    Not worthy of a paid upgrade, but finally stable after several months

    I truly believe that what they do is grab one marginal new feature such as free credit score and package it with the latest set of bug fixes and call it a paid upgrade. It's truly shameful, especially to users like myself that continue to buy it year after year. Most of the time when I review products I think the 1-star reviews are outlier bad experiences, but with Quicken, this is my third year in a row of a terrible experience.Here's the way it went:Day one:Back up everything, twice, just to be sure.

    CAUTION on "free" Credit Report Score - Installation heads up

    Downloaded and upgraded from Q2012. Two major cautions.1) The user interface during the conversion of your old file is horrible. The progress bar zips through the first few steps and then gets 3/4 through the last step (although you do not know it is the last step) and appears to hang. It will not move for a long, long time! Do not abort the process. Give it at least 30 minutes of so... maybe more. It is a shame that the developers could not have put a counter or some indication that the conversion was still ongoing.2) CAUTION. While the credit report feature would be great, read the fine print about what will happen with your information. In my original review I said: "You are giving permission to "You agree that we may use your information to provide you with aggregated or customized information, educational materials and targeted or pre-qualified offers."

    Lots of bug fixes, minor enhancements

    Quicken reviews really need to be classified in 2 ways. 1) A review of the overall product as a stand alone financial management product and 2) as an upgrade to the prior version.1) As a stand alone financial management product its really the only game in town. Many bugs have been fixed from the prior version and essentially it does most of what people need. For this I would give it 4 stars. If you are not using financial management software I would recommend Quicken 2015 for this purpose.2) As an upgrade to 2014 many bugs have been fixed. But not much new functionality has been added and nothing new has been added that would make me pay for an upgrade to 2015. As an upgrade from 2014 I would give it 2 stars.Here are links to new enhancements and bug fixes so you can determine if these changes are enough for you to want to upgrade.http://quicken.intuit.com/support/help/quicken-2015-for-windows-improvements/INF26978.html... 3/5 Kevin Osborn (Florida) - See all my reviews, October 2, 2014

    First time buying an Intuit product is also my last

    After hours online with inept Quicken support, and multiple re-installs, I'm still not able to even register my purchase of Quicken 2015. Which means I can't even use the off-line part of the product.As a first time user of Quicken, if this is the level of support I can expect from Intuit, I will never even consider purchasing another product from them.As it stands, I'm doing my best to get my money back.UPDATE: Tried another round with Quicken support, who this time actually looked at the logs that I sent them. Problem is that is that the error in the log is one that they said they've never seen before. (For those interested: "The value specified contains invalid control characters".) They said it might be due to the file being downloaded from Amazon. So I'll wait until it becomes available on the Inuit website and try again.

    Underwhelmed with changes from last year's version

    Changes to the UI from past years versions are virtually nil. The UI looks dated with Windows 95 era style icons in the toolbar.The UI is slow in repainting itself while scrolling large datasets, this is particularly noticeable in the Investing tab if the number of stocks exceeds what will fit in a single window view, requiring you to scroll. If I edit a row then click off of it to edit a different row somewhere else in the window, the app will occasionally become non-responsive for up to 30 seconds before allowing me to edit the new row.I have a high-end Intel i7 desktop PC with 16GB RAM and a high-end NVIDIA video card, so these types of performance issues are unacceptable.Print to PDF functionality has never worked for me in the last version or this one (error code -20). Quicken installs a printer called "Quicken PDF Printer" which one would think is a general purpose PDF printer. I had to find a third party PDF printer in order to print to PDF... 2/5 B.

    Long Time Loyal Customer/User Confused

    I started using Quicken in the 1980s printing out my checks on a dot-matrix printer.Since then, I have been a loyal customer/user, upgrading almost every year.I have seen the product go from DOS-based to Windows-based with many amazing features.I have always used the transaction downloading capabilities which have evolved to the "One-Step Updates" to all my financial institutions thus avoiding manual entries.My gripe is that the price to upgrade annually has increased, but so have the bugs. And the new functionality each year is limited. Despite that, I have continued to upgrade annually as I really like the product and typically there are some new functions I find useful. Until this year...Specifically, when I logged onto my copy of Quicken 2013 (Home&Business), a window popped up from within the Quicken 2013 program prompting me, as a current user, to upgrade to 2014.

