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.

"This is Very dangerous"

March 23, 2015  |  By CaptEricS

 |  Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 10

Pros

Power2go 10.0 is a virus and trogan, if you will, Yet, the original on my PC falied on a certan date... Latter, the current Power2go came up??? THIS is a virus that cannot be identified on most OS. The corporation is tryimg to hide it from you. All the Best!

Cons

Always shows on BOOT up. I owned the partcial version on my PC purchace, yet tf failed recently. (Cyberlink has some good products, yet they have probably been taken over and I DO NOT trust them anymore!)

Summary

There is no such thing as cyber security... or neither social networking / security!
THIS HAS BECOMING VERY DANGEROUS!!!

"Downloader does not install software"

February 17, 2015  |  By LorraineJoubert

 |  Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 10

Pros

None- does not install

Cons

Struggle to get the software download. Most sites only give the latest version, which is not compatible with XP. This is not the software, but a downloader. The downloader refuses to install the software, requesting Direct X9, though it is already installed on my laptop.

Summary

maybe it will be great if Cnet could give is the software to download and not a downloader that does not work.

"Great. Simple and does the job"

February 10, 2015  |  By zoorick

 |  Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 10

Pros

It has everything one may need to rip or burn disk. There are tons of other features, but I rarely use them.

Cons

None. I don't understand all the hate comments. This is a matter of taste and nitpicking I think.
