Customer Reviews:

  • Easy set up, easy to use.
    I was so happy to see that this was loaded on my system quickly and I could start entering my personal information quickly with "help" queues to assist me when I got stuck. If I did my banking on line, it would have been even easier to keep up with my record keeping but, once my bills are scheduled, the system reminds me when they are do so my budget and records can be updated when needed....more info
  • No trouble after 6 weeks
    The product installed easily, and has been running nicely for 6 weeks. I've had no crashes or other difficulties.
    The one thing that I wish it could do is download data from Canadian financial institutions....US versions only work with US banks, and Canadian versions only work with Canadian banks. (Obviously, you can manually enter anything you want...it just won't gather the data for you on-line)...more info
  • Don't know if it's good or not
    never got Quicken, returned to you as undeliverable and now it is out of stock...more info
  • Major Disappointment - Don't Buy
    I have never used Quicken before, but heard generally good review from friends and coworkers. I used other Intuit software, like TurboTax, and have been reasonably satisfied with it. I received an e-mail with an offer too good to pass up - Quicken 2009 Deluxe plus WillMaker Plus 2009, all for only $[...]. I was thinking about buy both any way. Now that I played with Quicken 2009 Deluxe for several days (installed WillMaker Plus 2009, but haven't used it yet), I can see why Intuit was so eager to dump Quicken. I hope WillMaker Plus 2009 will turn out to be worth $[...]. Quicken 2009 Deluxe really disappointed (even shocked) me with poor and unintuitive user interface which I thought was their strength. I am a software engineering manager with 20 years of experience. I would be embarrassed if my team produced crap like this. Yes, I have seen worse, but it is puzzling that this product passed their usability test. There are functional flaws as well. Downloading transactions produces net balance that is completely out of whack with current balance. I was hoping that it would download transactions for my mortgage account, but it does not. Only option I see is online payment via Quicken. I don't need that. I have automatic payment set up. For checking account, it shows transactions only in chronological order (oldest at the top. most recent at the bottom). Shockingly, there is no option to list in reverse chronological order. I understand that the default be in chronological order to emulate physical checkbook register. But no option to reverse the order?? That is stupid. In many ways, it typifies their limited way of thinking in designing and implementing this product. It just doesn't have the feel of well-thought-out software product. Options/buttons are not where you expect to find them. Too many bells and whistles scattered all over without coherent thinking. They should focus on making the basics work properly, before adding bells and whistles. Avoid this product. ...more info
  • Quicken 2009 is SLOW SLOW SLOW
    I have been using quicken since 1996 and have upgraded with every other version. It has been good...up 'till now. It is so slow and consumes so much computer resource that it is frustrating and has me considering changing. As I move my mouse across the screen it will pause every couple inches of movement for about 5 seconds. A Horrible experience! As stated elsewhere tech support is virtually non-existant....more info
  • "Upgrades" cost as much as new product
    Intuit has a nice little of way of forcing you to "upgrade" every 2 years. Their definition of upgrade is you buy an new version. No discount for existing customers. If you like getting shaken down every 2 years go for it. ...more info
  • Poor reviews here not substantiated by my experience
    I have used Quicken since the DOS days back in 1988. I have a 20 MB Quicken data file covering my transactions from the beginning. Quicken 2006 had been doing everything I wanted, but the impending loss of on-line downloading had forced me to upgrade, albiet somewhat reluctantly after reading the reviews here.
    I am running a Socket 939 AMD system with Windows XP SP3. Before I installed the 2009 version, I validated and "supervalidated" my Quicken 2006 data file (search Google for the Intuit forums to describe how to do this.) I then installed the 2009 version, let it look for updates, and it installed to 2009 Deluxe Release R 4. It then asked to convert my 2006 file, which of I allowed. Quicken then opened. No errors or problems with the initial install Overall, there are some cosmetic differences, but everything else appeared there. There are some tabs to the right of the screen that seemed more like ads for other things, but you can close them and they stay closed. I tried an on-line update: two credit cards did just fine (but one downloaded 186 transactions that I already had so I had to delete them all.) Subsequent credit card downloads have run without problems. Three of my four Mutual Fund Families (Vanguard and 2 different Fidelity registrations) downloaded just fine - my 2 Columbia Funds would not. After a phone call to the number that Quicken provided on-screen, Columbia told me I needed to use my SS number as an User ID, and subsequent downloads have worked. Mutual fund and Stock Quote prices update without problems, my reports work fine, and everything is back to normal. Responding to memory usage comments: qw.exe runs my 20 Mb file on 62 Mb of RAM. The account list is not as easy to edit as it was before - a minor point since I don't edit them very often. I can't comment on BillPay or Intuit phone support - don't use them. Files open and close quickly - none of the reported slowness that was reported here. Overall, a pretty typical upgrade and I'm still happy with this software. Maybe I'm happy because I'm working with Release 4 - but I usually wait several months after software is released to install it....more info
  • Very Very Slow on Vista
    I've been using Quicken for the past 18 years or so. I like the product and buy it every 1-3 years. The performance of this version is noticeably slow on a Windows Vista (2.2 Ghz dual core, 2Gb ram) machine. Holy cripes, what could they have possibly done to make each operation so slow. Even the smallest bit of data entry causes the screen to redraw for a couple of seconds. This is really a DOG version of Quicken; do not purchase or upgrade....more info
  • Back up your Quicken files before upgrading!!!
    I foolishly decided to upgrade my 2007 version of Quicken to 2009 after being prompted by Quicken to do so. I figured the new version would potentially offer some improvements from the 2007 version, and specifically I was hoping that it would download my Vanguard ROTH IRA information correctly since my existing version never could tell the difference between a stock purchase and a cash transaction...

