      Extremely Poor Customer Service

      Box states there are 1000s of home plans included. Website states there are 10,000 home plans included. I have searched the help file and throughout the program trying to access these supposed plans. Maybe i am just overlooking it, but i dont know. I did find one example that said you could access them through the home builder wizard, but mine is called house builder wizard, an option for existing plans was not available. so... I went to HGTV website and tried the live chat, once connected and asked what they could do for me, i asked how to access these plans and waited about 5 minutes with no response. so... I called them at the phone number they had listed and selected the "talk to a tech support" option, which, instead of connecting me to tech support, sends me to one of 3 different software vendors websites. (turns out, HGTV really has no way of contacting them at all through this website....nice (sarcasm)) so... went to nova development website and if you want to talk to tech support, well, it will cost you $9.99 for one call, or $19.99 for three calls. What????? so... I try live chat through them. Live chat box pops, tells you to hold on, but doesnt give you an idea where you are at in the que, so after about 8 minutes, someone comes online. I ask my question, and wait another 4 minutes for them to respond. Guess what the answer was..."you will have to call the help desk. so... i leave them some feedback and then go back to HGTV to try and call them and leave them some feedback, i select buy a product option, which then makes you select one of three developers. No way to contact HGTV i appears. I honestly found both homestyler.com (although, use the home builder and not the new beta floor plan module, I am unable to get saved plans to reload in that one) and floorplanner.com easier and more intuitive to use. I imagine if you took the time to learn the product it might be nice, although the 3d grahics i looked at when i loaded one of the sample plans, did not look anything like the picture quality graphics i saw on the box. BOTTOM LINE.... ...Most of the program seemed dated, especially the kitchen wizard which didnt have an island stove or sink option. ...expect no free technical support ...just didnt seem very intuitive ...cant really say much more about the program, since i really didnt take the time needed to learn it. got to upset about everything above, so i will be returning it and just sticking with one of the free options. ....

      Not very user Friendly

      In the landscaping design, there is quite a bit of difficulty placing items. It took me two hours to get a peach tree on my creation. The plant dictionary is pointless. I cannot look up plants by type (i.e. drought resistant, fruit trees, etc.) and I was also unable to find anything outside of their list. There is a large list of plants that seems completely useless because there is little to no detailed information about the actual plants, or typical size. You have to know what plants you want and all of the information about it before you go on this program - and hope it is in their dictionary. Not a huge selection for yard upgrades. I spent several hours trying to figure this program out and it is just not user friendly at all. If this is only for professionals - then it should state that on the product and not be sold in a retail store. There are very selective color palettes in the home improvement section of this program and in all honesty, I plan to get a piece of paper and a pencil and draw my own design that way. It would be far less frustrating.

      Not the simplest UI but a great value

      My wife and I were looking for a descent program to do some home improvement design for the interior and exterior of our home. Many of the simpler products just did not have the flexibility of the HGTV application. We read several reviews and was made aware the UI is not all that straight forward but luckily I have a little experience with Autocad so it did not take long to get familiar with the environment. My only wish is that it have more objects available to import. While the inventory is pretty good, it could use more options. Solid product but do not recommend if you do not have any previous exposure to CAD applications.

      Pretty basic

      I purchased this to help remodel my kitchen which has some unusual dimensions and angles. It is very difficult to get the software to do what I want, and sometimes impossible. It took me a long time to find (I had to download additional libraries of appliances) something simple and universal as an under counter dishwasher. Once I put in the dishwasher, I cant put a counter over it! The software does give lots of options with lots of restrictions. It gets very frustrating to work within it's limitations on what it's designers thought we (the consumer) would want it.

      Great Home Remodling Software

      This software is great! I found that using it takes a little time to figure out but it comes with a giant book. There are tons of options for cabinets and countertops. I already use adobe products and so digging through menus to figure out how to do things is no big deal. Considering the price of the software it really is an excellent package. The most important thing is that it is letting me see what I think I can do with real measurements. That is the reason I purchased it, and it has been GREAT

      DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE = Terrible

      Posted

      My experience with this HGTV software is so bad I will never buy any HGTV product. It constantly crashes or just goes blank. If you get lucky and actually create a simple diagram do not expect it to print. all it prints are blank pages or Microsoft shuts it down becasue of errors. this happens on both my XP sp3 and Windows 7 computers. I have 25 years experience working on computers and this product is TERRIBLE. It seems to me that HGTV has no quality controls or concern for customer satisfaction. this product should be pulled from the shelves.

      Great product for a fabulous price

      I am doing computer graphic work and was looking for a product that would let me create houses and landscapes to use in my photos. Most products are very pricey and rightly so they do a lot of things. This product did all the same things for less than half the price of the others. It takes a little getting used to but after my first house it became much easier. It even comes with some premade houses. I would recomend it.

      Overall, a good little program.

      For the price, this is a good program if you like creating your own house plans. I would like to see the developers make the program easier to figure out without having to read the whole manual first! But, I'm pretty good with computers and have no serious difficulty in figuring out how to maneuver in the program. However, if you are a real architect, you will not be happy with this program...this is for people wanting to play around with house plans for fun, or to give to an architect as a starting point on what they are looking to build.
