quicken user and will continue to be but if I knew what I know now I would not have wasted my money on the upgrade and would have stuck with 2011 for another year.

NOTE: I checked the other 7 glowing "reviews" that have have been written before me and I find them suspect. All seven were written on the same day and each "reviewer" has not submitted any other reviews to Amazon besides Quicken/Quickbooks products. I rely on Amazons reviews for my purchasing decisions (see my previous reviews) and to me these reviews look like more like social marketing than honest user opinions.

2.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same October 5, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc
I skipped 2011 and am upgrading straight from 2010 to 2012.

I (try to) use almost all the features in Quicken, so if you just want something very basic to keep track of your checking account balance, many of these comments may not apply to you.

Many of the same problems still exist:
1. The tax planning center forms still don't "remember" which radio buttons you clicked on when entering projected amounts. When selecting other projection options, the numbers don't always change like they're supposed (but other times they do). Tax planning numbers randomly change or get reset back to earlier values. This issue has been around for me at least since 2010.
2. I get more frequent and severe errors when updating my accounts. This portion of the program was supposed to be faster than ever, but it's at least as slow as before.

Other things I don't like:
1. You have to register just to update your accounts online. It irritates me when companies sneakily sell you a product without telling you that you will essentially be forced to register.
2. I haven't been impressed with Quicken customer support. They have yet to be able to address any issues I've had. Usually I get some variation on "that's a known problem" (many of which have been known about for years!) or "you need to manually rebuild your data file" (which fixed some problems but not most of them).

Things I like:
1. The interface is cleaner and simpler. Many of the unnecessary and duplicated buttons have been removed (I think this happened in the 2011 version). However, it's almost too clean since it takes longer to do some tasks. So some of the changes were good, others not so much.
2. At least it's consistent.

2.0 out of 5 stars More bugs, few new features, save your money. October 5, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I have been a Quicken user for 10 plus years. Unlike 2011... 2012 is a disappointment. Just a month or so before a new release my credit union stops being able to download using Quicken with the CC-501 error. I have come to accept this, and usually purchasing the new version corrects this problem immediately. This year it didn't fix the problem, along with the bugs, black screens, hang ups when using the investment account register and trying to delete a downloaded transaction etc. Support acknowlegdes the problem, has no fix and has stopped responding to my inquiries about a resolution. Save your $$$ and stick with 2011. I have already requested a refund from Intuit, so far no response.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quicken Customer Service is the worst in the industry December 1, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I am posting this here to warn others that if/when you get errors don't expect to get help from their customer service group.

After recieving a serie of 501-CC errors (not allowing me to download info from my bank) here is what their India based customer service reps told me. This is a transcript of our conversation.

Gaurav: Hi, my name is Gaurav. Thank you for contacting Quicken, please allow me a moment to read your question.
Gaurav: Hi Chris, how are you doing today?
Chris Toliver: I am okay.
Chris Toliver: So at the end of the day I am just checking on the status of Incident: 111112-000328. I haven't heard back from you guys in three weeks.
Gaurav: Cris, your case is still pending with Quicken research team.
Chris Toliver: do you have an ETA on a resolution?
Gaurav: There is standard TAT of 15 days.
Chris Toliver: okay. that time is up. so what should i do now?
Gaurav: It may take more or less time. It depends on the criticality of the issue.
Chris Toliver: how long should i wait until i contact you again? a week? a month?
Gaurav: I am unable to predict any time.
Gaurav: Please open Quicken >> Go to Account Action above Balance column >> Select Update now.
Chris Toliver: okay, it just finished updating
Gaurav: Are you able to update your account?
Chris Toliver: all of the accounts updated fine except two of my three chase bank accounts. basically i am getting the same error as in Incident: 111112-000328.
Gaurav: I will request you to wait till the issue is resolved.
Chris Toliver: how long will i have to wait?
Chris Toliver: a week? a month? a year?
Gaurav: You will get the resolution very shortly.
Gaurav: There is no turn around time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quicken seems to be downgrading (vice upgrading) w/ each new release.
Quicken needs to update there software. It seems to get buggier w/ each upgrade. This is not helpful when you are required to upgrade every three years.
