Four crashes in 30 minutes

I just purchased this product an hour ago and it has already crashed four times. I am very disappointed. The product works, but you have to save it incessantly as you will otherwise lose your work.




don't buy this

This is not supported unless you had the new mac books. Wish I noticed this before I purchased it! Looking for a refund so I can buy a later version of Office.




It is terrible! It crashes ALL THE TIME!!!!!

I have had serious issues with my Office Home for Mac. It crashes all the time, its takes FOREVER to save large files. Honestly, its a terrible product because it doesn't work well on the Mac.




Same as for Microsoft

If you have been using Office Home & Student for Microsoft, and you now own a Mac, you won't notice any difference.




Bad deal all the way around

Frustrated with horrible customer service. Program will not accept the correct password. Too many needless security features.

Save your money! Buy 2011 if you use excel a lot. I've never had a Microsoft product so buggy and unreliable. Word seems fine so far but honestly I wish I had repurchased 2011. None of the new features are worth not being able to see what your document actually looks like. Not pleased with this version at all!!!

So far so good

I read a lot of negative reviews about how different this version was so I was reluctant to purchase it. I was using Office 2011 for MAC on my other computers. So far I don't find it that different. Yes, some common functions were not as readily available but once I saw where they were and learned I could customize the ribbons I can't tell much difference between the versions.
