Lots of features but missing a lot of premium features,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nero 2014 (PC) (CD-ROM)
I purchased this as part of the Amazon Black Friday deals for a reasonable price.
In the box you get a DVD case, with the installation disk and the product code on. It also came with a one year subscription for the ‘Good’ service of Nero Backitup.
Installation was simple, and once installed it proceeded to perform an update of all of the programs. I am running on Windows 8.1 and had no issues.
It comes with all the usual programs associated with Nero (Video, Converter, Media Manager etc). So far I have used the majority of these and have had no issues. Very simple to use, navigate round and they operate very smoothly.
I have installed Nero Backitup which is a utility which lets you define a backup of a folder or number of folders and a location (either external drive, NAS drive or online storage). It can do a one way sync (either copy from left to right) or two way sync (keeping both sides of the backup in sync).
My only complaint is that it is missing a number of templates / themes which show up as available but as soon as you click on them it asks you to upgrade to Nero Platinum for an additional £19.95. This is particular the case the Nero Video (where themes, transitions etc are very limited). In addition, Nero Video seems to perform slower than Windows Movie Player when importing and playing back media files.
Overall for the price a useful set of utilities which do what they say.
