    I use Microsoft Office programs a lot and they are easy to use. However, do not like the idea of having to pay to renew the program every year, but that's the trend now. You can get a bundle with a one time fee that's a little higher, however, you do not have access to updated programs. Would have preferred to pay the one-time fee and just used the same program version year after year.

    No complaints, other than the yearly fee, guess that's where things are going these days to keep up with the best technology

    I hate having to pay a yearly fee. It's hard to find and buy a perpetual license.

    I purchased this version because I needed MS Publisher. I'm not so sold on the idea of having to pay an annual fee, but we'll see in the next year or so how the upgrades are working.

    The older version of Office doesn't work on the new computers. So now we are all forced to buy it again and can't just buy it once... they changed it to a yearly fee ( they call it subscription). The only reason I would " recommend it to a friend" is because my friends wouldn't be able to open any word files without it.

    Installed on 3 laptops, everything you would expect if you have used office before. It's nice to know I will get all updates. Downside is annual fee.

    Extremely easy to install and set up. And as you would expect, Microsoft Office is a necessary for everyday professionals in their daily lives. My only negative comment is I dislike having the annual subscription membership fee but it is what it is...

    I have purchased the Office 365 prior and believe it to be the best product for the price. Although some software is installed on NEW computers, it appears older systems have to pay the renewal fees now. Yet, Office 365 has ALL the software at a reasonable price.

    Been running Office 2007. Decided to go with this 6 user solution to cover myself, my spouse, a business PC and our laptop, tablet and phones. I don't use any more features than 2007 has, but 365 is more secure. While I am reconciled to the annual fee, I refuse to use any cloud features. My stuff stays on my hardware. Should be easier to opt out of this feature.

    You know - it's Office

    It's Microsoft Office, folks - we all know the rest. I've never used any other word processing software, so I've got nothing to compare it to. I love Excel, for everything from actual spreadsheets using math and all that, to lists and inventories. I'm furious that the folks at Microsoft make us pay an annual fee - really furious. I probably should bring this to a halt before my fury erupts into language not suitable for this venue. So, to wrap it up, love the software, hate the maker.

      Hello MerryT, Many of the updates made to Office were from feedback we received from consumers like you. With this feedback, Microsoft came out with Office 365 (subscription based only) versions and Office 2016 versions sold at a one-time retail price and you own it forever. We hope this was helpful to you Microsoft

    The Best Way to ‘Own’ Office, If You Really Use It

    Office 365 gets you every application that is available in the Office suite for up to 6 people and each of them gets 1TB of OneDrive storage. The cloud storage alone almost justifies the price. You also get the mobile apps as well. That being said, being on the subscription plan means you only get it as long as you're paying for it. For someone who just needs Office for very basic or infrequent tasks it's probably not worth it, but for everyone else this is the best way to get Office. Chances are if you're looking at Office you already know why you need it. The core applications that have been there for years are all here; Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. They're all the best they've ever been and Microsoft has done a really good job of gradually improving them over the years with some really thoughtful new features. Some of the more recent menu changes can be a little confusing at first if you haven't used Office in a while, but I adapted to them quickly. You're also getting OneNote, which has been my favorite Office application ever since it first came out (and happens to be the one you can get for free). There are a few little niche apps that are available, but not installed by default. Sway is really interesting and I'ven't used it much yet, but it feels like a more personal take on something like a presentation or even a vacation album; something you might use with your friend and family instead of a meeting in the conference room. There's also a to-do list app and a pretty decent mobile scanner app. Office 365 integrates into Windows 10 really well. It's optimized for touch and mouse input, though I will always feel most productive using a mouse and keyboard. The look and layout feel clean and organized and it's consistent across applications. There's a lot of features packed into each application, but the ones I need the most are always easy to find. Saving files to OneDrive also has the advantage of letting you autosave and share like Google Docs and it feels just as seamless. I've been a Microsoft Office user for a long time, so there's probably a little bit of bias here, but Office 365 feels like peak Office. I don't love having to pay a yearly fee for it; it feels like everything's turning into a subscription these days, but I do feel like Office is better off for it. You can still buy Office without paying the subscription, but it costs more up front and you're missing out on the best it has to offer buying it that way. The cynic in mean knows Microsoft is probably doing that on purpose, but it's hard to ignore the value.
