    "Slows your computer to a snail's pace"

    June 26, 2012  |   By SLWeber70

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    Nero is, unfortunately, the best program for burning CDs/DVDs and editing audio or video files that that I've heard of out there.

    Cons

    Even if you go throught the trouble of configuring the installation so that the ad-ware and unnecessary or redundant parts of Nero are not installed, installation takes forever. Once it's installed, your computer's performance is dragged down to a crawl, comparatively. In addition, the company is extremely protective of their license and will not allow you to re-install it easily if you ever need to re-do your harddrive.

    Summary

    If somebody has a suggestion as to cheaper burning and editing software, I'd really like to know so that I can get this Nero junk off my system.

    "Does the Job"

    May 26, 2012  |   By Bumblebee-tuna

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    * does all my AVCHD to DVD home movies
    * Doesn't appear to crash at all despite long periods of use
    * *Loads of features for video editing and sound editing

    Cons

    * Doesn't seem to work well for older versions of Windows for other people, Wouldn't recommend for XP users
    *Not very compatible for older computers (Based on other reviews)
    *Not the prettiest user interface
    *Cant drag n Drop files directly into projects ( Although I think this is to avoid issues caused by files being moved)
    *Long render time, even on Quad core PC with files that were already HD digital (Not analog)

    Summary

    I downloaded the serial and a "Trial" version. I have not had a single crash or freeze despite working for hours with Full HD files and multiple audio tracks, so Im happy with the reliability of it. It has all the features I actually use, but a few I wont such as some of the extra programs but I guess they try to cater for everything. Overall Im happy with this program although I think the interfaces could be redesigned but I guess that's just nitpicking. For XP users I wouldn't get this as it seems to not be 100% compatible (Based on other reviews) for Win7 it seems to be stable and decent.

    "Don't use this"

    April 21, 2012  |   By Saynotonero

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    Can't think of any

    Cons

    Do not waste your time with this. Especially do not waste your time with the 'free trial version', which takes up ridiculous disk space...then it doesn't even work. You can't actually 'try' any of the features of the software, it just keeps repeatedly telling you to pay for the product. I WAS considering buying it, but once I figured out that the trial won't actually let me 'try' anything...well, forget it.

    Now it's taking Windows 7 the better part of half an hour to uninstall this piece of junk. So I thought I'd write this while I wait...

    Summary

    All I wanted to do was burn a home movie to DVD, but I was dissapointed by the quality of the end product with Windows DVD maker.

    I ended up purchasing ConverttoDVD4 from VSO. That one at least let me burn a trial (with text over the video), but at least I could see the quality was much improved compared with WDVDM. So I bought it. Two thumbs up for the VSO product!!

    "HUGELY UNNECESSARY And USELESS CRAP"

    April 18, 2012  |   By privatejohn

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    -Nothing... Starting From Version 8 Up To The Future Versions

    Cons

    -Stupid 370+Mega Byte Installer
    -Took 15~30 Minutes JUST For Unpacking!!!
    -Asking To Reboot Many Times (Prior To Nero 7 And Above)
    -Wasting Too Much Time Installing
    -Does NOT Support Windows XP
    -Too Many Prerequisites When Installing In Windows XP, But NOTHING BUT FAILURE PIECE OF CRAP
    -HEAVILY BLOATED 2 Gigs Wasted HD Space Just For Burning CDs And DVDs
    -EXTREMELY SLOW Loading Of Burning ROM (As Of Nero 8)
    -Very PRONE To Burning Failures And CD/DVD Writer Damages Due To Hogging And Loading That Took A LONG TIME
    -I HATE Other Bundled Packages (i.e. PhotoSnap, Nero Video) That Can Brag My HD Space
    -Advertises At My E-mail With Useless Promos
    -Customer Support Is Quite Very Poor (According To Other Reviews)

    Summary

    TOO MUCH BLOATED ON THIS! I've Replace Nero Bloatware With Another, Yet Open-source Ands Light-weight CD/DVD Burning Tools Like "InfraRecorder" And CDBurnerXP. Thanks To Those Developers Of Mentioned Open-source Programs.

    Users And Buyers Out There In Everywhere Should NOT Use, Buy And To Try-out Nero Multimedia Suite, Since It's Very Bloated For Just Burning CDs And DVDs. Find Another Burning Software As An Alternative.

    "Keeps crashing. Useless software."

    February 24, 2012  |   By dallalmusic

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    Looks great. Great features - IF it would work. LOVED Nero 6. HATE Platinum 11.

    Cons

    Confusing user interface. Crashes every time I try to burn a DVD. Customer service is non-existent. Kwik Media crashes all the time. Want you to spend $2 an hour for their buggy Nero Platinum sorry excuse for software. Tried to get online help via email - they wouldn't respond except with 1 "solution" that I did carefully several times - it didn't work.

    Summary

    I thought Roxio was the worst a few years ago because it wouldn't do what it said either. Turns out they put out a bug fix but didn't tell everyone. Found out from a friend. Now this one MUST be the worst. 2 weeks of trying, reinstalling, trying to get technical support help. Forget it. I suggest find something else. ANYTHING ELSE!

    "Terrible value."

    November 19, 2011  |   By lucid oldie

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    The photo handling is good.

