Pros haven't found any
Cons uses more memory
Summary 2007 uses 3 times the memory to operate. Conversion from 2006 to 2007 increases file size by 25%. Payroll function requires more steps to complete. They keep making it less user friendly.
They keep adding non accouting BS without improving the accounting features. If possible I'd go back to 04 or 05 version.
I guess they figure they have to change something in order to justify charging you $400 a year for upgrades.Updated
the only thing positive I've foung is that they brought back 1 feature from 2005 that they had deleted in 2006.
But the program crashes all the time. Sometimes your data is saved and sometimes it isn't, so be prepare to reenter info.
Pros as a stand alone product it's very good. New features such as mileage recording helps.
Cons setting up in multi user mode is extremely painful and in my experience is not working
Summary I've used this product since 99 and have been overall satisfied. Short comings have been with the inventory side and not having enough character space in the describing items for inventory, but this has been fixed in later versions.
The biggest issue with this software is getting it to run in a multi user mode. After two phone calls to Intuit it still is not functioning properly. The problem seams to be in the the use of a database server manager that keeps "forgetting" where the company database file is located. This appears to be a bug in their software and calls to the support team has not resolved this problem.

Pros Makes Intuit Richer
Cons Bigger, Slower, Less Intuitive than '04 version
Summary I upgraded only because Intuit "held a gun to my head"...my payroll service would no longer work with Quickbooks 2004. So I had no choice but to pony up almost $200 for an upgrade I don't need. The new version is bigger, performs more slowly, requires more clicks to do almost everything I do and generates a bigger data file. In other words, this new version benefits no one but...Intuit! Hold off as long as you can on this one.

Pros Stable in single user mode
Cons Not stable in multi user mode, very poor customization tools
Summary This software seems like it will handle everything you need until you start using it. For pure accounting, it works well and is quite stable. For most everything else, it feels very much as though they added the feature without ever trying to use it themselves. Estimates, invoicing, customer info and tracking, all have a long way to go. I've been using this software for several years now and have finally given up on it. The vast majority of the time I spend in this software is in producing estimates, invoices, and customer management - all of which feel like they are ten years behind the times. You'll find that customizing estimates and invoices to suit your business is so limited that you'll likely end up using other software for that and then be faced with having to enter all the info into Quickbooks after the fact to balance your accounts. I would have switched long ago if not for the hundreds of hours required by my bookkeepers to change everything over to another software. Sadly, we'll be doing that this spring.
Pros Easy to learn and use
Cons Not worth $350.00 to upgrade from 2006 premier.
Summary I was forced into spending $350.00 for an upgrade because Intuit did not build 2006 premier to work with Vista. They even make a point on there website to point out that is not worth the time and energy to offer support for 2006 running on Vista.
What really eats at me is the fact that I use the budgeting feature which is only offered in the premier version. And the cost to upgrade from Pro to Premier according to Intuit is worth $200.00. The $200.00 is not worth the cost. I have already decided that this is the last time Intuit will be getting any of my money. Microsoft office Accounting 2007 is just as easy to use in my preliminary results and is worth investigating more. Now is the time to start preparing your company to transition from Quickbooks to Microsoft office Accounting 2007 and send a message to Quickbooks that they are not the only easy to use accounting software on the block. Goodbye Quickbooks.
