I have lived in San Jose for about 7 years. Prior to living here I have lived in San Fran, San Mateo, Pacifica (which I really liked except for the fog), and other towns on the Peninsula.
The traffic in San Jose is terrible! That's a given anywhere around here. I live on the boarder of Los Gatos and it's not too bad. East San Jose...avoid!!! High crime zone. In general for this city, people (strangers) are not too friendly, not a community feel (except my street), and it's just a big mass of track homes with no character. People I think live here just to commute to Palo Alto, etc. This is the case for me and many I know. It's somewhat (ehh hmm) affordable compared to areas like Saratoga and Cupertino, although I would not buy a house here. Schools suck!
The good: It's close to Silicon Valley (peninsula area), HP Pavilion has great events, downtown is small but a nice feel.
Not my idea of good quality of life, for sure. I'm planning on moving soon, so that should tell you there how much I enjoy this city :)
