On a friend's recommendation, a few years ago I was using Pinnacle. I found it pretty unstable, at the time.
I also bought Corel, because, at the time, it could legally transfer and edit videos from a Tivo. It was an advertised feature.
During my search for something new, I tried Sony Vegas. I don't remember any specifics, just that I didn't find it compelling.
For the last few years, I've been using Cyberlink's PowerDirector. My needs are very, very simple. I edit amateur sports videos, mostly hockey captured with a helmetcam that I wear. For use in stitching those together and muting portions where the scorekeeper entertains himself by playing music (the YouTube copyright flags those) I find it plenty Good Enough.
One place where PowerDirector falls flat is multi-camera editing. Sometimes, a teammate of mine will put up one or more GoPros around the rink. It is extremely cumbersome to get everything synced up. And then, there's no easy way to view multiple tracks in separate windows, synced up. They do have a multi-camera module, but the views are postage stamp in size.
Other than that, I've found the program to be very stable (I think it has only crashed on me three or four times in the last few years.) And, they have an active forum, with a lot of helpful people.
