Truly powerful and versatile
Vorteile: I used this technology as a researcher for nearly three years and it continues to blow me away all that you can do with it. They have expanded their repertoire of statistical tests you can run on the program and the graph making is extremely user friendly. For my manuscripts, I pretty much only use Prism to make my figures.
Nachteile: While many statistical tests are available, it would be wonderful if some of it could become automated. For example, if there is an option for two-way ANOVA with multiple comparisons, a function should be written in to automatically display your statistics on the graph page and also display the asterisks/letters that you use to denote significance/

Comprehensive Variant of Excel
Vorteile: It had various data set ups that wouldn't be automatically formed if you were just using excel or google sheets. It includes statistical analysis as well as a variety of visual formats to display said data from bar graphs to box plots, etc.
Nachteile: There is no tutorial when downloading the software. There is very little help from outside sources. It is best learned from someone already using the system

Great for professional graphing and analysis
Kommentare: Graphing and analyzing data sets in an academic research setting.
Vorteile: Great graphing features. Particularly use the shaded error bars for plots with several data points that standard error bars would look messy on. Analysis is good - especially for derivative calculations, baseline corrections, and normalizing multiple data sets on the same graph.
Nachteile: Some difficulties in the graph formatting wizard - graphs don't always transfer over well and you have to manually change things. Some formatting is very tedious. Could be a better search for different analysis options.

Full of Bugs for Such Expensive Software
Vorteile: Has everything that you would want in terms of graph settings and statistical analyses. Graphs can look professional
Nachteile: Has lots of bugs associated with it. Also it will change/delete your graphs as it decides. When comparing two identical graphs font and other features appear different size

Standard for publication
Kommentare: This software is more or less intuitive once you play around with it for a little bit. There are tutorials and help online for clarifying anything you don't understand.
Vorteile: It is the standard for making publication quality figures for research. Offers ability to make a wide variety of different graphs, survival curves, and even heat maps with expression data. Calculates a variety of stats as well.
Nachteile: The options are confusing (column vs x-y, etc) and difficult to understand unless you've been taught by someone or have a strong graps of statistics.

Best tool for statistical analysis
Kommentare: I have been using this software for statistical analysis of my data for many years now. It is quite reliable and is widely used across my field. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this software.
Vorteile: The wide range of statistical operations one can perform using GraphPad Prism is quite impressive. The most attractive feature of this software is that the algorithms are deftly designed to churn out precise results and the "Help" section provides great insight into the principle of the statistical program to be used. Moreover, the compatibility of the software with other applications, such as Microsoft Word, Powerpoint is very useful, especially for exporting data files directly by circumventing the need for copying and pasting.
Nachteile: There in nothing in particular that I dislike about this software. However, a useful section such as "QuickTips" for some basic statistical programs can help new users get acquainted to this software.

A Powerful Statistical Tool
I exclusively used this tool in my research studies, and it is fantastic. It did the job amazingly well, and let me produce great graphs with the color palette I wanted.
It's an extremely powerful statistical tool with so many options and intricacies. Whatever you want to test statistically can most probably be done via GraphPad Prism.
You have complete control over the final look of your graphs as well; colors, shapes, lines, text..etc
It has a bit of a learning curve, you need someone to show you how to navigate your way around.
It can be daunting at first as well and frustrating at times.

Excellent tool for statistical analysis
Kommentare: I have been using this software since many years to analyze my data for publication.
Vorteile: The efficacy of this program for statistical analysis is unparalleled. It is a one stop shop for all statistical analysis of data and is widely accepted across academic institutions. As most researchers use this application for analysis, the data is largely reproducible and hence trustworthy.
Nachteile: The constant updates for this software incompatibility with different operating systems can create a bit of a hassle for the user. It is also susceptible to crashes.

Colorful graphs but hard to edit graphs
- easy way to input data to make graphs
- a diverse amount of graph designs and colors
- the graph labels are hard to edit after the graph is made
- I can only make one graph per page. It was a pain to put a figure with two or more graphs since I had to export them and put them together using other software.

