    A Good Deal

    If you're like most people, you have several computers running throughout your house: a desktop, a laptop, a kid's laptop etc. This 3 license package is a great way to upgrade all of your PCs in your home for one low price.Here's my generic Windows 7 review:I'll admit, I've been running Windows 7 for six months now: the preproduction version of it and have just upgraded to the gold code. So I have quite a bit of experience with the operating system. Let's get to the nitty gritty:Should you upgrade from Windows Vista? YES! I mean it - upgrade today.Windows 7 is quite simply faster, more stable, boots faster, goes to sleep faster, comes back from sleep faster, manages your files better and on top of that it's beautiful to look at and easy to use.

    Key upgrade info

    I had a difficult time trying to upgrade from Vista. I kept getting "unknown error" or "can't create directory for update files". Eventually I disabled everything running in the system tray - spysweeper, anti virus, and my background backup program. The install also asks you to un-install itunes. After this, I was able to update all three home computers. You would think it would be easy for Microsoft to detect these issues and give a decent error message - or include it in the installation instructions.An update after using Windows 7 for a couple of days:* Very good compatibility with programs, and printers. Everything came up and worked well. Even my Western Digital background backup program.* Taskbar bar icons are bigger - I'd guess that most Microsoft designers are growing old with me and starting to use reading glasses* Occasionally hangs when shutting down - I think that I have narrowed it to Spysweeper hanging out in the background and not closing... 3/5 J.

    Turned an old XP computer into a new one!

    With Microsoft ending its support of XP on April 8th, I knew I had to do something about one of our older Dell computers that's been running XP for the last -- wow maybe 8 years? A little voice told me I should just spend $400 on a new computer instead of $100 on a new OS but the old computer works fine and was pretty fast on XP, and the Windows Upgrade Advisor (free download, google it) told me that the unit would have no problems with Windows 7.So I copied all of my picture and document files off of the computer onto an external hard drive and booted this DVD. It only took about 10 minutes to install Windows 7 and yes, the hardest part is reading the micro type on the password key to unlock the copy of Windows. I took a picture with my iPhone and then zoomed in to read the numbers but even with that one number was VERY hard to read. After activation I spent the next hour or so configuring the computer, and I used Windows Easy Transfer (another free program from... 5/5 Goldengate "Goldengate" (San Francisco, where else?) - See all my reviews, March 9, 2014

    Installed On MacBook Pro

I'm an insurance and real estate broker in Houston, TX. I would rate my technical knowledge as medium.I bought the 64-bit builder pack to install on a new MacBook Pro. Followed the Apple Boot Camp instructions and was up and running in less than an hour. Couldn't have been easier. Love the MacBook Pro but one critical business web site only supports IE Explorer and several others have issues with Safari (plus Chrome, Firefox and others as well). The builder pack has all the features and is sold for a clean install on a new computer. It was exactly what I needed.Running both Windows7 and Snow Leopard for me is the only way to go. There's some keyboard differences but nothing significant. I may try Parallels 5.0 down the road but Boot Camp works fine for now. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 11, 2010

    Very worthwhile, but a word of caution on install.

    This is a worthwhile upgrade for me. I debated whether to do it or not and what version to get. I finally decided on the Home and Student version. I was pleased to see the price actually drop upon shipping. For me the main deal was OneNote 2010 which allows me to print directly into OneNote. In December I bought a new laptop and it has Win7 Pro 64bit. I was very disappointed to find that OneNote 2007 did not include a driver to print directly into it.

I'm using stand alone versions of Outlook and Publisher (both 2007) and Access (2003). I had decided to leave these as is.

    A whole lot of polishing make it an efficient, worhtwhile upgrade

    I've had an opportunity to use Office 2010 Beta edition for a couple of months now and now that I see the full, final, edition I can say that this is a very worthwhile upgrade. First things first, I am not a techie. I am someone who uses Word, Excel and PowerPoint on a very regular basis, who really liked some of the changes in Office 2007 but who thought some things needed tweaking, so when given the opportunity for the beta edition I jumped on it and have not been disappointed. Office 2010 is to Office 2007 what Windows 7 was to Vista; that is, there are not many breakthrough, drastically different features, but a whole lot of polishing and cleanup to make it easier and more efficient. Overall, the program seems to run faster, incorporates many of the most commonly used options and makes them more accessible (eliminating many dialog boxes and tabs) and allows for more customization.At first glance it looks very much like its predecessor, the ribbon is back and it is now... 5/5 Surgery100 "ADJ" (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010 Family Pack, 3PC (Disc Version) (DVD-ROM) I've had an opportunity to use Office 2010 Beta edition for a couple of months now and now that I see the full, final, edition I can say that this is a very worthwhile upgrade.

