My Review 

Does not function as well as older versions. Crashes are far too numerous, and lockups are a constant problem. Noise removal portion is inferior to X2. Can't think of any reason why I would purchase again. It's utter junk. I wish I had not given my old X2 version away. Would prefer a negative rating for this product.

Best Attribute: 

None - X2 was superior

Worst Attribute: 

Constant crashes. Constant lockups. Total lack of support by Corel.

Was PaintShop a good value for the price paid? 

Absolutely NOT.

3-5 years

Tips and Advice:
