SONY Vegas Pro Premium

4 out of 5 eggs Good and bad. 12/24/2013

This review is from: SONY Vegas Pro Premium

Pros: I've have used Vegas since before it was a Sony product. For what it is, it does a good job. It has it's share of idiosyncrasies like any involved software, but for the most part, there are workarounds. I also own Premiere and maybe a half-dozen other editors and use each as needed for what I am trying to accomplish. Sony has it "place in the sun" for much of it.

Cons: Crashes. All editors crash, everyone. Vegas is not different, except a number of the crashes are or could be prevented with a bit tighter coding. Things like rendering, pre-rendering and even playback cause crashes. Not to hard to find out why, should be not to hard to fix them. But, Sony is an awfully large company and Vegas is an awfully small part of it. So, it sets on the back burning most of the time. When it was introduce, I don't know, maybe 15 years ago, it was a rocket ship compared to everything else out there. Now, it waddles along, chirping here, chirping there, and you make do. If Sony wanted it, it could be the #1 semi-pro editor. But, somehow I don't think that is in Sony's plans. Too bad to.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much said everything I want to.

Pros: Manufacturer Response:

ASUS Customer Loyalty

Cons: Just to replay to the manufacturer's response. I RMA'd that card, it was suppose to be fixed, but came back doing the same thing. Needing another card ASAP I opted to do an expedited used video card replacement. There was a $600 ping/hold put on my credit card maybe 2 weeks ago, but it's off and no card has been sent. It's hard to find the status on this online, but if I did find the right webpage, it seems it wll be late this month before it ships. I suppose that's the reason the hold on my credit card is off. BTW, I put this in the cons portion because not to many people would see this as a "Pro" statement... Would you?

Other Thoughts: First, why do I need to have a hold put on my credit card anyways? You had my video card once, you botched the repair, you should be begging me to let you send me another one. In fact, you should be sending me a new one. OK forget that. But why is there a $600 (extortionist amount BTW) hold anyway on a used card? And why is it still not shipped? It's suppose to kind be a fast thing I thought. My feeling is, if you hurt me, your hurt your whole customer base. Not a good thing to do in business. Your customer is suppose to be your most important asset.

Yes, I am tired of Asus and companies in general who think customers are a problem and treat them that way. It's a good bet when I do (if I do) get this used card, it will be a bad one too. Don't worry, I'll post back here an let you know for sure.

Pros: I buy alot of flash card memory for various camera use. I need fast transfer, as some of my cameras shoot 4K video. Benchmarked this right at it's advertized speed using ATTO Bench32, which is always right on the money it seems. So, nothing bad, only good and at the price I paid, I would say Excellent too.

Cons: None yet. It takes awhile to see a problem with flash memory. Depends on what it is being used in and how hot the device runs.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had bought a few more.