    Some problems still not fixed

    As my version of Quicken 2011 H&B has a) suddenly stopped connecting with my bank and downloading transactions again and b) will be sunset next year anyway due to Quicken policy, I decided to give 2014 a try, so far the problems are as follows:1. Still cannot print an invoice to printer or PDF if it has a logo, tried every suggestion on 2011 and every suggestion again on 2014 and still does not work. You would think after many years and multiple new releases they would have fixed this basic functionality for the business section. Also in addition while trying to print invoices with a logo the program froze solid multiple times and I had to do the three finger control, alt delete to bring up task manager and kill the program.I was hoping to switch to H&B rather than upgrade QuickBooks for my business but H&B just does not seem professional enough2.

    Like buying a Business Class seat and finding yourself in Coach

    Let me join the chorus of long-time customers who are absolutely furious with Intuit for downgrading the capabilities of TurboTax Deluxe so that it can no longer do what it has done for many years - including Schedules D and C. The product instead informs me that I require Home & Business (which I never needed before) and I must pay another $40.Look. If you want to change product features, Intuit, that is your right. But to give a lesser product the exact same name as a previous, more capable product is just Evil. This is just clueless about the concept of serving your customers.If an airline rebranded their economy/coach seats as "Business Class", do you think people would complain if they bought what they thought was a larger, business class seat and found themselves in coach - and not even economy plus?If you ordered a pick-up truck and discovered that there was no truck bed because the manufacturer now considered that as non-standard... 1/5 Karl (Bozeman, MT USA) - See all my reviews, December 17, 2014

    DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT - INTUIT IS TRYING TO RIP US OFF

    Don't buy this if you are a long time user of TT. I have used TT for 20 years at least and I can honestly say I will be switching to anything other than TT. Why? Well for years I have used the Deluxe version which has always included the Schedule D and Schedule C. This year the Deluxe version does NOT include the Schedule D and only includes the Schedule C-EZ. If you want the same functionality this year as in the past you need to by the Premier version which is $30.00 more.

    TT Deluxe 2014 - Disappointing Program Changes

    Have used Turbotax from its beginning. It has always been the market dominant and a very fine product, until 2014. I purchased TT Deluxe w. State Return at Staples 11/26 so I could begin my year end tax planning. The cost was listed at $89.95 less a $30 Staples instant rebate, so final price was fine. I read the different version features and figured the Deluxe version still was my most reasonable choice, since my situation hadn't changed from previous years. The program installed without any problem. So I began entering estimated information. Surrprise! When I tried to enter some estate trust income in the K1 form, a script type message appeared that stated Deluxe had been changed and I needed to pay $30 upgrade fee for Premier version!

    Good version for home use

    I down loaded this from Amazon. I had previously used the Deluxe edition but I don't need anything more than this starter edition. I never used the budgeting and planning software in the Deluxe version. The new software picked up the files from the 2013 Deluxe version with no issues. There seems to be the suggestion in some places the Starter Edition won't do that and other places that it will. Mine picked up the 2013 files seamlessly. I really don't see any significant changes from the 2013 version. I have 2013 on a desk top that has become unreliable so, rather than load an older version on my laptop, I waited for the 2015 version to come out and down loaded it. I had one minor aggravation with it. When setting it up it asked if I wanted to use the Intuit password as the password vault password. When I would try to upload data from my bank, I would get an in correct password message. I tried several times, deleted the vault, started all over, got a message one time to... 4/5 Douglas Terry "Doug Terry" (Angleton, Texas United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This has got to be the WORST version EVER

This review is from: Quicken Starter Edition 2015 (Software Download) I have used Quicken since 1994. This has got to be the WORST version EVER. It brought in all my transactions from my bank in 10 minutes. I have worked for 5 hours trying to fix the random weirdness that it created! It has deleted transactions, linked transfers from 1 acct to another in a circle between 4 different accounts. ITS A NIGHTMARE. Now, I have transfers in one account not even showing in the other account. How in the world am I supposed to use this program?? Save your $. Buy a different quicken software. Buy something other than Quicken. They just keep getting worse. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 14, 2014

    Just Horrible - they are trying to get rid of the 2014 reviews by just releasing new software

    This is incredibly sad. They are just releasing 2015 software without ANY attempt to fix 2014 software because they are trying to get away from the horrible reviews of 2014. Quicken 2014 is HORRIBLY broken and their fix is to charge us >$100 to buy 2015. Intuit, you do not have Microsoft's monopoly.If you think 2015 is going to be ANY better than 2014, please know that I have been using this software for 24 years and it is now in such a decline spiral that I can't imagine it recovering.I haven't felt the need to complain until the 2014 release (suffering in silence like many of you.) I knew it was a bad idea adopting it this early but I needed the tax projection utility.However, when you enter a transaction in a plain old check register and the running balance is wrong, it is time to complain. Then it becomes necessary to write poor reviews on Amazon when you cannot navigate through the company's web presence nightmare to report a bug. And then... 1/5 W.

