    "Synchronization tool that didn't duplicate my calendar."

    October 7, 2014  |   By Mitess

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.50.2574

    Pros

    Synchronize everything. No need to add data manualy. Saves lots of time. Using between my PCs and my Galaxy. Have tried other tools, none of them worked clean without duplicates, since I have started using Sync2 I do not have any duplicates at all. Really appreciate this soft.

    Cons

    This field should be optional, because I don't have what to write here.

    "Excellent, does what you need it to do!"

    September 23, 2014  |   By Westcoaster50

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.50.2574

    Pros

    Easy install and setup
    No glitches....so far!
    Doesn't take up a lot of resources.

    Cons

    If you have a lot of items to sync it can take a while not unreasonable

    Summary

    Researched several products for syncing my Outlook Calender with my Google Calender. Sync2 seemed to work the best.

    "Beyond terrible"

    September 18, 2014  |   By dhbaird

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.50.2574

    Pros

    Some of the package works. Only one time it totally destroyed my contact list with 2500 duplicates, triplicates.

    Cons

    Operationally the biggest problem I had was it's failure to copy all the archived messages to the same folders on the main server. But that problem was nothing like the terrible experience I had lately.

    Had a catastrophic failure of the hard drive on the laptop. After trying to re-install the Sync 2 software I received an error message saying that I had to upgrade. All I wanted to do was reinstall the program I had already bought.

    Tried calling support. No answer. Emailed and they said that my "support" had run out and that I needed to upgrade and pay them for the program all over again. They said that if I had de-authorized the laptop it would be no problem. How do you do that with a hard drive crash? This policy is nothing less than hostage taking and amongst the worst customer support I have seen in a long time!

    Summary

    I have been a developer myself and beta tester for other developers for Windows apps since Windows 2. In 30 years of interacting with vendors and developers I have never been treated so coldly than by this company.

    Don't give them your $. Don't reward people for terrible customer relations or youi could be next!

    "total waste of time."

    September 1, 2014  |   By jachome

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.41.2438

    Pros

    none unless you are into wasting your time.

    Cons

    would not launch under windows 7.

    Summary

    i downloaded from cnet and from the vendor's site. neither would launch under windows 7. wish i could give it less than one star. i would give it negative stars (a black hole?) for wasting my time. that would be more accurate.

    "A disaster"

    June 7, 2014  |   By bevhoff10

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.41.2436

    Pros

    Nice idea, but does not work

    Cons

    I first got zillions of duplicates being produced in my calendar. Tried resetting the program and it wouldn't let me. After trying to reset the program, it wiped out my calendar, which I have only partially managed to recreate. After buying Sunc2, I found out that the program is not compatible with MS Office 2013 IMAP configuration, and that only POP3 and Exchange are supported. I use IMAP! I then asked for a refund, less than 24 hours after purchasing Sync2, and was told that they are sorry but no refund.

    Summary

    Does not work. Wiped out my calendar. Bad support.

    "Excellent chat service"

    May 30, 2014  |   By NolanEH

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.41.2436

    Pros

    Excellent chat service - much better than I have received anywhere else. I am presently on the Trial version of Sync2 but in view of this experience I will very probably buy the full version.

    Cons

    Haven't noticed.

    "Doesnt work for heavy users"

    May 22, 2014  |   By winthrop1027

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.41.2436

    Pros

    for very basic outlook setups and non power users may sync nicely

    Cons

    Arbitrarily made many changes to my contacts. Doubled up my notes field dozens of times. Still has bugs. Support asked me to pay to determine if there was a problem and claimed if it could not be fixed they would refund my money. No fix an refused refund! joke. Proceed with caution if you are a heavy outlook user and use all the fields like date modified and notes.

    Summary

    Try something different like companionlink.

    Updated on May 28, 2014

    Before buying, I was told if they couldn't repair they would refund. After failing they offered a refund if I signed this! you sue and even win!!

    "Worthless product"

    May 7, 2014  |   By Alexoo89

    Version: Sync2 for Outlook 2.41.2436

    Pros

    After the last update the program has become worthless. Synchronisation fails and the program uses more than 50% of the processor and slows down the whole computer. Unfortunate, because before the update it worked pretty well.

    Cons

    Possible to synchronise more calendars, contacts and tasks.

    Summary

    Slows down the whole computer
    Lot of bugs

    Pros

    Very good customer service. Sales and support representatives worked side by side to help me installing Sync2 to my small business IT environment. We are very happy about this software.

    Cons

    It would be nice to sync with outlook.com
