    "Don't bother, company is out of business"

    October 22, 2008   |   By mgf3

    Version: DiscBlaze 5.1.3

    Pros

    This used to be nice, inexpensive simple software, but ....

    Cons

    The company is out of business and not reachable. Don't give them your money. Doesn't run under Leopard.

    Summary

    Don't bother.

    "They are totally hostile to customers"

    June 25, 2007   |   By jackandjillpail

    Version: DiscBlaze 6.1.6

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    WARNING: This Company Is Dead! Do Not Purchase this Software!

    Over three weeks ago I bought this hunk a junk. I had problems running it on my new Intel Mac Mini and wrote the support. No one answered. I wrote again after 15 days. Still no answer.

    It seems like they were happy to take my money but then they don't care.

    I found the following by searching for the developer, Bryan Lund:

    "We discovered the dark secret of all those shiny fancy Macs out there. A good portion of the Mac enthusiast that use them are really rude. Really, really rude. We had no idea the kind of mean hurtful things the readers...would say to us"

    This is probably due to the huge amount of criticism that Lund took on his blog some time ago (from what I've read) by customers who were dissatisfied with his products and wanted some kind of resolution to unending problems. Apparently Lund took those comments as personal attacks on himself.

    Here's further news by blogger Phill Ryu:

    "As you...screw your RadicalBreeze customers as well (the people who so generously enabled a half-assed developer to quit his day job and do quite well for years), you frame the entire thing in your favor and send out PRESS RELEASES ..."

    Again this apparently describes Lund's actions at the Macworld SF gathering in January of 2006 when he announced the "imminent" release of obvious vaporware "Formation II."

    I only wish I'd found out about this stuff *before* I bought this road apple disguised as a Mac app.

    "I prefer ShadowBurn over DiscBlaze"

    May 14, 2006   |   By donperreault

    Version: DiscBlaze 6.1.5

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    DiscBlaze does not correctly list the total size of the files in the status bar making it difficult to determine if the files will fit on a disc. I also get way to many coasters when using DiscBlaze. I have found that ShadowBurn is much more reliable and now use ShadowBurn. BTW: I am a registered user of DiscBlaze and ShadowBurn and not affiliated with either developer.

    "very good!"

    February 17, 2006   |   By alberto2602

    Version: DiscBlaze 6.1.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I had the license for the "4 pro" realise.
    I found that this program is working very well so I bought the license for the "6 pro" realise. The 6 realise and the up-graded versions are a very simple and intuitive program to burn high-quality disks.

    "burn!"

    December 03, 2005   |   By alberto2602

    Version: DiscBlaze 6.0.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have the "pro" version. The previous (4. ....) version was not so simple and intuitive to use as the new one. I did not read any instruction because the layout is foolproof.
    The results are VERY good; I have a powerful CD player on my silent car: I think that the quality depends on the media: CDs burned with diskblaze have a very good quality.

    "Pretty good..."

    October 28, 2005   |   By igamogam

    Version: DiscBlaze 6.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Quite like DB, its pretty reliable only had one CD not work (& I think the CD was the problem).

    My only gripe is the Icons always revert to the standard size, every time I change the icons to the "Use Small Size" it forgets when I next launch DB. Not having the option to use a small icon used to grate on me pre Version 6, now this is doubly annoying because the option is there but it resets itself.

    "Wonderful Program"

    September 13, 2005   |   By kcwookie

    Version: DiscBlaze 5.1.8

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have used DB for a long time now. I paid for the program long before the free/pro stuff. I received only two burns before having to buy.

    The program has been bulletproof for me and the only problem I've had is a couple of very small display snafus. I will be one of the first in line to pay for the upgrade. The company does a wonderful job supporting their stuff.

    This program really rocks!

    ...reasonable price

    DiskBlaze Pro is more than the poor mans Toast.
    It is a full featured CD/DVD burning application wich completes the burning capabilities of Mac OS X

    "Appendable CDs"

    Summary

    Only seems to allow appending to CDs in HFS+ mode. Does the Pro version improve on this?

    "Very good support"

    December 02, 2004   |   By Ira L

    Version: DiscBlaze 4.3.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I have found the support, Bryan in particular, to be extremely good. I had a problem that was the result of bad Unicode in a file I was trying to burn with DiscBlaze and it felt has if Radical Breeze tech support had become my personal trouble shooter.

    The product is not Toast, and never claimed to be. It is a much better version, with more flexibility of Apple's burn utility (which can be cumbersome at times).
