    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.

      Comments about Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 (Product Key):

      I am a second-year college student and one of my classes required me to use Microsoft Excel 2013. Since I have a MacBook Pro, I first purchased Parallels 9 and Windows 7. Installing Microsoft Office was very easy, just make sure to follow the directions. You are sent a product key that lets you download the Office suite. I was able to install Parallels 9, Windows 7, and MS Office 2013 in just 3-4 hours.

      Before buying this product, I used Office 2003 for Mac. Obviously this product is set up very differently. But this is just what I need, and I actually like the fully-Windows version of Office. I think sometimes you have to click too many buttons to find task or button you're looking for, but it's fairly easy to use. I'm definitely glad I have this product.

        Microsoft office 2013

        Comments about Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 (Product Key):

        There is not much to say about office 13.
        It's a updated version, it is easily worked with.
        I have not purchased a computer in a while so it was a disappointing realization that computers no longer come with even Word installed. I am not sure as to the reason for this other than maybe Microsoft just simply wants money.

              Not much to say here. Still the most inexpensive way to get Word/Excel/Powerpoint. Downloading the software wasn't an issue with me, nor was the activation process. The biggest advantage to me was that I don't have to purchase office again for the installed computer (new surface pro 3). I still run office 2003 on my desktop and don't plan on upgrading that one at all. I just needed a word processor and spreadsheet for the pro 3 and this was the most cost effective long term investment available.

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.

                                        As a college student, this version was exactly what I needed-a one time payment for an up to date version that stays on my computer(as apposed to other ones that expire after a year unless renewed). This was the cheapest price I found anywhere!!

                                                        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.
