PowerISO is an application designed to create disk images. Developed by PowerISO Computing, the software application burns images to both CDs and DVDs.

Pros

  • One of the key pros associated with PowerISO is its straightforward interface. The interface is self explanatory and simple to use. The interface includes a delineated set of buttons that run across the top of the screen, which contains the basic navigational functions.
  • Another benefits of PowerISO is that it can burn and saves images into three different file alternatives: ISO, DAA and BIN. This flexibility is valuable depending on user needs and goals.
  • PowerISO is a comprehensive product. As well as burning images to CDs and DVDs, the application is also capable of hosting virtual drives and audio formats. As is the case with the CD and DVD burning capacities, the functions are also quite basic -- but designed to meet the essential needs of most users.
  • PowerISO is compatible with many different Windows operating systems. This includes Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
  • Along with the standard burning feature, PowerISO comes complete with an editing tool and the ability to encrypt, split and convert ISO files. As is the case with the burning feature, these tools are both easy to access and use. Even users with limited experience undertaking these types of tasks can do so with ease with PowerISO.

Cons

  • PowerISO is a basic application. It does not include some of the more advanced bells and whistles often found on some other similar applications. However, despite this, most users find the functionality associated with PowerISO to be more than adequate at meeting all their image burning needs.
  • The free, trial version of PowerISO does have another limitation. It restricts users to burning images that are 300M or less. The restriction does not exist on the paid-for version of the product. Otherwise, the free, trial version of PowerISO is the same as the paid-for derivation.
