My Verdict

gBurner is not simply a disk burner. It has many features unlike common disk burners. While it does not have a dazzling interface like Ashampoo Burning Studio it is very efficient in what it does. I like its ability to convert image file types, to convert non-bootable disk to bootable disk, to form bootable image in an USB. The fact that it offers lifetime licensing makes it a worthy software to have.
