Editors' Review

+

Nero 8 Ultra delivers a refurbished digital media suite that's still as comprehensive as they come, though now in a more polished wrapper. The installation file is massive; also, once Nero is on your machine, it consumes a hefty serving of memory. Considering all it can do, though, we can only complain so much.

CD- and DVD-burning is still Nero's core; welcome shortcuts for burning and ripping CDs and DVDs are now accessible from the new StartSmart GUI, which is now adorned with a programmable RSS reader. Authoring and burning high-definition CDs and DVDs are added features, and so is the ability to export video files made and edited with Nero to YouTube, MySpace, and MyNero.

Nero 8 Ultra introduces RescueAgent, a tool to recover data from damaged disks, and a gaggle of Vista features, including a one-click desktop gadget for copying CDs.

Despite the cosmetic alterations, Vista support, and enhancements, particularly to Nero Vision, the dramatic changes are slim. However, Nero Ultra 8's significantly faster application launch time and improved usability make the audio, video, photo, data, and home entertainment workhorse that lets you edit MP3s, capture and edit video, record and playback TV, create slide shows, back up data, convert audio files, check your hardware specs, and design disc covers with ease well worth a try.

"A buggy suite of programs!"

February 09, 2009  |  By Figaro14

 |  Version: Nero 8 Ultra Edition 8.1.1

Pros

Lots of burning options for dvds and CD's

Cons

Steep learning curve. Program frequently crashes and is filled with bugs. Company is in Germany and English appears to be a second language for them. Support is pretty much non-existant. Way to expensive to have this many problems in it.

Summary

Probably better than its competetor, Roxio, IF the suite of programs would work the way they are suppose to. Each version of Nero becomes more and more bloated but with little improvements in stability. Their support is the worst!

"Nero stinks"

November 23, 2007  |  By honey68

 |  Version: Nero 8 Ultra Edition 8.1.1

Cons

I downloaded it and decided to use another program. Now it is blocking all my other programs and I can't remove it from my computer. The program will ask me to purchase it and if I choose not to than it will close my downloads. I didn't know it would be the default program for all my internet viewing. I'm still trying to get rid of the trial program.

"Nero 8 _ What an upgrade!!!"

November 21, 2007  |  By devilspassion

 |  Version: Nero 8 Ultra Edition 8.1.1

Pros

I've been using Nero 6 for a while, and it's nothing compare to Nero 8.

Nero 6 failed constantly and the options to work with it were pretty limited.

In constrast, Nero 8 is simply amazing. The interfaces and instructions are so much clearer, many more options. Moreover, whenever I'm burning a CD, it goes all the way everytime.

It's just great!!!

"DO NOT INSTALL TRIAL VERSION!"

November 18, 2007  |  By mpanzenbeck

 |  Version: Nero 8 Ultra Edition 8.1.1

Cons

This may be good software but, DO NOT INSTALL THE TRIAL VERSION unless you intend to buy it. After using the trial version I uninstalled it only to find that my other cd/dvd programs did not function correctly. Nothing seemed to help, even uninstalling and reinstalling my programs. Even MS media player did not work. My computer got so messed up that I had to reinstall windows to get it working properly. (I am running Windows XP on a Pentium 4 system). Perhaps this will not happen to you but Beware!
