Quicken: Still the Best for Budgeting – Kiplinger
February 2011 by Joan Goldwasser
“Quicken’s Premier edition offers a robust investment section, a feature that is not available in free budgeting and money-management programs … It lets you track your portfolio’s recent and historical performance and measure it against the market as a whole and relevant benchmarks. You can view your asset allocation, compare it with model portfolios and see how to rebalance to reach recommended allocations.” Read more

Quicken 2011 offers new features, better UI – CNET
October 14, 2010 by Jasmine France
“Financial software might not be the type of thing to make your knees go weak, but a good program is a control freak’s dream come true. Such is the case with Intuit’s latest offering in the form of Quicken 2011. The time and work required by the user overall is also vastly reduced, thanks to the fact that the program can now automatically download data from more than 12,000 banks, brokerages, and loans.”

Quicken 2011 review: financial paradise by the dashboard – WalletPop
October 14, 2010 by Josh Smith
“Getting started with Quicken 2011 is fast. You can complete account linking in about 10 minutes, and with the revamped dashboard and the inclusion of spending, monthly bills and spending goals you can keep on top of the day-to-day items in just a few minutes. The result is a desktop personal finance tool that looks like a website yet retains the benefits of an offline personal finance tool that many Quicken users want.”
