Editors' reviewThough primarily known for its CD- and DVD-burning prowess, the newest version of Nero Ultra proves itself to be a full-fledged media workhorse. We should note the program's downloadable file is big and takes awhile to install; also once Nero is on your machine, it does consume a rather hefty serving of memory. But considering all the application can do, we can only complain so much. The attractive StartSmart GUI opens a clear path for both beginners and advanced users to every aspect of the software suite. CD- and DVD-burning options are as comprehensive as they come, whether you're working with photos, data, music, or video. Other features let you erase discs; convert audio files; capture video; edit photos; make back-ups; check your hardware specs; and create slide shows, custom audio mixes, and disc covers. Version 7 takes things one step further with Media Center-like features that allow you to watch and record TV, as well as manage your entire collection of media. We would like a 30-day trial rather than having the demo expire at the end of the month, but if you time it right, you should be able to get plenty of use out of it. Anyone who uses their computer for entertainment purposes will find Nero Ultra 7 well worth its price tag.
Nero 7 Ultra Edition now offers both the PC and TV media management experience for a complete digital media solution. With over 18 new and updated applications in one powerful software suite, Nero 7 Ultra Edition is truly the perfect addition to your digital home.
