"Much better than what the reviews here say"
Easy to use interface. I added and updated a dozen or so accounts in minutes. Clear presentation of account values and investment holdings
Trouble connecting with Dodge and Cox account (worked in Quicken 2008 for PC) as well as my wife's Vanguard IRA accounts (also worked in Quicken 2008 PC version)
I give it 3.5 to 4.0 stars
The reviews here with ratings of 1 are, in my opinion, unfair. I actually put off ordering Quicken Essentials for over a year because of all these negative reviews but after Quick 2008 for PC stopped connecting to my banks a few months ago I decided to give Essentials a try (Quicken 60-Day guarantee was a plus). Needless to say it does what I need it to do, it tracks all my investments, allows me to keep track of my various assets (properties, none brokerage investments, etc) as well as my bank accounts. A few of the auto download features are a little clunky but overall very positive experience.