Great for it's purpose, just can be pricey
Vorteile: The software is fantastic for making publication-ready graphs and running most statistics.
Nachteile: The price of the software adds up fast when ordering for a large lab. Would be nice to have a discounted flat rate for group subscriptions when multiple people use more than computer.

Most accessible and versatile statistical analysis and graphing software
Kommentare: Overall, I have been using GraphPad for over 8 years and will continue to do so because of the reasons detailed above. At this point, I think it is far beyond its competitors in terms of balancing the user experience with the statistical power of the software.
Vorteile: I love GraphPad Prism software and keep going back to it even when licenses to competing softwares have been purchased by my institution because it has flexible formatting, many common statistical analyses, and most of all because it is easy to use and to learn. My students/mentees have struggled over and over with competing softwares and then when they come to GraphPad they have no problems.
Nachteile: Occasionally, I will encounter a type of analysis that is unavailable in Prism and requires me to use a more sophisticated analysis software (such as packages in R).

excellent, comprehensive, feature-rich
Vorteile: This program is everything you wished Excel could be. It creates beautiful, highly customizable graphs, does complex statistics on your datasets and walks you through which tests to choose, and the Magic Wand tool that allows for cloning of graph styles will change your life. This is an essential software for my PhD research and I thoroughly enjoy using it.
Nachteile: Small things, really. You can't create preset color options, selecting individual datapoints is difficult (and cannot be labeled), different rows of a heatmap cannot be customized. Also, it can't handle large datasets, so look to other programs like R for data graphing or visualization. But these are extremely minor, and only noticeable because I use the program constantly.

User-friendly software for graphing and analyzing data
Vorteile: The ability to easily generate visual pleasing graphs, and perform simple statistical tests. The best feature is the capability of the software to quickly make the same type of graph uniform (color schemes, formatting labels, axis range, and etc.).
Nachteile: GraphPad provides basic statistical analysis, so for researchers wanting to perform more specialized and specific statistical tests, they will have to use statistical tests with other software. Additionally, GraphPad requires the user to format the data in a very specific way for certain types of graphs.

Great stats system, poor visual graphs
Vorteile: There are a ton of features to this program. I love that it easily does stats for you right in your graphed data. Unlike Excel, you don't need to create multiple sheets of info in order to get the analysis you want, one set of data can be manipulated to do everything. It is really handy how the stats are done all in one graph. There are lots of options that can be changed: axes, titles, etc, to customize the graphs, but these features take a very long time to find and result in a time consuming endeavor in the beginning. Not a good tool for a novice looking for a 'quick analysis'.
Nachteile: There is a STEEP learning curve. It took me forever to figure out how to use this program. I kept having to start over with the data because it easier than trying to figure out how to adjust the way the data was displayed once it was entered. find that the graphs that are produced are grainy and the colors are bland. It's very pixelated and not something I am comfortable publishing. Excel makes much nicer graphs that are more appropriate for publication.

A bit clunky to use, but makes customizable graphs and has some great analysis &formatting features
Vorteile: I like that I can have multiple data tables in one file, do statistical analysis on them in a variety of ways, and graph the images in a consistent manner. It has a pretty good magic wand for duplicating the format of the graphs. The analysis has many different tests, correlations, ANOVA, etc., and allows you to choose which datasets to include or to use variations on the analysis method.
Nachteile: It's a bit clunky, in that the software looks like it was designed in the early 90s and from a UX perspective, it hasn't changed. It has some "global" change options, where you can adjust the color or shape or transparency, etc., for all data sets at once, but it doesn't always work the way you'd expect. The magic wand to make graphs consistent also doesn't include all of the elements, so I'll still have to change some things manually.

Graphpad makes my life so much easier, it's so easy to just plug in data and have your result fast.
Kommentare: It has not only saved me time, it has also saved me from doing the wrong statistical test a few times since it kind of asks you questions based on what your data look like. Multiple times I have thought I was doing something right and when I went to analyze the data I realized there was a better option thanks to Graphpad Prism.
Vorteile: The ability to run basically any statistical test with the click of a few buttons. Also, many of the nuances and sub-tests of certain tests are actually explained next to the option to select them. That is fantastic since it is impossible to know every little fact about every test.
Nachteile: The fact that for some 2-way ANOVAs you need to transpose your data from columns into rows. It's a bit annoying and I can sometimes get confused looking at my data in a new layout.

