    August 23, 2014  |   By skipking

    Pros

    ABSOLUTELY NONE.

    Cons

    CONTAINED VIRUS THAT TOOK ME 2 HOURS TO REMOVE. HAD TO DOWNLOAD NORTON POWER ERASER TO REMOVE. MALWAREBYTES AND NORTON 360 WERE INEFFECTIVE. (SORRY, I ALREADY FORGOT THE NAME OF THE VIRUS, BUT IT WAS A BEAST.)

    Summary

    "Program Works well but....."

    June 16, 2014  |   By djbee12

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    The program looks great
    Update are available from install followed by a prompt to buy premium version.
    It erase disks and writes data on a disks I only previously erase or write to using windows alone.
    The program gives the option to verify disk written, rewrite data to another disk or go back. and of course the prompt to buy

    Also it does/ but I have not tried
    movie
    music
    images
    copy disk
    projects

    Cons

    Cons
    I don't like the auto install function................ So i cancel and downloaded directly. Ashampoo Burning Studio FREE still auto installs :(
    It does ask if you want to download the Adware--> backup program.
    Once installed it asks you to share on the social network and asks a second time to tell your friends as well as let you know the full version is ready for you to buy
    upon installing It adds a two shortcut to Your desktop 1. the program and 2. "a link Software Deals" without asking prior.
    When uninstalling it leave 9 folder, 8 files, 50 -58 key something keys and other leftovers on your system.

    Summary

    I love the look of the program and it works well. I knock it down stars because of the Auto install (autoinstall does not allow you to check the program for viruses), the added desktop links. ( I just don't like getting extra stuff that i have to remove later) and three attempts to get you to buy before you have tried the program. Other than that it a great program.

    "no nonsense burner once you dodge the junk"

    June 4, 2014  |   By batvette

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    it works, what else can I say

    Cons

    as reported by others some junk sneaks by

    Summary

    I've used various versions of this for years now, it does the job well and is easier to use than many paid burners. Lately it has been putting crapware in it but it's not so bad you can't get rid of it easily.

    "Not sure what to think..."

    May 11, 2014  |   By GinnyLee8

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    It seems impressive with an easy interface/user-friendly.

    Cons

    Crashed my computer after installation & then activation.
    Comes with a "Your Software Deals" software which I was not given the option to DECLINE.

    Summary

    Seriously, I'm not sure what to think. Immediately after installation it prompted me to activate/register the software which I happily did, but then the computer crashed and I had to reboot.

    *I just want to make very clear that I download free software all the time, without problems, and I know to DECLINE all other software so it annoys me that 'Your Software Deals' was craftily coded to piggyback itself onto my desktop along with the Ashampoo.

    As for the Ashampoo software itself it appears to be user-friendly and impressive. I will keep it for now, but the other piggybacked software will be removed.

    "Simple, Easy to use, Lots of "Free" crapware included!!"

    May 5, 2014  |   By pukeyluke

    Version: Ashampoo Burning Studio Free 1.14.5

    Pros

    Simple to download and install.
    Very easy to use.
    Interface is easy to understand.

    Cons

    **BEWARE** when installing this software.
    Click "decline" for everything otherwise you'll
    end up with alot of crapware.
    Don't just click accept accept like you would usually do.
    This is one of those programs that you end up with strange programs installed that you don't know where they came from.
    They're not viruses just very very annoying programs.

    Summary

    Good software.
    Sneaky crapware installed if you don't read and click carefully during the installation process
