Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use The website is so much easier to use that other online brokerages I've experienced. The amount of free information and analysis is really hard to beat anywhere online.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unacceptable Levels of Website Downtime, Unimpressive Features I've been using the schwab online trading site for several years and frequently experience (once a month) periods when I cannot access my account during the trading day (I'm ignoring evening/weekend maintenance which happens more often). In addition to the down time several website features could be improved: 1. Ease of locating order status (Since I have two accounts it seems hard to check up on the order status after an order has been placed). 2. Account activity sort features. When customizing fields the user preferences must be reentered each time during a session. For example, if I want to dividend activity only and I change from current month to previous month or to my other account, the settings need to be reentered. 3.Should be able to have a total for certain fields when viewing history, such as interest/dividend. 4. Just generally don't like the design of the site. But if your user groups thinks it's great, then I'm in a minority, but I like other sites better.
