    "MS Office 2010" has an extremely fast load time.

    While trying to write this review, I kept stumbling over the right words. If you are a "MS Office '07" user, you will quickly notice some new changes. First, "MS Office 2010" has an extremely fast load time. Click. Bang. Loaded. Its that fast. Second, the redundant gui has been stripped down. Even though the annoying ribbon is still there, the robust gui surrounding the applications has been removed. Third, they cleaned up the Office button features. Everything feels more organized. Some hidden features have been brought up to the surface, so you do not have to do any digging. My only issue with this version is the lack of MS Outlook. Bummer.

    Good, but trouble installing

    I could not get MS Office 2010 to install on my laptop. Finally had to re-install Win 7, then MS Office 2010 installed fine. Main reason I finally upgraded from MS Office 2000 was that the opportunity to get 3 licenses for $99 (bestbuy.com deal) would end when Office 2013 came out. Then it will cost as much for just one license or that much every year for a subscription for five licenses. Since I only update my office software every decade or so and only need three licenses this was a good idea for me. Plus, I called Microsoft and they said that I will be able to upgrade one of my three 2010 licenses to 2013 and still keep the other two MS Office 2010 licenses.

    I have had Microsoft 2010 for 2+ months and it is great. It has many new features and most I have not discovered yet. I noticed many new features in PowerPoint. I think that if you have Microsoft 2003 or older you should definantly get this. If you have Microsoft 2007, you can probably sitck with that until the next one comes out because there isn't a huge difference between 2007 and 2010.

    Good value for the standard-setter

    I've been an Office user for almost as long as it's been around. I was satisfied to continue using the 2003 version, but with growing teenagers in the house, the number of laptops is also growing. So, it was time for more licenses. I'd had my eye on OneNote for a while now, so the additional money for this Student edition was not a big deal. Office 2010 is a great value, and OneNote is probably the best reason to buy this instead of using Open Office.

    I just bought 2 new laptops. One had a CD drive and one laptop didn't. This product was an EASY install either way. You could install it through their website or through the CD disk provided. It was perfect for our family because my daughter needed this product for college on her new laptop and I needed it for my new laptop I bought for home for my kids still in high school. You get 3 installations off this product, so I still have one available to use later.

    This bundle includes four Microsoft office applications: Word (word processor), Excel (spreadsheet), Powerpoint (presentation creator), Onenote (file saving and sharing). The collection of applications satifies nearly all software needs for student and home office use and will serve most small business, public service and larger, nontechnical office needs as well.

    It's a great package deal. You pay one price and get to put the suite on three different devices. BUT, if you mess up the installation on the second device, like I did...you have to call into the Microsoft help desk for help. They were fast, courteous, and very thorough in helping. She didn't end the help session until she was convinced that all aspects of the program was working fine again. It's a great deal for a great price!

    I was finally convinced to upgrade from Windows XP. This is better with more options and tools. I am still learning what the differences are and how to use the new toolbars. I have held off because I don't like loosing a quarter of the page to these toolbars but I am getting used to it. I wish you could get all of the options of these programs with the old dropdown menus of XP that only take up a half inch at the top of the page..

    Still unfamiliar with all the changes in this version, but learning the whereabouts of everything is coming easily with use. Enjoy this interface much more than what I'm accustomed to (Office 2000) and actually look forward to using it. Sometimes I find myself thinking of excuses TO use it. Hard to beat the price break for three seats of this package. I'd spend that money again..

    Having MS-Office at home eliminates added training and file conversion issues. I would recommend this for those who are new to using MS-Office at work - to be able to learn more about Word & Excel while at home to gain an edge in their job. For those like me, it means being able to spend less time at the office without loosing productivity. If you have students in your family, this is a no brainer.

    Since the PCs we purchased were already preloaded with a trial version of Microsoft Office 2010, installation was a breeze. Only have to click on the icon, enter the product key, and pc loads it from online. NOTE: It was extremely fast, but that is also attributed to the fact that the PC is fast and the internet connection is FIOS. Kids love it for doing their school projects.

    I purchased this product from Best Buy's "Deal of the Day" which made it affordable. I have wanted to buy this product for updated knowledge on Microsoft Office. I have the 2000 Professional which, of course, does not have all of the new bells and whistles and since I teach basic computer classes in a senior community, current knowledge is always important. Thank you Best Buy.

    Great software for students. It's also clear that Microsoft has paid attention to patterns across all of the applications to come up with easier ways to get things done. The new Paste Preview lets you easily switch between paste options so you know your work will be formatted correctly in your document before you commit.

    I bought the program for an upgrade of my current Office program. I am going to college online and had just started computer classes. It was such a huge help. I could have bought it cheaper through the school but I can put it on 3 different computers with this one. It was cheaper this way when you think about $149 for 3 computers. Awesome!!!

    I love the Note program because it allows me to keep notes in one "notebook" instead of saving dozens of documents. There are certain things you can do in the regular Microsoft but not in the Note program...But I love PowerPoint for school projects, Excel for Math class and just to keep track of my bills and other accounts.

    I have always had Office Professional provided by my employer. I retired and needed to purchase my own software. Though I know Access and Publisher -- I never really used them and find the three programs (Excel, Word and PowerPoint) all I really need. Great price especially since the next version is promised for free.

    I wish computers still came with your word and office programs but they dont so I had to buy it. I am glad I did though because I use the word program all the time and it is easy to use and find your way around. My son needed to send resume's out and without this program there was no real effective way to do this.

    Everyone that owns a computer should have an Office program. This version is all I need to view and create documents . The extra expense for the business version with Outlook is something I don't think is worth the value for me. I'm very happy with my Office program.

    I had my old hard drive replaced with a new one and that meant that I no longer had my Microsoft Office program. So I purchased a new one from Best Buy at a better price than I had been finding elsewhere. I use the excel and word programs alot. It works just great, no problems and was easy to install

    Great product for those who need a 3 in 1 with word, excel and power point. This product is easy to instal and and easy to use with no hassle. The only thing i didnt like about it was that the price was a little high as most microsoft products (programs).
