4.0 out of 5 stars excellent with minor technical annoyances January 11, 2012
By jameed
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
This review is to provide a few of answers I initially had about the Mac downloadable version of Rosetta Stone - Spanish (Latin America) L1 - L5 and provide a couple of notes about the the technical aspect of my experience with it. If you are looking for for a review on the benefits of Rosetta Stone, others have written about them extensively

1. It is the same version as the boxed set. I ended up with version v4 TOTALe (downloaded Jan/12) including the limited-time free online features
2. Yes, It allowed me to install it on two Mac machines
3. You are provided one activation code that unlocks all 5 levels on both machines

The download and installation was as easy as any other program. Make sure you have broadband internet and a decently configured computer as the graphics, animation and progress sync may slow down your computer if you have an older configuration.

Every time I turn on the application, it goes through the audio set up. In my hands, the microphone set up always fails the first time (buttons to retry audio set up also become unclickable) and the activity slides do no appear as well. These 2 issues always resolve after I quit the application and restart it. It is a minor annoyance but it only takes me an extra minute to start the activities. Again, this might just be the computer I work on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good product with some bugs, really poor support May 30, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
The idea of learning the language through immersion is great. The implementation is mostly decent, too - on the side of creative content and multimedia use. What takes a star out are bugs in the program that make the learning experience much more tedious than it could be. For example, the last version takes 20-30 seconds of 'synchronization' every time I go to the program's home screen. And it needs to go there often because after every 2-3 exercises the program fails to automatically advance to the next exercise, and I have to go back to the home screen. Now, if it takes over 20 seconds on my top-notch iMac with 15Mbps optical connection to Internet, I wonder how much time it takes on more mainstream computers. Oh, and another star goes out for the poorest tech support I've ever encountered so far. Multiple emails, 5-6 dropped and re-opened cases with all different folks on Rosetta side, and finally a 45-minute conversation ending with a promise to return a call that didn't materialize yet. So, if you are good with computers and aren't afraid of minor bugs - go ahead, buy it and you'll find it really valuable. Otherwise, look around for a more mature product.

1.0 out of 5 stars HORRIBLE customer service March 22, 2013
By Jimmy
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
To say that Rosetta Stone customer service was inadequate would be an understatement. They are absolutely horrid. I'm not exaggerating. I spent two and a half hours on customer service line with Rosetta only to find out the download code did not work...and they could do nothing about it. I can't tell you how much the telephone jingle I was forced to listen to while on hold haunted me in my dreams last night. And the language barrier with the people in India...horrendous. It's like talking to a four year old.

I am still waiting on Amazon to resolve this issue while I'm out three hundred dollars.

I can't believe that Rosetta Stone has the reputation they do. I will absolutely never purchase a product from them again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love the product, but some things you should know.. September 3, 2013
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed my Rosetta Stone Spanish - Latin America software very much! As someone who had already taken a few years of Spanish classes in school, the first few units of the program seemed a little tedious, but I love the layout and methods that Rosetta Stone uses. This would definitely be ideal for someone learning the language for the first time, and it's also helpful if you already know a little Spanish.

However, because of some financial issues, I decided I wanted to return the product, and I found that the Rosetta Stone 6-month guarantee does not extend to Amazon purchases. Here's my experience:

I purchased my Rosetta Stone Latin America software from Amazon via Digital Download a little over 3 months ago, and I was under the impression that the 6-month return guarantee applied to my Amazon purchase. Today I found that I was unable to return it via Amazon's online return system, so I called Amazon customer service at 1-888-280-3321 and was transferred to the online games and software division. They told me that no, I could not return it through Amazon, but that maybe I'd have better luck if I contacted Rosetta Stone directly. So I called Rosetta Stone's customer care number (1-800-280-8172) and asked if I could return my product through Rosetta Stone, and they told me that the 6-month Rosetta Stone return policy did not extend to Amazon purchases.

I hope this helps someone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mountain Lion (10.8) Compatibility Issues December 20, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
If you download a copy of this software for use on a computer running Mountain Lion, you'll have to follow a relatively complex series of steps in order to make the application run properly. The troubleshooting steps may be found by searching the following in Google "Rosetta Stone (v.4.1.15) Error 8111 under Mountain Lion" and going to the Apple Discussion Community link. I personally found these steps to be a fairly significant barrier to entry, but others may be more savvy with computers. Once you go through these steps, you will still have to chat with Rosetta Stone to activate the product because, as other users have flagged, Rosetta Stone does not accept activation keys that are provided through third-party vendors like Amazon.

Rosetta Success saysJanuary 22, 2013
Hello Hrishikesh,

We're sorry to hear that activating your program was not an easy process! Products purchased from an authorized reseller contain authorized activation IDs. If for some reason the activation ID is invalid even though the product was purchased from a authorized reseller or directly from Rosetta Stone, we can work with you to create a new one. I was able to find your support case number and will be following up with you over e-mail as well.
