Not as bad as I've read here -- buy 2004 and not 2005,
This review is from: Quicken 2004 Premier (CD-ROM)
I was hesitant to buy the product because of all the negative comments. I upgraded from Quicken 98 and it's been a pleasant experience. It was time for me to upgrade. I didn't like having to pay $50 for only minor new features. I bought a 2004 copy of the Premier Home and Business for only $18. Strangely, people are charging $45 for a 2004 Premier. For $27 less you get Home and Business. The upgrade is well worth it if you are still using a very old copy of Quicken.
The major problem with the software is the "exclude internal tranfer" bug. It is difficult/impossible to create useful reports when you can't exclude internal transfer. For instance, if I transfer money from my checking account to savings account then it shows up as a transaction on my cash flow report. Quicken knows about the problem but force you to buy the latest version of software to get the fix (and I'm afraid that they've created other bugs).
