Editors' Review

Sometimes you really do get what you pay for. At least you do with the pricey CyberLink PowerDVD, a nifty video player that combines ease of use, top-notch performance, and an outstanding feature set.

The compact and handy interface comes in several flavors, including a miniature version with minimal playback controls. The context menu is customizable, and the program automatically resumes playback from the last point you viewed. You can bookmark interesting scenes and move subtitles so they don't interfere with the picture. Video-enhancement options include color profiles and Eagle Vision technology, which makes the picture brighter and more natural. CyberLink PowerDVD also has tools for improving sound on headphones or two-speaker systems. You can enable a different parental control level for each of your kids. It also supports Blu-ray discs and picture-in-picture displays.

What's not to like? OK, the price: $69.95 might seem steep, but you're getting a lot for your money. Also, Windows Vista users have complained about bugs since Version 7, so caveat emptor if you're on a Vista-32 machine.

    "Superb Player"

    October 10, 2014   |   By JHzlwd

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 14.0

    Pros

    Actually works - and in a straightforward way.

    Cons

    A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Forget the free stuff. It's a big waste of time.

    Summary

    Tried numerous Open Source (free) players and not one would sync closed captions properly. Some even would pause during playback and get the audio out of sync. I'm lookin' at you, VLC, which has both problems. Power DVD just plays your DVD the way it's meant to be with no need to fool with sync settings or other details you shouldn't have to deal with. Very easy to use and intuitive with a great interface.
