1-0 out of 5 stars agree - my computer won't even step down to 256 colors
This product shouldn't be on the market any more.

1-0 out of 5 stars Total Junk - Not worth 5 cents!
I don't know how to begin describing what a total waste of time and money this product is. First, the games require that you set your display to 256 colors. This is 1989 technology and it shows. The dictionary has at most maybe 100 words in it and it's just an plain text list that pops up, not even a real dictionary. The pronunciation guide is a dirt simple text paragraph about long and short vowel sounds, it has nothing to do with how to pronounce any single word.

This program is total trash. I'd be embarrassed to give it away. Either the producers at Simon & Schuster never even looked at this product or they don't care how they get your money. I'm astonished that any responsible manager would let something this awful onto the market bearing the company name. I'll sure never buy anything released by Simon & Schuster after this. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A Library At Home
When I first bought the product, I didn't think that it would come close to Britannica or Encarta. But when I first used it, I found it very resourceful and a very cool tool to use to gather information on one topic. Since I was a Greek Mythology expert, I tried finding information on Greek characters. And there it was! Some of the people and events that I didn't even learn was right on there! It also has cool features like media center, which allows you to choose to search for one kind of information, for instance: sound, music, photos, etc. The virtual library is the most easy way now to do whatever you want with the books on the shelves, and there's also a cute wizard librarian to read to you. In the research center you could make your own binders and collect all the information you found for your paper. You could search also by using keywords, full text, and title topic... When doing research on a country, it gives you full information from economy to climate, and also comes with maps of the country and large cities. It is the coolest reference work you can get for a price this low! Now thanks to this product everyday I have to spend three more hours in front of the computer (oh great, now I'll need glasses), I couldn't tear myself away! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Britannica 2004 versus Encarta 2004
I have bought both Encarta and Britannica for years (EB in printed edition too: 32 volumes, 32.000 sheets). This is my opinion in brief: Encarta is excellent in all aspects, but Britannica's authoritative text (sometimes outdated) makes interesting to buy both.
┬┐DVD or CD? Both editions are actually the same. You can copy them in your hard disk.
TEXT: Britannica is a superb encyclopedia in text (not in visual aid) since 1768 (you know: an article by Einstein and so on...). Text in electronic version differs from printed encyclopedia (very large articles have been shortened). Britannica claims that it has more items than Encarta, but this is a joke: articles like "Mexico" are only one (with a lot of subdivisions) in Encarta, while in Britannica subdivisions are unconnected, and you must "jump" from one subdivision to another, which is slow and very annoying, especially if you want to copy it in "WORD". Very often, the text is not updated.
In the other hand, Encarta's text is not bad at all. Most articles have the name of their contributors (professions, works...): They are not John Doe. You can find large fragments of literary works, literature guides, a lot of sidebars and thousands of quotations. "Encarta Africana" is included. The Pop-Up (double clicking a word) Dictionary and Thesaurus has sound for correct pronunciation (by the way, it can read aloud, with a robotic and ugly voice, a whole article). The "Translation Dictionaries" to Spanish, French, German and Italian must be improved, because they are minimal. It gives you a lot of "Internet links", even if you are not connected. With Britannica you must be "on-line" and it searches in an EB Web page.
In theory you can update Britannica over the Internet free for a year quarterly (4 times), but this does not work: You can not find new files. Encarta can be updated free EVERY WEEK with new articles and additions or corrections to the old ones (till October 2004). With Encarta updating really works. Technically, is amazing to see the changes in old items.
ATLAS Britannica has not a real atlas; only a worlds map whose maximum detail is the States of USA. Statistics are very poor. Encarta's Atlas is like another encyclopedia, with a great detail (1 cm/ 4 km all over the world) and 20 types of atlas presentations (statistical ones can be counted by dozens). If you look a geographical article (city, river...) you can see in a corner where it is placed and, with only a click, open the atlas. In articles of cities, if you are on-line, you can see in another corner the weather of this place in that moment. If it is a USA place, you can read the latest news.
MULTIMEDIA: They say that "serious" or "adult" readers do not care about "pictures"; that multimedia is only for kids. I do not agree, because I think that, sometimes, "A picture is worth a thousand words". Works of art, anatomy, historical maps, diagrams ... Encarta devastates Britannica with a lot of photos, paintings, drawings, charts & tables, animations, interactivities, videos, music and sounds, pictures, 2-D and 3-D virtual tours, 360-degrees views, timeline, games... It is not only the quantity and quality. It is the easy access you have to all the multimedia, and that text and multimedia are fully integrated. Britannica is not really multimedia. It has photos and videos, but they make the program slow and sluggish. They should edit an alternative version with only text, as they did with the first edition in 1995. It worked fast and easy in old computers.
INTERFACE AND PERFORMANCE: This is the worst side of Britannica. With Encarta you only have to type a word or the beginning of a word to see all the articles and multimedia that contain it. If Encarta does not find anything, it gives you automatically alternative spellings. Even if you write the name of a small village lost in any country, you see it in the atlas. If you need to copy text or pictures, the integration with Microsoft WORD is perfect. It has additional ways to find content, including subject or multimedia browsing, "related articles" and the standard A-Z method. The "Research Organizer" is very helpful too. Encarta's TEXT FONT is very clear (Britannica's...) and you can choose 3 sizes.
Navigating with Britannica is different. 2004 edition is better than 2003 one, but still it is disappointing. I will only give you an example: if you do not know the exact and correct spelling of a name or word, it does not help you with similar spellings (unless you open a window and fight with it). As I said before, the program's performance speed is very slow and sluggish, and it must be dramatically improved. To go "back and forward" you do not find any icon and you need to open a "menu".... One "pro" for Britannica: they say it works with Macintosh.
I repeat my modest piece of advice: Encarta is excellent in all aspects, but Britannica's authoritative text (sometimes outdated) make interesting to buy both.

