Editors' Review

+

To create ISO files to burn in Windows, you need a third-party tool like PowerISO. PowerISO boasts single-click ISO extraction, Blu-ray compatibility, and the ability to edit ISO files directly. It also rips and burns audio CDs, compresses files, creates bootable USB drives, and more.

Pros

Windows integration: PowerISO's setup options include file associations, autostart on boot, shell menu integration, and the ability to create up to 23 virtual drives. Changes require a reboot.

No-nonsense layout: PowerISO's user interface isn't flashy, but it's efficient, well rendered, and perfectly suited for the job.

Virtual drive manager: Right-clicking the Virtual Drive Manager in the system tray let us quickly unpack and mount ZIP, RAR, 7Z, and ISO files; set the number of virtual drives; open PowerISO; view Help; and more.

Reliable: If you've ever turned blank discs into drink coasters with a bad ISO file or inadequate burning software, a premium tool like PowerISO can help earn its keep with fewer failures.

Cons

Costs money: PowerISO isn't expensive for premium software, but plenty of free tools do a perfectly good job, too.

Bottom Line

PowerISO is definitely a top choice for creating and burning ISO files in Windows. You get what you pay for in performance, reliability, and extras, but whether PowerISO is for you might depend on how often you create ISO files and burn discs. If you only burn a disc now and then, you might want to try a free tool first. For "frequent fryers," PowerISO might be a bargain.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of PowerISO 6.0. The trial version has limited functionality.

"Crapware Installer"

January 03, 2016  |  By JoeDoe1980

2016-01-03 03:33:20  |  By JoeDoe1980

 |  Version: PowerISO 6.4

Pros

This program was good now its loded with crapware

Cons

If you decide to install this be ready to hurdle the numerous crapware installers loaded into the setup file. There are better programs elsewhere. Personally I would stay away. Used to be a good program until they loaded all the crapware into it's installer.

Summary
