I posted a blog about QuickBooks products a little while ago. It is a well known fact that QuickBooks products are superb for small businesses. They are so easy to use, understand and manage.  I like the QuickBooks Online version especially, since it is so technoglogically friendly, doesn't require software installation, and you can access it anytime anywhere. PCMag reviews this product highly as well.  See this review here: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2363703,00.asp.   As for the QuickBooks Pro version, the reviews on Amazon can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Intuit-Inc-416966-QuickBooks-2012/dp/B005FIWUMS. It seems to me that many reviews on Amazon are not so positive. Many of these reviews are from frustrated customers not getting help from customer service or because the software did not install properly.  This is due to human error.  The software does work, as long as the person operating it can understand it.  Of the positive reviews, I would say that people generally like the product and it works for them.  It is all a matter of opinion, but for me I would recommend the QuickBooks Online version since there are no hassles with installation.
