Product Key Card features

  • Includes 25-character Product Key only, no disc.

  • Customers buying a new PC (best experience if customer simply uses the Product Key to activate a PC already preloaded with Office 2010 suites)

For customers who require Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 with a license for two machines (primary and portable PC), Office may be purchased in a traditional disc version.

2010 offers some great improvements over Office 2007: Customizable ribbons and the File tab instead of the silly MS Button (which confused everyone), combined with improved graphics and font options are fantastic!! Office 2010 combines the best of older versions (2003, etc.) with the best of 2007. It would be a real winner except . . . .

Microsoft's decision to throw loyal customers under the bus in favor of "simplified pricing" means upgrade costs are prohibitive! Don't be duped into buying the "activation key" card, thinking of it as an upgrade path. The "Activation Key" version can ONLY be installed on one computer - Ever!! It cannot be transferred if you upgrade or change primary work systems - Doesn't even sound like it be reinstalled if you have to reinstall the OS for some reason. Given increasing competition from online apps and a tight economy -- Microsoft needs to seriously reconsiders its pricing structure!!!

Others are buying Office 2007 - thinking they can simply download and install Office 2010 as an upgrade - but I believe the same restrictions as the "Activation Key" will be in effect.

This is like an OEM version - only one installation and one activation. Forget about installing it on more than one computer like the disc/retail version. Also, forget about moving it to another computer and getting it activated again (legally anyway).

I'd stay away from this unless you are absolutely sure that you will only be installing it and activating it on one computer AND that you will never want to move it to another computer in the future. Otherwise, pay a little more and get the non-PKC version that lets you install it on a desktop and notebook computer and move the license to another computer if you ever need or want to.

For a little more money, the non-PKC version is a much better value for many.

Sure, you can pay a bit more and get a box set from a store that might give you 3 licenses, but this was a great, easy way to load Office on my new laptop. Just so you know, you don't have to download the software, you just need the software key. Purchase this item, open up the Office 2010 Test Drive that is preinstalled on your computer, enter the code from here, you're good to go. No installation, no download, no headache. Great way to get the software you need. Kudos to MS and Amazon for making this easy and painless!

This product is exactly what most people need in a basic software suite---Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook (plus OneNote), with a number of nice improvements over 2007: the ribbon bar is included in Outlook now (which can thread conversations across folders now); they replaced the big round button with a File tab, image editing is much improved (not Photoshop, but WAY better than before) and PowerPoint transitions are much easier to control now as well. Not huge stuff, perhaps, but overall worth the extra money compared to the 2007 version, I think.

Something to consider is that with the Office 2010 series, Microsoft no longer offers an upgrade path. That's right: if you are thinking about buying a particular combination now and then upgrading it later, you won't be able to do that. You'll be faced with buying the missing product(s) separately or buying the entire suite. Microsoft has abandoned their previous policy of enabling you to upgrade, in favor of simpler pricing where you just have to buy everything at list price. I found this out myself the hard way after buying Home and Student, and then deciding to upgrade it to Home and Office: no deal.

So, if you think you might ever need Access or Publisher, strongly consider the Professional version instead of this one, to get those products now--unless you're certain that you'll be happy buying them as individual products later (or perhaps even just buying Professional outright later, and essentially sacrificing your investment in Home and Business).

For $40 more, you can get 2 licenses to install on 2 different PC's by buying the disc version. However, this is a great productivity package, see my review of it here: Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Business (Disc Version).

This just isn't a good deal if you have a 2nd machine you could use the suite on.

I am writing this after multiple conversations with Microsoft Tech Support.
Bottom line: Although Business Client Manager was included in Office 2007 Small Business, you have to purchase the Standard or Professional Version with multiple licenses before it is part of Outlook 2010.
For small business owners who owned Office 2007 Small Business, this is a major take away. Home and Business is in the same price range as 2007 Small Business was. 'Business' is in the name of both, so I assumed that it would have the same components. Now that it's installed, it would be major upheaval to try and go back to the previous version. We're talking hundreds of dollars more to purchase their minimum.
Nothing in Amazon's description states that BCM is there, nor does it warn you that it has been removed.
I told the Microsoft rep that, although I am not an attorney, the way this has been done might be opening themselves up to a class action lawsuit.
Buyer beware.
