Looks good. Better than the past couple.

Do people use Toast anymore ? I've got Toast 10 but I haven't used it for a long time. Is version 11 worth it ?

I didn't even know there was a version 11 already.

I haven't downloaded the last 3 updates for version 10 yet. [rant] they really need to put in a self updater in the app, not require customers to create an account to download an update.[/rant]

here is a comparison of the recent products.

Be careful here. The version in the bundle is NOT the PRO version!

I got burned in the previous bundle, which I bought to clean up audio files from vinyl, only to find out that the SoundSoap application is not included.

I ditched Toast a long time ago because it made coaster after coaster, even with the latest update, even trying different media, standing well back and not even breathing near it. I estimate that eventually 80-90% of my burns resulted in coasters. In frustration and on the exact same computer, with the same (generic) blank DVDs and the same OS, I ran Burn (http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net). No more coasters, no more "sense error" failures. Problems vanished, never looked back. In 12 months I've not had a single failure, probably burned 150 discs in that time. Hybrids, copies, image files...

Considering a 33MB, free, open-source app bests it at performing its most rudimentary function (burn. a. disc.), Toast is a bloated, buggy piece of garbage and I'll never go near it ever again.

Could be your hardware. I've been using Toast since v5 and coasters have been a rarity for me. I only use Verbatim discs. Most discs out there are made by a handful of manufacturers and even "brand name" ones can be the same garbage as the .02 generic brand. Also have to make sure the discs are fresh as they do "expire."

Of course I will agree that Toast's usefulness 4 month toward 2012 is limited because DVD-R, CD-R is one foot in the grave, but generally I have no complaints with it.
