Editors' Review

+

Nero 2015 Platinum is the latest iteration of one of the best-known media and disc-burning suites for Windows. Music, video, data, and slideshows: Nero burns them all, Blu-ray included. It also plays discs and media files, converts video and audio, creates slideshows and photo albums, and streams media to your TV and other devices on your home media network.

Pros

Welcome: Nero 2015 Platinum's full-screen Welcome page provides quick access to main functions like Manage and Play or Rip and Burn, but it also centralizes everything you need, including Tutorials, Tools & Settings, and Your Product, which opens the Nero ControlCenter for managing serial numbers, updates, and other important product information.

Burning: Disc burning is one of Nero's core competencies. Nero Video, Nero Express, Nero Burning ROM, and several other bundled tools work together to create and burn CDs, DVDs, and Blu-ray discs, as well as store data and backups on rewritable discs (plus 5GB of included free online storage). No "drink coasters," either: We burned a multi-chapter DVD on our very first attempt.

Play: Nero Blu-ray Player plays Blu-ray movies and other discs on your PC or on your TV. Nero MediaHome not only streams movies and music as part of your home media network but also includes nifty extras like Timelines and Face Recognition.

Cons

Big: Nero 2015 Platinum does so much that it can be a bit overwhelming at first. Don't get us wrong: Nero is as easy to use (or easier) than other media solutions of its size and capability, which take time to master. For some jobs, basic freeware might be enough.

Bottom Line

Integrated, all-in-one media solutions tend to be large and complex, but Nero 2015 Platinum proved surprisingly easy to use without giving up on the features and extras that set it apart from lesser tools.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of Nero 2015 Platinum. The trial version is limited to 15 days with some features disabled.

"I will never look at Nero software again"

November 03, 2014  |  By klunky--2008

 |  Version: Nero 2015 Platinum 16.0.030001

Pros

Excellent propaganda, full rich claims, lovely pictures of their software. Endless claims of "how easy" and "so powerful".

Cons

Their tutorials are useless. They never give you any idea of what the software components actually do, just some "details" as though you were born with an intimate knowledge of their software. They use jargon as thought it were English. For example, what does "Recode" mean? You will never be told by any explanation. Which would be okay if you could tell from opening the software and understanding the plan. No matter what video extension I gave it, it just rejected the video without explanation. And somehow all they seem to be focused on is burning DVD's;. If you want to do anything else, forget it Don't even dream about converting and then saving to your hard drive. Yes, you can save to some smartphone or tablet or DVD but not to a file. They have you and your needs all figured out but you had better go along with their plan for you or you are out of luck. Maybe, just maybe, if you are constantly burning DVD's, this software might help.

Summary

I made a mistake. I am trying to reverse the purchase. There is freeware and shareware that does it all better and cheaper than Nero. AVS does some of it without all the hype.

"EPIC EPIC Fail!!"

June 23, 2014  |  By Roket001

 |  Version: Nero 2014 Platinum 15.0103000

Pros

Don't know don't care.

Cons

Unethical business practices takes away from a product that has a spotty history throughout versions. Finally now with the rollout of 2014 the breach of contract in my opinion renders this product unworthy of any money.

Summary

I used free versions since before 2000. in the mid 2000's I bought Nero 6 Ultra (the what is now Platinum everything edition). It worked well with occasional glitches that were addressed by updates. Then 7 came out so I "upgraded" to that and never a poorer program have I owned. I removed it and ran 6 since then and ate the loss of $$. I figured after many years they ironed things out so I bought from scratch Nero 10 Platinum with all the "theme packs" and everything. I upgraded to 12 Platinum when it came out and then they released a pack for Vision called Vision Xtra. It was dl as part of Platinum as it came with Platinum. It CAME WITH PLATINUM TO PLATINUM BUYERS AS PART OF PLATINUM THAT I BOUGHT. BOUGHT. Now that 2014 came out my last "update" rendered Vision Xtra no longer operable with the themes with a message "expired". Vision Xtra was NOT a "subscription service" I BOUGHT it as PART of PLATINUM which was a MAIN reason I PAID the xtra $$ for Vison Xtra! They want to make it a pay extra now that comes with Platinum 2014 as part of it. But if I want mine to work I HAVE TO "upgrade" to 2014!?? You see the update disabled functionality of xtra in Nero 12 after the fact of the money I SPENT TO BUY IT. I called tech support and it says pay over a $1.00 a minute and no guarantees of success and can we have your credit card number to connect the call? SAY WHAT? So this is what you pay a sawbuck for. NERO attitude now apparently is shaddup and give us your money. There are NO telephone numbers for and contacting of Nero save the one that tries to soak you for as much $$ as a pay for sex call service! So buy Nero at your OWN risk people!

