The Nero 10 incorporates three major functions into a single package - a burning tool, a backup and restore feature and a video editor.
Long setup and simple-to-handle GUI
Since this is a complex program, the application takes a while to install. During this step, it offers to install the Ask Toolbar on your system, but this is optional. On the other hand, installing Microsoft Silverlight is mandatory.
Several long minutes later, the full or custom installation should be complete. Each piece of software found in this suite has a very attractive and intuitive interface, so that all types of users can work with it.
Backup and restore capabilities
Nero BackItUp & Burn allows you to back up your files, folders and system information, as well as restore them with just a few clicks. It is possible to opt between automatic, manual or drive backup, verification, and task overview.
In addition to that, you can create a disaster recovery disc, as well as synchronize data. For instance, an automatic backup takes a long time to initiate, but also to finalize.
Manage, edit and play multimedia files
Nero MediaHub offers you direct access to music, photos and videos found in the library, while you can also play audio and video files, as well as create slideshows and playlists.
With Nero Vision you can create a movie or a slideshow, capture video to hard drive, and make a DVD, AVCHD, Blu-Ray or CD. Once again, each task takes a long time to load and complete, yet it is important to understand that they are done in a professional manner.
For instance, creating your own movies allows you access to video editing tools such as sharpen and blur, pan and zoom, shadow and edges, creative colors, multiline text, and various transitions.
Burning information to discs
Nero Burning ROM is as professional as ever. Here you can create an audio CD, mixed mode CD, CD Extra, DVD, and others. The burning process takes a little while to complete, according to the writing speed you have set, yet you should know it also depends on your computer’s performance amount of data to be processed.
Performance and conclusion
The amount of resources required in order to properly run this program vary from low to high, depending on a number of factors, most of which were previously discussed. All tasks are usually completed in a pretty decent amount of time, and without popping up errors, crashing or hanging. The interface is accessible to all user categories.
Overall, Nero 10 proves to deserve all the credit it has been given all these years, and is still one of the best burning tools out there, packed with an array of options which can keep users busy for quite a while.
