The full review:
More to the point though, Office has become a different animal than it was. In the long run, Office 365 is a better deal than buying a downloadable, installable product--because you *get* a downloadable, installable product with this deal.
So what exactly are you getting here?
This package is the ability to use the latest version of Office in the browser--meaning, if you're on a machine that doesn't have Office installed, you can log into your Microsoft account (required) and use browser-based versions of all the Office apps. This also means that the online storage place called "OneDrive" (formerly known as "SkyDrive") can be used to store up to one TeraByte (1,000GB) of stuff, anything you like, private or public or just shared out as you wish.
It's ALSO the ability to download and install Office 2013 OR Office 2016, on up to 5 machines, for up to 4 people! That's the cool part. In the past, you might have to buy more than one copy of Office, or be the sole user, or only put it on a desktop and a laptop. Now I can put this on my desktop, laptop, and Surface Pro, then install it on my wife's PC and my daughter can also have a copy installed to use. I've been running Office 2016 for the most part and have been pretty happy with the way it works. 2016 is not hugely different from 2013 or 2010, just in little ways.
This package lets you use Office for a year. You can buy two or three and stack them to prolong your subscription (if you're afraid the price of Office will go up) or you can extend your subscription to more people (in case you have a bunch of kids and want to add mom and dad and grandma into the number of users). I added a year using this code. It was only easy to do because I looked online first for HOW to do it.
Which brings us to the only real drawback to Office 365: anything to do with the browser. The browser-based apps try to be as much like the desktop as possible, but they're still not quite the same. OneNote is probably the closest match I've seen, while Outlook is the ugliest and least useful. The fact that the browser-based versions run in Azure ("the Cloud", a.k.a., "on the Internet") means that they typically run a bit slower, depending on your Internet connection. OneDrive is more annoying to manage using the browser, so I find myself using a computer to do most of the work like uploading files/folders, creating new folders, etc. I use the browser-based OneDrive interface to download individual stuff or share stuff out to people. The entire browser interface is trying to do the "Kanban" look that you also see in Windows 8's "Metro-now-called-Modern" apps and parts of Windows 10's look and feel.
My rule of thumb is that the browser-based Office is for small tasks on the go, but for anything substantial I go with the PC.
You also have to use the Office website to mange things like who you share Office with, or how you download. They make it annoyingly over-complicated to download the 64-bit version of Office if you don't want to use the 32-bit. You have to choose "Install-->Language and Install Options-->Additional Install Options--> then pick the specific 64-bit version you want. There's no good reason to bury the better-performing version that far down except that they hope it prevents tech support complications.
The Home Subscription is: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, and a 1TB bump-up to OneDrive, up to 4 people across 5 machines.
The Personal Subscription is the same, but only for one individual user, on up to 5 machines.
The Business version has a lot of other options *and* things to consider when choosing.
Overall, I find this a much better deal than shelling out a few hundred dollars up front and knowing the next version will require me to buy it again, and I don't get the benefit of the added OneDrive storage space. With this price, it's cheaper and I will always have the option of downloading the latest version of Office or sticking with the one I have. The browser-based versions I consider an afterthought, or "bonus feature" - I wouldn't rely solely on those for everyday work. And I would like to see managing the subscriptions and installs get a bit easier.
Comes with all the components of Microsoft Office and provides updates on an as-needed basis (usually about every 30 days).
Highly recommended if you need Outlook, Word, Excel, Access, Publisher, etc.
365 comes with ALL the office products
365 gives you the very latest version of the office products at all times
365 gives you FIVE separate licenses for 5 computers or devices
365 gives each of your FIVE licensees 1 TB or OneDrive Storage
OneDrive Storage is fully integrated into Windows 8 & Windows 10. It also works on iOS...
These features are neat in and of themselves. I'd also argue it makes 365 a bit of a bargain. Some might argue that owning Office would be cheaper over the long term but I'd have to disagree. 5 licenses covering Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook etc. run about $1000 or so. And eventually you will want to upgrade - some people say you don't have to but as someone who has used Word and Excel since version 1.0...I'd say most full-point version upgrades ARE worth it if you can afford it. And with 365...you've got it.
You can get a personal edition with 1 license for less.
Home editions can be found on sale for around $70 a year sometimes. You can buy 4 of them and take care of ALL MS Office needs and your cloud storage for $280 for 4 years like I did.
I've had a long and sometimes troubled relationship with MS products dating back to the 80s. I think I've tasted the good, the bad, and the super ugly they've produced over the years and am hardly a cheerleader for them. But Office 365 is a decent value proposition, and there is still no real competition for MS Office IMO - so this is pretty much a no brainer.
