The good: Real-time previews; new audio plug-ins; great title and graphics tools; improved DV device control; comes with 90 Adobe PostScript fonts.
The bad: Mac audio plug-ins require rendering; no DVD-authoring program included for Mac version.
The bottom line: Adobe improves its popular midrange nonlinear video editor with real-time previewing, a new titling tool, audio effects, and DVD authoring.
Cons out-wiegh the Pros by a fair margin

Pros: Great features; lots of flexibility; once learned you'll never out-grow it
Cons: slow to learn, variety of bugs, missing applets, real-time play-back is unstable

Summary: Over-all.... if this app worked as demo'd in the total training video... it would be worth it... once you learned it... the sky is the limit... you would never need another.. unfortunatly... its glitches differ from the demo.. learning the work arounds is time consuming and should not be unecessary for a high-end app. like this... I made sure to purchase hardware off the Adobe compatibility list and many bugs still popped up... Authoring via DVDit... was total BS.... the applet never installed in the first place... P6.5 rendered as requested, saved the audio and video files, then stopped... Adobe is generally a good software MFR, there was really no excuse for those and the other bugs I found... normally I would just upgrade; in this case to Pro2.0, just because its an adobe product but you boys lost a customer on that release... sorry but two thumbs down... hope you fixed it all in Pro2.0
Unstable, Bloody unstable!
Pros: Good , intuitive interface
Cons: Unpredictable output quality, sound problems, Crashes all the time with Mac OSX only OSX app i've experienced with stability problems. Final Cut, here we come!
PRETTY GOOD WITH SOME FLAWS
Pros: fairly easy to learn the basics (although more difficult edits need the manual), great variety in transitions and effects, titles are much better than 6.0, potential is endless
Cons: crashes too much when timelines are full of difficult edits (may need to export to avi or mp2 and reimport clip so it doesn't crash), some effects are tricky to create, title creator is slow
Stay away from any Pinnacle product, even if bundled with Premiere
Cons: I went to install it, and Pinnacle sent out a copy of premiere 6.5 without a valid serial number. I called Adobe who told me to call Pinnacle and around and around we go!
Easy to Learn and Very Powerful

Summary: I Purchased Premiere 6.5 in a bundle with a 1394 Intrface card and cable at a great price and I am very pleased. I was easily able to put together my first 15-minute family video with titles, effects and an audio track on the first day. The documentation and CDRom-based training are excellent and way beyond what most companies provide.
Blows Final Cut out of the water!

Summary: I've been using this for a few months now, and I'm very impressed. Some interface improvements, much better program stability. The MPEG encoder is wonderful. Some minor problmes exist. Tends to crash (sometimes) when outputting a DV movie with a long file name. Other than that, I'd highly recommend it.
lots to learn

Summary: I'm a novice at video editing and was given Premiere 6.5. I bought a manual as the online help isn't much help to a newby. I caused the program to crash and trigger the Windows error reporting program simply by trying to re-name the "Bin" in the Project window. This triggered the "warning: program unstable" radar in my head so I save the project frequently. I also have Photoshop 6 and ImageReady and am eager to explore the combination possibilities, but there is so much to learn! But, in one day, I managed to edit a 10 minute movie, rearrange the clips in the Storyboard and Timeline, put titles and simple transition effects, export it to MPEG and burn a CD, so the program is pretty intuitive.
Great professional/prosumer package

Summary: If you're looking for a software package that doesn't require you to read a manual, Premiere might not be for you. When I got into digital video I ordered a free trial of Pinnacle Studio 8. I was able to jump right in and start editing. VERY easy to use. It soon became apparent that Studio 8 didn't have enough features for me. After some research I decided on buying Premiere through the software/hardware package Pyro Platinum DV. Premiere is about $600 for software alone from the Adobe web site, but I purchased the Pyro Platinum DV package for $250. This came with the full version for Premiere 6.5, a firewire card, Uled dvd program, and some other software. That doesn't make sense to me, but who am I to complain about a deal? This program WILL require some manual reading. There are a lot of tutorial sites on the internet, and all of them are well worth a look. Once the basics are down, and you begin to dive into the more complex functions of the program, you'll understand the hefty price tag. Many stability problems associated with Premiere are hardware related. If your computer isn't optimized for digital video editing, you'll run into problems. Also, if anybody is running Windows ME, they're just asking for trouble. I'm currently running Premiere 6.5 on XP with a 10 gig main drive and a 200 gig drive dedicated to DV. I have some slight stability problems, but I attribute that to my 447Mhz processor. I'm running it a bit under minimum specs.
Premiere is not consumer!

Summary: I started using Premiere the same time as Avid and I can say with absolute conviction that Premiere is by far the best system. Avid cornered the market years ago and so doesn't need to improve any of its features, so you'll notice a massive amount of things you can do in Premiere you can't do in Avid; e.g., extend an edit on the time line (particularly useful for voice sync). Avid is a fine editor but all the new features have been ignored and its too expensive, this is where Premiere and FinalCut Pro are leading the way. Vegas Video is a consumer product, Premiere is a professional product, years ago before video editing was so domestically popular you would choose Avid or Premiere nothing else came close, and the only thing that comes close now is FinalCut. Premiere was made and still is made for the industry home users simply can't appreciate the facilities and the design of premiere for professional video production. FinalCut Pro or Premiere, they have a steep learning curve but once you understand the logic of both systems you'll be able to do anything in seconds. Premiere was always a rival to Avid but never more so than now! By the way, Premiere is a Mac program. It’s not native to the PC.
Good features, solid improvement

Summary: Premiere's 6.5 upgrade might be its best improvement over its overly old looking interface yet. The real-time previews rival that of any Mac video editing software (Final Cut, iMovie) and depending on what operating system you have (I use XP Pro), the stability has improved a great deal as well. The new titling utilities are quite different but way better than any previous version. Bottom line, can you afford $500 or is it even worth $500? Not really if you already own 6.1 or something. If you are new to video editing, then try something more affordable such as Sonic Foundry Vegas Video or Pinnacle DV. Final Cut Pro still rules the land of video editing, but it can be as much as $850 and may not be as much as a power as After Effects 5.5 + Premiere may be.
