What's your opinion on Nero Ultra 6?

I've downloaded the trial of the newest Nero and like it quite a bit, but haven't really gotten too deep into all the different options (simply because there's sooo many!).

It seems this is a very complete package covering just about everything DVD/CD you can think of: burning, capturing, authoring, virtual drives, mp3 related, etc.

Has anyone played with this enough to give some opinions on the overall program before I shell out the cash? I know there's plenty of software out there that does what this does (a lot is freeware too), but it's just cool to have it all in one place.

For what I use it for I think I preferred Nero 5. A little cleaner interface and functions were more where I would expect them to be.

I also don't like its (both versions 5 & 6) restriction on a greater than 16 character volume label for UDF discs (needed for large files). Roxio's Easy CD Creator allows 32 characters and I'm forced to use it when I need a more descriptive volume label.

I much prefer Nero 5's standard application interface that just provides options and allows me to select what I need.

The interface on Nero 6 is a little too helpful - like the overly enthusiastic salesman who hovers over your shoulder saying, "What were you looking to do today? Can I help you with that? Do you want me to tell you about our services?"

I like Nero 6 as much as I liked Nero 5, but I don't use the new Start Smart feature. Like David wrote, it just tries too hard. I stick with the Nero Express nterface and switch to the full Nero when necessary.

I do like that the icons are easier to see and figure out on the new version.

I have the OEM version of NERO 6 (if there's a difference). I hated it and went back to 5. I couldn't figure out how to do non-compliant VCDs with higher than normal bitrates in 6 but it was easy in 5.

I liked 5 better as well. The new look of 6 makes me think it was made to help people that really didn't know how to use CD burning software.

I got the oem version for cheap. I think I liked version 5 a bit better although I am sticking with 6 for now to see if I end up liking it better over time.

It generally isn't free unless you got it with a CD/DVD-RW drive. And then it would be specific for that one drive.

Unless I'm missing something it's not nice n free and cool. My copy cost $40 after rebates and I'd hate to think I overpaid for a legal version of it.

Nero 6 is Nero 5 w/ candy coated buttons and a bunch of freeware you can get from doom9.net, and charge novices a load of money for.

Nero 5 is solid and gets the job done. If I wanted candy coated buttons, I'd turn on my Mac.
