Platform for Display: PC Disc Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
EDIT (12/9/2012): Intuit's R4 update of QB Pro 2013 has some improvements over the original 2013 release (see below). At least one is quite important since it allows one to readily tell which company file is open. Even so, I left this as four stars, but call it four and a half! There are other improvements listed but I haven't looked at them yet.

I wish I could give two star ratings: One for new users and one for up-daters. The four-star rating I gave is for new users.

New users should go ahead and read all the reviews for earlier versions. QuickBooks is popular for a reason. It does the job and does it well. It is not perfect and has room for improvement but there are not a lot of other choices in this price range.

For up-daters, I give it three stars. There is no compelling reason to go from the 2012 version to the 2013 version. Of course if you are on an earlier version that is reaching the end of its support life then you really should update and there is no compelling reason *not* to go to this version. Well, I suppose you can still get the 2012 version (as of this writing) and get it cheaper but that would just mean your next forced update would come a year earlier, pretty much wiping out whatever you might save.

Comments on some of the complaints I read in reviews here:

1. Wasted screen space. The worst offender is that big, fat, icon bar on the left, taking up about 20% of the available space. At first this was enough to make me want to chuck the whole thing, but you can use the View menu to move the icon bar back to the top where it belongs, or even remove it completely since there is nothing on the icon bar that can't be reached from the menu bar.

2. Larger fonts.

Platform for Display: PC Disc Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
02/01/13 UPDATE:

My original review is below (a 3 out of 5 stars), but after the experiences of the last couple of weeks I am modifying the review and hope this isn't happening to you: despite what may be claimed, the 2013 version can't do electronic filing of 1099's as there is a problem with the sync manager.

Intuit's customer support board (which is online) is filled with questions from users wondering what is going on, including me. Every time you try to initiate or use the sync manager, QB crashes - and despite submitting a ticket with your email address in to Intuit, they refuse to reply.

I spent an hour and a half on the phone with their outsourced overseas support line to no avail, and was passed to four different "help" desks, with the final resolution from the manager of the group to "call back tomorrow" to start the process over again. Amazing.

As a result, I had to pay extra to outsource the 1099 process this year.

I've been a QB user for over 15 years, and I will say I wish I had never upgraded to 2013. The changed functionality, repeated crashes, inability to process 1099's electronically, topped with the lack of support from either their online resources or call-in "help" line is actually mind-boggling from a customer satisfaction standpoint. If you don't need to upgrade, I would wait until the last possible minute you can before you take the plunge and put your reporting at risk as I did with mine.

The manufacturer commented on the review below
Platform for Display: PC Disc
A few days ago I "upgraded" to 2013 and promptly went back to 2012. The new screen layout is a disaster. There are two main problems:

1.) You can no longer change color schemes for your different companies to make it easier to tell which company you are working in. Actually, they have removed any and all ability for you to change the screen appearance in any way. Instead of adding functionality here, they just removed it all! They have decided that they know what fits you best and you can like it or lump it!

2.) They have enlarged the screen fonts until there is at least 30% LESS information visible on the screen. Sure, large fonts can be seen from a distance, but you also can't see very many characters in the same space. So, what happens, is that to navigate your information you have to do MUCH more scrolling than you used to do. Scrolling takes time and is frustrating. Also, horizontally you can't see as many characters in a column. So if you have two names that are similar, the last characters are truncated leaving you to guess which line you need to select.

I personally don't like the drab black, white, and grey color scheme. It is lifeless and ugly in my opinion. I think that Quickbooks has made a mistake here. They should have added the new interface, and made it the default if they wished, but not removed the other schemes for those of us who really use the program day in and day out and don't want to work harder to get the same results.

I plan to stay with 2012 and watch to see if they will add the screen functionality options back, and if not then I will probably shop for another accounting package in the future.

So sad, I have been a die-hard Intuit fan since Windows 95.

Hi Pete,
I'm happy to say we have a new R4 that have introduced an alternative top icon bar with colored icons and a light colored background. You can choose this option by going to Edit > Preferences > Desktop View > My Preferences > Switch to colored icons/light background once you have performed the update.

The R4 update can be accessed at http://support.quickbooks.intuit.com, click on "product updates".

If you have any questions please feel free to email me at customer_loyalty@intuit.com Attn: Corie

QuickBooks Customer Care

Hi Pete,
Thanks for the feedback on our new version of QuickBooks. We have refreshed its look and feel but we haven't changed the powerful things it does for customers. We hope the updates ultimately make using QuickBooks easier and early indications from many customers have been very positive. We hope you'll give it a chance and we appreciate your business.

November 2012 Update:
If you have downloaded our latest maintenance release you will notice several improvements to QuickBooks including updates to the icons on the left and top menus which make them easier to read and easier to identify important tasks. We also improved text labels to make them easier to read and updated the background from white to gray on Bills, Checks, and Centers to reduce glare some customers called out as distracting. We'll keep listening and working to make the product the best it can be for customers.

To make sure you have downloaded the latest updates, please click the F2 button and make sure you are on Release R3P. If you aren't you can update QuickBooks by going to Help/Update QuickBooks/Update Now and check the Maintenance Release Box. Click Get Updates to download the latest.

Corie, QuickBooks Customer Care
