    1.0 out of 5 stars Tried the trial version of this... 17 Mar 2012
    And it has the EXACT same problems that powerDVD 11 had- crashing and bugging when playing blu rays from a BD ROM. VERY unstable. I read on a forum somewhere that power dvd doesn't work so well with nvidia graphic cards which is what I, as well as many others, use.

    If your looking for a decent software that plays blu rays that is 100% stable and WON'T crash and have problems but doesn't have a nice and fancy interface (but what would you prefer?), do yourself a favour and try out the trial first. If it messes up like it did with mine, try Corel WinDVD 11 Pro (PC), but try the trial version first just in case. I've been using it for months now to play blu rays and never had any such problems as power DVD. 100% stable and reliable. Which is a shame, because the interface and some features of powerDVD 12 are very good, but not many other software companies seem to be making blu ray software. How come the likes of companies such as Sony haven't even caught on yet?

    But to me, Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 Ultra (PC) has the EXACT problems it's preprocessor had. I hoped they would work on this issue, but it seems they haven't.

    Shame on you, CYBERLINK.

    Let's hope in the future, there'll be a FREE download of software to play Blu Rays. I'm hoping that VLC media player, STILL the best media player out there (yet it's free), may do a future version that plays them.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Power DVD 12 ultra 22 July 2012
    By JT
    Verified Purchase
    I almost did not purchase this product when I read the other reviews and I am so pleased that I purchased it.
    It does everything that I expected of it,I am able to play my Blu-Ray movies with no problems at all, along with all the other discs.The softwear includes an app to turn my smartphone into a remote. I have played several Blu-Ray movies with no buffering and I would recommend this product to anyone.It does require a good CPU and graphics card
    if you have a slower computer it may not work, but if you have a newer computer you should not have any problems with this softwear.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Promises much but doesn't deliver all yet. 21 May 2012
    By Mr. Richard Pearn TOP 500 REVIEWER
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    What does it do ?

    Power DVD 12 is a media player that is supposed to be a one stop shop to play all your media files on. We all have many types of media files on our computers these days and one program won't display or play media from another. Software, like Power DVD, has many built in codecs so that you should be able to view all your media files in one place. I have used version 11 and that was OK but certainly was not comprehensive, I loaded version 12 expecting it to be a big improvement, It promises much on the box.

    Does it deliver ?

    Power DVD version 12 promises much but fails to deliver on many of these. I tried playing HD files from my JVC camcorder and got the message 'Power DVD does not support this file format' I also tried music from my Nokia phone and got the same message, not a good start. I tried some DVD's and a couple of Blue Ray disks and it played these easily. Some old camcorder footage also played but was very hit and miss about quality and frame sync. although it played fine in version 11.

    Seems to need lots of system resources

    Like others reviewing this software I found that it likes to eat CPU time and memory which generally slows everything down. I have a very powerful PC (core i7, 16Gb RAM and SSD drive) which runs video editing packages very well. However, this software was not happy and seemed very buggy.

    I tried to like it

    I really did give it a good workout but I feel the software is unfinished with a lot of rough edges. The claim on the box that it will 'play all media' is misleading to say the least as it won't. Version 11 was better than this, smoother, easier to use, less buggy and much cheaper.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Plays Blu-ray discs but........ 15 Aug 2012
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    If you have a laptop or PC with a Blu-ray drive Windows doesn't come with a Blu-ray player so you need to buy one. PowerDVD takes up quite a lot of hard disk, over 300MB, it also seemed quite slow and personally I found the interface confusing.
    One of the constant irritations with Cyberlink products are the frequent pop-ups urging you to upgrade or purchase other Cyberlink products and PowerDVD is no exception. I've found this worse when the product, although perfectly useable, has a newer version available.
    In use it played DVDs and BluRay discs without problem, it also played files from my Sagem freeview PVR, these are in MPEG-2 transport stream format, with a .ts suffix; as PowerDVD claims to allow you to play the files on portable devices I tried to get these to play on my Samsung Galaxy Ace Android smart-phone but without success.
    Overall a reasonable Blu-ray player but that's it.

    2.0 out of 5 stars HDCP = Hate Dumb Copyright Protection 23 April 2012
    By Mr. R. Brown VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I recently added a Blu-ray drive to my PC and after getting over my initial shock that even with the latest version of Windows (by that I mean 7, not the 8 beta/preview) there is no built-in support for Blu-ray playback, I began to consider my options.

    It seems that there is no (full featured) free option for Blu-ray playback on PC at present, forcing someone who wants to invest in one of half-a-dozen software packages. I was given the option of Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 Ultra and jumped at the chance. Perfect, I thought!

    The software arrived in an ominously large box which is adorned with details of the many features it offers. As I glanced at them I was mentally ticking off all the things I can already do on my PC with the included or free software. Hmmmm, I thought, this seems all a bit excessive just to allow me to watch my Blu-rays.

    Undeterred I installed the software and then fired it up. The software insisted on scanning my hard drive for my media, whether I wanted it to or not, which I found a bit annoying. With that done I got into the main interface and it all seemed quite nice. Very responsive, unlike for instance iTunes, and I was beginning to warm to the product.

    Then I put in a Blu-ray and it all changed. It started whirring and it recognised the disc, displaying some information about the film. That's swish, I thought, mind you I already knew all the information displayed from looking at the case I've just taken the disc out of!

    Unfortunately then it threw up an error saying that my display was not HDCP compliant and therefore I could not watch a Blu-ray film. Ridiculous! So having spent out on a Blu-ray drive and this software I am now faced with having to purchase a new monitor?

    No thank you.
