    "Paid Version is Bad!"

    July 12, 2013  |   By Greg_Turnbull

    Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 8.0

    Pros

    Not many, but essentials version will work with the right media in the right drive under XP/W7 if you are careful...

    Cons

    I upgraded from the free to the paid version (media suite) AND LOST the ability to burn BD-Rs!!!
    You need to be very careful during a BD-R burn, do not exceed the media speed rating (much), do not work on the PC at the same time (at least until the verify stage & not disk intensive), always verify burns, do not touch the wrong side of the media, etc.
    Use under W8 can be an issue. Stick with the free version on XP/W7 if you must or try ImgBurn,et al. Cyberlink are v. unhelpful...

    Summary

    DO NOT PAY FOR THIS!

    "Great Software!"

    May 29, 2013  |   By joshprinceee

    Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 8.0

    Pros

    CyberLink Power2Go 8 is a cut above most of the other burning suites in this category, sporting both a classier interface and more tools, such as the ability to mount a ripped disc image, encryption for your burn projects, and system backup and recovery! Very nice one for burning~~

    Cons

    some ads are in the software, but does not matter! Still good~

    Summary

    i strongly suggest to try it!

    "You can make a CD after a bit of a fight."

    May 1, 2013  |   By Def_Fresh

    Version: CyberLink Power2Go Essential 8.0

    Pros

    It works eventually

    Cons

    When trying to select files you have to do it quickly in between the jumps it's doing.
    Once the CD is burnt it takes you straight to the label printing program where it immediately forgets all the tracks you've just burnt so you can type them in manually!!!
    Then you have to try and change the layout because unusually you might actually want to put the Artist as well as the title!!!
    Also you have to be very careful that you don't accidently delete what you have entered because it doesn't like conventional cut and paste hot keys.

    Summary

    It will burn your CD and make your label after a lot of cursing shouting and crazy pleading. But save your sanity and blood pressure and go and use something else.
