Customers Reviews

We Prefer the Older Quicken Basic to the Deluxe Versions.

4.0 out of 5.0 by Larry D. Nail on January 14, 2013
I have been using Quicken Basic 2006 for many years. We are now using 2007. One thing that annoys me about Quicken is that they drop their support after three years or so trying to push their customers into buying the newer versions of their product. Their tech support is the pits. Over the years I have not wanted all the bells and whistles of their deluxe versions, preferring to use the program to mostly track my checkbook and savings account. With each newer interface the tabbed categories increase, and the so called help that quicken offers gets more annoying by the version. If you don't need quicken to drive you crazy with their porfolio advice and such, this 2008 is about the last version I know of that is close enough to Basic. Quicken Basic 2006 is great, but harder to find than once upon a time. The other thing is that with the newer versions, come conversions of files from the older versions to newer formats. Sometimes that is problematic. Not all of the quicken versions were great improvements over the previous year.
Quicken has a good backup function that I highly recommend users get acquainted ...

5.0 out of 5.0 by Paved With Gold on September 28, 2015
It is a tried and true program that makes life a little easier. I don't use any of the advanced functions. I can import bank records but NOT using the built-in method. I have to download files from my bank to my computer or USB thumb drive then import those files to quicken. My bank said that is the only way to do it without compromising the bank's security. Quicken has a good backup function that I highly recommend users get acquainted with and USE.
Got a new computer, could not transfer older Quicken ...

Got a new computer, could not transfer older Quicken.
Bought this one because all the newer versions require you purchase it each year.
Useless Product

1.0 out of 5.0 by Ben Hogan on March 19, 2013
I bought this 2008 Quicken in 2013 to try to save some money since I really did not need the latest and greatest version of quicken. Apparently,to force people buy the new versions, older versions of Quicken are designed to become obsolete by not allowing certain features to remain. Specifically, the ability to update your accounts online automatically stop working making the product useless. I only paid $10 for it so no big loss. Now I know not to buy the newer versions.
It just keeps getting worse

2.0 out of 5.0 by Dogcatcher on March 15, 2011
Quicken began as a very good product, but for my purposes its usefulness has declined as Intuit piled on more and more glitz together with marginal features that seem designed more to get checkmarks in a review than any practical purpose. Quicken 2000 may have been the last version that really focused on the check register.

If you have several investments, Quicken may still be your best bet, mainly because it doesn't have much competition. (Gnucash isn't ready for the masses, and Microsoft Money has died.)

If you're looking to track revenue and expenses in a small business, hunt up a copy of QuickBooks Simple Start. It has limitations, but it is free.
Forced To Upgrade

3.0 out of 5.0 by Terry on August 25, 2008
I purchase this upgrade because I recently got a patch from from Intuit to "upgrade" my version of Quicken. When it did, it broke the ability for me to download information from my banks. (if you have Quicken 2005 or before, it would no longer support the ability to download your statements directly into Quicken) this was HUGE for me. I have been on quicken for almost 10 years but I was so mad I looked at switching to MS Money. But after calming down, I decided to just go ahead and fork over the money for the new one. (I was very happy with Quicken 2005)

Well it installed fine, but it appears that I do not have the history going back as far as I had.

I did have backups of my data, but I did not do one just before this new install that updates the database. Lesson learned... make a backup just before new install.
this program installs on windows xp and on windows 10 ...

5.0 out of 5.0 by jeepcountry on May 26, 2016
this program installs on windows xp and on windows 10...It has been the basis of our finances for many years...We only use it for the register and for the basic forms - nothing online....It has served us very well
Quicken 2008 Still Useful

4.0 out of 5.0 by William McIntosh on July 6, 2013
If you have simple financial accounting and record-keeping needs, Quicken Deluxe Old Version 2008 may be all you ever need , and the price is right!
I don't find the online updating very helpful because of the setup time, research, and effort required, but it's all there if you want to take the time...primarily useful for backups and centralization of records...but be willing to devote the time necessary to make it really work for you....love those little cash register sounds--pretty cute!

The software itself is very intuitive and easy to use. One of the best features is the "create a category" buttons that allow you to customize ffinancial transactions according to your own situation.

I'm holding off a star because Intuit needs to find a way to streamline the online setup at financial institutions by simply riding along when you sign into the institution and then recording your information, after you give Quicken permission to do so. perhaps newer versions now do this
