Pros

  • Ability to insert online data, API, free

Cons

  • Doesn't have all of Excel's advanced features

Bottom Line

It lacks some of Excel's more high-end functionality and features, but EditGrid is a useful online spreadsheet application. And it's free. What have you got to lose?

Would you buy this?

EditGrid, an online spreadsheet service, might convince you that Microsoft's Excel isn't the best spreadsheet product for all jobs.

EditGrid, which offers a free Personal Edition (as well as paid subscription and server editions), delivers more and less than Excel does.

Like Google Spreadsheets and Zoho Spreadsheets, EditGrid lets you collaborate with others in real time, and then share the results easily. A handy chat capability lets you talk to collaborators while you work.

To use EditGrid , you need a broadband internet connection and a Web browser that supports JavaScript (as most do). After signing up for a free account, you can upload up to 2GB (8GB in the paid version) of existing spreadsheet files created in Excel, OpenDocument or Lotus 1-2-3.

EditGrid has some tricks that Google Spreadsheets and Zoho Spreadsheets lack. For one thing, EditGrid lets you insert online stock-price charts, exchange rates, and other financial data from services such as Alexa, Compete.com, GoogleCharts, Reuters, and Yahoo Finance.

You can also integrate EditGrid with your existing apps using an application programming interface the company publishes.

Still, EditGrid is no Excel. EditGrid lacks Excel's macros, pivot tables, data validation, and cell merge, among other features. You'll also wait longer to save your changes than you would working on a local hard drive.

All the same, you'll find that most other spreadsheet functions (like copy and paste) operate just as fast as their counterparts do in Excel.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