Simple software for organizing and understanding your data
Kommentare: In the realm of scientific research, the simple data analysis GraphPad Prism offers has shaped several of my projects and experiments. For me, data analysis is a far less daunting task because of Prism.
GraphPadPrism is such a simple software for organizing and analyzing data. I'm able to use the same set of data and analyze it several ways and present it in easy-to-understand graphs. Prism also allows me to compile several graphs on one page - this is a feature I often use for presentations.
Nachteile: I spend a decent amount of time stylistically reformatting the graphs once they have been generated. Ideally, Prism would have a way to set your preferences for the title/axes, bar color, etc. so that this formatting is done automatically.

Life science power
Kommentare: It is really good for scientific publishing and statistics. It is simple enough that I can make a quick assessment of data just captured in the lab.
Prism makes the links obvious between data sets, stats and graphs. It also forces the user to organize the data in a way that makes stats work. These are areas where Excel fails.
Prism also produces publication grade graphs, which is a huge bonus.
Nachteile: Prism has limited drawing capabilities. Adding artistic elements to a presentation graph or a publication image can be important. It is somewhat pricey. It would be nice to have a spreadsheet where you had more freedom to organize your data without having to resort to another program.

Great Tool for Creating of Scientific Graphy
Kommentare: Very small and sleak program with all the basic essentials that I need for surgery research. Very small program so runs smoothly on any device.
Vorteile: very easy to use, mostly intuitive, can create very individual graphs in terms of color/shape/form, very easy to just copy paste data from other sources to GraphPad for graph creation
Nachteile: Graphpad includes a statistical feauture where it can run analyses (group comparisons) and then create graphs out of it. However, I have found this very limited and with very poor options. Therefore, I run my data on SPSS and then unfortunately have to copy it manually to GraphPad for the creation of nice graphs (see my separate SPSS review here)

Gold Standard For Statistical Analysis
Kommentare: I use Prism for practically all my statistical analyses in my academic medical research lab. Moreover I use Prism to generate almost all figures for scientific manuscripts.
Vorteile: Prism has essentially become a gold standard for graphing and statistics in academic research. It is quite easy to use and has allowed me to pick up new statistical analysis methods that I haven't previously used, which have been key to my past and current manuscripts.
Nachteile: There have been a few, more advanced post-tests that I initially had trouble locating, however the online user manual is easy to navigate and follow in order to find the tests I need.

Easy to create plots/graph for scientific paper in biomedical field
Kommentare: The software is good for fast generating basic plots ad basic data analysis.
Vorteile: I like to do calculation firstly, create heat map using "the tutorial data" option in "groups", which will generate a beautiful heat map faster than other software. It's also easy to create other plots, and basically I just copy paste the data into table and then generate "graph". Also I like the "clone" function when I want to generate new plot based on a existing one. The "magic" function save my time to make plots in consistent format.
Nachteile: Premier level data analysis will require other software.

Easy to use statistics software
Vorteile: This software makes it easy to organize, plot and analyze small- to medium-sized datasets. Instructions for choosing appropriate statistical tests for the data are pretty clear, especially with schematics to show which comparisons are being made. It's also easy to customize graphs and make them look consistent with each other.
Nachteile: I wish there were easier ways to include statistical comparisons on the graphs themselves. Something as simple as having significance brackets automatically align with two bars on a graph, for example, would improve usability.

If you want more stats than Excel can offer, this is for you
Kommentare: Indispensable for my research.
Vorteile: Prism is a very powerful statistic software that lets you do most statistical tests and data analyses someone in my field (biomedical research) is likely to need. A lot more advanced and powerful than Excel, it allows you to perform a multitude of statistical tests and to specify repeated measures, post-hoc tests, etc.
Nachteile: Need to know about the statistics you want to do. While Prism has an excellent help section to explain the tests, if you have no clue about stats this software will be difficult to wrap your head around.
