    "Decent, but very limited."

    February 03, 2010   |   By BigTwisty

    Version: Solve Elec 2.5

    Pros

    Easy to use, looks good when circuits are imported into iWork or Word. Easy to edit values.

    Cons

    Limited construction. Transistors disappear in AC mode. Capacitors disappear in DC mode. Does not support circuits with both ac and dc sources.

    Summary

    The fact that transistors are not available in AC mode is frustrating. It is understandable, since they require a DC source, but it wouldn't be THAT hard to make this compatible with combination AC/DC circuits. Superposition isn't that hard to code. Not being able to draw transistors and capacitors in the same diagram makes this program unsuitable for my needs.

    The product is decently put together, but it is far too limited to be useful. I was looking for something to quickly throw a circuit diagram together for my notes in electronics classes, but this software will not allow the basic things I would need.

    "Not good for high school students"

    December 28, 2009   |   By sctimrek

    Version: Solve Elec 2.5

    Pros

    Shows if circuit will function and provides information about the circuit.

    Cons

    Not obvious how to use the program and simple objects, like light bulbs, that students would put into a circuit aren't represented.

    Summary

    Good for more advanced users.

    "Excellent programme for solving many circuits"

    July 01, 2009   |   By cbeavis

    Version: Solve Elec 2.5

    Pros

    easy and intuitive to use.

    Cons

    Would help if components such as capacitors, Inductors could be used with dc applications, to investigate rise times etc.

    Summary

    Product used for quickly calculating and vuewing results of circuit changes. I particularly like the presentation of formulas for viewing under solutions.

    "A joy to use!"

    March 09, 2009   |   By bexleymike

    Version: Solve Elec 2.5

    Pros

    Accurately determines if circuit will function and provides worthwhile information concerning the circuit.

    Cons

    A little difficult to use at first. Not everything is intuitively easy to use. The use of switches is one that comes to mind as not being intuitively easy to use.

    Summary

    While some parts of the program are not intuitive, the instructions are clear on how to use the program, so it is a good idea to spend some time making yourself familiar with the program. A wonderful program to use for designing circuits!
