If you currently have Quicken and are being forced to upgrade do not buy this edition. It is not compatible with any other version. If you have never used Quicken before this one is ok, but DO NOT BUY It if you have other versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quicken Starter Edition 2013 October 25, 2012
By Donna

I have used Microsoft Money for many years and needed to finally move to something else since it has been discontinued. I was able to import from Money into Quicken easily and near 100% accurate. The only issue I have found is the due date on some bills are off a couple of days. All of my accounts with transactions, categories and recurring bills were imported. I am even finding it easier to use. Definitely recommending.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quicken's Manufacturer has gotten greedy February 16, 2013
Platform for Display:PC Download
I have been a power user of Quicken for at least 15 years. In recent years, Intuit, the manufacturer and seller of Quicken, has gotten greedy. They have such a huge share of the market that they have no significant competition--in essence they have a monopoly. And, as monopolies always do, they have become arrogant, finding more and more ways to manipulate users to buying the more-expensive versions of Quicken, and jacking up the prices of all versions of Quicken other than the Starter Edition.

And, to add insult to injury, they've rigged the Starter Edition so that it will not accept files created by higher-priced versions of Quicken such as the Deluxe Edition. What this means is that if a customer has ever moved up to the Deluxe Edition, even just to try it out to see if it serves their needs better than the Starter Edition, they can never move back down the price scale to the Starter Edition.

Another way they're taking advantage of their monopoly position is to manufacture more and more high-priced versions of Quicken, then market them as if they can actually do something that the lower-priced editions cannot. Examples are the promotion of Quicken Home and Business which sells for $109.99 and Quicken Rental Property Manager, which sells for $159.99. I've used Quicken--the Starter and Deluxe editions--for years to track my home, business, and rental properties. It's easy to do using separate Tags for Personal, Business, and Rental accounts, right in the same Quicken File, or, if more separation is desired, in separate Quicken Files within the same edition of Quicken on your computer. You can even track multiple businesses or rental properties by setting up a separate Tag for each business or property.

The Amazon software download is the same price as ordering the CD, but you cannot return the Amazon software download and you can return the CD within 30 days. I am never going to buy a software download again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't work at all December 30, 2012
By katrina

I bank with USAA and formerly used Quicken 2010. It worked fine but this piece of crap won't even find my account at USAA. Doesn't sync, doesn't read old forms of your data. Doesn't direct connect. Doesn't download. Going to see if Amazon will give me my money back.

Look up the Q2010 and/or Q2008 products, where I posted detailed logs/diaries of the endless bugs, errors and frustrations I endured as a Quicken user.

Here's a permalink to just one of my earlier, quite detailed Amazon reviews of the Quicken product: tinyurl.com/AmazonQuickenReview

I owned Q2008, Q2005 & Q2002 and I used them daily. During that decade, I observed no significant product improvements, just the aforementioned continual increase in software bugs, eternal peddling of affiliated products, etc.

In August, 2010, I finally migrated to the Moneydance product and--after the migration and learning curve issues--I find it swims slick as an eel. I wish I'd done it years sooner.

Since at least 2002, Intuit has been using Quicken as a pure 'cash cow' - a product to milk revenue out of, but making no investment in it - while it continues to toy around with other new product developments toward future revenue streams ... ... Quicken Loans, Quicken Credit Cards, etc.

The history of the Quicken product doesn't suggest a bright future for Quicken users. Don't get suckered into starting up with Quicken. Go with Moneydance.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a waste of Money! December 28, 2012
By Steve
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I bought this because it said it would download all my information from my bank and credit cards, but it does not. It only supports a small percentage of banks. I found that my bank supplies Quicken QIF files, but Quicken doesn't support them any longer. That only leaves me with manual entry which defeats the reason I bought this. It would have been nice if they were forth coming with this information before I gave them my money. Talk about bait and switch...

I gave it 2 stars because I suppose that if I entered the information manually it "might" work well.

Never again!

I should add one more thing...

While trying this out, I transferred funds from one account to another and that worked as expected. I then deleted the transfer (I was experimenting) which removed the entry from the account I was transferring from, but it didn't delete the transaction that I transferred the money to. Needless to say, if I hadn't looked, this error would have remained.

You might argue that, in the real world, a person would never delete an entry from the books, but would instead make an adjustment entry to correct the problem, but this isn't high finance and most people that are new to this would assume that deleting an entry would be permissible. A properly written program would have prevented me from deleting the entry (in this situation), or informed me of the entries that this deletion would have affected.

I realize that I'm being rude, but a person would think that after all these years, Quicken would have crossed its "t"'s and dotted its "i"'s if you get my meaning.

I hate giving a negative review, but I expected better.