    I am fanatical about backing up my data, and so I have several copies of my Quicken file that are on an external drive, as well as one uploaded to my online data cache in case of a fire. Without these backups, installing Quicken 2009 would have ended in tragedy.

    Immediately after going through the update installation and first running the program, I knew there was a real issue. Almost all of my data was jumbled, with a total loss of historical data (including uploaded images of bank statements, canceled checks, etc). The program was sluggish, and when I ran the download function, nothing but my bank transactions and one of my credit cards downloaded. I double checked passwords and they were correct. The download failed again and every subsequent attempt I made failed as well.

    I decided to start with a clean slate and deleted all Quicken files and registry entries, rebooted, and ran the installer again. This time the program did convert my old data file correctly and my historical data was intact.

    However, the program still doesn't import my ROTH IRA transactions correctly, and the new layout is very poorly designed and frustrating to use. I use QuickBooks non-profit at work every day, and the differences between Quicken and their professional software seem to increase with ever permutation of Quicken. They have gone for a reductionist philosophy of design, and my making everything simplistic, have further eroded my ability to easily generate reports, track spending across categories, etc...

    Overall this is an unnecessary update that includes nothing of substantial value. Worse, the new interface is poor and I find myself wishing for my 2007 version which I am seriously considering re-installing. Issues with the corruption of my data file suggest that the program has major bugs. I cannot recommend the program to anyone except those who are forced to upgrade (Users of 2006 and older versions of Quicken). If you do decided to upgrade, I strongly recommend you back up your data file to an external location before making the upgrade in case Quicken 2009 eats your data file. I also advise you to do an uninstall of the older version before installing the new version. ...more info
  • Quicken 2009 is slow and unstable
    Quicken Home & Business 2009

    I have used almost every version of quicken now for more than 15 years. I have never been so displeased as I am with version 2009. I am running on a Dell XPS 1330 laptop with more than 4 gig of memory and Quicken is unbearably slow when adding new transactions. I have been even more disappointed by the total absence of effective support. The support agents will tell you that your data file is corrupt, named improperly, not validated, or just too big. Nonsense! Quicken 2009 has simply veered off it's long standing path as one of the most well conceived and implimented applications every made. Now, bloated with gimmicks and advertisement monitoring, Intuit subjects us to arduous sessions of what should be, and have always been simple tasks.