2-0 out of 5 stars Updated?
I must agree it's hard to know if such a huge encyclopaedia is updated, but here's a personal example: Portugal (where I live) is said to have the Portuguese escudo as official currency. Well, I must say Portugal has the euro as currency since it was introduced in European Union, in January 2002. Not a great start for the 2004 edition!

2-0 out of 5 stars NOT UPDATED - completely outdated!
Do not waste your time and money with this product. It has much better interface than 2002 or 2003 version, but as compared with Encarta 2004 or Concise Britannica (2002) it is completely outdated!
Examples:
- Encarta 2004 and Concise Britannica say that Mobil and Exxon are former names (companies) and that the new company is named Exxon Mobil Corp. (since 1999). But Britannica 2004 (Deluxe) says Mobil and Exxon are still independent companies (the last date mentioned is 1972 for Exxon and 1988 for Mobil).

- Concise Britannica say that Merida, Mexico, had a population of 557,000 in 1990 (Encarta 2004: 705,000 in 2000). But Britannica 2004 (Deluxe) provides only an information for 1980(!) (i.e. 400,142)

It would be nice if someone from Britannica can explain how is it possible that Concise Britannica from 2002 is more updated than Britannica 2004. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A bad deal
Although nowhere in the packaging will you see this information, this is a British encyclopedia. It used British spellings. It has tons of information about voting districts in London and is missing basic information about the United States. I frankly felt defrauded by this product.

2-0 out of 5 stars I was "fascinated"!
When I first bought it, I thought it's a pretty good tool for school. However, I was very disappointed at this encyclopedia. It hardly have any information in it. Also, it has only a small amount of pictures, audios, etc. The other CDs that come with the main encyclopedia is not that good, too. I feel that the only thing helpful is The Hutchinson Educational Encyclopedia 2000. If I'm you, I wouldn't decide to buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rotten encyclopaedia
The encyclopaedia's content is absolutely rotten. Never mind the interface, multimedia, etc. What defines the quality of an encyclopaedia is its CONTENT! Twenty some thousand skimpy articles in World Book, wot? Both Encarta and Britannica have more articles that are of longer length.

World Book was created for infants and primary school students. If you're in 2ndary school or uni, this is nought but rubbish. I can't believe any self-respecting adult would give kudos to this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Encyclopedia, Mac version IS available
This is an astounding electronic encyclopedia that is worth every penny. It beats Britannica hand's down in feature parity, movies, images, and content, and since it's not made by...Microsoft, you're spared a lot of redirection to MS's websites when clicking on links to the Internet.... That platform's version is utterly stunning and I'm afraid is even better than the Window's version. Either way, you won't be disappointed with this fast, informative, nicely organized application that the application's codewarriors care enough to make a quality product. Apple the company apparently likes it as well because it's pre-installed on most new computers they sell.

I have yet to encounter a single bug, program crash, or "missing" DLL, and the company's attention to detail should be rewarded, if not praised. So if you're thinking of ordering something for your kids, a college student, even yourself, put this software at the top of your list. You won't regret it!
