Having ditched my Windows laptop (Blame Windows 8, not the laptop), I moved over to Mac. However, a lot of my documents were written as Word or Excel files, and I wanted to use them on my MacBook. This seemed like the obvious solution.

Let's just make it clear that you are not buying a CD - the box shows up just like a regular Office product would, but inside is a little card with a serial number and download instructions. You send your Mac to the website, download and enter your serial number, and the machine does everything. Really simple!

No compatibility issues to date - work done on machines running Windows comes across seamlessly. I am impressed, and also relieved!

I did not really want this but was forced to get it as Microsoft Office's presence is so all pervasive. I tried to get by with NeoOffice, OpenOffice and Pages but in the end had to give in to get full compatibility with the documents I was handling.

Downloading and installing this was really easy. The only minor issue I had with this came later when I replaced my hard disk. After doing that I needed to reactivate the package by entering the Product Key. This proved to be very simple as Amazon provides easy access via Your Account -> Your Games and Software Library.

Unfortunately, Apple's Pages word-processing program, although far superior to MS Word in usability, no longer supports mail merge and is a bit "iffy" with its styles, so I purchased this copy of Word to fill in the gaps.

MS Word is still the "standard", I have no idea why except there are few alternatives, it is still as cumbersome and unfriendly as ever but, once you have a few months experience, it does the job and does it quite well.

This download system is very good and saves going over to the mainland! It's a pity you have to buy the whole caboodle, it has used up most of my remaining hard drive, because I shall never return to the other Office programs, especially Outlook!

This review is about the purchase experience rather than the software, which after FINALLY installing it, I'm hoping will work pretty much like every other version of Office I've used.

Note that under this listing there are two options - 'Mac' and 'Mac Download'. I went for the £15 more expensive 'Mac' option as I expected it would include a disc version of the software (the listing after all says you need a DVD reader for it). But when it arrived, it's just a small cardboard sleeve with a smaller cardboard card on the inside with the 'product key' you'll need to, get this, DOWNLOAD the software. So I paid £15 more for a bit of cardboard as opposed to the 'download' version. Nice. This listing is not at all clear.

On top of that, the website I was directed to for the download didn't work for 3 days, so after hunting around an incredibly confusing Microsoft site for the correct contact details, wasting time on 2 different phone numbers and having online support remote into my mac only to tell me they couldn't figure out what was wrong, someone there finally just gave me a direct download link. Poor experience all around. Looking for a £15 refund now from either the seller or Amazon.

UPDATE: In fairness to the seller, they responded quickly and are refunding the difference.