    Intuit, please bring back my old Quicken. ...more info
  • No problems with upgrade
    My upgrade (download from Quicken) from 2006 deluxe to 2009 deluxe could not have gone smoother. I read all the reviews but took a chance based on the few who reported no problems. I'm running Windows XP Media Edition with 4 gig of ram. The upgrade was quick and painless. It read all my old files and there were no problems connecting with or downloading files from my bank. Updating and reconciling were without error. And contrary to what others have said, the program runs just as fast as before. I've been using quicken for 15 years and didn't really want to change so I took a chance and I'm glad I didn't listen to all the negative reviews. Maybe I just got lucky. I only gave 4 stars because I agree with everyone else that I should not have to upgrade every three years, the changes are minimal and not worth the money. However, the ability to connect to the bank and reconcile on the fly is the most important feature for me....more info
  • A great way to keep your finances organized.
    I have been using Quicken since their version 2 or 3, which was given to me free by my bank. Since then I have been upgrading to a new version every year when I buy Turbotax because with turbotax [...], the new version is not very expensive. If you have never used Quicken, definitely get Quicken. There aren't too many features to justify an upgrade, but if you are like me who puts in all my financial data in Quicken, I think it's best to say current with the versions. ...more info
  • Worst piece of bloatware I've ever used
    Quicken 2009 is the worst piece of bloatware I've ever used. I recently "upgraded" from Quicken 2006 and can't believe how unusable this software it is. The same data file now causes Quicken to use a 1 GB memory footprint. This is NOT the recommended amount of memory -- it's the actual amount that this application uses while running.

    Not even Firefox with 30 tabs and complex applications uses this much memory.

    The old version of Quicken used 35 MB of RAM for the same data. This version uses 30x that -- it uses so much RAM that you CAN'T USE IT!

    My computer, which is brand new, has 4 GB of RAM can't run Quicken 2009 with my data file. (I've got about 10 years worth of data.)

    Intuit's tech support is beyond useless. They have no clue and keep telling me my computer doesn't have enough RAM.

    STAY AWAY from this turd of a program. ...more info
  • help with managing money
    Quicken Deluxe 2009 has everything i wanted an more to help me manage my finances. It can track my spending and let me know exactly where every penny went. It can tell me when my bills are comming due and i can even set it up so that it automaticly pays it for me! I'm so glad i found this program. It works great for me and if you need help managing your finances like i did i highly reccomend Quicken Deluxe 2009....more info
  • Worthwhile upgrade from Quicken 2002
    Yes, my version was very old, so when I could get Quicken Deluxe 2009 + Turbotax Deluxe 2008 from Amazon for only $5 more than Turbotax alone, I decided it was time to upgrade, even though my old Quicken still worked fine.

    The new one installed with no problems and upgraded my existing Quicken records (with over 10 years of history) quickly and flawlessly.

    I really haven't explored too many of the new features, so I'm not sure they are worth the upgrade alone. The user interface is somewhat busier now, but I do like the way it groups types of accounts together in the account bar on the left side of the screen (customizable of course) and shows your net worth based on your account balances, so in that respect it is more useful.

    Basically, if you are upgrading from an older unsupported version like I was, and you can do the upgrade for a reasonabl price (I'd say $20 or less) then it is probably worth it. Consider it money well spent to renew your support contract.

