"Adobe Premiere Elements 9 -- which brings Premiere Elements to the Mac platform for the first time -- is a head-on competitor for Apple's Final Cut Express."

"Premiere Elements then provides the best of both - seriously sophisticated editing capabilities, with automated assists to do much of the heavy lifting."
Videomaker, Doug Dixon, October 21, 2010
"Certainly, for Mac users wanting to get in on Adobe Premiere Elements or those who are just getting started, this is a no brainer. For Windows users, all-in-all if you find the new features useful then it makes it a tempting upgrade and one I can recommend."

"Premiere Elements 8 is an extremely good value for a basic video editor."
MicroFilmmaker Magazine, Jeremy Hanke, February 1, 2010
"For the experienced editor, Adobe Premiere Elements 8 provides plenty of opportunity for play. The software’s tool and option prowess means you can tinker in extended and unique ways. What's particularly impressive, however, is that navigating the program isn’t complicated by the added features. We found the software to be highly intuitive."

"I liked the new features in Adobe Premiere Elements 8 and for those (on a budget or new to video editing) it is a very good program, especially since you can work in both automatic and manual modes."
