Editors' Review

CyberLink Media Suite 12 bundles a number of powerful media tools into one unified solution, including PowerDVD for playing DVD and Blu-ray discs, PowerProducer for media authoring, PowerDirector for HD video editing, and MediaShow for managing all your media. Media Suite also edits audio, burns and copies discs, backs up data, and designs labels. While it's not cheap, it's not too expensive, either, especially when considering what it packs in comparison to similar media packages.

Pros

All-encompassing studio: Media Suite's tools work together to cover all your media needs and can serve as the core of a home media platform. For example, you can copy movies to your hard drive and watch them on your home media network.

Unified interface: Though you can access tools individually, Media Suite's master interface let us select any function and then choose from a menu of wizards for things we want to do, like Play a Movie Disc or View Online Movie Info.

Cross-platform: You can create and manage media for portable devices with Media Suite, too. Recent updates include Windows 8 touchscreen compatibility.

Extras: Media Suite packs mobile apps, including Android versions of some of its tools, as well as some extras like YouCam apps.

Cons

Size: CyberLink Media Suite 12 is a large download of compressed data that must be extracted, and installing all 12 bundled programs requires more than 2GB of your drive. If space is an issue (for example, if you boot from an SSD), be aware of the headroom required.

Bottom Line

While CyberLink Media Suite 12 costs just under $120 retail (with a 30-day trial), it may be a bargain for many users, especially when you consider that it packs not only some powerful media authoring and managing tools that already work together, but it can also replace component Blu-ray or DVD players in a home media system.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of CyberLink Media Suite 12. The trial version is limited to 30 days.

"It is a come-on programs are restricted"

February 02, 2015  |  By radale812

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 12.0

Pros

It can find and display your content nicely.

Cons

It is a sampling of program capability but to use all the capability they advertise it as having you need to spend more to upgrade what was already sold to you as an ultimate package.

Summary

Do not fall for this marketing con. They sell you an ultimate package that is nothing more than a sampling of programs that you need to upgrade if you want to use what they said you bought.

"Requires pay-for updates"

January 16, 2015  |  By VinnytheGeek

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 12.0

Pros

Good for Blu-Ray viewing if updated

Cons

Can not play Blu-Ray Movie unless you pay for updates.

Summary

I bought the Blu-Ray player 2 years ago and it worked fine. Now I'm told I have to pay to have the software updated. I think that's totally wrong. My Blu[Ray player attached to the television updates automatically and for free.

"No longer functioning correctly and no support"

January 06, 2015  |  By msecour

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 12.0

Pros

Worked OK for a while

Cons

I finally opted to click on an annoying pop-up telling me to accept an update for the PowerDVD function. It rendered my DVD player unusable. I tried to re-install the suite and now the PowerDVD asks for a CD installation code -- which does not match the code for the suite. Attempted to uninstall the entire suite. It uninstalled everything except PowerDVD but get this: the entire suite still works, even though it no longer shows in my programs. I attempted to use the Cyberlink uninstall utility to finish the job and my virus program intercepted it as a trojan horse virus and deleted it. This software has a death grip on my hard drive and after several attempts to get support from Cyberlink they bumped it up to a higher level. That was over three weeks ago and my follow-up attempts for updates have gone unanswered.

Summary

Media Suite behaves more like a cancer than legitimate software. I would avoid it at all costs.

"Thanks but no thanks"

November 01, 2014  |  By you dont say

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 12.0

Pros

Hmm, let me think about that

Cons

CyberLink Media Suite 12 trial version came pre-loaded on my Dell desktop. It doesn't do all that it says it does. It has annoying pop ups. It asks several times wanting to upgrade to the same exact version but you simply can't click no; you have to go through each prompt for each program. No, No, No, No, No...It's out of China, I've read where Norton and AVG picked up adware. I won't waste your time but it's annoying junk. Oh wait, it's overpriced too so I'll call it junque.

Summary

You can do better.

"Restricted copies of full programs waste of money"

July 18, 2014  |  By mhurley142

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 12.0

Pros

Good programs but to get the full use of each one you have to buy the full version.

Cons

The entire Ultimate Bundle is a CON. The programs look good but when you try to use the features beware Power2Go does not RIP to MP3! if you want this most common RIP feature guess what, you have to upgrade to the package to what tech support say is the full version of the program. Strange as this is not mentioned in any of their promotional material that I could find, on this basis I paid my money and bought the suite looked a good deal obviously is for CyberLink as you have to splash out for more if you like the program. The whole suite concept is a CON try to contat them and it gets even tougher.

Summary

Avoid the suite buy the applications you need and don't be tempted by the marketing about it being the most complete 15 in 1 multimedia suite it definitly is not, it is however the most incomplete.

"Didn't do what I wanted, notwithstanding claims"

March 05, 2014  |  By James Rice

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 11

Pros

None. For all I know, this is probably good software, if you hit the sweet spot of what it's supposed to do, but it didn't do anything for me, so at least for my use case there were no pros.

Cons

I was looking for software that would rip the audio off Blu Ray discs into separate MP3 tracks (I like to listen to concert Blu Rays in the car). Their web site claims that they will rip Blu Rays but, at least as far as I can tell, it will only let you rip the full audio-visual experience. Ripping the audio is obviously a small subtask of the full ball of wax, but they don't seem to support it.

VLC will rip the audio from Blu Rays (once you've got it working with Blu Ray at all), but only as one big block. DVDFab9 ended up doing what I wanted (with a quirky UI and a few bugs).

Summary

A 1.6GB install, and it still didn't do an apparently simple task.

"Read all those identical RAVE reviews!"

November 19, 2013  |  By Misterbearbaby

 |  Version: CyberLink Media Suite 11

Pros

Works, in a limited fashion.
Reading the reviews with the demented grammar and numerous exclamation points is fun!!!!

Cons

I'm prejudiced because its the biggest piece of bloatware that came with my new HP laptop. It is a huge program and has several automatic updates- anybody want some more automatic updates? Flashy GUI that is actually quite poor to navigate and use for ordinary everyday stuff.
Its capabilities are surprisingly limed as far as audio. I find for my day-to-day needs that WMP plus a couple pieces of freeware (e.g. Any Audio Converter) give me plenty of power without all the garbage. $119, indeed. If you're going to do some heavy-duty audio/video editing you'll be using a real professional product anyway.
