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.

Also rebates through status-now.com are very iffy in my experience. Last rebate submitted to status-now.com said to allow 8 weeks, but no rebate yet after 14 weeks and counting with option only to check status that shows “being processed” and with no option to submit inquiry. I called the manufacturer, CP Technologies, to inquire about status, and they were supposed to email reason for rebate delay the day I called with no response yet after 1 week. Besides Nero 6 still does all I need it to do, and I’ve read bad experiences with later Nero versions.

I looks as if the 50.00 rebate is good and so is the 20.00 rebate. You have to lay out 70.00 bucks and hope you get a check in the mail LOL.

Interesting that they extended the dates (and updated the rebate form as well).

It is a gamble but think of the money we can save with the OMax coupon.

I tried the Nero 9 demo and it worked better than 8 ever did, although I still don’t like the Vista-ish look for the DVD menus. I will probably keep using 7 for my ‘everyday’ stuff, but I found recently that 7 wouldn’t do format conversions (NSTC/PAL) for my projects. So I may have to use 9 for situations where a format change is required, but will stick with 7 for everything else.

Nero 8 went overboard on the Vista-ish look and effects which make me gag, plus it simply didn’t function for many of my video files. I would start a file processing and after a few minutes Nero 8 would simply quit and go back to the “menu” screen with no message or explanation of any kind.

7 has been the most stable and usable for me for some time now. I first tried the Nero 6 suite that came with my Memorex dvd burner several years ago, and found it to be totally non-functional for making actual dvds that would play in regular dvd players. The discs it produced were not recognized by dvd players at all, not even coming up with a menu screen.

I then purchased the full boxed version so I could get online updates/upgrades. The boxed version at first made discs that would come up with a menu screen but the video would not play. Later on they got it to where the videos would play, but there were occasional problems with sound/picture sync.

Version 7 cleared up basically all of those problems, and at first it worked for the format conversions too. I’m not sure exactly which upgrade “broke” that function, because I hadn’t needed to use it for some time. But I have the latest upgrade of 7 available from Nero, and in that version it doesn’t work.
