1 out of 5 eggs Nero fraught with problems 01/01/2014

This review is from: Nero 2014 Platinum - Download

Pros:

Box looks nice. Claims to do a lot.

Cons:

Nero 14 Platinum is a poorly prepared product that is full of bugs preventing full performance and functionality. In Win 8.1 64 bit Nero 14 Platinum can only be used to play standard DVD content, not AVCHD or Blue Ray, even one’s that were burned in Nero. If you install this program, be sure to immediately get the program up dates.

For DVD authoring, it is similarly full of bugs and poorly written code, such that its Blue Ray DVD rendering is chock full of artifacts and blurring. It is so fraught with buggy code and headaches that you will wish you never bought this product. Nero simply has over focused on whiz bang sales gimmicks and profits rather than fully prepare their product for real world use.

To address the voluminous problems and make a lot of money, Nero (which vigorously evades consumer complaints and input) has teamed up with iTOK and Trend Micro anti virus to get you to buy $110 in on-line computer cleaning and that anti virus, just to make Nero 14 functional! The iTOK tech got one part of Nero 14 to work, but Nero 14 is so poorly implemented that one must question the programs usefulness, even if you get it for next to nothing with rebates. iTOK also contracts you to an expensive $20 per month computer maintenance fee, each and every month. The iTOK tech used freeware programs such as CC cleaner, thisisudax.org, and Tool Bar Cleaner.

In DVD burning, Nero has continued its’ old DVD menus and added some new “3D” menu’s. The problem here is that Nero’s “Animated Menu’s” and “3D” menu’s are really just video files that play on DVD start up. Little can be done with these. The “3D” menus are crude and look like they were meant to impress those in their tween years. They are not professional level menu’s. Nero needs to actually test their product and make it work as claimed.

Other Thoughts:

In sum, Nero 14 Platinum is not recommendable at this time. Upgrade from Nero 12 Platinum is not recommended.
