Wouldn't Buy It

Anonymous, Newegg
18 March 2011
  • Pros: Locks computer up, program crashes, Adobe installs 5 programs that run constantly in the back ground and constantly query the internet. That's the good part. They had a trial version which seemed to work.
  • Cons: Help is so disorganized it will take you hours to find an answer remotely relevant to your concerns. Help has not been updated for Premiere Elements 9 so searches bring up answers about versions 6, 7, 8 and then you can spend hours picking through it to see if it still applies to version 9. Maybe...

  • Summary: I head Premiere Elements 4 and only bought this because 4 started having some problems too. I really liked the features in 4 and had high hopes for 9. I'm now looking elsewhere at non-Adobe solutions.
  • Pros: The price was nice, with the rebate and all, but....
  • Cons: ...the software didn't work. I tried on XP and Win7 several times and it clocked 100% CPU after running 5 minutes. I could never get it to do anything useful before it red-lined.

  • Summary: Good luck trying to get your rebate thats a joke on you of course .
  • Pros: It sucks it not worth buying
  • Cons: You need this ridiculous software like a hole in your head this is basically one of the software you get when you buy any camera you know the one you probably never even open . To complicated for regular movie shoots plus not enough features for worth while movies.
