"excellent package for price. "

Comments: best way to be able to use files that MS window users insist on sending.
"Works great! No problems! "
Strengths: Seems more intuitive than older versions.
Weaknesses: Wish the color options for "fill" were the same as the old version, but you can manually produce any color you wish, as always
Comments: I like this. It's keeping current with the updates, and that's very important!
"Good product at great price"
Strengths: I remember the days when you used to have to take out a loan to purchase MS Office. Thank you free market!
Weaknesses: Slow loading.
"Great product for family sharing"
Strengths: multiple licenses at price of one at Best Buy
Comments: This was a great find. My daughters have Macs but I am used to PC, so this made a great Christmas gift. They each got to install Word etc on their PCs so can easily share docs and spreadsheets.
Strengths: Opens and edits file well
Comments: Mac Office 11 met expectations well--including opening and editing files created
on a Windows PC without issue. I have no complaints.
"Great value for MS Office!"

Comments: This is a great value for industry standard software at home or school. Cant go wrong!
Strengths: OEM product and package at a dsicount

"A solid Office suite for Macs"
Strengths: Attractive and intuitive interface, relatively seamless compatibility between Office for Windows as well as prior versions, macro and Visual Basic support in Excel, applications load quickly versus prior versions.
Weaknesses: Price is still expensive, Home & Student edition doesn't include Outlook, large file footprint
Comments: I recently upgraded to Office 2011 for Mac from Office for Mac 2004. The first thing I noticed, and greatly appreciated, was how much more quickly the various apps opened compared to the 2004 version. The interface is great, in my opinion. It is based on the "Ribbon" used in Windows versions beginning with 2007. However, it is less distracting and more intuitive than the interface found in the Windows versions I've found. It is a definitely a huge improvement over the Mac 2004 interface. Another main selling point for Excel power users is the reintroduction of macro support. Despite several complaints about problems with Visual Basic in Office 2011 mentioned in reviews elsewhere, I have had no problems thus far with macros and Visual Basic editor. Over all, I am happy with Office for Mac 2011. It is an substantially improved over prior versions for Mac and has a great interface and is easy to use if you are already familiar with Office products.
"Great Product. Fast Delivery"
Strengths: I love the new features. It works wonders. I can't wait to try out everything else.
Weaknesses: I rather prefer the 2008 format.
Strengths: The icons are great. I find it very easy to use and navigate. The different templates in Word are perfect for all the various documents I create.
Weaknesses: None that I can find.
"Update of Microsoft Office"
Strengths: Similar to Office 7 for Windows. Makes moving between platforms much easier. Intuitive use of templates and other features.
Weaknesses: none that I have found so far
Comments: I have used MS Office for many years. In my estimation, each update has improved the product--which is already the best on the market.
"Fast service. Quick shipping."
Strengths: Hassle-free purchase and installation.