    If your current Quicken is less than three years old, or it would cost you more than $20 to upgrade, I don't think I'd bother....more info
  • Upgraded with no problems
    With just a few weeks until my Quicken 2006 expired, I knew I had to make a decision soon. I've been using Quicken for ten years now and usually upgrade without hesitation but the large number of negative reviews gave me cause for concern. Most of the negative reviews centered on bugs and glitches, but these were from last year. So when I saw it on sale and noticed some recent favorable reviews, I went for it. Successfully upgraded without any issues. It imported and converted by back-up file without losing any of my data. After trying it out, I prefer the new "tabbed" interface and didn't notice any slowdown in performance. Another solid Quicken product.
    note: loss of star is because I was once again forced to upgrade by Intuit

  • Installation Problem; Customer Support Limited
    I have used Intuit's Quicken for many years and have considered Intuit to be one of the best software companies around. However, I was not completely satisfied with my Quicken Deluxe 2009 experience. First of all, since 2007, Quicken has not had a Basic Edition for around $30. I don't need a Deluxe Edition for around $50. That is why I didn't upgrade in 2008, but had no choice in 2009 if I was going to upgrade at all.

    When I installed Quicken 2009, the program would not run. The Quicken logo flashed on the screen and disappeared. I restarted and reinstalled Quicken. I had the same problem, so I checked what support options I had, as I had never had to contact Intuit support before. I was disappointed, to say the least, that Intuit does not offer free telephone support, but warns of a $25.00 fee. Moreover, Intuit calls you back; you cannot call in directly to get a support agent.

    So I had to settle for Chat support. I did get the problem resolved, but it took thirty minutes, whereas it would have taken about ten minutes if I had been able to talk to a live person on the phone. It turned out that I did not have the right mapi32.dll. The Chat support agent did pick up this problem pretty quickly, and once the new DLL was installed, Quicken worked. The mapi32.dll problem may not have been Quicken's fault, but I first spent five minutes trying to find troubleshooting help on the Intuit web site, and this solution never came up. I had previously thought that Intuit's help information was the best in the industry.

    My opinion of Intuit has moderated from 5 stars to 3 stars. Quicken is still probably the best such program around, but 2009 may not be as trouble free as it has been for me over the last ten-plus years.

  • I HATE this product version
    I was forced to "upgrade" because Quicken "In an ongoing effort to provide reliable high-quality products and services, Intuit periodically retires older versions of Quicken" Right.
    This is the most unstable,non-intuitive,slow, buggy,unusable piece of work I have seen. The bad part is I had no choice but to change. I will be looking for an alternative.

  • No problem whatsoever
    I've used Quicken for years, my most recent version being Quicken 2006 Basic. I started getting warnings that I will no longer be able to download transactions unless I updated so I looked into Quicken 2009. I was a little skeptical after reading reviews of the product but decided to go for it anyway. I have no regrets. The program installed flawlessly and automatically updated to the latest version. It brought in my old Quicken files without any errors and I was up and running in no time. The layout takes some getting used to; I get a little lost sometimes. But overall, I like it....more info
  • Terrible screen redrawing/flashing
    Quicken 2009 (version R5) has a terrible problem with redrawing its panes after its has been minimized or covered by another window.

    Sometimes it only takes 1-2 seconds, but other times it goes on flashing for 5-15 seconds! Ouch, my eyes!

    Even worse, Quicken is causing my *entire* Windows desktop to redraw itself (they call ::InvalidateRect(hwnd=NULL) which is a big no-no).

    Quicken 2006 didn't have this problem, but Intuit forced me to upgrade as of 4/30/2009. Unfortunately, these basic basic problems overshadow potentially cool new features. For example, I notice the graphs look much better -- when they stop flashing.

    Very disappointing. 3 years of development, and this is the best you can do, Intuit? 3 years!

  • Forced to upgrade to this horrible bug-ridden program
    Quicken's refusal to "support" earlier versions of its software made those versions obsolete and obligated us to upgrade to their Quicken 2009 software and it's atrocious.

