    I'm just not a fan of subscription priced software, so even though I probably miss out on features/updates, I don't care that much. I'm not an office power user, so I've never had a need that wasn't covered with this product.

    I got this for my PC and was happy with the purchase. Like having a physical copy on my pc I stead of paying a costly monthly subscription.

    Best option to avoid the annual subscription model. Office would have lost me without this option.

    No idea why Microsoft decided to go towards the yearly subscription model, they don't update the programs enough to justify the cost. Pay for the program once and but the new one when they do a new release.

    I use MS Office at work, and have so for the last 19 years. I love MS Office appliations. I do wish it weren't a subscription service any longer, but I'll get past that I'm sure.

    I really like this software package so far. I chose this package instead of the yearly subscription because I didn't feel we needed the latest version every time there was a change. I will upgrade as needed.

    This is a great product for a great price. I am not sold on the annual subscription. I still like owning my own software.

    Bought new laptop, needed Office and I was not about to buy it every year so I bought a copy. Works like older versions and these subscriptions are a rip off. Anyone agree.

    I do not like program subscriptions. I purchased this version of office because it's a one-time expense. It does everything I need and it does it well.

    Bought this to go along with my new Surface Pro. I hate buying these Office products, but I need the functionality that Word and Excel provide. I also hate to get into subscription services (like Office 360) that tie you in for life and end up costing you a lot more in the long run. I realize with the subscription services that you may get access to newer features along the way, but I'm comfortable with that.

    Its a very basic microsoft office package. Works as intended. I would recommend to anyone. I purchased the one time license. I don't like paying a yearly subscription so I purchased this.

    Microsoft and Word

    I needed Word to write creative writing pieces (fiction and non-fiction). So far, my experience has been satisfactory. @@@@@@@@ Consumers should be aware of two different packages from Microsoft: one with an annual subscription which requires consumers to put a credit card on file; the other option is to buy a one year subscription. The one year subscription doesn't automatically update with the latest version of Microsoft Office but doesn't require a credit card on file. The caveat to the latter will require consumers to purchase the annual update, if he or she wants it. @@@@@@@

    No hassle for subscription

    This is the classic package. The whole Office 365 is quite annoying to me with the updates with connecting to the subscription online and etc. But this, it is what I remember. Just what you need for a Master's Thesis and no hassle. I had the Geek Squad install it on my new computer for me and it works without a hitch. Best bang for your buck for what most people need in my opinion.

    perpetual license is the way to go.

    i'm so glad that Microsoft still has perpetual licenses available for their software. So many companies are going to a subscription based system and I refuse to buy into that. I've been using office 2007 since well....i'm guessing 2007 and it has been great for 11 years at one price. This new office has a lot more features and i'm still getting used to it so not as productive as of now. But knowing that the software is mine and I wont have to pay anymore for hopefully the next 10 years is awesome. I knocked off one star simply for the fact that you can only install it on one device. It would have been great if I could put it on my desktop and laptop.

    Works Perfectly As Advertised

    This Microsoft Word edition works just like it was advertised to be. It replaces the previous versions of Home and Student 2019. I was a little concerned because I saw all the bad reviews but don't worry. I have had no problems with it. The only problem I had was finding where you actually download the application. Once I figured it out I ran this and it worked as good as gold. Here's a tip for downloading the code. You make a account on Microsoft(or use one you use to log in to your Microsoft account at startup). The place that you download the code is under "office 365" where it says "code confirmation" or something like that. In the middle of the page when you log in. After you do that you type in product code and your good to go. I was confused because I knew that the office 365 was a paid subscription but when I typed my code in it showed the version I bought "home & student 2019 and wasn't the paid subscription version. One would think there'd be a option to download the code under its name but the name you look for is office 365 to download the code for this office. Now to the basics. . this computer application has worked very smoothly. A word of warning though. It works with Microsoft 10 but may not with other Microsoft's. That being said, this app comes with Excel, Outlook, and PowerPoint. There are plenty of new templates to use, including a 3D clip art and drawing tool. If you are doing mathematics there is a pen you can use to draw a math operation to calculate and it translates this to numbers. Very handy if you don't want to type out formulas. There are also the new themes and the usual tools that are very nice to use. I have used this application and feel that it is very updated and has easy storage of documents. All in all, I'd say this was a good investment and meets the requirements that our family needed