"Worst trial software ever"

June 02, 2014  |  By swopinion

 |  Version: Nero 2014 Platinum 15.0.08500

Pros

The menus were easy to follow.

Cons

Takes forever to install, it's only good for 14 days, and if you want to burn a dvd greater than 100mb you're out of luck, because it won't burn over 100mb with the trial version.

Summary

Taking about 30 minutes to install just to find out it won't let me burn the ISO I wanted because it's over 100mb was bad enough but it took another 30 minutes to un-install it and the ad-ware it installed as part of the process. Nero used to stand for quality software but if this trial is any indication, I'd rather go with a "free" alternative.

"AWSOME PROGRAM - BETTER THAN A NO NO FOR HAIR REMOVAL"

April 13, 2014  |  By rickpilat

 |  Version: Nero Burning ROM 5.5.1

Pros

IT LOOKS REALLY COOL / LIKE BEYONCE BUT NO MILEY SIRUS

Cons

DOESNT WORK AS WELL AS A YUGO BUT SLIGHTLY WORSE THAN FLIGHT 370 (AND THE PREVIOUS FLIGHTS THEY TRIED TO FLY

Summary

TAKE ALL OF THE STUPID PHONES AWAY FROM THE IDIOTS THAT WORK ON THIS AND HAVE THEM WRITE A STABLE PROGRAM INSTEAD OF AN APP - HOOK UP WITH NAPOLEON BONAPART FOR APPROPRIATE CODE

"Disappointed in performance"

December 16, 2013  |  By fastdude007

 |  Version: Nero 2014 Platinum 15.0.03500

Pros

Overall easy installation, quicker start up time

Cons

There are no options to upload to a photo-sharing service such as Flickr or Picasa, Nero Video capture mode is not working, windows 8 keeps crashing when loading the capture feature.

Summary

After downloading Nero 14 I spend hours with the Nero support group to figure out why my capture mode isn't working. My hauppauge capture device works fine with Total Extreme Media and my Cyberlink power director but it seems Nero support could not fix my issue with their own software. Nero support stopped contacting me.

"Utter Rubbish"

December 11, 2013  |  By Scallywag355

 |  Version: Nero 12 12.0.02000

Pros

There are none!

Cons

It will not run, page after page of wonderful graphics, error messages and none of it runs

Summary

I have used different versions of NERO on various PC's for years with great success, ease of use and perfect results be it CDs or DVDs. My latest PC runs Windows 7 (64 bit), and I upgraded NERO from a supplied copy of NERO Essentials to a copy of NERO 12. What a catastrophic error, I might just as well have taken the purchase money and thrown it out of the window. Lots of fancy screens and graphics, all total BS. All I get is a message stating that i do not have burn rights, contact your administrator (which of course I am the administrator!) and to "click here to download". Result a page telling me that something wonderful is coming soon!! It just goes round and round in circles giving the same screens and messages. I have not read a single review that is complementary about NERO 12, and I think the trash-can is the right spot for NERO12.

"I have Nero 2014 - It's not the best software there is"

December 03, 2013  |  By JamesAndersonJr

 |  Version: Nero 2014 Platinum 15.0.03400

Pros

Attempted GUI Improvements.

Cons

Still ugly, dysfunctional software, blurry inconsistent icons, buggy software, inconsistency across the board, bad customer service... if it's bad programming, or a bad idea, and you can think of it, it's in Nero. How proud must there country be of them for making such a great statement, selling this awesome software worldwide. Ha! What a joke!

Summary

I got Nero 2014 on NewEggs Cyber-Monday deal for about $75 off retail. Even for what I paid, I still believe my cash could have been better spent elsewhere. Sad. Folks do a simple Google search for 'ImgBurn', or better yet go directly to http://www.imgburn.com for better FREE software. As for Nero AG, losing customers left and right? Once they run the well completely dry, they'll implode upon themselves, go completely bankrupt, and be entire defunct shorty thereafter. Then the Nero Wikipedia article can be about the real Roman Emperor Nero, once again.
