1.0 out of 5 stars Totally agree w/ first poster October 13, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
As noted in the first post, if you have any other version of Quicken, you will end up shilling out another $30 or more to open your file via an upgrade. I am a mobilized Army soldier away from home. When my laptop gave out and I replaced it, I restored my data files to the new laptop. As I don't have access to my original software (at my house) I thought I would just go ahead and buy the starter version (which has everything I need) to use with my .QDF file. Wrong! The starter version won't open or read my "deluxe" version file. Hence, another $30 spent on the "upgrade". Now I know why Quicken was "free" when MS Money discontinued their software... I am very disappointed in this company and feel totally taken advantage of.

1.0 out of 5 stars This product sucks! November 17, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
One would think that after 20-ish years of developing the premier accounting software they would work out the most basic, annoying and dysfunctional kinks...but not with this proiduct. Despite having read other reviews warning me that the product does not sync properly with "supported" banks, I bought the product. Within 20 minutes of download, it is absolutely worthless as it will not sync with multiple accounts from the same bank (i.e. checking AND savings). So, finding out how poor this product is was lesson #1. Lesson #2 was learning that Amazon will not allow you to return downloadable software purchases, so I am stuck with a purchase that is worthless. Shame on you Quicken and Amazon for selling this product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware October 10, 2011
By FredM
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Before you purchase Quicken 2012 Starter Edition make sure your previous version isn't something more such as one of the Quicken Deluxe versions. If you are using one of the Quicken Deluxe versions you will not be able to convert and use your existing data file without investing another $30 to upgrade the software you just purchased to Quicken 2012 Deluxe Edition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Old Version October 14, 2011
By GJeff
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
Quicken starter if fine as a basic, entry-level personal finance manager/tracker. Be aware that when I purchased the CD version it was apparently an old version. It wouldn't allow accounts to be added and regularly crashed ("Not Responding"). I had to constantly restart the application until I finally uninstalled and requested a refund from Intuit. That's when they explained I had "release 1" and needed "release 2." That was a large patch file download. Seems ok so far, but I'd caution against the cd version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware... October 29, 2011
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
While I have always been a fan of Quicken, please be advised that they explicitly disallow "upgrades" from earlier versions of Quicken Deluxe to new versions of Quicken Basic. (While this practice may be common in the software industry, it is completely unnecessary.) This is not obvious until install time. While I am certain there are workarounds for this, I don't wish to take the time to discover them.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY IF YOU OWN A PRIOR VERSION January 21, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
If you purchase this software and have a prior version installed on your computer you will not be allowed to run both. This is a limited feature software package, which I understood when I bought it for my daughter. Why Intuit INSISTS that my prior FULL version 2010 software MUST be un-installed and disabled is non-sensical. I paid for both licenses! So by purchasing a new product for my daughter, I must disable the full featured package that I have years of data in? I don't think so. I'm so over Quicken, all their versions, incapatability, crappy customer support and complete disrespect for their customers. Bottom line, I paid for 2 different software packages, but by purchasing the second, I wipe out the first. Save yourself the aggrevation. Lessson learned.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works well March 3, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I had the 2011 starter edition and had no problems getting this to open my file. There are 2 things that might be worth the upgrade. The biggest change is the ability to sync your accounts at once. With 2011 it would sync them one at a time so it would take a few minutes to sync all my accounts. With 2012 it'll do all of them at once so I can usually get them all synced in about a minute.

The other notable change is the addition of a budget tool. It's a very simple tool that I find kinda annoying as it's setup on yearly spending, then divided by 12 to get the monthly amount. I think Mint's budget is better, but I just end up using Excel as I can tweak it how I want.

I like quicken better than mint as it is more flexible with accounts and categories. I really like that I can manually add in what you spent and you can know once it clears the bank (it helps me knowing which checks have been cashed). You can do this with Mint but you have to delete what you put in once it goes through).

There are also several other features such as when expenses are due and projecting your bank account balances based off of your expenses and income that are handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised and pleased with this new edition January 14, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I'm pretty conservative when it comes to computers and their software. When I find something that works, I want to keep it. Recently, the computer I bought in 1999 became undependable, so I bought a new one. I dreaded loading the 2012 version of Quicken, because when I loaded the 2000 version back in 1999, it would not recognize the files from the older version.

Much to my surprise and pleasure, the 2012 Quicken Starter edition provided easy menu choices to restore files from the C drive, a CD, a DVD or online backups. My backup included three extra files that were automatically combined into the single 2012 format and the resulting data is displayed exactly the same as the older version! Any version of Quicken offers automatic features that make it superior to Excel for financial management, but I did not use very many of the Quicken 2000 facilities because they did not display the information I wanted the way I wanted it. I hope for better results from Quicken 2012. I like the ability to set flags for recurring expenses and income. The reconcilement feature appears to be the same slow, clumsy process as in Quicken 2000, though. I'll have to try the tutorial to look for improvements.

My brother-in-law uses the advanced version of Quicken to track his investments, but I'm pretty happy with this Starter edition.

Like it says, it is a starter product. If you already use Quicken, it will not import your data. I would only recommend if you never used Quicken before.
