Upgrade to Pro 12 for $142, is that a good deal?

Sony sent me an email about it. I'll be getting a new computer soon, should I upgrade to Pro 12 for $142? I'm using Pro 8 at this time. There have been various hiccups here and there, and I'm not sure if it's my weak PC or Vegas Pro 8 having to work with AVCHD.
Thanks,

Norris, if your'e jumping from VP8 then it's probably a good deal for you as I think VP8 would struggle with AVCHD. But, for me with VP11 I don't know.

Jeff, do you know if DVDA in VP12 is the same as the newly released free upgrade from 5.2 to 6 ?

The V12 upgrade does include DVDA 5.2 (at least the suite I got did) BUT DVDA 6 is a pay for upgrade. At least it was a couple of weeks ago when I made the jump from (gulp) Vegas 6. :-0

Don, that's interesting as I received a popup when I opened my DVDA program some time ago offering me to login & download vers. 6.

I guess this makes it even less advantageous for me to jump to VP12.

DVDA V6 was free for me as well.

DVDA 5.2 to 6.0 upgrade was free for me too. The $142 for upgrade to VP12 is currently the best deal. The original upgrade price at original release of VP12 was $139.

Re: Upgrade to Pro 12 for $142, is that a good deal?

Well, all I know is that when I went to upgrade to V12 (at $99.99-yaa) I went to go to DVDA v6 and I got a window saying it was $XX dollars to upgrade. I don't remember what the number was but I do remember thinking to myself that it probably wasn't worth it so I didn't. Unless I did something wrong somewhere along the line which I suppose is possible.
Sorry for the confusion.
