    Outlook 2016 can be a problem

    I loaded this on my Mac to replace Office 2011 for Mac. Word and Excel are nice to use and presentationally an improvement on 2011. PowerPoint yet to be tried. However, Outlook 2016 has been a nightmare with very slow running on a Mac with 8GB RAM. When searching the web for an answer, it seems there are no easy fixes for what is a known issue for quite a few purchasers. I have now had to revert to using Outlook 2011. For those who experience this issue, it makes the product a very poor value purchase. Microsoft really need to fix this; until then, I would recommend sticking with Office 2011.

    Response to prior review

    This is a one year subscription. If you do not renew after one year of course everything is going to stop working, because you're not paying for it. Do not buy an old version of Office which isn't supported, you will not be able to view recent documents from newer versions of Office. If you don't want a subscription, but Office for Mac 2016, Home & Student or Home & Business (includes Outlook). This is a great softer for people who have multiple computers in the household and/or iPads

    365 is fantastic because you always have the latest version.

    Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription service, which means if you buy it expires after one year. If that doesn't suit you then buy a full copy of Microsoft Office 2016. It is by no means a bad product, 2016 is in fact far better then the older versions and more aligns itself with the windows version of the product. The interface is far cleaner and there are none of the weird quirks found in 2008 and 2014.