    AMAZON SHOULD NOT BE SELLING THIS BUGGY SOFTWARE -- IT CRASHES WITHIN 2-3 MINUTES OF LOADING.

    I'm a long time Quicken user -- my file goes back to 1/1/1993. I've been using Quicken 2013 Home & Business since 2013. But, after not being able to download financial transactions from my brokerage firm for six months and unable to get any satisfactory help from either the financial institution or Quicken, I figured that as a last resort I would do this upgrade.BIG MISTAKE!!!!! Not only is the transaction download still broken, but this version of Quicken crashes within 2-3 minutes of me loading it -- every time. No reason given, it just crashes. This isn't production worthy software. It's junk!!!! Amazon should pull this product and Quicken should be ashamed!!!But for now, here is my review:What's new (compared to my 2013 version - which is two versions back)1) A new login mechanism that routes through their servers - not sure what the benefit really is.

    Updated to 3.5 stars with R2 release-"safe to buy" IMO

    Another buggy initial release. Crashes every time I try to update my investments. Just what I didn't need. Happens on two different files, so it is not unique to my particular investment house. Hold off until this is fixed. Back to 2014. Will they ever have a new release that actually works??UPDATE 9/30/14:Spent 3 hours on the "chat support" with Intuit who kept sending me to certain links to "fix" the unfixable. The person was clueless (although not as clueless as me who put up with this for 3 hours) and had me install, uninstall and remove certain hidden files from OS. Guess what?? It still crashes. The only problem is that it took me 2 more hours to be able to undo what their tech support had me do in order to reload the program.Get this, when I lost patience and said I have to go to work he said, well it must be something on my part because I have the latest release??

    Quicken 2014 compared to Quicken 2011

    I was a long-time Microsoft Money user, and a reluctant Quicken 2011 Premier user since late 2010 (once Microsoft announced it was no longer updating Money). The transition was somewhat laborious and annoying, but I have since grown used to Quicken. Yes, it has its quirks, but I have never lost any data and I have grown more and more dependent on it and more familiar with it over time.Based on scathing reviews of 2012 and 2013 versions, I never tried to upgrade to those versions and have no experience with them. The reviews of previous versions are similar to other reviews for 2014 in that most claim very few (positive) changes hence no real reason to upgrade. Alas, soon my online updates in Quicken 2011 will stop working in April 2014 due to Quicken's policy of only supporting the last 3 versions (2014, 2013, 2012). At least they are consistent - this has been their policy for 10+ years. I love automatic updates of my accounts, so I bit the bullet and purchased... 3/5 Jeff Waters (Dallas, TX USA) - See all my reviews, October 9, 2013

    Not Ready For Prime Time

    I have been using Quicken for more than a decade and have tolerated being forced to upgrade every few years simply because there is no better alternative to this B+ software.So I recently upgraded from Quicken 2011 (which was working tolerably) to Quicken 2014. The look and feel of the program is exactly the same as the three year old Quicken--no changes or improvements that I can see. However, the new program is clearly not ready to be released as it is filled with bugs.Most annoying is that when I try to download transactions from my bank, credit card or brokerage house, the program immediately crashes. Quicken customer service, although happy to talk to you, is hapless. I have spent about 5 hours on the phone installing, uninstalling, copying and validating files--essentially beta testing this program which I spent $75 for-- all to no avail. Promises to get a call back from 'level 2'to resolve have been lies.If you have a working version of... 1/5 LKF (NYC) - See all my reviews This review is from: Quicken Premier 2014 [OLD VERSION] (Software Download) I have been using Quicken for more than a decade and have tolerated being forced to upgrade every few years simply because there is no better alternative to this B+ software.So I recently upgraded from Quicken 2011 (which was working tolerably) to Quicken 2014.

    Intuit sets a new low in competence and professionalism.

    Forewarned by abysmal ratings on Amazon, but optimistic that by now (December 30, 2013) Quicken Premier (QP) 2014 would be functioning properly, I downloaded it to a computer which didn't have Quicken on it at all, in case there was trouble. I've been a Quicken User since 1993, and have upgraded every year. QP 2013 was the worst version before 2014 came out, and it took Intuit eight revisions for the 2013 version to get it functioning by the end of 2012 (it's presently had 12 revisions). QP 2014's debut seems to have set a new low in both competence and professionalism.Two days ago (a Saturday), figuring that surely after getting feedback and having some Intuit ghost, "Kathryn," putting canned messages on the hundreds of complaints about QP 2014 (and other Quicken 2014 software) that things were fixed, or would be forwarded to something called a "development team" (a development team?
