    "One big, cheap, brilliantly marketed pile of CRAP!!!"

    November 5, 2009  |   By jonwlong

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    Cheap.
    Nothing Else.

    Cons

    Really really buggy.
    Can't use it to make a movie from raw footage to usable output without serious quality sacrifices and workarounds.
    Support costs money.
    The user forum is run by a bunch of creepy and overly ambitious morons.

    Summary

    I used this product for making videos for fun for two years. Ver. 4-8. It was difficult to get any good quality from beginning to end. Lot's of bugs. For instance, a project would suddenly become corrupt and you would lose everything. It would constantly lock up or hang endlessly. It was a resource hog.

    The forum, which is the only free support is pathetic. There are paid forum users they call "Senior Editors". These guys are pieces or work. I'm telling you, they will **** you off. They are like the soup nazi from Seinfeld.

    How can this product repeatedly be rated as one of the top video editing apps?

    The last straw for me was when I couldn't get my sound to work in my timeline. "Support" told me to upgrade to PD 8.0, which I did. After downloading and installing, it asked for a key to register. I was not given a key or a recpt for my purchase. So, I couldn't even run the app. After more than a week of complaining to them, they finally sent me a rediculously long list of procedures in order to uninstall and reinstall with 2 reboots involved. Finally, got it working, but with even more bugs and the sound still did not work.

    They gave me a serious run around when I tried to get my money back. I finally had to go to the BBB in CA. It took 2 months to get my money back.

    This company(Cyberlink) is corrupt.

    Updated on Nov 5, 2009

    I meant I upgraded to PowerDirector version 9. Read other miserable users experience in their forum: http://directorzone.cyberlink.com/forum/

    "Doesn't work."

    June 1, 2009  |   By RevDougL

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    Cyperlink's name. I have PowerDVD 5 on my laptop that works great. Wanted 9 for my desktop and expected good things.

    Cons

    Doesn't work, keeps asking me to register when I successfully registered a number of times. I may see junk mail from this trial. Don't wast your time.

    Summary

    Doesn't work, wasted my time and energy.

    "horrible customer support"

    May 28, 2009  |   By hkknight

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    best product on the market

    Cons

    horrible customer support

    Summary

    I recently (05/27/2009) purchased a download for PowerDirector 7 ultra upgrade:

    order number 4248473016 serial number EON48-SCBTC-WSYSH-AHKLV-NNUCW-3E7ER
    I received a free copy of PD express with my JVC video camera. It was so MUCH better than the windows product. I recently made a few movies using express and showed them at work (NASA Langley Research Center) I got so much positive feed back I decided to purchase a full blow video editing package. I really like the cyberlink product but I did some research first. What I found out is YOU have the BEST all around product on the market. So I wanted CYBERLINK, I DID NOT care what it cost. When I showed my videos everyone asked what I used and I told them. Many were thinking about buying your product. I will still tell them to buy it however I will also tell them: DO NOT BUY THE DOWN LOAD, DO NOT BUY if you have VISTA. Do not BUY if you think you may need CUSTOMER SUPPORT.

    The Problem: The original download that was given to me from your web site would NOT install. I was told by your customer support (CS) that it was not the right one. Thus I had to back out of this first install. It took hours. Your CS instructions were easy and mostly correct. However the registries I was told to remove were NOT THERE. (I can view hidden files) This may still be my ultimate problem. I successfully downloaded the NEWEST VISTA compatible version. (if I would have gotten this one the first time I would have had NO problems and you would be getting many orders from my co-workers this week) When your installer runs it says I still have PowerDirector on my machine and stops. Your customer support told me I had to uninstall POWERDIRECTOR express which I did. Went through the WHOLE process again, same error on install. I then removed EVERY Cyberlink product off my machine. ALL the ones I got for free with my JVC camera. I used the windows install wizard your CS folks told me to down load. I have FULLY scrubbed my machine of anything with cyberlink, power director, all video software except window movie maker.
    I still got the same installer error message: powerdirector still on machine installation stopped remove power director.
    I have spent over SEVEN (7) hours working with this. Your product is so good I still want it. I was going to go buy it (once I get my refund from your on-line store) but I am afraid the store bought version will give me the same installer error. Your Techical support site gives me the SAME TWO replies (computer automated from some other country) every time. No matter how I phrase the question, no matter what group I send it to, Believe me I tried them ALL!!!. Thus the delima.
    I want to be a customer and user of cyberlink powerdirector and some of your other products but now they are ALL off my machine. I am going to send this text to a few contacts off your site. PLEASE help me. Again I want a refund but is it possible to get a VISTA compatible version of your products that will install? Next week I am going out to buy a full blown version to video edit. If I do NOT hear back from your company I will purchase NERO or some other brand. PLEASE reply to:

    Knight41@cox.net or call 757-639-6217 or write to 1135 lotus street, Hampton VA. 23663.

    "scam... product requires on-line registration. OK, but"

    May 16, 2009  |   By the-arb

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    Hummm, that's tough

    Cons

    Lack of a product that works is equalled to very bad customer support, if you call the guys from India claiming to be "Joe". OK, BUT their product can't follow my high speed connection like every other application on my computer has no problems doing

    Summary

    don't waste your time.

    "Works well enough for me on Windows 7..."

    May 3, 2009  |   By Wolfie2k5

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    Nice interface, better than previous versions. Works on Windows 7 Beta (7000)

    Cons

    haven't found anything specific yet.

    Summary

    I don't have HD or BluRay - so many of the newer features don't really apply to me. But it played DVD files on the hard drive as well as DVDs without any complaint. The picture was well rendered.

    "Buggy software that cannot play movies!"

    April 28, 2009  |   By grandmasterjrp

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    None! It cannot even handle playing movies.

    Cons

    This software is worthless. Cannot play movies. Full of show stopper bugs but that won't stop them from selling this so called "product." It is at best a nonfunctioning alpha release. Don't be fooled. Avoid this software at all costs.

    Summary

    Support is slow and does not seem to speak English. Responses appear to be auto generated without specific regard to your question. There are no listed phone numbers and for a good reason, they will not help you and they don't want you to be able to contact them directly. If you have accidentally purchased this garbage, call your credit card company and debate the charge. It is impossible to get a refund. Invest in a stand alone blue-ray player that at least has gone through some quality control.

    "AVOID this software"

    April 23, 2009  |   By ruapits

    Version: CyberLink PowerDVD 9.1530

    Pros

    It has a nice looking interface/GUI

    Cons

    I purchased the software/downloaded & installed. It will come up but then bombs out when you try to bring up a DVD movie. They will help for an additional $30 which is like having to buy it twice just to get it to work once. Otherwise no support.

    Summary

    No support for newly purchased software unless you give and additional $30 dollars. I wish I had used the DEMO version first to see if it would work. At least that way I would have known to buy from a different company. If you do purchase this cross your fingers and be ready to pay if you have any initial problems.

    In my defense, If this software had worked for a month and then quit I would pay the money for support or buy something else. This has not worked from the start which is why it is really making me angry that they want more cash so they can use me to bugfix their product.
