Editors' Review


Need a utility to create and burn backups of your CDs and DVDs? Alcohol 120% can handle just about all of them. Popular for its ripping speeds, it only lacks in the options department--they're a bit thin.

Its wizard-based interface is handy for managing CD images and virtual drives. The program handles most disc image formats, including ISO, Nero, CloneCD, and CDRWIN. Profiles let you save copy settings for audio, game, data, discs. Beyond the wizard, the interface is sparse. Still, the functionality of the application, which should satisfy all users, justifies its price.

"Secretly hijacks browsers! DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

Fully functioning program, easy to use.


Packed full of CRAP. Browser add-ons, changed home page, etc! There was NO prompt to opt in or out of these add-ons! What crap!!


Packed full of untrustworthy crap, steer clear.

This product had a good name with me (UNTIL NOW). Have used earlier versions and enjoyed them.


During install, I had no browsers open. But Opera notified me something was modifying it but said it blocked it. Firefox also complained but let the mod go through. Micro$loth Explorer of course said nothing and silently rolled over. I have not yet checked my installations of Chrome or Safari because I seldom use them. IT NEVER NOTIFIED OR ASKED ME BEFORE DOING THIS. Let me repeat this for the person who claims it does not do it: IT NEVER NOTIFIED OR ASKED ME BEFORE HOSING MY BROWSERS. I even reinstalled it to be sure I had not missed a prompt or question. STAY AWAY from this garbage.

As far as earlier versions are concerned, I did not like the fact it has it's own proprietary disk image format - What is wrong with just strictly using ISO??? I have not yet used the product and probably won't given the stunt it pulled during install.


This part is easy: STAY AWAY FROM THIS GARBAGE!!! I hope CNET pulls them down and bans them.

"Great software, very overpriced."

It burns in a HUGE variety of formats, and is very reliable.


After the trial is up, it's expensive software.

NONE at all


I downloaded this and immediately my browser was hijacked and system crashed.


I don't know what else to say. CNET is a very reputable site but obviously someone has done something with this file. As I said above, I downloaded this file and my browser was hijacked and my system crashed.
