Pros: Great new updates from CS3 that I was used to using, The 3d function for Photoshop is vastly improved. Illustrator has a couple nifty improvements also. Acrobat seems to be cut down. Most of the programs included have improvement to them, coming from CS3 is a pretty big leap in functionality. Coming from CS 4 or 5 though its not that big of a leap. Newegg has it cheaper by 300 bucks compared to the Adobe store. 64 Bit for most programs is nice. Speedgrade is a nifty addition.
Cons: Lack of Director, OK I get it they want to kill Director and have us use Flash instead, I LIKE Director for quick kiosk type projects, much faster to develop than in flash but I'm not gonna pay an extra 1k for it when it should be included in the master collection. Not all programs are 64 bit yet. For the price and compilation of programs it would be nice to have a couple of extra font packages or plugins included with it.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very nice Upgrade from CS3, so so or not really needed if you have CS4 or especially CS5. They do add a couple of nice programs to the mix, Speedgrade is a very nifty tool for adjusting color gradients for video. Prelude is nice for organizing your clips.Just wish they would include Director in the master collection.
