    "Universal" standard.

    Not the biggest fan of how Microsoft nickles and dimes its users. This is the standard "Word" that you basically need for school/work/etc. There are cheaper versions, but if you are like me (5+ computer/devices) this is the most affordable way to go. It has a little bit better functions that the 2013 version (especially when moving between platforms such as taking an excel graph into power point). The online version does NOT have Microsoft Access, so make sure to get either 2016 pc or this (365 5-devices) if you need to use Access.

    Makes my MacBook work like a PC

    I have had a MacBook for several years,but seldom used it for much more than getting my mail or accessing the Internet. I never felt comfortable using Pages or Numbers. Had I put in some effort I could have learned the ins and outs of the Apple software, but Office 365 allows me to turn my MacBook into a PC for Word and Excel. The full Office package is available, but I chose to install only Word and Excel on the MacBook. The main reason I purchased Office 365 rather than the other Office software was because I wanted to install Outlook on our PC and it was not available in the other group.

    I have been a Microsoft Office 365 subscriber for the last two years and have found it to be a good value for users with multiple machines. In addition to the five PC and or iMac's you also get access to the iPad version of the same programs. In addition recent changes in the one drive Storage program you now get one terabyte of online storage for as long as you are a subscriber. My only complaint is that the Mac conversion of this program has not been updated in three years. So far that is not a problem as my needs have been met, but others may wish to have the full version and capabilities of the PC version

    Got this when my wife and I both got new laptops. We got the 5 user license. I'd used these apps at work and although they're a little flashier than older versions, I am not a user who is able to derive sophisticated utility out of word, excel, power point. My wife wanted Publisher. MS made getting these in other ways relatively more expensive (single user only, updates only as long as the product is supported). In this subscriber mode, you get 1 tb per user of one drive storage and perpetual updates as long as you pay annually. So far, the apps work smoothly for us.

    Latest universal MS Office

    Well its a mixed bag. The fact that you get 5 installs on PC's... AND you get 5 more installs on Tablets/iPads. That's a deal. On the other hand, some of the new and improved aspects of Office 2013 leave me befuddled. Most notably are some features taken out of Outlook versus the older 2010 version. So I've actually re-installed Outlook 2010 and am using it in place of Outlook 2013. So if you need Office, its great to have the ability to spread it all over. On the other hand, if you already have what you need installed. I can't see the value in upgrading to 2013 over 2010.

    Not loving the new format

    I don’t love the new format of having everything on the opening page. It seems cluttered and messy to me. I’m much more a fan of hidden away, sleek and clean. Neat and tidy. But the program works pretty much as well as before although once again, I have to search more for what I’m looking for instead of having it at my fingertips right at the top of the page. I’d only recommend it because it’s pretty much the only game in town.

    Business Continuity

    Moving to the Office 365 gives you truly business continuity. I share much of my work. Some inallow editable some just viewable. I love that I can be on my desktop application while someone else is in my shared file and any changes I make, while the file is open for both, doesn’t negatively impact the file. It automatically updates for both parties. I type and shortly after it updates the file for anyone viewing it, in near real time. Amazing.

    Do not like the subscription requirement every year-- just to get updates. It is not for me, I suppose it is useful for families with multiple computers. This version has multiple licenses but updates every year are really not necessary. On the "up-side" the programs are reliable and easy to use just like the older version on my desktop! I gave it a 3- star only because of the subscription issue which is a personal issue not because of the way it works...If you want to use Office-- just pay for the single license version or evaluate your needs before purchasing the subscription/ license version.

    I bought this with my new computer. My computer had a 60 day trial membership so I waited for it to expire. Just tried to load it on my computer and spent 4 hours wasting my time , I chatted with Geek Squad who told me to contact Microsoft who sent me back to Best Buy. Apparently all 5 of my uses have been already used. By who I have no idea! Now I have to take my printed chat with Microsoft into Best Buy, look like an idiot and explain this to them. Unreal. Next time I will order it online.

    The biggest Microsoft piece of garbage we've ever purchased. Only able to upload on an iPad which was over two hours and had to have tech support with someone we could not understand. Product states it is compatible with android and PC. NOT true. Purchased NEW HP laptop, wouldn't upload, called tech support (in India) he remotely logged into NEW computer and could not get it to load. I WASTED TWO hours of my day on the phone with him. This product is not compatible with the android tablet either. Same thing, an hour on the phone - tech support could not upload it.

