    How many people here use Quicken? Is it worth buying? Are there other programs which are better/comprable? Can I basically do the same with Quicken as I can with a well thought out Excel spreadsheet?

    I appreciate any comments or insight. For those of you who endorse Quicken, could you tell me why?

    Thanks.

    It works, it's easy, it has some advanced features like tracking investments but if you just want to keep a check register you can do the same thing with a spreadsheet.

    I highly recommend Quicken. Have been using it since 1991. I find it to be very intuitive just like the Mac. Quicken is just more like keeping your records on paper. Makes it simple to do all your financial record keeping. I do all of my banking online.

    i use only the very basics of the program (only the checkbook part) but the fact that it connects to my bank and gets all my transactions is worth it to me. i'd like to get some time and read about the other features but that's for a raining day when there's nothing else to do.
