Customer Reviews:

  • My experience
    I normally don't write reviews - just read them. In this case I decided to because I am completely satisfied with the product. I have not had to contact support, however, and so have no input on that aspect and I got it for [...] when CompUSA was tubing. I will also say that I have PDF Converter Pro 4. I have been able to create complete and accurate pdf's from text/graphic material - scanned as jpg - sometimes e-mailed to me sometimes I create, from cad drawings, from internet pages, etc. If desired, I then have been able to convert to editable documents such as Word docs with 100% char. recognition with the rare exceptions being when the quality of the original doc is poor and even then the result has been way better than other OCR programs I have used. It converts a jpg or doc file to pdf in seconds. If you need to take some piece of printed/electronic work and make pdf's and/or editable docs or spreadsheets from them this one works very well for me....more info
  • Prepare for Disappointment
    I bought this software because the price was reduced to an affordable level. After installation, it failed to recognize my printer on several jobs and took forever with some pdf conversions. When I uninstalled it, it altered my printer drivers, which all had to be re-installed. I'm going back to Adobe software. Their online pdf converter is free and the pdf software, though pricvey, actually does work. ...more info
  • Professional PDF Converter 5
    Excellent product. I have used many of its features over the last few weeks. I have been using this program on a computer with Vista Home Premium as the operating system. It has run well. ...more info
  • Don't Waste Time or Money
    There is no magic button for converting PDF files that are easy to edit. This software totally messed up my computer and took many features over. Spent countless hours trying to get it to work. Gave up. "Manual" leaves a lot to be desired. Even though Amazon's price is far superior to the manufacturers price and attitude, this software is not worth any amount of money. It simply does not work. ...more info
  • Piece of Junk
    I must agree with the bad ratings for this product. I tried to install this product on my computer at home. (Windows XP MCE with SP3) I can not get it to activate either Automatically or manually. When I try to activate automatically it just sits there and does nothing. I tried manually and it gives me an error message saying the Serial number is no good.
    I guess I will go back to version 4.0...more info
  • Bad experience ... terrible support!
    Nuance PDF Converter Professional 4 had some really bad reviews, which
    made me somewhat nervous when purchasing version 5. However when
    comparing PDF Converter to Acrobat, the price of $[...] was too juicy to
    resist.
    Furthermore, the early reviews of this version suggested Nuance had
    released an improved product. I also expected that after 5 versions the
    software would be well tested.

    I wish I had waited another month before buying as I certainly would
    have looked for another alternative.

    The software runs crashes Firefox when opening a PDF, it also takes a
    long time to load up and then runs at snails pace when trying to edit a
    document.

    I have just WASTED $[...]!

    ... and Nuance must must be kidding you have to PAY MONEY TO REPORT A
    PROBLEM WITH THEIR PRODUCT???? I really must consider this 'scam' when
    dealing with my clients.

  • Nuance Slows CPU
    The product performed well when I first purchased it. No problem with installation. About three months into using it, I started noticing my system slowing down. After inspecting Windows Task Manager (I'm running Vista), NuanceWDS.exe was using between 49-53% of the CPU, at boot it would spike at over 80%. The interesting thing is I am not using the program. This is occurring while the program is idle/not running. NuanceWDS.exe runs as a backround task regardless of whether you are running the program. Until there is a fix I would not buy this program. The Support on the WEBSITE is a check box (a fixture to say they have support, but it supplies little or no utility). If not for the fact that it slows my computer down to a crawl when I'm not using the program; I would say it's been great. As it is though, I do not recommend buying the software, frankly it's a tool to allow me to do work, and it creating more problems than it's solving. ...more info
  • PDF Converter Pro 5.0 - Excellent Product!
    I purcahsed this product as a replacement for an aging installation of Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0 and have been more than satisfied with its capabilities and performance, especially in light of the $400 price differential. Highly recommended!!!...more info
  • Great Program!
    I would highly recommend this program, works well in converting and combining pdf documents from many file types!...more info
  • Not much added functionality
    New product with new bells and whistles but little added functionality. It actually does worse on multiple column products compared to their previous version.

  • Buggie Product... Beware!!
    The product never installed properly. Contacted techncal support to correct installation problems and after numumerous attempts the problem never got corrected. I will be attempting a full refund....more info
  • Good price and decent performance..
    Runs a litte rough in the edit function but after understanding the finer points of usage it is a great buy comparing to the Adobe price tag!...more info
