1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely bug-ridden, November 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Quicken Home & Business 2012 [Download] [OLD VERSION] (Software Download)
Quicken user for 20 years. Don't buy this update -- almost everything I tried to do, I found a bug in the software (downloading & accepting transactions, entering investment transactions)...Felt like it must still be the alpha version. After much frustration, I am giving up and going back to Quicken 2010. And, by the way, back up your files in a separate place before you try 2012, otherwise you wont be able to revert back if you don't like it.

More generally, I am pretty fed up with Intuit's updates, which seem to repeatedly introduce needless UI changes and new bugs.

I'd like to not upgrade but they are forcing me to in order to allow me to download stock quotes. I have 2009. What choice do I have?! They are making me buy this when I don't want to! Any options?

Buy a copy of 2011. Most bugs are fixed.
