"Google Earth is better"

September 13, 2010  |  By maddog1246

 |  Version: Virtual Earth 3D 1.1 beta

Pros

Cannot think of anything good to say about this product. It is really called Bing Earth.

Cons

Cannot do anything street level with this product as I can with Google Earth.

Summary

Don't waste your time or energy on this product.

"This product is probably no longer available"

April 29, 2010  |  By FORD45

 |  Version: Virtual Earth 3D 1.1 beta

Pros

???????????????

Cons

?????????????

Summary

I had this product on my last computer & liked it fairly well. Downloaded from this site today, and when it finished, it directed me to an MS site for finalization of the download. That site no longer exists, nor can you find the product on any of the MS search pages. So now I have the product taking up space on my computer, but it is not useable.

"Virtual Earth Sucks!!"

March 30, 2009  |  By Ollie_K

 |  Version: Virtual Earth 3D 1.1 beta

Pros

3D Graphics would be interesting if they would display.

Cons

Poorly designed, buggy, typical half-baked Microsoft product, even as a beta.

Summary

Don't bother, this puppy is not nearly ready for prime time. Try again in 2010. Stick with Google Earth. Far superior to this product.

"Safer than Google Earth on memory"

January 25, 2009  |  By Jonnyabc

 |  Version: Virtual Earth 3D 1.1 beta

Pros

1) Browser friendly
2) Integrated with Live Maps for easy switching between 2d and 3d
3) Birdseye View
4) 3d landscapes and buildings look relatively realistic to the real thing
5) Move tools are easy to use (especially with keyboard shortcuts)

Cons

1) Make sure your computer has been recently defragged before attempting to run
2) Have a relatively fast internet connection

Summary

When I tried out Google Earth, my computer was having nothing but problems. However, Virtual Earth requires no external program, only an up-to-date computer/browser.

Comparing it to Google Earth, it certainly does not have as many features. However, if it did, it would be a memory hog too. Nevertheless, VE is a great deal, considering it's free.

"Better quality than Google Earth!"

June 23, 2008  |  By bilkeyangel

 |  Version: Virtual Earth 3D 1.1 beta

Pros

I am please with the quality of Virtual Earth. I haven't learned all I can do in it yet. I get awe struck with each new screen so it will take me a while to get on to the other options.

Cons

I haven't seen the focus and clarity I would like in a satellite connection.
