    Corel Office X8 Home reviews

    WordPerfect Office X8 Home & Student Edition (Boxed) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WordPerfectX8 We have been using WordPerfect since it replaced Ashton Tate's MULTI MATE many eons ago. We love it, compared to MS Office, for its easy formatting of each individual letter, if we want to, and not a whole paragraph as in Office. It takes a while to get used to it, if you are new, but it is well worth it. Just a shame that the instruction book does not come with it anymore, but you can print it out, all 255 pages of it. The only thing we didn't like was that it took ages to download it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't Beat WordPerfect I'v been a user of Word Perfect going back to before Corel took over the product. Their upgrade costs from my older versions got me quite irritated. Your pricing for the upgrade to vdfsion X8 was a very pleasant surprise. Ted Kircher

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent program, a 'don't miss' choice. Nice little update to the WP suite. I use the word processor and very little of the other stuff. Been using WP from the mid 1980s . Have compared it to MS Word, have worked with MS Word as required in a couple of work situations, and there is no comparison. Word is a much lesser product. More difficult, less flexible, generally difficult, all when compared to WP, any version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WordPerfect and B&H...both good. I have used WordPerfect for years and just needed to upgrade to a newer version. Love it! Found the best deal from B&H on I ordered it. It shipped and arrive on time as promised. Have it installed and it is working great. Has lots of features and works wonderfully for me. I would recommend it and B&H as a good supplier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new and excellent edition of WordPerfect. I have used WordPerfect, in its many incarnations, for many years. I have always found it to be an excellent software suite. It provides me with all the features I need. This new edition is no exception. I am very pleased with it, so far. Most importantly this version works perfectly with Windows 10.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best word processor. WordPerfect is so much more user friendly than Microsoft Word. I get Word a part of a package but get disgusted with it every time I try it. My favorite part of WordPerfect is the reveal codes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Software ever. I have been using this for twenty years.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beneficial upgrade after struggling with my 2002 Corel Office product on Windows 10, purchased the X8 product and life is much easier- all programs run smoothly and load up fast. Did not try out the PDF option yet, but that should be helpful as well
