Part 4. Buy Advice and Conclusion

Among the five best DVD making software for Mac, Cisdem DVDBurner provides the best mix of value and performance. It is more intuitive, easy-to-use to make video to DVD without any loss, excellent video editing and DVD menus functions are bonus points. Some users would not take Toast 15 Titanium into consideration, it is much expensive and overloaded with fully suite functions some of which would be shelved aside, and it takes larger hard drive space up to 1GB, which is not good for Mac running. Express Burn is an easy-to-use tool, but compared to Cisdem DVDBurner, it has room to make more improvements. They reason why I put two free Mac DVD maker software in the list, they are for who want to make DVD without paying, DVD Styler and Burn can meet the basic burning requirements.

In all, the main items we look the value of compositive features during our reviews, like output quality, DVD making speed, some bonus features like edit, menu, affordable price, as well as quick and reliable company support.
