CNET Editors' review
Your computer's screen might not be the best way to watch your favorite shows, movies, and videos. If you're looking to save money by not buying an HDMI cable, this software won't be much help to you. If you are willing to spend the cash to download AoA DVD Creator, you'll have a powerful but slightly outdated software package that will help you convert your video files into DVDs.
DVD-burning programs have outworn their welcome for some, but this software takes it to a new level. The blank, gray layout looks like something out of the '90s Web world. Its lack of features seems a little stuck behind the times. It won't do much outside of burning DVDs. AoA DVD Creator does support most video formats, and it transfers the files quickly and smoothly, which is a plus. It gives you the ability to change aspect ratios and region lock your DVD. That will ensure high-quality playback no matter where you live, but probably could have been tossed for a feature more people will use. If you want to try it for free before purchasing, keep in mind that this software has a trial limitation of 50 percent conversion.
Though there are free downloads that can create DVDs, this program does out-muscle them. It's faster and keeps most of your video's quality intact. That will be enough for some people to get over the terrible layout and lack of features. However, if you want the most bang for your buck, those downsides might be unforgivable.

"very simple to use. easy to understand"
Version: AoA DVD Creator 2.6.2
Easy to understand, fast, it does what it's supposed to do.
The only flaw is that it doesn't allow you to make DVD menu interface, so whatever you put on the DVD plays in just that order. You can still skip around, but only to different movies you put on the DVD, which can be tedious.
Did exactly what it was designed to do... . Thanks for a great and simple product. Easy and clear operation. Very simple to install. Would recommend for creating dvds.
