Initial reviews said product was horrible and nothing was as good as Quicken 2007 for Mac. When my bank no longer accepted querries from Quicken 2007 this forced me to Quicken Essentials. Every review I read was negative but I needed product accepted by my bank to pull down monthly statements. When I purchased from Staples, the box talked about a rebate from 2012. That was not encouraging. However, I loaded the product and initially was horrible. Tried to import my Quicken 07 data but error message said POWER PC software would not work on Mountain Lion Mac. I was ready to box up the software. I checked Quicken website and there was a later import application that does work on MAC OS 10.8 Mountain Lion. Once I loaded that app, ran the import things started coming together. Finally had to reload all passwords/pins for security that was good. The more I use Essentials the better I like it. I've not gotten to downloading of investment info yet.

I imported data from Quicken Windows 2010, but future scheduled transactions (mostly post-dated checks) became corrupted. Luckily, I didn't have many.
The differences are a bit more annoying and there are almost NO customization/preference settings, which is very different from Windows:
1. You can't customize whether to use the ENTER or TAB key to move to next field. Only TAB works now. I've used ENTER for 10+ years to move to next field; now ENTER saves and closes transaction. Really annoying!
2. On each scheduled transaction, you can no longer specify how many days in advance you want it to post to your register. You can globally select either 7, 30, or 90 days to see ALL scheduled transactions in your register (and to show the projected ending balance).
3. The new version expects that most transactions will be downloaded, not manually entered. I enter almost all my transactions manually, as either checks or EFTs. The worst part? Manual transactions begin by clicking a NEW icon or CTRL+N. But this line opens in the middle of your register, not at the end. And when you finish and press ENTER, it closes the transaction but you doesn't bring you to the next transaction entry. You have to click CTRL+N EVEN TIME YOU ENTER THE NEXT CHECK!!! THIS WILL BE THE WORST PART! Also, entry fields look very different and it's easy to put info in the wrong field. I'll probably get used to this.

BOTTOM LINE: I'll use this for 2012, but may do a free trial of another product and change next year.

            This is a great product when you're trying to figure out your taxes and need to add up various expenses over the past year. I actually find it kind of relaxing to have all my credit card receipts, various other receipts to go through so that I can track where all my money's gone over the past year. My accountant also finds the resulting paperwork hugely helpful when it comes down to doing my yearly taxes. And it's not just good for taxes. You're forced to see where all your money has gone and make adjustments for the next year.

                Intuit needs to put a bit more effort into this product. Overall, it is not as intuitive nor as satisfactory as previous Mac versions of Quicken.
                One disappointment was the awkward two step process of converting an older Quicken file to the format needed by Quicken Essentials for Mac. Flat out, it did not convert. This meant a fresh start in entering categories, etc. Downloading from financial Institutions was reasonably smooth, but did result in a locked password. Upon calling my bank, I learned that I had picked the wrong URL from a confusing list of very similar names. But we all know that error messages are not designed to solve problems.
