Looks like old packaging, does this mean it is only 20gb instead of the 1tb?

I had a chat with sales support, they said as the 20gb skydrive is no longer an option it should be the 1tb, not 100% sure if he speaks the truth!
can you upgrade this to 5 years?

The packaging is irrelevant. The Home Premium product is now simply called Home and the code will work just fine. You WILL get 1Tb OneDrive.
try and find 5 close friends/relatives to share this with and it'll be only £9 each.
It'll just add the standard 1TB now.
djdope

can you upgrade this to 5 years?


Yes. You can "stack" years.
My cats use two of the licenses so we get an extra 2tb of cloud storage for numerous tv boxsets and music for the household. I wouldn't worry about the packaging as "Skydrive" doesn't exist anymore either. It will be 1tb of OneDrivex5. Hot.

Could do with an upgrade from Office 2010

Not sure how the stacking works.. So if I buy 3 keys, do I enter one of the keys on each of the 5 machines I want to put the software on now then in 12 months when it comes up to renew I use the next one and so on. Or can you opt to use keys 2 and 3 as extra years on top of the 1 year license activated on the 5 machines?

​£9 a year per user is pricey??

a definite bargain as far as I am concerned. the latest office software for £9 per user per year.

Per user, assuming five people are going to share it out between themselves.

How many people are going to do that, do you think? You'll have far more common scenarios where it's a single user and so your maths does not apply.

Grow up and learn some manners towards OP. £45 is still expensive when you can get Office 2016 - forever - for £110 at Amazon when I looked the other week. This subscription model is for Microsoft's benefit, not for ours. You'd be a mug to get into that kind of payment cycle with them.

I wouldn't want to pay £110 for software that I'm unsure I'll still be using in a year.

I don't pay more than £25 for a year sub. I prefer it that way.

I currently sign up at 7.99 a month and have over 200GB of digital photos stored on onedrive.
If I purchase this how do I link the license to my account?
I assume I cancel current renewal and then input a key - is it as simple as that?

£110 is for as long as it’s supported so 10 years maximum = £11 per year per PC.
This is £9 per year per PC, includes the full Office Suite (Access, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher etc.) unlike the cut-down versions which lack a lot of those.
Plus you get access to upgrades and new applications over the lifetime of the subscription and you get OneDrive.

In other words they are very different products aimed at different usage models.
To dismiss either product because it doesn’t fit your personal usage model is myopic and ignorant.

so you pulled agharta on treating people with respect then describe people who can see the benefit of the model as mugs?

where's the respect there pal?​
The benefit is probably more for the OneDrive storage than the Office suite. As someone mentioned above, it's technically 5Tb (1tb per user). Also, you don't have to install Office on 5 seperate computers if you don't have them - just share the Office 'benefits' with 4 other people you know. For example, I have:

Me - 1 install + 1Tb OneDrive on Mac
Wife - 1 install + 1Tb OneDrive on PC laptop
Oldest Son - 1 install + 1Tb OneDrive on Mac
Youngest Son - No install + 1Tb OneDrive on PC tablet (Lenovo Miix)
Father in Law - No install + 1Tb OneDrive on iPad

office-watch.com/201…ee/

So I'm only using 3 actual Office installs, but we all get to use a terabyte of storage each. Everyone also gets 60 Skype world minutes each and a mobile app install each. That's a ton of uncompressed photo storage, plus lots of room for your music/videos/movies etc which can all stream from the app. For £45 it isn't bad!

1Tb of Google Drive alone is expensive ($9.99 per month - currently £7.70 PLUS bank fees as Google only bill in USD. So over £10 per month easily). Dropbox is £7.99 per month and iCloud £6.99 per month (this is all for 1Tb).

This deal works out at £3.75 per month for 5Tb of storage PLUS 5 Office installs, 5 mobile app installs and 60 monthly Skype World minutes. Not everyone may need it, but it's far from a rip-off.

Yes. Cancel your recurring payment in your Office 365 Dashboard and then select "Renew with an Office product key". Done.

I don't see it as being quite the same thing, but I take your point and apologise for any offence that I caused anyone.

I'll revise it to..:

This includes 5TB of cloud storage, which costs $600/year from Google or Apple.

Also you can't actually use Office 2016 'forever'. It will become outdated and will no longer be patched, and won't work well after a number of years.

No, no and no.

Per PC maybe 365 is £9, but you'd need five people to benefit from that and have them pay a share each which I'm fairly sure won't be the case for most people, as I said before.

Meanwhile, it's not £11 for the full version because whether it's still supported or not, it's still yours for life to use as long as you want. So it's £110 for er, forever.

So your maths is disingenuous. I'd suggest buying the full version of Office 2016 at the almost-always-superior price to this deal, getting yourself on Excel and doing the sums

Eh?

In my house we have four people, with two PCs and two laptops. That's four devices, and I would think quite common. In this case all four computers are covered by Office 365 Home Edition.

If there's just one PC, then you would typically buy Office 365 Personal.

Each device requires a licence, so if you have a PC and a laptop you need TWO licences. In this case, the Home Edition is going to be cheaper.
Heat from me! Just bought 2 as you get 5% extra off and you can load them on at the same time I've found to clock up your subscription. Even better than the £48 offer from Amazon in January.

Thanks captain obvious.
5 PCs across a typical family of 4 is not that much of a stretch and then you include extended family and 5 is easy.

You really think that Windows in 2027 will even run Office 2016? Judging from past behaviour don’t be surprised if it doesn’t.
There will be no more security updates and with Office being a popular target for hackers I’d rather you than me.

You mean the full version of Office Professional 2016 which costs over £300?
If you mean Home & Student then that’s very cut down and not comparable which is the point you are completely missing.
It’s the same with Car lease deals on here, some people can’t see to get their heads around the basics.

This is wrong, because
(a) you are NOT going to use it forever, all software has a finite lifespan.
(b) it's not five users, but five devices, and most households have multiple computers, the number of users is actually irrelevant.
(c) You don't get 5TB of cloud storage with Office 2016.

If you don't need the cloud storage, then at this price if you have three computers in your household or more this works out cheaper for a typical six-year-upgrade cycle. Although I suspect that most people with three or more computers will also use the cloud storage....

Isn't office 365 keyless. You subscribe and install the software from your account. It's also for use on up to 5 devices per subscription and not 5 users . You can share it but that's bending the rules
