Editors' review

You can find plenty of programs to handle your CD- and DVD-burning tasks, but few have as many features and cover as many aspects as Nero. Beyond burning CDs and DVDs, you can back up your computer, create artwork for your CD and DVD cases, make complex mixes with Nero's built-in mixing software, and even check your hardware specs to make sure everything is up to speed. We like the comprehensive coverage of all things that have to do with burning, making it possible to avoid juggling several programs to make a single CD. We're also fans of the Nero PhotoShow Express module, which lets you manage your digital-image collection and create custom slide shows. One of Nero's greatest features is its MPEG-4 encoder for copying noncopyrighted DVD movies to CD-R/RW and several other media formats.

We were skeptical of the fact that Nero might be trying to stuff too much into its software, but the StartSmart GUI opens a clear path for both beginners and advanced users to every aspect of the software suite. We would like a 30-day trial rather than having the demo expire at the end of the month, which gave us only four days from our installation. Overall, this great suite of programs covers all your CD- and DVD-burning needs, and we recommend it to anyone with a writable drive.

    "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!