    Probably Not Worth the Upgrade!

    In my title, I noted that it is "probably" not worth the upgrade. The probably depends upon what you are upgrading from. If you are using Office 2007, stick with 2007. This has a slightly longer load time and not much in the way of usable new features. If you are upgrading from an even earlier version of Office, then this is probably the way to go.The good: The ribbon bar. I like it and it is still there, with a couple of minor improvements such as adding a file option and incorporating your most commonly used actions into one place (kind of like Office 2003 did). The look is slightly updated to be more in line with Windows 7. There are some nice video editing features for PowerPoint that you may find useful. Also, the true claim to fame of this program is that it nearly catches up to Google Docs with online options. Finally, this is a three computer license, which is nice since so many people buy one and put it on all the computers in the house anyway... 2/5 John Keitz - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010 Family Pack, 3PC (Disc Version) (DVD-ROM) Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)

    Best if you Plan Ahead

    Windows 7 Home Premium is the best version to choose for older machines and/or simpler networks. The "Backup" offered in 7 Pro can be done easily with free tools, and unless you need complex networking, 7 has what it takes to manage a home network. Last, the 'XP Mode' promised in 7 Pro and above will only work on hardware new enough to support "Virtualization Technology" (stop by Microsoft's website to learn more). This isn't the same as "XP Compatibility Mode", which you will still have for all versions of Windows 7 (there's a great video explanation of this on CNET's website in their Windows 7 Center at CNET TV).Some very important things you need to know about upgrading:1) There are two types of upgrade: "in-place" (where a Vista machine upgrades to 7 and you get to keep all your programs) and "clean" (where you lose all your old programs and settings).2) Anyone going from XP to 7 will have to go "clean".3) Anyone going from a different Vista... 4/5 Winter (USA) - See all my reviews, November 1, 2009

    Make sure your computer has a TPM chip

    In order to use bitlocker, your computer must have a TPM chip in it. If not, you can turn bitlocker on but have to use a USB drive to hold the key file every time you boot it up. An acceptable solution for a desktop, but for a laptop a bit of an inconvenience having a USB drive sticking out of it, plus it takes up a USB port. My 2 month old Dell XPS laptop had the option of having Win 7 Home Premium, Professional, or Ultimate installed, so I assumed I could upgrade afterwards. Turns out they must only put that chip into models shipping with Ultimate already. So double check that if bitlocker is important to you.Other than this issue, the update process was quick and painless. It seemed to take less time than installing a regular software program since it didn't have to load off the CD and do a lot of registry changing.Ultimate itself with the XP mode seems a good upgrade for me.

    An Amazing Compact FileHub!

    The RAVPOWER FileHub came in a neatly packed small box. The RP-WD02 surprised me with its solid feel and well laid out compact design. It appears to be very well constructed, nothing flimsy about it. They weight of it in my hand assured me that it meant business without being too heavy! I appreciate the attractive design of the unit with its clean black look and with the grey rubber port covers. The various ports were easy to access and solid in the way they held the plugs. My IPhone 5 battery was at 35% and I plugged in to the USB port and was up to 100% in 90 minutes and that was while it was being used. Plenty of power left after the charge. The FileHub also provided a strong Wi-Fi signal throughout most of my 3,500 sq. ft. 2 story house. With the unit in my 2nd floor office signal strength was strong on the 1st floor. I made use of the IOS FileHub APP and that worked as described in the manual. I streamed music to my IPhone 5. So far I am very happy with this device and recommend... 5/5 Zonajoe - See all my reviews This review is from: RAVPower FileHub Wireless File Media Transferring Travel Router, 6000mAh (Personal Computers) The RAVPOWER FileHub came in a neatly packed small box.

    This is a very good product that worked perfectly with our iPhones and our iPads! This device allows you to plug in a SD memory card, a USB memory stick or a USB hard drive and then connect to those storage devices using a built in WIFI network that is in the device. The RavPower WIFI Disk contains a rechargeable battery that will hold up to 3000 mAh of current charge to either operate itself for over 5 hours or it can be used to recharge your smart phone. I say smart phone because at 3000 mAh it will recharge your smart phone (Like an Apple iPhone) about 1.6 times but it really does not have enough power capacity to recharge a power hungry tablet like an Apple iPad 2, 3 or 4. Its output is 5VDC at 1 Amp current output.The built in WIFI system can connect simultaneously to up to 5 devices and stream music, movies, store files or audio books that you can listen to. This is perfect for power users who need more memory while on the road.In order to use the WIFI... 5/5 desktopsbyduck "Richard E. Moore" (Ellijay,Ga.
