4.0 out of 5 stars A burning star, 20 Dec. 2012
This review is from: NERO 12 Platinum (PC) (CD-ROM)
NERO has always been brilliant for burning discs and this latest incarnation is no different. You can burn anything, including Blu Rays and edit/playback through the software. It is the best burning software on the market and at the heart of this suite. The other offerings seem a bit tacked-on and don't integrate with one another. Video editing is average and the recovery of lost or corrupted files is merely average too. A rather handy feature of Nero is the ability to save mirror images of your hard drive to an external drive or dvd roms. The backing-up of data this way helps take the heat off should anything go wrong with your pc and is a fantastic tool. All in all this software comes highly recommended but mainly for the burning facilities. If you are buying it mainly for some of the other features then I suggest you look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for burning, 20 Dec. 2012
This review is from: NERO 12 (PC) (CD-ROM)
NERO has always been brilliant for burning discs and this latest incarnation is no different. You can burn anything, including Blu Rays but sadly you will need to download a £20 plug-in if you wish to play any Blu Ray discs through the software (*providing you have the hardware to do so). If editing and playback of Blu Ray discs is a must then you should purchase the Platinum version of this software straight out of the blocks. Another handy feature of this basic offering is the ability to save mirror images of your hard drive to an external drive or dvd roms. The backing-up of data this way helps take the heat off should anything go wrong with your pc and is a fantastic tool. All in all this software comes highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and dependable security for your pc, 20 Dec. 2012
A tried and trusted name in the internet security marketplace, Kasperksy's offerings are usually first rate and this is no different. An antivirus is an antivirus, there is little new here except the addition of a 'safe money' banking security feature. This adds an extra degree of protection when paying for items online. Aside from that new feature it's a pretty standard offering but from one of the most trusted brands in the business. A little slow to load and hogs the system a bit on deep scans but a recommended purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars A 'different' type of lamp, 14 Nov. 2012
With 64 different colours this is a great value for money offering from Philips. It isn't really designed to be the main light in a room, it is more of a 'mood' enhancement such as candles etc. As it's so small it can be relatively well hidden and you can leave it on one particular colour setting or set an automatic mode which cycles through the whole spectrum. As others have noted, the lack of a remote control really makes this product suffer. The more expensive Philips lamps do come with a remote and they are all the better for it. This lamp of course does still do the trick but selecting different colours is a pain. However, it is cheap and cheerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 14 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Roxio Creator NXT (PC) (DVD-ROM)
I have always liked Roxio's products and this is no exception. The cd/dvd burning facility is the best in the business in my opinion and coupling this with HD video editing, photo editing and music editing makes for a top package. Unlike a lot of the competition, this software doesn't seem bloated or slow and it hasn't crashed on me either. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but limited, 14 Nov. 2012
The price is very attractive compared to the other more professional accounting software packages but don't make the mistake of thinking that this is all you need. There are several highly useful and often necessary features left off this entry level offering. Having said that, it does have its place and if you are a sole trader or have just started a very small business then this will assist you greatly....but you will still need an accountant to finish things off.

There is no VAT management and obviously no payroll facility but basic expenses, forecasts and quotes/invoicing can be handled very easily. The screen layout and user interface is incredibly well designed making everything a doddle. You can learn 'on the job' without the need for a thick user manual. Ultimately there is nothing here which couldn't be achieved by someone with a decent knowledge of Excel and Word but the fact it's all in one place and simple to use is the selling point. I would be tempted to get the Pro version if you want to minimise your accountant's work each year but as an introduction to home accounting this is a very worthy offering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quickbooks Premier with 12 months' payroll subscription, 16 Oct. 2012
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Intuit's range of accountancy products for small businesses is legendary and the 2013 products add a new lustre to a familiar line. This is still the same easy to use and powerful product, just with a more modernised interface. With VAT returns, support for multiple currencies, budget & cashflow forecasts, stock control & back orders and free helpline assistance for 30 days after registration, it's hard to imagine what else Intuit could bring the table. Well they could include a 12-month subscription to their payroll service and here it is...
You can pay employees and run payroll as many times as you like with no extra charge. Overtime and bonuses can be applied with no external assistance and then emailed. Payslips can be printed in the office direct, this really is a simple and effective system. This works, it works well and you have the company's support for a whole month after purchase which is certainly long enough to allow you to get to grips with the product. As such, I can thoroughly recommend it.
