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.

    "Restricted copies of full programs waste of money"

    July 18, 2014   |   By mhurley142

    Version: CyberLink Media Suite 12

    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.
