Nero 9 is Free after Rebate at Frys.com (Free Shippin). There are two rebates and they are being handled by status-now.com (http://www.status-now.com/). I am posting this as a bargain opportunity for those interested in this product.
$50.00 Mail in Rebate valid from 2008-11-26 to 2008-12-04
$20.00 Competitive Upgrade Rebate valid from 2008-09-29 to 2009-09-28
I thought long and hard about purchasing this for myself as I am a long-time Nero user and have never been denied a rebate (although perseverance was required on more than one occasion). However, the Official Nero Forum continues to show there are many irate users of all versions of Nero 9. For those who have Nero 8, there does not appear to be any reason to upgrade to this version and considerable reasons to avoid this new version. Still, there may be CDF members who will take the plunge.
