Editors' Review

+

Express Burn Plus is a premium optical disc burning suite that can write, burn, and copy audio, video, and data discs, including Blu-ray video and data discs. It has an easy-to-handle user interface and integrates with other utilities from NCH, including both freeware and shareware.

Pros

Quick start wizard: A quick start feature lets you create and burn any kind of disc quickly. If you don't want it to launch with the app, a checkbox dismisses it.

ISO: Express Burn Plus also creates ISO files and burns ISO/Joliet, UDF, and Hybrid data discs.

CD-TEXT: Burning Audio CDs in Session at Once mode enables CD-TEXT. We could enter CD-TEXT details in a dialog.

Command line: A command line option allows Express Burn Plus to integrate with other apps.

Cons

Help file: Although Help buttons are found in various places around Express Burn Plus, the Help menu lists Help contents, and the program folder includes a folder labeled Help, no Help file could be found.

Nothing special: Perhaps our biggest concern with Express Burn Plus is that it offers little to distinguish itself from many capable freeware disc burning utilities, other than a price tag of nearly $50.

Bottom Line

Express Burn Plus is a capable tool that includes most of the features we expect in a premium disc burning tool. But similar apps are available for considerably less, including freeware. As always, try (and try others) before you buy.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Express Burn Plus 4.77.

"This software damaged my Windows 7 system."

February 23, 2015  |  By illini1956

 |  Version: Express Burn Plus 4.77

Pros

Nice-looking interface. Did not get to really try it out [see below].

Cons

This loaded a lot of acoustic programs that I did not expect or understand. In addition, it destroyed my volume icon and some factory-installed sound software that I have no means of reinstalling.

Summary

I had to revert to an earlier system image made before I installed this software. I am keenly disappointed that CNet let me do this.

"High Quality Burner"

August 29, 2014  |  By HeavySoftwareUser

 |  Version: Express Burn 4.68

Pros

I have to completely agree with bob on this one. It has all the features I would want, does what I need it to do for free, and if you buy pro you'll never need another burner again.

Cons

Nothing bad, except the interface could use some modernization.

"15% DISCOUNT COUPON found today"

June 25, 2014  |  By bobdowson

 |  Version: Express Burn 4.68

Pros

I've yet to have encountered a disc burner with all these features and so easy to work. I've been recommending it to friends on various sites. And I've bought it with discount here:
www.best-software-discounts.com/express-burn.htm

Cons

Nothing bad to say.

"It works!!!"

March 25, 2013  |  By PrInCeSs_LiLo28

 |  Version: Express Burn 4.62

Pros

I thought at first it would not burn my DVD video but it did. Apparently it was pixelized because the source video was pixelized. I was even able to edit the video and amplify the audio. Saved my life as I thought I couldn't find a free version that worked. Still using free unlicensed version but it works well for me.

Cons

I installed all the other software that came with it and it just looks messy but I was actually able to use the editing software. It takes a long process but works well for me. Also, I did not verify anymore after burning as it says error though there's really none.

Summary

I don't know why most of the users say it didn't work for them. I still use the free unlicensed version but it worked wonders. Thank you Express Burn!!!

"Free drugs are bad for you, and they ain't free."

October 18, 2012  |  By TSloth

 |  Version: Express Burn Plus 4.58

Pros

Worked once. "Discounted" price is only $38 more than it's worth.

Cons

Downloaded some other NCH software, got an (unwanted) link to this put into my Programs menu, turned out to require another download, trial period was short, began to uninstall it, was offered the free version. Didn't tell me that the free version doesn't burn data DVD's. What a waste of time.

Summary

There are plenty of free CD and DVD burning programs, for example InfraRecorder. Save yourself the trouble of installing and uninstalling this one.

"To many problems with results"

February 27, 2012  |  By IstandIsing

 |  Version: Express Burn Disc Burning Software 4.52

Pros

The layout is fine and I could figure it out OK.

Cons

It kept crashing and cut the end off a movie twice even though it was all there. It's also very slow compares to other programs I used. I wanted it to burn various types of video file. The related converter is fine. If only the results were better.

Summary

If they ever get all the bugs out it will be a good program. I tried DVD Flick and burned the same movie but it played. It's also slow but is free and works.

"So far, so good. Works as described"

December 26, 2011  |  By wwwgjsnet

 |  Version: Express Burn Disc Burning Software 4.52

Pros

Unlike some of the standard commercial programs, it does not by default keep trying to index all of the zillions of audio files in my computer. I like to burn MP3 files with associated images as data. PERIOD. Good not being faced with other features of little relevance to me. Interface and common functions are very easy to understand.

Cons

Not sure just yet if this is a REAL problem or not: Express Burn "verification" always "fails" when burning CD data disks of my XP Desktop. HOWEVER, when burning CD data disks (with similar content) on my 64 bit Windows 7 notebook, the "verification" feature always passes. Ultimately, both "unverified" and "verified" disks SEEM to play the same. The "seem" attribute comes from the fact that every second of every MP3 track (with total run times of several hours) can not be definitely checked. Inquiring minds want to know. With apologies to the National Inquirer. Cheers.

Summary

NOT MUCH MORE TO SAY.

"Watch out or you will get ripped off"

December 08, 2011  |  By GJS909

 |  Version: Express Burn Disc Burning Software 4.52

Pros

Not many, pretty basic functionality. Nothing special to recommend it.

Cons

The program downloaded an update, then invalidated my license! So now, 10 months after I purchased it, I have useless crap.

They DID NOT tell you that you would need to save your old version (which is ERASED by the update) or pay for a new license.

They also tacked on an unwanted extra charge when I purchased the program.

This is a totally dishonest company.

Summary

Look elsewhere.