    Caveat emptor: Rather than waste your money upgrading to the Quicken 2009, purchase a better rated money management software....more info
  • 15-year user is no longer happy with Quicken
    I began using Quicken in 1994 and have entered every single financial transaction of mine since then. I was recently forced by Quicken to give up Quicken 2006 Basic since they would no longer allow me to download stock quotes. Quicken 2006 Basic was a great program and I hated to see it go, but was hopeful 2009 Deluxe would be even better. Boy was I wrong.

    In short, the interface is so convoluted and complicated that navigating around is not as simple as it used to be. There's all sorts of buttons, drop-down menus, etc. that I'm having trouble grasping my big financial picture. Isn't that the point of Quicken in the first place? I'm not a new user to this version, either. I have used it for many months now and I'm still trying to find my way around the program. It's so irritating!

    It's painfully obvious that Quicken simply changed things around to call it "new" and make you buy the latest version of their software. But who can blame them -- car manufacturers do nearly the same thing. I have failed to see any new & helpful features in 2009 compared to 2006 besides a poorer user interface. After upgrading versions of Quicken for 15 years and being happy with each new version, going from 2006 to 2009 was truly the biggest Quicken letdown I've ever experienced. But like a brainless lemming, I will continue to use it hoping that Quicken will come out with something better in 2011 when they force me to upgrade again.

    This 15-year Quicken veteran recommends looking elsewhere for a money management program....more info
  • Total Disaster
    I've been using Quicken for about ten years. I have never been "in love" with it. Almost none of the intrusive bells and whistles are useful to me. Much of the design and organization is, in my opinion, poorly conceived.

    Still, I've stuck with it. I managed to get it set up (with a fair degree of effort) to the point where it would automatically download most of my credit card transactions, and the reconciliation feature works.

    You have to upgrade every three years in order to continue to get the automatic download feature, so I paid my money and downloaded Quicken Deluxe 2009. It seemed to autoinstall over my Quicken 2006 just fine. But when I tried to use it, the trouble started.

    Initially, it would not open my data files at all, stating that I did not have "permission" to open the file. So I had to right click the specific file and use Vista's "open as administrator" feature.

    It then converted my file -- destroying, in the process, almost all of my historical data. Good luck doing your taxes! I do have hard copies of my bank statements, thank heaven, but my credit card statements only go back six months online. I also have backups of my Quicken files -- trouble is, I don't have a program that will run them anymore, since Quicken 2009 deleted Quicken 2006.

    And, oh boy, if you want a lesson in frustration, just try to get any customer support WHATSOEVER from Intuit. You get mazes of unhelpful computer page links if you try it online, and mazes of interconnected automated voice messages on the telephone.

    And the look of the new Quicken 2009 screen is horrible, even if it worked. Giant fat tabs, as if they had decided to dumb the old version down from 14-year-old to 8-year-old. Every time I have upgraded Quicken, the new version was worse than the one before -- almost all the "new features" are worthless while the useful features are buried and hard to find.

    I am utterly disgusted. I assume that, if I want to spend many hours of hard work, I could eventually get Quicken 2009 working on my computer, but I don't want to spend hour after frustrating hour of hard work just to get a personal accounting program working on my computer.

    This is the last straw. I'm going to try a trial version of some other software, starting with MS Money, and see if it can convert my old data files. If not, I'm giving up and going back to pen and paper!

    In short, Quicken 2009 is significantly worse than nothing....more info
  • Works just fine
    My Quicken 2006 was going to be deactivated by April 2009 so I had to get a newer version.

No problem whatsoever !...more info
  • Don't Use it, even if it's free! I gave it one star it didn;t deserve.
    Quicken Deluxe 2009 After being a satisfied user of Quicken Deluxe 2000, I had to order the new version for my new Windows Vista 64 computer. Boy, what a disappointment! It suddenly throws up strange balances for no reason. After the third reinstall in a week, I decided enough was enough! Also, try to contact them. It's a joke! I should have believed all the poor reviews before I bought. I just couldn't believe it's as bad as it is. What has happened to Quicken?
    Hey, it's me again. I finally figured it out, no thanks to Quicken help.
