I have been using the InstEd software for some time now and it has been fairly reliable. It is easy to use and the user interface is intuitive. The software is also well integrated with Windows, allowing easy installation. I have had no problems updating it, and it installs updates quickly. The only downside is that some features are not available in the free version. But overall, InstEd provides a solid experience. The support is also quite helpful.
