2.0 out of 5 stars Worse than version 10 October 21, 2011
I've used Nero since version 6 and have always found it to be a pretty good, but not great, suite of products. Burning ROM has always been excellent and the "recode" tool has always been superior to anything else I could find. The other Nero tools have always been meh in my opinion.

I personally am not happy with Nero 11. On the surface they try to make it look like they improved the Recode product, but it is actually less flexible and does a worse job than Recode 10. If you go to the Nero web site you will see a lot of complaints that they have moved in the wrong direction with this particular tool. Also, the Nero Video product (in version 10 was called Nero Vision) blows up performing operations that worked for me in version 10. I am running a powerful machine, Windows 7 x64 with all latest patches, so there is no reason that version 11 should have issues when 10 did not.

I contacted Nero to see if I could get a refund, and there answer was just "No per our Terms and Conditions". They are a German company and thus do not have to abide by US laws, at least not if you purchase directly from them and download the software. I searched on this topic and found similar complaints on the web. They have my money now and I guess there's nothing I can do about that, but this is the last Nero purchase I will ever make.

I'm honestly surprised by all of the 4 and 5 start reviews for this product because it really doesn't deserve such high praise. If you want a whole suite of just OK tools, most of which aren't necessary if you have Vista or Windows 7 (such as their version of media center, their version of windows player, their version of back up, etc), then this may be a package for you. For me, this was my last Nero purchase.

ARRRGH. As the happy owner/user of many previous versions of Nero, I finally bit at one of their e-mail offers to get Nero 11. The first mistake was my own fault - I had the version of 10 that included Blu Ray playback. I purchased the wrong version and had a really rough time finding contact information to fix the mis-purchase. Their cust service person said I was stuck with the version I purchased (no refunds or changes) but that I could buy an upgrade to get the version I wanted. Back to their page and completed the purchase. Still waiting on something other than my purchase confirmation for the upgrade... No new key yet.

Maybe the upgrade applies to my current key? Tried installing the "regular" version of Nero 11 - it's a very long install, only to find that the "updates are available" was endlessly blinking in the notification area. Trying to run their updater failed with the program just flashing and going nowhere. It's now uninstalled so I can begin the long process of trying to contact them again for a resolution.

Other advice from my experience: you must be logged in as an administrator to have a chance to install the software. It simply won't install if you are logged in as a regular user. There are no prompts from the Nero Installation to let you know of this issue.

Update: there is an issue with the Nero auto-update through at least two different versions of their software including what is the newest as of 12-13-2011 on their site. The update process tries, hangs, resets itself, tries... an endless useless loop.
The first Nero rep was unaware of this issue. The latest rep is sending an e-mail with steps for a work around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nero's Evolution October 19, 2011
The new Nero has hit the shelves. The world's most successful CD/DVD burning suite has experiened yet another reincarnation, while trying to evolve into the ultimate digital experience suite.

1. RELIABLE TECHNOLOGY: I have friends still using versions 6 and 7, so that should give you an idea of how good software engineering has been at Nero - if the product still works well after all those years.
2. NBR - NO 1: Nero Burying ROM - the heart and soul of the digital suite - is as good as ever, and with the addition of Nero DiscSpan and SecurRom is currently offering more than any other CD/DVD authoring suite on the planet.
3. REVAMPED: Nero Video (formerly known as Nero Vision) has been revamped and continually improved since verion 10 with background editing, Express Editing and Storyboarding tools, Prosumer workflow on demand, etc. and will not leave the user wanting.
4. HELP AVAILABLE: The complete workflow has been improved with help and explanations at your fingertips (something missing in the past).
5. A SENSIBLE APPROACH: Nero Burning ROM, Nero Video and Nero BackItUp are sold separately, so you can pick the product you need at the optimum price, or buy the whole package in Nero v11 Platinum. Offering those applications separately means that Nero has finally recognized the fact that not all components in the bundle may be described as equally successful - and has done what would be right for customers.

1. PLAYBACK AND VIEWER ISSUES: Since v10 Nero have decided to drop Showtime - their dedicated DVD player, which may not have been the best on the market, but was nevertheless quite useful. Now Kwik media has been introduced, but it leaves much to be desired with regards to speed and usability.
