Pros: For people who only likes to work in two dimensions this is the best choice. Another version of Autocad are very heavy and has all that options of 3D and rendering that I never use, but this one is perfect for me. In Autocad LT I can manage a huge range of tools for design any kind of plans, it has also a very easy interphase to work that do not require command line to work, in this version you can use PDF files and Bing maps which is very useful in some cases. The import of PDF files is secure and precise, and has a better objet selection tio improve your work. This is version is what I person like me needs to do plans and excellent designs in two dimensions.

Cons: The software ahs a lot of details, but with some practice you can handle perfectly, this is not a software for people who loves rendering and 3D models, this is for professionals who make plans in two with accuracy and detail.

Pros: Loved the software! Only need it for 2d drawings. Didn't need full blown program. Price is very reasonable.

Cons: Had 2007 LT on my computer. Computer crashed. Lost the software. Lost all info. My complaint is Auto Desk will not help after I paid for software.

Pros: I liked that this software is pretty functional for a light version and comes from the same stable as the industry leader

Cons: For those who are not CAD experts, getting to grips with the tool will be challenging, however in my experience this is the case with CAD as a whole.

Pros: This still has everything I need for 2D drafting, without all the extra frills that I'll never use. It's easy to use once you know all the tools/shortcuts/commands, but there are a lot of them.

Cons: The only downside that I can think of is that the software crashes every now and then, which can be aggravating when you are working on a tight deadline.

Overall: This software is widely used in the drafting industry, so it is easy to send and receive project files between employees/companies.

Pros: ACAD LT has most of the features like Sheet Set Manager and AD Center that are useful for drawing production purposes.

Cons: ACAD LT oesn't have the same 3D capabilities as ACAD Architecture, so you can't open some blocks which are 3D. There are some bugs but every version update gets better.

Pros: Has most all features you need for drafting. Autocad sets the standard for drafting software. Most everyone accepts their files and is familiar with it.

Cons: If unfamiliar with Autocad, it can take a little time to get it to do what you need. LT has most features as full blown Autocad but have run into a few that it is missing.

Pros: Its very powerful. I am amazed how accurately the Snap functions predict the points I want to measure/draw to. Most things are pretty intuitive and the changes between versions haven't been difficult to figure out. The command bar at the bottom has remained so I have always been able to do what I want even if I can't find the icon. I really like the "area" function when working with GA drawings.

Cons: I think the "Help" portion could be better with links to tutorials. I've had to general "Google" some items to find answers. I wish mobile version was easier to use. I wish there was a large library of blocks available without having to download them. The software is expensive although probably worth it.

Overall: I have been able to make clean and concise P&ID drawings and layout/utilize GA and elevation drawings of my sites.

Pros: The value of this is great. You can't beat the capabilities you get for the cost you are paying. This is purely a 2D drawing method with no 3D features at all. Essentially AutoCAD light. If you are just drawing in 2D it's hard to beat the value of this.

Cons: No 3D elements and not always able to integrate with other features. There are other elements that do not come with this either. Please check what you use in CAD before purchasing to see if you need CAD of LT

Overall: Cheaper version of AutoCAD. Hard to beat for the money.

Pros: Once you get past the learning curve it's easy to use, and pretty powerful. Most of the limitations will come from user inexperience. Once you're familiar with it you can create some great things!

Cons: The price can me a detriment to some, as there are cheaper alternatives that do similar things, but most of them are not as powerful or well configured as this. Also, if you're not familiar with any CAD like products, it might be a learning curve.

Overall: The ability to make some wonderful things with ease and precision to the right specifications is a huge help.

Great for students.

Cons: Plots show watermarks as an educational version that may or may not be a problem. We worked in LT at home and used the university full versions for plots.

AutoCAD LT is perfect for me since I only need occasional use and ability to do simple drawings.

Pros: I appreciate that LT is compatible with full version AutoCAD drawings and the low cost allows me to access and maintain my autocad library of drawings without the expense of the full version of AutoCAD.

Cons: I miss some features of AutoCAD and Map but understand this is a limited and lower cost version of AutoCAD.

Overall: The main benefit of this software is being able to maintain access to my past Autocad drawing library and be able to view and modify those as needed. I also use it for the occasional small project as well.

Pros: If you are looking for inexpensive software to create 2D drawings, AutoCAD LT will get the job done.

Cons: It's very frustrating to use 2D software if you've ever used 3D software, which is much more powerful. (Of course it's not AutoCAD's fault if you're still using 2D.) That said, the interface needs much improvement--it takes too long to do simple things.

Overall: It allows us to view and modify our old 2D drawings.

Pros: Ease of use - I found it very intuitive to complete the majority of the features that AutoCAD has to offer. The price was another determining factor for purchasing this software.

Cons: How many times i find myself clicking the mouse to move, rotate, select, etc. I am accustomed to clicking and dragging and I find myself clicking frequently. I still do this wrong because it is second nature to click and drag.

Overall: I am able to now see the plant layout and plan accordingly.

Pros: Extremely flexible and easy to use. The user is limited to only to his or her own imagination. I use autoCad Lt on a daily basis and I find new things and short cuts everyday.

Cons: Loading time. Really the only thing is loading time, I can turn it on go get a coffee and by the time I get back its almost done.

Pros: Since moving away from the Architecture industry and going from being a PC user to a MAC user I was happy to see the ACAD LT was available on MAC. Everything works seamlessly and virtually the same as the PC version

Cons: The biggest challenge has been plotting. There are a few bugs with saving previous plots and settings but otherwise it's not prohibitive.

Overall: I can use it on MAC which has been my preferred platform for the past 5 years.

Pros: I have been a CAD user since 2005 but more extensively 2007 when I started working at an architecture firm. I love the xref portion and the ability to layer drawings. I like that users can pay to use on a monthly basis instead of buying license packages etc.

Cons: I wish all AutoCAD LT drawings when in sheet mode had the ability to create a revision history log - which could be turned on/off. Sometimes when the architect/engineer releases new sheets it is hard to keep track of revision history (for guys in the field). The log could contain revision history number and description for 'future' tracking purposes.

Overall: Overlaying MFEP drawings and obtaining dimensions for onsite coordination.

Pros: This stripped down version of AutoCAD gives you all the tools you need to do basic drafting. If you have no need for all the bells and whistles and want to save some money by not buying the regular AutoCAD, this is the way you should go.

Cons: Since I do use all of the original AutoCAD features my biggest con is the limitations of this software. This is an unfair evaluation though considering the whole point of this software is to provide limited functions.

Overall: AutoCAD is great

Comments: Use to have the full version, but have been using LT for the past few years. Able to do the work needed without the added cost. Not super excited the software companies have gone away from buying the program to more of a lease, but has smaller up front cost. Also, you as the user get more updates and new features this way.

Comments: As the name suggest Autocad LT is a nice tool for light drawing and a tool which is user-friendly.
Only concern is of large companies when you have multiple product licenses you have no option to utilize higher end licenses to gain Autocad LT license.To simplify you can not open Autocad LT if you have Autocad premium design suite license.
