    The Best Buy Windows Rep Was Right!

    I've been using an Office version that was 7 years old. It still worked and got the job done, so I didn't see why I should upgrade. But when getting a new laptop the Best Buy/Windows rep in the store told me all about Office 365. I was skeptical about moving to a subscription, but figured I'd try it. Boy am I glad I did - I love having the latest version. The UI improvements are greatly appreciated, as are all the new features. Plus I have MORE Office programs now...AND the 1TB of OneDrive (which cost if I bought it separately). I'm very glad we moved our computers over to 365.

    Easy to load and use, but check the language

    This was really easy to install on multiple laptops, but the only caveat was that the default language is Spanish (with no mention of that fact anywhere other than when you are installing it, it starts to install "en espanol".) Great for Spanish speakers and the Mexican market--probably shouldn't be the default for US sales. That said, you just need to go to the language preference tab and choose English, or you'll end up doing what I did (load it in Spanish, uninstall it, then reload it again in English.) If it was marked "Spanish version," would have been easy to know I had to change it to an English install...

    Microsoft Office for Home

    This is a 1 year subscription that gives access for 3 users to use MS Office tools. The Office 365 is not bad all (compared with the old ones). The subscription offers 1TB of storage for each licensed user which is a good plus if you are using One cloud. Way cheaper than DropBox 1TB cloud storage and can do the same. I, still, would prefer to buy a stand alone version of Office that I can use for at least 5 years as I am not fan of One Cloud. Sure there are some alternatives for MS Office. They are not the same as MS Office! But can sure do almost 99% what MS Office is doing (excluding the Outlook for Exchange)

    I have always used Microsoft Word, but Microsoft''s attempts to save on production costs have created an unfriendly consumer product. I expected a CD to accompany my Word purchase. Instead, I received a piece of cardboard with involved instructions on how to access Word online. The printing was done with microscopic registration, requiring a magnifying glass. I was interrupted several times with error messages and was finally asked to contact Microsoft technical support to finish installation. Thanks Microsoft. You saved yourself money. Now reimburse me for my time and frustration! Dean Ulsenheimer

    Wish I could purchase a multiple use disk version

    I recently upgraded my desk and laptop computers and with that moved from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Had difficulty loading my Microsoft Office so I decided to update that as well. Found that my choices were to either purchase multiple copies of the Suite or go to Office365. I am not a fan of subscription based services, but I chose to go with a 12 month subscription to Office365 Home (Up to 6 people). It has been working well. Just wish I could get a single disk for multiple machines like in the old days.

    What happened to my old Office?

    So, another way to get more money for users. Still a good product and I like that I can put it on my iPAD, Surface 3, and base station computer. My biggest concern is that they raise the subscription price over time. I do prefer just to license software the old way. But it and use it. When you want to upgrade, you pay for it.... So, not a big fan of the business model but the software makes me more productive. They still need to do a better job integrating photo editing into the core product. They get an F rating for not recognizing this as a core feature that one time or another we all need to do that.

    Great, but makes my Mac a tad slow

    I installed the Microsoft Office on my Mac. The software is very good and works exactly like it would on a PC. No complaints on that department. Here is the issue: I have some other software on my computer, mainly design stuff, illustrator, photoshop, cinema 4d, etc., which is already a load on it, so when I installed the MO the poor guy just gave up and got unusually slow for a Mac; not PC ridiculously, annoyingly, stupid slow; just Mac slow, which is not a big issue but it can be a pain under some circumstances. It is a great product which can be installed on your iphone, ipad, etc. Love it and would recommend to anyone.

    I've used the Office suite for years and years, and have been frustrated at upgrades. With a number of laptops and desktop computers, when Office 365 offered a 5 machine subscription with 1 Tb cloud storage for each install, plus web access to the apps as well, it was a very easy decision. If you upgrade with each new version, which if a good idea of you consult and your clients have different versions of Office, the price of the annual subscription is actually much less than 5 upgrades for the full office suite. Plus the patches are just about invisible and very much better than the old way. I really like the way this works.

    I think most would agree that the programs within OFFICE are good. Excel, Word, PowerPoint, etc...and I do like the options you have now with putting OFFICE on multiple devices. However, I absolutely HATE the fact that you have to create an account and download it now. Not to be too old school, but if you're like me, you probably already have about 1000 different accounts out there with unique passwords, etc...and this is one that I did not want to create just to get the programs. It would have been nice to simply have the CD and upload the same way we used to do it. Oh well...times are changing...

