KDP Conversion for $79

I understand that in the past, a lot of people have talked about the KDP conversion offered by CreateSpace for $79.  I'm curious, since the previous discussions that I have seen are over a year old, is anyone having problems with this service now, or more recently I should say?  A lot of people were upset about how KDP converted their PDF's with "spelling errors" popping up.  Has anyone recently come across this issue?

It is said by most on here that you should not allow CS to convert your manuscript for KDP. Use the free software out there to do it yourself, like Calibre or get a professional to do the conversion.

Well, no matter what you use to get your ebook created - you need to open a KDP account and uipload your book there, that is, if you want it to be available as a Kindle edition.

Yes, KDP and CS are totally separate entities despite being owned by the same parent company, Amazon. I have had satisfactory results using Calibre, others say that the small price to pay for Jutoh is worth it. I couldn't comment on that. All I know is that allowing either CS or KDP to perform the conversion is fraught with inadequacy.

Sorry Dan'l, I think we were replying at the same time then.
