5-0 out of 5 stars For those who like quality
The Encyclopedia Britannica has been around for centuries compiling articles. It's no wonder that it has a reputation for quality. I have to admit, the price of the Encyclopedia Encarta was enticing. What tipped the balance in favour of the Britannica was a book I read written by two folks, Shapiro and Varian, published by the Harvard Business School, and called "Information Rules." I'll let them do the talking:

"In 1992 Microsoft decided to get into the encyclopedia business. The company bought the rights to Funk & Wagnalls, a second-tier encyclopedia that had been reduced to supermarket sales by the time of the purchase. Microsoft used the Funk & Wagnalls content to create a CD... Britannica started to see its market erode and soon realized that it needed to develop an electronic publishing strategy... Everyone agrees that the quality of the product (Britannica) is high; PC Magazine gave it the top rating in its comparison of multimedia encyclopedias... ... . In any event, Microsoft has improved its product content and quality, but it suffices to say that it still doesn't parallel that of the Britannica.

I'm satisfied with my purchase, and I'm using it for my research in graduate school. It includes a bookmark feature for tracking research. It's timeline feature also fuels my interest in architecture and art, among others. If you're a history buff, then this is the perfect product. It's maps are current, and the statistics are right on, one idea of how accurate they are: Canada's new territory (Nunavut) is included in its maps. One of its shortfalls is on policy issues. While it has coverage on the all important Uruguay Round of the WTO in 1993, it has no mention of the agreement on intellectual property rights (TRIPS) that came with this agreement, there's no excuse for this. I tried looking up the H1-B visa issue, but there were no entries, nor was there any information on other U.S. visa issues, but then again, this is such a specific American issue, so can you blame it?

5-0 out of 5 stars Satisfying Product
Everyone knows that Britannica was the first publisher of encyclopedias. This product did not fail my expectation. I have use this many times to do research and project. One big plus over Microsofts Encarta is the articles. The articles is much more in depth and longer than Encarta.

Encarta users (like myself) will find Britannica to have a very different format. It is certainly less eye catching and lacks many of Microsoft's multimedia features. However, what it lacks in snazz, it makes up for in content. I like both Encarta and Britannica because of these differences, and I will continue to use both. As far as information is concerned, Britannica is the grand-daddy of encyclopedias. The content is identical to the company's online version, but for users concerned about downtime and slow downloads, the CD-ROM version is a life saver. Also, the offline version allows parents of young children to access the content without supervision and without installing Internet filters.

I recommand you buy this great product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid This Like Broccoli
Putting the merits of the content aside (though I tend to agree with other writers that the content is shallow as a coy pond), this product has a poorly conceived interface that works only intermittently. Couple this with the poorest support effort around, and you will be pulling your hair out every time the kids say "Daddy, the encyclopedia doesn't work again."

Most irritating of all is the [price]per call 900 number that Britannica uses for telephone support.

Save yorself the aggravation, avoid it!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars GOOD, BUT....
Undoubtly Brittanica is a very good encyclopedia, but today, in CD-ROM and DVD version, Encarta is much better... For Britannica fans or pre-owners.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excelent product, educating and user friendly
The Britannica CD's is one of the best of it's kind, and for the purpose of concise very updated and responsible information -without the need to tour in big books - it does the work on the best way. ... Read more