    Ultimate Productivity Pack

    The Office 365 Home suite is great for maximizing productivity, even on the go. I work while in transit often and it's great to be able to work on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from my mobile device and continue my work from my laptop when in the office. Thanks to the 1TB of cloud storage, I can also save large video files that I can access from anywhere. The performance of the applications is very good. The office apps open quickly and are very responsive. I would recommend to everyone!

    Does what it is supposed to do

    At this point we all know about Office. I will say that I am no a huge fan of the subscription model HOWEVER when you can catch a deal it is a good way to get office on a number of computers without breaking the bank in one big chunk. I dinged one star because it seems to me that this version pops up a lot more messages, like hey try this template, or how about this theme stuff compared to what I was previously using. One other little thing is that it does seem to be slower to open and complete operations, but that could me becoming old and impatient.

    I have been using Microsoft products for many years. New computers mean either purchasing new programs or calling tech support and trying to extend license from previous computer. After awhile that becomes tedious, and face it, only extending an old version. So was a bit unsure about shelling out money EVERY year but here's the deal - 5 computers with updated Microsoft Office. That is 20 dollars a year per computer for the lastest Office product.. Do the math. I DO use ALL 5 licenses. Plus paid 20 dollars less each year because both years I purchased a computer product that qualifed at BEST BUY for 20 discount off 365. I'm good!

    I absolutely love that this software just works when I want it to. My favorite part is that since this is the home version and up to 6 people can share it every member of my family has access to onedrive from their phones with 1TB of storage. This allows their phones to automatically backup their pictures and videos to the cloud for extra piece of mind. This is my third renewal and Best Buy makes it easy to do.

    We bought this product for my son's new computer and it worked great but when I tried to install it on to our computers and there's where we had the trouble. This package is for 5 computers and it only works on one. We have tried to call geek squad for assistance a couple of times and we mysteriously we were hung up or "disconnented" ? . When we fallow the directions there is no direction for a multi user section. Stuck right now w/ useless program for now. I haven't tried to call Microsoft for help right now because of me being really busy. Wish me luck.

    Even with as much as open source office products have improved over the years, nothing works quite as well or displays existing real MS office docs as accurately as MS office itself; I find it a must have. And while it may feel more expensive to be paying a yearly fee, the full suite single license of office used to be several hundred dollars, so I don't find it all that bad especially considering most of their subscriptions include multiple licenses.

    This package includes Publisher and Access along with the core Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. These latter three can also be downloaded on your phone or tablet, but they don't always play nice with my android. Publisher 2013 has some new features **text effects** being my favorite. Some advanced options working with pictures in Word, Publisher, and PowerPoint are different, which have proven both better and worse depending on the project. The biggest plus for this package over a permanant install is you can download it on 5 pcs and you get a terabite of cloud storage for each (up to 5) Microsoft account you link to it.

    This is my third year as a subscriber with Microsoft Office 365, and I will continue to take advantage of this suite for the foreseeable future. Given that it is often on sale for $79.99 at Best Buy and you get a TB of cloud storage and five licenses for Office on desktop computers, you really are getting a lot of bang for your buck. Definitely beats the old days when Microsoft would charge hundreds of dollars for every iteration of Office. With 365 you are always on the latest version of Office, and if you sign up for the Insider program, you can stay on the bleeding edge.

    Most people have used Microsoft Office for years, not much has changed, but it is now much easier to manage multiple computers and users under one account, that part is the part that is nice. Also it is nice that you get 1Tb of cloud storage with the subscription. This package is great if you have several computers in the house and they all need office on them. Otherwise its the same great office applications that you are use to using so no learning vastly different ways of working on things.

    The 5 stars are for the software, not the installation. I had no problem installing it on my computer, but when I tried on my daughter's computer it wouldn't load. We took the problem to the geeks and after 30+ minutes waiting for our "appointment" and another 20 or so dinking with our computers, we found out every installation has to be done through MY Microsoft account. If I knew that, I would've set up a new account because now everyone has my password.

    My house needed to upgrade our Office product beyond the trial stages and chose to do so with the multi computer setup. For the price you cant beat it. I think Microsoft is out to gouge you in the long run though, as you have to renew the subscription every year now, where in the past I bought the same type of product for one price (a little more expensive) and it had a lifetime use with it. We are a family on a budget and don't know if we will be able to renew at the time it comes up and might have to wait. I wish they would go back to the old system, even if it costs a little more.
