    I use QB for my sole proprietorship consulting business. It has easy to use categories for everything I usually do on paper, and it encourages me to enter income and expenses in a more timely way. The things it does not seem to easily allow are the habitual bad practices my shoe box approach promoted. I started using this product mid-year, so there was some catching up to do, but the program allowed me to record income, payments and expenses from past months relatively easily. On the negative side, the appearance of the many windows upon start up is a bit overwhelming but I expect these to decrease as I become more familiar with and customize the elements of the program.

    I tried this product and returned it; my comments.
    QuickBooks was installed on the iMac 1/20/2012 and a lot of time was spent becoming familiar with the product; your excellent QuickBooks manual was used to set up my company file including bank account, credit card, invoices, expense vouchers and sales receipts. During this exercise, I realized that QuickBooks has a lot more functionality than I need. After a while of use the company file could not be opened, even after quitting QuickBooks and rebooting the computer. So persistence prevailed and I again created a new company file and after a short time that file could no longer be opened either no matter what I tried.

      Comments about Intuit QuickBooks Pro 2012 (CD-ROM):

      I've been using QB for 7 years. It's pretty good for basic accounting but is not very customizable. It takes a long time to edit their templates so they don't look so hideous, and even when you're done they still put you in a box so you can't have everything you want. Intuit tries to nail you with extra costs for addons every way they can and their customer service isn't very good. Anyways...it's functional but leaves a lot to be desired.

          Our account recommended we upgrade from Qbooks 07 to 2012. We were hesistant because the former was working fine for us. The online banking portion of Quickbooks Pro 2012 paid for itself already in time saved. Excellent program. Wish they'd just make all versions multi-users (from different machines) but other than that it's great.

              I upgraded my QuickBooks Pro 2009 ONLY because my bank only supports the two previous builds. I've been using QB for years for each of my companies. When I worked IT I sold accounting and point of sale southwest
              Software. Preachtree WAS QB's only competition. Even then QB could be used by any body that could balance a checkbook. You had to be an accountant to use the competition. QB has only improved it's product. If you're debating if you should use QB online or out of a box, the box to me is always the best choice. Well worth it's one time payment.

                      If you're looking to cover all aspects of your business, this product is fine. If all you need is a program to track finances and write checks you're buying the wrong product. Unfortunately 10 years ago Quick Books fit the bill with their "Basic" program. To get the product to work now it takes all the bells and whistles - like going from a motorcycle to a cadillac. No question it's a good program, just too much info for us.

                      I've been using Quickbooks for 9yrs for my small business. I have always loved the ease of invoicing and reports.I'm not happy with the [$] a month charge to email invoices. I don't like a few other little changes they made but I'm sure I will adjust.

                        Had to update from QuickBooks 3.1 and 3.1 was stripped down and much easier to use. This product should have 2 levels of use, one basic and one advanced to be selected at startup. Most users will use the basic setup and advanced users will like the full version. Basic would suit my needs fully.

                              I love quickbooks in general, but I was forced into buying 2012Pro in order to continue my merchant services processing with intuit. Otherwise, 2009 was just as good. I guess the newer version will make the program run more smoothly, without the glitches I encountered often in 2009 after 2012 was released.

                                      I was using QuickBooks 2009 for my small 2 person consulting business. It worked fine and had everything I needed. I was recently forced to upgrade to 2012 as Intuit started eliminating basic online functionality with 2009 such as downloading bank statements.

                                      As far as I can tell, the 2012 has some fancier graphics and some new looks. Reminds me of the Microsoft Office upgrade from 2003 to 2007 and then 2010. Not really any huge improvements unless you are a power.

                                      I'm sure QuickBooks 2012 has some great enhancements, it's just wasted on my very small businees.

                                      B&H had the best QuickBooks 2012 price of the reputable companies. It took about 8 days for delivery with normal shipping.

                                          Product is great, but you really need an experienced person to help navigate through. If you are offered 30 days of free technical support, take it!