    The Best Value is Office 365 Home

    Posted
    EricB

    I love office 365. It is the best. I have 5 people on one subscription. I have downloaded the office on several computers and devices with no problem. Or if you don't want to download it, you can access everything on line. The One Drive cloud works great. They now give you 1 TB of memory on the cloud per user - that is amazing. The subscription has the entire office suite, including MS Publisher. If you are operating on a network, the network will cause problems with accessing the One Drive cloud. You will have to save documents conventionally. I would recommend Office 356 Home version to anyone.

    I use the office 365 suite on two PC's and two Macs and love having the subscription so that I can have the same software on all 4 of these machines on two different platforms and share files back and forth over the cloud. I also like having the newest version at all times. Recently the suite updated without me really realizing it until I noticed new fonts and layout that gives the suite a new look and nice refresh. You can't go wrong with this subscription in my opinion.

    We have used Microsoft Office for years and really like it. Just make sure to cancel "auto renew" BEFORE you start to put in your new key code or else you will need to go back to the store and get a new one. It was very time consuming making calls to Best Buy Geek Support and Microsoft Office support to find out they could not fix the problem or give me a new key code. Another 2 hour round trip to the Best Buy store to get another key code.

    Well, its Office. If you live and compute in today's world, you've got to have it. Not a huge fan of the subscription program, but I get it. I had Office for Mac 2011 and last year also added Office 365 when I bought my iPad. I do like that you can add up to 6 users - and each user gets 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage for free. You know you'll get and have all the latest updated and patches too. All in all, its a not a bad deal for $100/year

    I have used office 365 for several years and will continue to do so. I use the multiple installs so it is only $20 per year per computer. that is far cheaper than buying the software as in the past, and is always the latest version and up to date. I purchased the card in the store to renew when my subscription is due in July. I don't want the hassle of Microsoft having my credit card to auto renew. The only drawback is best buy sending me an annoying email about every week telling me it is time to renew, which it isn't, or have geek squad do it for me. (no thanks)..

    Office is as ubiquitous as it is essential.

    I've been using the Office suite in daily life for as long as I can remember and outside of a few kinks here and there, it's served me well. I can also remember the days of having to choose whether or not the latest release was worth the cost over the previous version. With Office 365, one no longer has to choose, we get the latest versions automatically for a reasonable cost for the year. Sure you can download free versions from other vendors that are more or less completely compatible, but for $100 a year for up to 5 installations, why bother?

    I prefer Office over the competition. In my opinion, it is far better than Open Office. As an example, I push PowerPoint to the limits. For me, the Open Office version crashes all the time. I have lost and had to redo hours of work. Not so with PowerPoint. Plus, I'm just comfortable with the apps. I use them at work, so why not at home? But being forced into a subscription is a huge negative. I prefer to buy once, install on my and my daughter's PCs, and use the same version for years. That's not so easy anymore. The licensing had become overly complicated and costly.

    Problem Installing on other PC's

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

    I bought this software thinking that I could put it on several computers in my office. I installed it on 2 computers and then it would not allow me to install again. When I tried to complete the installation on the 3rd computer I received a call from someone saying that the were a authorized tech for Microsoft. He told me that he would like to take over my computer and help me out. I let him and then asked about how much this was going to cost me. He hung up after this call. As a result I have used all 5 of my installs and cannot put it on any other computers.

      Hello Chainman, Microsoft will never call regarding Office installation useless you have gone to our website and requested a call. Also, if you have only installed Office 365 Home on 2 PCs, that would mean you have 3 PC installs left on your subscription. There is no way to use them up unless you are actively using them on other PCs. Please contact us directly using one of these methods; Support Web Portal: www.Support.Microsoft.com . Technical Support: Call 1-877-696-7786 . We apologize for any frustration the Office 365 installation process has caused, and we hope this was helpful to you. Microsoft

    An affordable Office option for the average user

    This is the second time I've purchased this program and I have to say even without doing the auto-renewal the transition was very easy. I initially had some objections to the idea of a year-to-year license, especially after I've been using Office going back to Windows 95. But with the price of the full-feature Office package way out of my bank account, to be able to install a full version of Office on five computers for a fraction of the cost was worth the price. And I haven't even thought about the OneDrive space and the monthly 60 Skype minutes. Kudos Microsoft.

    Just a subscription not a full product purchase

    Bought it for the ease of sharing with my other computers thinking it was a god way to share docs. But as I understand it new docs created with this are in the cloud ONLY. You have to buy another updated version of Office to save your docs to your computer or keep subscribing to this"service" to have access to them in the cloud. Otherwise all your docs go away with the subscription.
