Burn Dvds Onto Cds, Without a DVD Burner: a Review of Dvdx Gold

By: Ethan Parker

Imagine my surprise when I learned you could burn DVD movies and Playstation games, WITHOUT a DVD burner. Sound too good to be true? Sound like something really expensive?

Nope. It's real, and quite affordable--as little as $19.95.

The product that helps you do this is one that's become quite popular in its category: DVDx Gold. You may have heard of it; it's known as the standard for burning DVDs without a CD burner. But is it really?

Well, compared to other products I've tried, I'd say yes. Not only is it a trustworthy product, but DVDx Gold, which you can learn more about , is quite affordable and very user-friendly. You don't have to pay hundreds of dollars like some software products (do you hear me, Adobe Studio?), but you just pay based on how long you want to use it: one year, two years, or lifetime. I like the fact that they let you choose the price based on your usage, rather than paying loads for a product you may only need to use occasionally.

The Bad

Like all my reviews, I have to show the bad. In this case, there isn't much except the fact that DVDx Gold will really slow down your computer when it's in use. But that's pretty normal; even the reliable CD-burning software, Nero, brings most computers to a standstill. This one isn't quite as bad; it just requires a lot of RAM as burning DVDs to CDs is a complex operation.

Other than that, I recommend giving DVDx a whirl.

Try It, Or Buy It?

No doubt about it: if you're someone who doesn't have a DVD burner, and wants to burn DVDs without buying an expensive DVD burner, . If you're not sure if it's for you, you'll only be out $20 for a year's usage. Is that really so bad?

I don't think so, and I think you'll agree once you've used this fantastically original application.
