CD and DVD authoring software: MyDVD Studio Deluxe 6.0

MyDVD Studio Deluxe 6.0 is ideal for those who prefer to spend time sharing videos, photos and music on DVD and CD, rather than wrestling with complex software. It is available in several flavours - the more you pay, the more features you get.

The product we tested, MyDVD Studio Deluxe 6.0, adds CD ripping and burning, CD/DVD copying and disc labelling to features available in the lesser versions, such as CD/DVD authoring tools and playback software. And if you shell out for the high-end MyDVD Studio Deluxe Suite 6.0, you get Sonic's BackUp MyPC.

Studio Deluxe 6.0 contains many enhancements to make authoring easier, including an integrated interface, freeform button placement, encoding for up to four hours of video on a single-layer DVD, and widescreen support, as well as space for up to 1000 photographs per slideshow and better audio control.

It also has a fit-to-DVD option and supports dual-layer discs. Unfortunately, the video-editing tools are basic, with no timeline. Audio support is also weak and DVD-titling options are limited.

This program will be a good buy for computer novices, but more tech-savvy users should consider Pinnacle Studios' Studio 9.0 for video-editing and Roxio's Creator 7.0 for a more complete authoring solution.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
