    I hate this product, very slow and not what I was expecting. I should have stayed away from cloud based Office,

    Installed Office 2013 as an upgrade from 2010. Programs open very slowly. Microsoft needs to abandon the whole account login portion of their products. I get the need for safety and security, but having to login with a Microsoft account seems rather intrusive and slows the programs down. The themes for all of the office product have a white background, which apparently cannot be changed. Gets very difficult to see after a short while and becomes quite blinding if reading a spreadsheet too long.

    A bit speedy yearly, but no worries about product going out-of-date.

    Outlook 2016 Crashes Computer; Slow Loading

    My computer crashes 4-5 times per day since installing Office 365, and seems to be caused by Outlook. Had a Microsoft certified tech expert reinstall it and check it but cannot figure out why it crashes. Excel and Word are very slow to load, clumsy to use. The programs have supposedly been changed/updated but nothing seems to be an improvement. I would wait until the bugs are out, if ever, and then try it. I would not recommend it.

    I find it a little slow to load. It is slightly confusing to use to share documents and sometimes when we download we have a hard time finding the file again

    This will likely be Microsoft's last office program, from now on it will be subscription based. it's OK, it runs a bit slow on older systems but that's whats to be expected.

    I purchased this and found it to be ok. It causes the computer to be slower than the previous office version I had. It is nice that it works for 5 users.

    Office works great on our Windows based units. The 'Apple' application is not so good. While Office does run on 'Apple' it does seem to confuse and slow down the operating system.

    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 was slow to upgrading my MS Office. Had Office from a few years ago and felt like I did not need to change. Finally purchased the new Office 360 and Love it. Big improvement and worth the price.

    Office is getting layered

    First time to try the 365 version of Office. I like the convenience and updates online without keeping up with another CD to load, but the light, low contrast and page layout of Outlook slows down the scanning of emails in my Inbox and other folders. I prefer the single line, black text in straight columns as before (Office 2007-sorry, I'm slow to upgrade). It also seems to be too much to strap on to this older technology all the new features and technology of online, live and SEO systems like the Google/Gmail enterprise. It just seems to be stacking changes and new capabilities in layers without a lot of smooth interaction. It really slows down my machine. The price was great for 5 licenses and it gives me a full-up capability for one year to allow me to decide if I'll stick with Office as I have since the beginning or finally drop it for a new generation of technology. When it became too hard to put two gmail accounts into the older Outlook, I was already on my way to shifting away from Office because now I have to go online to check one Gmail account and the other is my primary in Outlook. If I do drop Office I'll greatly miss the sorting and searching ability of Outlook over Gmail, etc. I would still recommend it, with caution.
