2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Quicker about Quicken, July 3, 2012
This review is from: Quicken Home & Business 2012 [OLD VERSION] (Software)
This accounting software is convoluted and obtuse. It mixes business ledgers with personal ledgers, defaults to cash-basis, does not provide a step-by-step setup process, and forces one to get all the help files from their online site (a tough thing to do since we are on metered broadband).

My wife and I both hold bachelor degrees and we both took accounting courses in school. Yet we found keeping the books for our new small business easier to do by hand than trying to get this clunky software working properly.

Frankly, we have given up the effort and have acquired Peachtree. Setup with Peachtree has been a breeze so far. And setting things like accrual-basis and calendar year fiscal periods was as simple as we had hoped with Peachtree but virtually impossible to figure out how to do with Quicken.

I deeply regret having spent the money to buy Quicken. Save your cash and do your accounting manually or buy something more intuitive, like Peachtree.
