    Needed this for my son's new laptop

    I'll be up front and admit that I am not thrilled that Microsoft has made this product as an annual subscription, but we needed the Microsoft Suite for my son's new laptop and purchased it in conjunction with the laptop. Fortunately, we can use the subscription on 5 computers, so we're getting good use of it in our home. I just wish the price was lower for the subscription, but that's not Best Buy's fault.

    Fairly Easy to Install

    This product allowed me to update the other computers on our system so that we all had the same version of the Microsoft Suite of office products. It was fairly easy to share but because it was being shared it was a little tricky, most likely due to the operators but it worked out easy enough. Once installed the programs worked great and helped a great deal having the same version from computer to computer.

    it was a little difficult to get used to, probably because it's the newest version of Microsoft Office & we're used to Office 2010. Why keep people having to upgrade when there was nothing wrong with the older version? I do realize this is something the industry is pushing and they're making it more expensive to buy the traditional Microsoft Office. Next question--would I recommend?? Well, the other choices are limited.

    The "New" Word in "Word"

    I gave this product four stars out of five because I love writing and Microsoft Word is, for me, the near-perfect vehicle for my literary creativity. In addition, Microsoft Word 365 gave me further reason to be enchanted: Installation without having to insert a disk! I was surprised at first; I initially thought that something was missing. However, I quickly warmed up to that orange card. It's an excellent improvement.

    This is a money making deal for Microsoft. Instead of each person buying the Office package for around 100 dollars each, now you can get this product for yourself and 4 friends for 100. Here is the catch each year from what I understand you and your friends have to renew their software for about 100. If this is true, I would suggest that you just buy the individual software and go with that and the updates to it.

    I purchased Office 365 when I bought a new laptop. I had an older version but decided to update. I could not load the program, even after several escalations to MS office tech support. I finally had to go back to the store where I purchased the software and it required a complete reboot of my system. I use Excel and Word frequently even though I am no longer working, so hope I get use to the new version in Windows 8.

    We had an old version of Office for Mac and I wanted to upgrade it. I really liked the fact that we can upgrade versions with our subscription which worked out really well as within a couple of days after purchasing this software, the 2016 version of office for Mac was released and we were able to do this free of charge. Installation was easy. Not too thrilled this is a yearly-subscription but overall; I'm happy.

    It's Microsoft. Where else are you going to go?

    Meh. You need a word processing program. You need a spreadsheet program. You might even need a presentation program (PowerPoint). You have a ton of choices for a mail client though. You also have multiple choices for cloud-based storage and One Drive is kind of a pain in the butt as it repeatedly asks you to sign in although it is pretty large (1TB). It's hard to avoid the 800-pound gorilla...

    Many new features, but confusing to use.

    As a long time user of Microsoft software, it is good to see some of the improvements in the new version. However, there are so many changes in the new version that it really is almost totally different from the previous versions. It is difficult to find out how to use some of the features because they are not logical or predictable. I would still recommend it, mainly because I do not see a reasonable alternative.

    Value only if used for more than 1 PC

    We purchased the 5 PC version thinking we would use it on more than one device, however that hasn't occurred so the cost is much higher than the value we are getting from this version. The download was simple and easy to follow. Since we haven't had to download the program to another PC, unable to comment on the ease of use regarding the download process for more than 1 PC.

    I have had a few different Microsoft Office packages, using a student platform, and as home user- and found this one to be the best in terms of: number of applications, devices allowed, and owning the apps, rather than purchasing a subscription. This is the best bang for your buck!

    I bought a different laptop before this and tried to go with the less expensive, less powerful option. After purchasing and trying it, I realized a needed a better laptop especially doing simple transitions between Office and a web browser. I returned it and bought this laptop. This will be a great laptop that I can grow into and now that month has passed by and it is definitely worth the money.

    I dont use it as often as i would have thought. But still find it a necessary product/programs to have. They talked me into buying the one for 6 people to use, even after telling them that the devices both myself and family had. I definitely did not need the 6 person disk.

    I have used MS Office since the 90's. It took me awhile to come to terms with a subscription vs. "buying" Office. What you by is a license to use on one device. It is not like buying a tool you can use anywhere. Buying 365 Home gives you 6 licenses and is always up to date with any new version..

    Working This Win 365

    What I like most about Windows 365 is the flexibility of installing it on multiple platforms. The annual renewal was a bit problematic on my Apple systems with the installed version of Microsoft already onboard. Have to really work at the installation whenever it’s time for the annual RENEWAL! Renewals are no fun for me.

    New way of having multiple users is not great.

    Previously I have purchased Microsoft Office for multiple users and it was not difficult to download for all the computers for installation. This newest version can be a real pain. Microsoft requires you to set up an account with them and then the original account holder has to invite the remaining users to share it. Seems to be many more unnecessary steps from how it used to be done.

    Nice Overhaul for Macs

    I suppose the subscription model is the way of the future as it relates to software pricing. It would be nice of Microsoft to surprise and delight its 365 subscribers w/ major updates, as in, ones that would usually require a separate SKU purchase, for non-365 subscribers within any given 365-day period. That, opposed to major upgrades [for Mac] that historically occur on a very infrequent basis.

    But the main reason I bought it was the fact I load on multiple computers and renew or cancel each year versus having to buy for each new computer, I have 5 computers and 3 of them have old versions of Office so now I can update without purchasing a new version. Great idea for multiple computer owners I have told a number of my associates about this new direction in getting the software for their use.

    I love office! The programs are great and easy to use. You can adjust the settings to your own liking. If you know you’re going to need this for more than 1 year, than don’t buy it! Just buy the program from the website! I only paid $120 for a lifetime. And with this you have to pay yearly.

    Works much better than Office 2007

    I purchased this because my office 2007 was getting dated and I needed a program that would be like what I use at work. Office 2007 support is coming to an end, so with this I can upgrade all my computers (up to 5). I know I'll have to pay once a year, but it's up to date, has all the programs i need and Outlook is sooo much better. Mobile apps work well also.
