Editors' Review

+

Nero MediaHome is a neatly organized media manager that quickly retrieves and plays many forms of audio and video. The friendly design and reliable support make using this application easy and enjoyable. Many interesting features are available with this software, but the price of some add-ons may not be worth it.

Pros

Great interface: Nero MediaHome has a very neat and orderly layout that is quite intuitive. Regardless of your skill level, you will easily find what you're looking for because of the organization tabs and clean interface. Customizable themes are also available for free, which gives you the ability to enhance Nero's design.

Superb features: We found that the facial recognition and tag management tools worked perfectly during our tests. The slideshow creator is engaging, and you will take pleasure in the different themes and design options that come standard with Nero.

High performance: During our tests, Nero MediaHome never crashed and always located media files on our PC. Song and video playback were flawless, and the application never displayed any sluggishness or errors.

Cons

Unnecessary costs: Nero MediaHome supports a large variety of files if you pay extra for "Apps." Many of these Apps are actually plug-ins that come standard with other media players, so we believe this aspect of the software is unfair to you.

Bottom Line

You will not find many faults with Nero MediaHome, but you may find yourself frustrated with the unsupported video codecs. Other programs, like Roxio, offer video capture tools; we suggest that Nero include this as well if it wants to remain competitive. We suggest you download Nero MediaHome to manage your files; and judging by the performance of Nero's free software, the paid version is likely a powerful, well-built service, as well.

"Cannot create iso, cannot burn"

May 01, 2015  |  By Holybride

 |  Version: Nero MediaHome 16.0.0170099

Pros

Bulky for collecting your media files only.

Cons

You can't create iso or burn anything.

Summary



Updated on May 1, 2015

It cannot create ISO or CUE out of a CD. So after searching & trying software like hell, I use Ashampoo Burning Studio FREE to do the job.

"Incredible Software!"

October 02, 2014  |  By jkeltonga

 |  Version: Nero MediaHome 16.0.01000

Pros

Facial recognition works great. VERY easy to sort and locate photos. Automatically locates, sorts, catalogs and produces albums based on date, location, person, etc.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

I absolutely LOVE this software! Why I never found this sooner bewilders me. I have over 10,000 photos and videos, and this software effortlessly sorted and located my photos. I have always wanted a program that would locate photos based on who was in the photo, and this program does exactly that. Now I can make that video of that one person I want without having to look through every photo and video to see if that person was in it. All I can say is THANK YOU JESUS!!!

"DO NOT BUY!!!"

July 10, 2014

 |  Version: Nero MediaHome 15.0.02900

Pros

Nothing. Product did not work

Cons

No audio and customer service only responded after 6 days. Refused to refund product which did not work on my device. When I requested refund, suddenly customer service started responding within minutes. There are free products on the internet which work perfectly.

Summary

DO NOT BUY!!!

"False advertising"

January 12, 2014  |  By grunge_dude

 |  Version: Nero MediaHome 15.0.01000

Pros

Interface was interesting, but not much
nice to say beyond that.

Cons

Did not burn CD to CD
Required CD ripping and was kind a slow
Cost to burn was an additional $4.99
Nero survey didn't allow direct criticism of
their product.

Summary

Player was advertised as a free media home player, but cost money to burn disc. I should have known, nothing is really free. I deleted the application; I wouldn't pay money for this garbage!

"Deceptive!"

July 23, 2013  |  By Lindoro_Almaviva

 |  Version: Nero Kwik Media 12.5.00300

Pros

None, I deleted it right away

Cons

It is not what it tells you it is

Summary

This program makes you believe that it is free, but do not be fooled. Once you install it, and click on what you want to do, it takes you to the Nero App store where for $5 you can get the app that will let you do that function.

"True Rating not Possible, did not Work with LG GP08NU6B"

April 03, 2012  |  By RockOnTed

 |  Version: Nero BurnLite 10.0.105

Pros

Cannot Put Forth Any Legitimate Pros

Cons

Cannot Put Forth Any Legitimate Cons

Summary

Simply Put, I received a LG GP08NU6B USB CD/DVD Burner, as a Gift! It was some what misleading about the Software that cam with the device, by CyberLink, I am still listed as a "Bronze Member' and License's show that I should be able to use there Power2Go V6.02, however, any time I load the Software, Non-Function seems to be the best Description, if I use there Power2Go V5.5, I am still very limited on what I can Burn With this Device? Even Simple Data Burn to a DVD seems to Crash, just before it is Finished?? I have heard many, tell me that Ahead/Nero is one of the best DVD Burning Software Available, but I have yet, to experienced this Successfully???
