Reading articles from the past and using the photos and maps and the internet to compare changes over the years keep me occupied for hours on end.
Also, love to read all the old advertisements and even look up the companies to see if they are still in business and how they have changed.
I installed the product to my hard drive and it took a very long time, but I would load a DVD and then check back later and then enter the next when indicated. It probably took about 8 hours total.

A tremendous gift of knowledge at a bargain!

Pros

      Best Uses

        This allows all the DVD ROMS to be dumped onto your hard drive at install, uploading of further years for additional charge (up to 2013) currently.
        The Mac App 1.66 build 1251 runs fast in Yosemite and is awesome on my new iMac5K but still ran OK on much older older laptop, check your specs.
        I can search for a person or topic in all the issues from 1888 to Dec 2013
        now with one button push. An amazing resource at this price. A must have for any home containing at least one curious brain.
        Install content in the shared user folder on a mac so all users on your home computer can access content.
        At this price this is really a gift to the world of the years of scientific and educational endeavour by the worlds explorers.
        Thank you National Geographic for this awesome contribution!

        Nat Geo Complete Historical Review so-so

        By Walter the Adventurer

        from Decatur, IL

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Great scenes
        • Historical
        • Includes All

        Cons

        • Correct instructions
        • Difficult
        • Open All The Way
        • Slow

        Best Uses

          I probably wouldn't buy this again as I have not opened it since the day I got it. But mother-in-law might take to it as she loves Nat Geo. And this historical data is a million times easier to store than the magazines themselves. One thing I found out is it will not work will unless opened all the way up. I will check it out again and see if I like it better.

          Empty terabytes

          By Father Grandpa

          from Sparta, TN

          Verified Buyer

          Very disappointed. I have terabytes of storage space and would love to transfer all these CDs to online storage but can't do that. This should be a no-brainer option given the current state of our technology.

          Pros

          • Do Not Need Library
          • Easy to install software
          • EXCELLENT RESOURCE
          • Great graphics
          • Saves space

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Read Old Editions
            • Research For Children

            The greatest thing is that I no longer feel a need to keep past editions of the magazine & can pass them along to others.

              • teaching tool

              I am incredibly impressed with this product. First time I saw it I wanted to buy it. I love that all the magazine issues are so readily available in such a compact and comprehensible way. I love how much paper this product saves and allows for an organized and minimal storage. No more piles of dusty magazines laying around! I am very surprised that other magazines aren't following suit. This idea is just brilliant.

              Pros

                Best Uses

                • Research

                Simple look up on a computer -- who wants to go through over a hundred years of magazines??? It is nice to have the magazines in any case, but for research, this can be beat.

                Ok but a bit clunky

                By Coldfoot

                from Fairbanks, AK

                Verified Buyer

                Should have an on-demand update option that an owner can select which years they want and have them burned to an update disc. Or, with all the cheap terabyte harddrives around, have an install all option on to hard disc with update subscription.

                  • Historians Dream
                  • Personal Exploration

                  I tutor teenagers who struggle to make it in school. I have been a Learning Coach for 20+ years and no longer have to figure out where I need to stack my NatGeo magazines. My "kids" use it regularly during our sessions. Best product I ever purchased for my tutoring business and just for me as well!