    Cons

    You click on burn now nothing happens. You click on another burn symbol and it works. I tried backing up a single almost 9 GB file expecting it to span over two DVD's and the program got to 71% and freezes. I used "Back It Up" to save my media to an external hard drive and disconnected the drive after the back up finished. Next thing I know, Nero ate my hard drive space by creating a backup on my main hard drive. I didn't want that to happen, it just did it without permission. You have to watch out as to how many backup "jobs" you create because it will run them all simultaneously.
    Some functions seem to be hard to find like audio editing.

    Summary

    I'd just like someone to create a simple back up system. Something like 5 buttons Full, Differential, Incrimental, Single/Multiple Files, My Libraries. Another 4 buttons Hard Drive, External HD, DVD/CD with automatic spanning, Blu-Ray.
    There must be other programs that are better than this Suite.

    Updated on Nov 19, 2011

    Another thing is that a back up disk doesn't seem to be available except for the first time you go to purchase. So burn the Download or risk losing the software. Extended download services are a rip off IMHO.

    Updated on Dec 14, 2011

    I received a Newsletter from Nero asking for a Review, which I promply provided and I gave it a 3 out of 5 star rating. This was not published on their website. However I noticed that someone else had given it a bad Review due to their non refund policy. Today, I went back into the Review section to see if I had been published. No, and the other bad review had been "removed" so it seems that they will only publish 4 and 5 Star Reviews which is outright deception on Nero's part.

    "Nero 11 installation problem"

    November 18, 2011  |   By fuvlaun

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    This is a problem. When installation has to install adobe flash player, it gives an error message if you have a newer version of the flash player already installed, Even if you uninstal the flashplayer, that's where it remains and does not install any further.
    Fix: download the updated trial version, but can't seem to find the complete suite trial version whish is almos 1 Gb of size. only the Nero 11 of abt 341 Mb. It seems ridiculouse. What now?

    Cons

    It's my money and I need it now.

    "Does not work on XP"

    November 17, 2011  |   By TexasSkunk

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    There is nothing good I can say about this product as it pertains to use on an XP platform.

    Cons

    Cannot even recognize the DVD drives on my Dell XPS 400 machine running XP Professional. 3.19GHz processor with 4 GB RAM. Customer Tech support is a joke unless you are prepared to pay $1.29 for some nitwit in India to try and help. Of course he/she repeats everything you say to run the bill up. Nero has refused to honor their 14 day refund policy in their own own Terms and Conditions. Said it does not apply to electronically downloaded products but no where is that exclusion stated in the T&C's. I have instructed my Credit Card company to stop payment and I have removed the software from my PC. Piece of garbage. There should be a Class Action suit against Nero for this kind of deception.

    Summary

    Find another product if you have XP. Do not buy Nero 11 Platinum and expect it to work and you will face an up hill battle to try and get a refund. The only thing worse than their product is their Customer/Tech Service. I will post additional as things go along in my battle for reimbursement.

    Updated on Nov 21, 2011

    Well, Good News: I found an old copy of Nero 7 Deluxe laying around and loaded it. All apps and sub-apps work with no problem on XP. My TV tuner that has not worked for years under Media Edition even came back to life! I confronted Nero with this and they agreed to refund my Nero 11 Platinum price to my credit card. Took a lot of convincing but its hard to argue when confronted with demonstrable facts.

    "Not Ready for XP Prime Time Yet"

    November 11, 2011  |   By bearpuf

    Version: Nero Multimedia Suite 11 11.0.10700

    Pros

    The different modules open pretty fast. It's fun to read the hype and promises of what the program will do.

    Cons

    If you're looking to use the Nero Wave Editor in XP it will not work. After opening a mp3 file, editing it by changing any detail and then trying to save it Wave Editor crashes. When Wave Editor is re-opened all controls are missing. The menu bar is gone. Restarting the program does nothing to change the problem. Rebooting Windows offers no relief as well.
    I have been in touch with Nero support and they confirm the problem and say they have put their technicians on the project of finding a solution that they will patch in a future update. How long will that be they do not say. The problem does not happen if I install Nero 11 in Windows 7.
    Since I purchased this program mainly for burning CDs, DVDs and editing music files I'm pretty annoyed at not being able to use it for its intended purpose on my XP system. I actually installed Nero 11 on three separate XP computers running different hardware and the issue came up with Wave Editor each time.

    Summary

    If you're a Wave Editor user and expect enjoyment I would wait before purchasing Nero 11 until they've fixed the problem. No one appreciates spending $40+ for a software program that doesn't work as the manufacturer states. That includes me as well.
    I remember reading once that Microsoft was fine to issue a new program if it was at least 80% running. When I first read that I was pretty amazed that a company would think that way.I have more difficulty with Nero that issued a new version of their burning rom claiming that their Wave Editor works fine in XP and it crashes on use when editing a mp3 file. Over the last six or more years I've come to depend on Wave Editor comparably to getting a decent cup of coffee in the morning, and writing this review is hardly $40 worth of satisfaction.

    Updated on Nov 11, 2011

    When and if Nero fixes the problem I will be more than satisfied to update my review. Until then I'll hope for at least a decent cup of coffee and continue to use Nero 7 for audio editing.
