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.

"Buyer Beware"

July 14, 2015  |  By powermacvt

 |  Version: Nero 2015 Platinum 16.0.05500

Pros

seems to be full featured

Cons

Will not rip commercial DVDs for backup purposes. If purchased from Nero.com you'll have a hard time getting a refund. Seems to be overly complicated and difficult to navigate.

Summary

My wife and I have 600+ DVDs and we want to be able to take our collection with us when we travel in our RV. Solution - Portable NAS system with media server. I purchased 2 copies of NERO Platinum 2015 so my wife and I could begin the arduous process of backing up our collection only to find out that NERO does not support ripping commercial DVDs. I have to think "whats the point of advertising ripping DVDs and Blu-ray disks?" If it can only rip non-commercial DVDs what's the point of even including or promoting that feature?

I've run into this type of incompatibility with other software companies and I've never had an issue getting a refund. Not Nero. They say that I should have downloaded the trial software first. So I've given them one final chance to do the right thing before opening a dispute with my credit card company.

Hopefully this note will prevent others finding themselves in the same place I am right now.
