I have paid several hundred dollars for Rosetta Stone. Duolino is similar in method and just as good. I have used both for basic Spanish and IMHO they are equivalent. Rosetta Stone has more languages and may be better at more advanced levels.
Duolingo is revolutionary. My wife uses to learn english and it's fun, we both interact and use. Great tool.
I purchased Rosetta Stone a bunch of years ago for several hundred dollars. It wasn't nearly as helpful as Duolingo. The #1 feature of http://duolingo.com is having it on your phone. Got a few minutes waiting for a friend? Learn some Spanish! ❤️ it!
Admittedly I haven't tried Duolingo but I keep hearing about it from friends (like @jtzou).
I liked Duolingo as a refresher for some basics. Helped me get things back. I'm not sure about progressing with it, as I haven't tried anything new, but the form factor is nice, it's fun to do, and if you're consistent with it, it can be effective.
