Office Home and Business 2010
Write a Review
Strengths: Fully functional Office suite
Weaknesses: A little hard to find all my tools in word and outlook. I guess I just need to get used to it.
Comments: If you are coming from Office 2007 to this, you will be fine. If not, get ready to relearn all of the Office programs.
Strengths: Easy to use.
Strengths: works good, easy to install
Weaknesses: because of new, need to learn other stuff
"Great product, really helpful."
Strengths: Love it.
Strengths: Office 2010 is so much easier to use than office 2007. Kind of reminds me of the difference between Vista and Windows 7. Just bettered designed and more intuitive to use. Not too mention it is at a good price.
Weaknesses: Can't think of any.
"Best version of Office yet"
Strengths: Big improvement in Excel. Microsoft improved statistical, financial, and math functions in 2010. Fill patterns which were removed in 2007 are back.
Weaknesses: None to speak of...
"This was easy to download"
Strengths: I like the features and the look of these programs.
Weaknesses: So much to choose from.
"A must have for business "
Strengths: Easy to use email.
Weaknesses: Could be a bit more user friendly to customize
Comments: Great product.
"Fast service & good product"
Strengths: The order process was easy and fast. The product was easy to load.
Weaknesses: I'm coming from Office 2003 so there's a lot of changes, but found a website that answers my questions.
Comments: Will be buying again.
Strengths: I transitioned from Office 2003 so there was a bit of a learning curve but not that hard to figure out. It lays things out a lot better, especially in Outlook.
Weaknesses: I haven't found any.
Strengths: An improvement from Office 2007. Very easy to install. Finding the information I need in the help section. I really like the Excel and Outlook
Weaknesses: Wish I had an installation disc.
Comments: I really like buying from Software Media. They are reliable and ship quickly. Would not hesitate to purchase from them again.
Strengths: I really like the ribbon and backstage view features.
Weaknesses: Moving from Office 2003 to 2010 created a big learning curve, but I used the tutorials and in a very short time felt up to speed. Some functions were intuitive anyway.
Comments: Love the new product!
"Great product at a great price"
Strengths: Better menu consistency throughout the different applications; stable and reliable. Excellent price.
Weaknesses: The new interface is very different from 2007, takes getting used to.
"Excellent software and shipping"
Strengths: Great software. Great shipping
"This is a download from backup."
Strengths: It works. It comes with a working key and the download is straight from Microsoft, providing you set up a Windows Live ID/.NET Passport ID.
Weaknesses: The product specifications clearly state that this product is a DVD-ROM. That is untrue. It is a download.
Strengths: CAN'T BEAT OFFICE 2010
Weaknesses: None noted
Comments: Already had product, but upgraded versions due to new computer
Strengths: Easy to use, highly customizable
Comments: Enjoying using the latest version of Office!
"Still learning how to use it."
Strengths: Software support is very good.
Weaknesses: None that I can see at this time.
Comments: Still getting used to it. Very different from 2003. Purchased a self instruction book and going through that step by step.
Strengths: Easy to install. Exactly what I was looking for.
"Much improved graphical interface"
Strengths: I primarily use Word, Outlook, Powerpoint, and Excel. Each has a vastly improved and intuitive user connection to the desired action via the new ribbon feature.
Weaknesses: Users of older versions will have to spend some time perusing the ribbons. A few features (eg: line spacing) could be better grouped.
Comments: Overall, great product with innumerable simple and sophisticated features for the home and professional user.
"OK but still some problems"
Strengths: Crisp interface, looks good. Can cancel from the product splash screen. A major plus is users can no longer rip out and lose toolbars because they are replaced with "the ribbon".
Users are typically initially happy with the upgrade because it does run better than previous versions. That is until some problem crops up.
Weaknesses: "Click to run" version of Office is a mess. It runs virtualized and after a couple months some users lose the ability to double click on a file and have it open in the correct Office program. The solution is to re-install using an install disk (not the "Click to Run" version). Make sure you buy at least one version with actual media.
Outlook 2010 is still not totally email standards compliant. IMAP, although way better than previous versions, still has issues. Syncing of mail folders to server can take many minutes locking the program. Navigation pane options confuse most users ("I lost my calendar"). The email fields (From, Subject, etc) can be inadvertently dragged out and lost by users (biggest user complaint so far). There is no way to lock the fields down so they can't be dragged.
Word 2010, like every other version before it still has major issues with bullets and indentation.
Comments: Office could be the dictionary definition of bloatware. Too many little used features in an overpriced package that people are forced by convention to use.
"Great price and easy download."
Strengths: Great price, easy download and I got the license fast.
"Software Great, Received Quickly"
Strengths: Suite had everything I needed, installed easily.
Comments: Software Media Purchase arrived the following morning and was easily installed on my laptop.
Strengths: very useful, does not crash
Weaknesses: may take a little getting used to
Comments: I cannot imagine anybody owning a PC and not having program installed in it. As a freelance writer, I make use of this product every day and it has truly been an invaluable asset. I have used it for writing articles, web content, and even personal letters to friends and family members. Even when I was in college this was the only program I would use to create my Powerpoint presentations, write my papers (Microsoft Word), and do my assignments for statistics (Excel). You won't find a more reliable program anywhere else. Two thumbs up.
