I am a long time Quicken user, dating back to 1993. Lately I have used Quicken 2002 Basic ever since August 2001. Sitting on the fence post for several years, looking and listening to the horror stories that others have had with Quicken upgrades made me reluctant to upgrade. So what were my options with a program that is quickly becoming extinct and technical support that is now 3 years since evaporated?

First, I took Microsoft Money up on their trial offer - downloading Microsoft Money Deluxe and took a test drive of the program. 35 Megs of download file later, I installed the program. Installation was a snap. The program found my Quicken 2002 data file and converted it to Money - NO data errors as a result of the conversion (I had only 8 months of data in that file). After playing with it for 20 minutes, entering in several transactions, I didn't like the feel of how the program took my data - it felt like an older program that needed a major amount of work to get it up to date. It reminded me of my Quicken 2002 program with functionality. Needless to say - I dumped it - right then and there.

That left me with Quicken or a full blown accounting package (like Peachtree) as my remaining upgrade options. Quicken became my next choice - taking Quicken up on their 60 day guarantee - what did I have to lose?

Here are my experiences with Quicken 2008 Deluxe thus far:

Installation: For me, this was an upgrade from Quicken 2002 - the only version on my present computer. The installation program found Quicken 2002 and backed up the Quicken 2002 data files in a separate BACKUP file directory in Quicken. The program then uninstalled 2002 and installed 2008 - 10 minutes total time.

I have been a Quicken user since the DOS days. In April I upgraded from 2005 to 2007 without too much fanfare. Everything converted fine and I was really pleased with the new attachment feature where you could scan or attach existing files to individual transactions. I began scanning all of my invoices and bank statements and shredding the originals. Then I bought a new computer and decided to order Quicken 2008 along with the new software to ensure it would function well under Windows Vista operating system. That's when all hell broke loose. Like other comments in this forum have pointed out there are many glitches in 2008 that they can't seem to resolve. Technical support is absolutely AWFUL. I have spent hours upon hours speaking with their support staff (I assume from the accents they are in India) and cannot get a resolution to my printing issues. When I try to print attachments they now print so large that two inches or more are lost on the right hand side and the bottom of the document. Also if the document is multi-pages there is no way to access anything except the first page. So all of my work scanning documents into transactions has caused me to basically lose the originals. The technicial attempted to charge me $24.95 saying it was not a conversion issue. That is until I pointed out I had no problem printing the same attachment in 2007... so how could it NOT be a conversion issue. Two technicians tried to tell me it was a printer issue and I should contact HP. I informed them I had already done that and since ALL other programs printed fine HP technical support had taken the stance that it is a Quicken issue. I further pointed out I have both an HP and a Canon printer and it doesn't print properly on either one.Read more ›

If you already own an earlier version of Quicken within the last couple of years, save your money and don't bother with this. Quicken has added a lot of stupid "enhancements" that are cosmetic, and often make it worse - for example, the new way they highlight the transaction you are looking at, which partially blocks the neighboring transaction, or the "renaming" function, which is way too aggressive. This, for example, renamed a restaurant named Bay Ridge to ebay, and a parking facility called avistar into avis. This caused me much time on the phone with the merchant trying to resolve the charge until I figured it out.

Meanwhile, they have completely failed to repair some of the key problems that have existed for several versions, and have failed to add any meaningful or useful enhancements. I returned this version to Quicken. I would suggest that, unless you have a strong reason to switch, or are a new Quicken user, you save your money and work with the version you have.

The old days of Intuit being a customer focused organization which really understands the customers' needs and develops their software accordingly are long gone. Evidently, Intuit is internally focused and is not paying attention to their users any more.

I've used Quicken since the DOS days. While it always had some bugs, I've appreciated it's many features and ease of use. Quicken Deluxe 2008 is not a terrific upgrade, however. And before you buy it, you might want to consider a few things.

I went back to Quicken Deluxe 2007 and even had to roll back from R5. There were just too many bugs. Above all, not all the features worked with my PocketQuicken. Like the categories would not synchronize. Now, that may not be important at all to you. But other people were reporting all sorts of problems with that update. Unfortunately, some of them were not corrected with this new version.

Some of the features of Quicken Deluxe 2008 include:

Here is how My Savings Plan works:

* Compares actual spending to budgeted spending by category.
* Shows the difference between budgeted amounts and actual spending.
* Here is the exciting part: Quicken's My Spending Plan includes a roll over reserve which is equal to what is left between this month's budgeted amounts and actual spending plus unspent funds from previous months.

Other new features in Quicken Deluxe include:

* 529 education savings tracking.
* Collapsible left account navigation bar for increased work space.
* Simplified income and expense category selection - find transaction categories much faster in Quicken 2008.
* Tag transactions to give them more definition, similar to tagging web pages in social bookmarks.
* Quicken Billminder Gadget for Windows Vista users shows scheduled bills and transactions right on your desktop.

It does have seamless integration with Microsoft Vista and the interface is nice.
