Is this an improvement over earlier versions? I don't think so.,
This review is from: NERO 12 Platinum (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Some of the earlier versions of this software were actually rather good, and because I haven't upgraded for some years, I decided to give Nero 12 Platinum a try. I have to say, I wish I hadn't. Whilst the earlier version I have launched and ran without any problems, Nero 12 took an entire afternoon to load, whilst constantly telling me to check for updates. I mean, why should this brand new product need so many updates for heavens sake?? Finally I had the product loaded up and running (thanks largely to considerable help from a more IT savvy friend who managed to locate and
download some of the files it was asking for). Firstly, this is not as easy to use as I had hoped. In fact it is very involved and rather infuriating at times. I've only managed to use some of the same basic audio/video burning tasks that my earlier version of Nero contained, and I received a number of different error messages in the process. I have decided not to try any of the more advanced functions because Blu-Ray discs do not come cheap, and the reliability of this product in undertaking even simple tasks does not inspire confidence. I would not recommend this software to anyone who has an earlier version, and if you do want to upgrade then buy something different.
