Pros None - Didn't even open the box after getting it home
Cons Does Not import existing Quicken data (on back of box)
Summary Purchased (rebated) along with annual TurboTax purchase, thinking I should always pick up the latest Basic or equivalent version to keep my Quicken current. I've been using Quicken for >15 years. Got home, read BACK of the box, "Does NOT import existing Quicken Data"!! What a waste. Not even worth opening the box. I'll stay with my 2007 version - I suppose this'll become a standoff now between us Basic users and Intuit to see who will blink and buy "Deluxe" (or change to MS Money) first. Warning to Quicken beginners: Think about next year before buying - Quicken Deluxe will not be cheap.
Pros Nice red box.
Cons Wipes out other installed programs
Summary The package stated that it would not import old Quicken files. This was fine with me; I'm not interested in reliving ancient history, but Intuit didn't tell me that it was going to corrupt my Quickbooks Pro 2006 program as well as my Quicken 2004 program and would not let me reinstall either of them. Now I have nothing...
Pros No reason to buy
Cons Must toss all previous Quicken Data and start over
Summary This product is worthless; an effort to take more of your money. Note: It is not a replacement for Quicken Basic. Look elsewhere.
Pros it loaded ok
Cons requires upgrade to quicken 2008 premium
Summary If you use quicken 2007 basic, continue to use it.
Pros Nice, updated interface
Cons Won't convert previous Quicken data
Summary I too have 2007 Basic and still have problems with flashing screen. Tried this program. Had to start fron scratch as this version will not convert. Am not paying $50-$60 for Deluxe which has features I do not need. Keep getting Quicken server errors when trying to update online accounts. Have been a faithful Quicken user for many years. Will not buy Quicken again! MS Money, here I come!
