Editors' Review

CyberLink Power2Go 10 can rip, burn, copy, and convert movies, music, and data discs; convert media directly for mobile devices; print labels; and manage media libraries. The Platinum version adds significant features to the free Power2Go Essential, including the Disc Manager, online media backup (social media, too), and the ability to rip CDs directly to FLAC or APE.

Pros

Suite: Power2Go's start screen integrates all tools, each of which has its own layout. We could set preferences to automatically print labels, retrieve album and disc info online, automatically add burned discs to libraries and backups, and do other things only an integrated suite can do.

All discs: The software handles all of your media discs: Blu-ray, DVD, CD, Mixed Mode CDs, and even Photo Gallery discs.

Recovery disc: Take a blank disc and a few minutes to burn a system recovery disc, and keep it safe and accessible: You'll be glad you did, should you ever need it.

Extras: Though basic, Power2Go Essential has a few extras, like the Desktop Burning Gadget. The Platinum version adds LabelPrint, WaveEditor, Virtual Drive, and many more features and utilities.

Cons

Go free: Freeware can replicate features like online media backup and library management, making Power2Go Essential and other free tools viable alternatives to premium suites like Power2Go 10 Platinum.

Bottom Line

Though Power2Go 10's free version delivers the essentials, we favor better tools when performance matters most.

"Worthless Software"

January 22, 2016  |  By bigmark0272

2016-01-22 17:05:11  |  By bigmark0272

 |  Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 10

Pros

Can create virtual drive

Cons

Don't have access to any part of the software but creating a virtual drive unless you do the $70 upgrade

Summary

In summary this is pretty much worthless and space eating software.
