    Surprisingly a quick and easy installation. Card arrived in a box with key code. I went to the site as listed in the card, entered the MS account info, entered key code, and done. I didn't want a subscription and this worked well for my wife's new Windows 8 laptop. BUT...one very annoying thing! It's a downloadable software and B&H site said free shipping (not BH's fault). So, naturally, I thought I was going to get an email with download link and key code within a few minutes or hours. Instead, I had to wait 4 days for the code to arrive in the mail. It came in a box with marketing stuff that ended up in the trash the moment I opened it. What a waste of resources and time. Another slight annoyance (though this will probably make me sound like a prima donna). Because the key code came in a card, I couldn't just copy and paste all the characters and had to type it in manually. I've read bad reviews about downloading and installing MS Office (which is why I wouldn't buy the subscription) but my wife needs Word and PPT. I expected the worst, and I was pleasantly surprised. So, I would recommend this install. But I could have done without the packaging and the wait.

    From a UI standpoint Office 2013 is rather clean, elegant and no-nonsense. It has the new design language the Microsoft uses, which slooks smart and purposeful.

    But the authorization process is pretty cumbersome. You basically have two keys to worry about:
    1. The installation key, which is printed on the card included with the box (sans CD)
    2. The authorization key, which you get directly from Microsoft only after you go through the authorization process. It may or may not be transparent to you, but in my case it was not possible to proceed without setting up a live.com e-mail for the trace. Within that "account" you set up, is your authorization key and the first thing I did was write it on the installation keycard, to avoid further mess later.

    It's Office 2013, it's not particularly innovative or new with regards to the features I'm interested in.

    It's a known quality, with a tetchy installation process. But if you need Office 2013 or components thereof, this is the only way to go about it.

                      Reasonable shipping time, easy download and install. Had to wait for the box to arrive with the product key before downloading but that's the price of paying less. I could have had instant download from B&H or anywhere else for an extra $[$], but I was waiting for my new computer to arrive anyway. Computer and Office arrived on the same day, perfect timing.

                                              Have to be a member of Microsoft club?? Thought I was, but can't find person to talk with. Evidently Microsoft does not support helping poor guys like me with instructions, etc on how to download product. Also, doesn't be any Number for support on this. Lots of other vendors that are willing for a small(?) fee to help do it.

                                              I do not like results.

                                                Surprisingly a quick and easy installation. Card arrived in a box with key code. I went to the site as listed in the card, entered the MS account info, entered key code, and done. I didn't want a subscription and this worked well for my wife's new Windows 8 laptop. BUT...one very annoying thing! It's a downloadable software and B&H site said free shipping (not BH's fault). So, naturally, I thought I was going to get an email with download link and key code within a few minutes or hours. Instead, I had to wait 4 days for the code to arrive in the mail. It came in a box with marketing stuff that ended up in the trash the moment I opened it. What a waste of resources and time. Another slight annoyance (though this will probably make me sound like a prima donna). Because the key code came in a card, I couldn't just copy and paste all the characters and had to type it in manually. I've read bad reviews about downloading and installing MS Office (which is why I wouldn't buy the subscription) but my wife needs Word and PPT. I expected the worst, and I was pleasantly surprised. So, I would recommend this install. But I could have done without the packaging and the wait.

                                                  I purchased MS Office for my son and daughter-in-law. We gave them a new computer for Christmas and I knew they would need MS Office. They use MS Office for work, school and pleasure. The product arrived in a timely manner with the greeting I requested.

                                                        Purchased a new computer with Windows 8 and without Office. Some reviews said that the install was hard and asked for the product key multiple times. This is not true. It was quick and simple to install. I haven't used all of the features in Excel and Word yet, but it looks like everything from the last version is there. Side note: Windows 8 is horrible...

                                                              From a UI standpoint Office 2013 is rather clean, elegant and no-nonsense. It has the new design language the Microsoft uses, which slooks smart and purposeful.

                                                              But the authorization process is pretty cumbersome. You basically have two keys to worry about:
                                                              1. The installation key, which is printed on the card included with the box (sans CD)
                                                              2. The authorization key, which you get directly from Microsoft only after you go through the authorization process. It may or may not be transparent to you, but in my case it was not possible to proceed without setting up a live.com e-mail for the trace. Within that "account" you set up, is your authorization key and the first thing I did was write it on the installation keycard, to avoid further mess later.

                                                              It's Office 2013, it's not particularly innovative or new with regards to the features I'm interested in.

                                                              It's a known quality, with a tetchy installation process. But if you need Office 2013 or components thereof, this is the only way to go about it.
