Editors' review

Kingsoft's Office Suite Professional 2013 offers affordable compatibility with Microsoft Office. Building on Kingsoft's popular Office Suite Free, the Pro version adds a new tabbed interface, VBA macros, intuitive table and paragraph tools, and improved exporting. And, unlike the freeware, no pop-ups. Office Suite Professional bundles Writer, Spreadsheets, and Presentation. It runs in Windows XP to 8 and works best with at least 512MB of RAM and 1GB of free disk space.

We had several choices to make when installing Kingsoft Office Suite Pro, including associating it with Office formats like DOC and XLS and choosing from three interface styles: the new-for-2013 Elegant Black and Water Blue, and Classic, which has the familiar look of previous Office Suite releases. We have no faults with any of them: Both the new and old looks pack a lot of controls and features into the available space yet manage to do so without overwhelming the user; it's something they share with Microsoft's suite but not with some other would-be Office alternatives. Though not as extensive as Microsoft's options, Kingsoft's suite offers plenty of support, including a Help file, forums, and feedback tools.

With Microsoft Office alternatives, compatibility is the crucial factor, and Kingsoft's Office Suite tools excel in that department. We created, edited, and saved compatible documents in both Kingsoft and Microsoft's tools. Kingsoft's tools acquitted themselves well in looks and performance. Of course, Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013 isn't Microsoft Office; there are differences, and some entities require Office. But if you're looking for a productivity suite that goes head-to-head with Office in nearly every category except cost, try Kingsoft Office Suite Professional 2013.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Kingsoft Office Free 2013 9.1.0.4246. The trial version includes pop-ups.

    "immediately installs browser redirects"

    July 27, 2014   |   By umlando-2009

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    nothing yet - trying desperately to delete unwanted registry entries

    Cons

    brand new computer, first d/l software...think I'll try a new open office solution - bad choice! WPS immediately installs browser redirects - all my tabs open to trovi.com, and they are multiplying. Seriously. First download.

    Summary

    Stay away unless you like browser redirects. Try Apache OO instead - they don't mess with you.

    "great & free substitute for MS Office"

    July 26, 2014   |   By vetsense

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    familiar interface, easy to use, no problems working with documents saved in MS programs

    Cons

    None that I've found

    Summary

    I've used Kingsoft Office for several years on my laptops, while I maintained MS Office on my desktop, and have had no problems switching between the two and (although other reviews seem worried about it) I've had no problems, junk, viruses, or spyware from their product, in spite of it being from China, LOL. I don't know what's behind the name change......maybe it's like Nissan going back to their original name once they'd gained acceptance under the "international" name.

    "Best Microsoft Office clone around! <br />And it's free!"

    July 23, 2014   |   By pickycustomer

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    Perfect for home and school.

    Cons

    None found here.

    Summary

    If you need an office suite which is basically an MS Office clone, WPS Office Free is for you. WPS opens and saves projects to MS formats without any issues. WPS opens to a start screen which contains links to templates, an online help manual and tips on how the user can use WPS to its fullest. WPS has a small HDD footprint and uses little resources. WPS has a tabbed interface which makes switching between multiple projects extremely simple. Whether you are composing a letter, term paper, research paper, spreadsheets or a power point presentation WPS Free is absolutely ideal.

    I have done my best with every tool I can think of and have yet to find any spyware, malware, backdoor trojans or "any" form of virus in WPS Free. I ran all these tests because with WPS being from China I was, to say the least, a bit wary. Nothing found...no harm.

    Bottom line, you can't go wrong with WPS Free. I highly recommend using WPS Office Free. Just download, install and start using this light, yet powerful office suite.

    "Made in China : Beware"

    July 22, 2014   |   By narayan_v

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    It saves to docx,thus the file size in reduced. Nice clean and fresh feeling to interface.

    Cons

    Made in china, Can be subverted later or right upon install or updates. Make it a spying tool of Chinese hackers or worse the state. Just don't trust it enough.

    Saving to .doc format makes it unreadable in open office and ms office. So it will not work.

    Summary

    Install at your own risk and wisdom or lack thereoff
