Not much there

Pros: download directly from bank, has a register like windows versions
Cons: a true "lite" version, very few interface options, file conversion confusing
" As a long time Quicken user, I was happy to see that when I switched to using a Mac the familiar Quicken program would be available. Wrong! If I were Quicken programmers, I would be embarrassed to claim this product. I ended up buying a Windows netbook to do my banking on using Quicken 2011. I hope there is an upgrade soon. "

Love it!

Pros: ease of use, ease of transfer
Cons: not in warehouse
" I am a Quicken user since 1994 and was worried when i switched from a windows PC to Mac. I have most recently been using Quicken Premier 2010 and wondered how much functionality I would loose. I must say I lost almost no functionality and even gained corrected downloading of retirement accounts which had previously had to be done manually because of some transactions being mixed between accounts. I am very happy! "

Pros: it works on a mac.
Cons: it doesn't do much else.
" This software is essentially Quicken Lite. It looks like the Intuit programmers gave up about halfway through the process. I've used Quicken for years, and bought this version to sync with an upgrade to my Mac operating system. Unfortunately, it is almost useless. I deleted it from my computer after about 15 minutes when it was clear that basic functions were missing. Thank God for Costco's return policy! "
