2.0 out of 5 stars Only useful for basic checking account functions December 4, 2009
By Mike
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
Before you read my review, understand this: I have been a quicken user since Quicken 4 for DOS. I have probably owned 10 versions of Quicken in my lifetime.

My last version was quicken 2005 Basic, which was okay, but not as good as the one I had before that. (I was only upgrading bc Intuit crippled it so that I can't import my bank data anymore.) Over the years, the features available in the "beginning tier" have slowly disappeared. Starter 2010 comes with so few features, it hardly qualifies as money management.

I started out pleasantly surprised, because it successfully imported my 2005 data, even though the box said it could only import from 2008 and 2009. But it was all downhill after that.

The only types of accounts it supports are checking, savings, and credit cards. You can't find out what your balance is in your 401k. Can't track how much of your last mortgage payment went to principal vs interest. Can't track your return on stocks. Needless to say, this data won't be available when you fire up TurboTax.

For anyone with online banking, Quicken Starter will offer almost no value. In that case, there is really only one useful feature: expense categorization (i.e., what did I spend my money on last year?). My bank gives me a doc at the end of year with my expenses categorized, so I don't need it, but some people might. I don't know if buying (and rebating if avail to you), installing, entering all the info on a regular basis, etc is worth the hassle.

If you don't have online banking, then you can also use it to balance your checkbook, and remind you to pay bills. That's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Previous Microsoft Money User - I love Quicken! January 4, 2010
Access Method:Thin Software Download| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
This software was just what I was looking for to replace Microsoft Money. I have used Money Deluxe for 5+ years and was disappointed that it was going to be discontinued. I decided to try the starter version of Quicken and it was just what I needed! It keeps track of all my accounts, checking, savings, and credit. All the transactions are downloaded whenever I open the software. Bill reminders were a breeze to set up, and can be programmed with the link for the payee site, or your bank.

Simple and easy to use! I recommend this for anyone wanting to get a start on tracking their finances.

1.0 out of 5 stars You cannot downgrade November 15, 2009
Access Method:Thin Software Download| Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Be careful with this. If you are running an earlier version of Quicken Deluxe you cannot downgrade to the 2010 Quicken Starter Edition. Your backup is not able to be imported. I had to purchase the Unlock from Intuit to be able to use my old data.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bait and Switch January 10, 2010
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
I purchased Quicken 2010 Starter Edition last week in an effort to start the new year off right with sound money management skills. My parents used Quicken growing up and always spoke very highly of the products and how they helped them stay on track financially. I had also used the FREE Quicken Online on a limited basis and found it helpful. However, I felt a bit uncomfortable having all my financial information on the internet and decided to purchase the real program for my computer. When I purchased it in the store, I checked the back of the box to see which version to buy, and the additional upgrades such as "tracking investments" and "rental income" do not apply to me so I settled on the Starter Edition.

However, I was very dismayed to find that when I installed the program on my computer and added all my accounts...that there was no option to include loans. I searched all through the help options, and online to find out how to add loans and finally had to log on to the Quicken site and chat with a service representative to fined out that the Starter Edition doesn't include loan tracking.

I am very dissatisfied because nowhere on the box or on the website does it make it clear that in order to have loan tracking functionality, you must have the Deluxe or higher edition. Loans such as student loans or mortgages seem to be VERY basic financial items that most people have and want to keep track of. It seems a little strange that this wouldn't include this in program. And if they aren't going to include this in the program, it seems that you would want to make this clear on the packaging so people could truly buy the version that works for them. This seems like a bait-and-switch.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a dissapointment! December 31, 2009
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PC Disc
With MS Money gone I had to try a new product for my new PC, so I thought I would give Quicken Starter a try. In general, its fairly simple, but it does not allow you to set up any loan categories (other than Credit Cards). I simply wanted to add my mortgage...NOPE, NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! I'm not sure whats more basic then a mortgage tracker, but Quicken doesn't think its important. You have to upgrade to get the loan features. I wont upgrade to other versions and guess Ill just have to use a spreadsheet to monitor the mortgage. While the price is reasonable, you can get free software to do basic expense tracking...this product turned out to be one step about the free ones.
