I just bit the bullet and bought PowerDVD. I hope that I didn't get ripped off as the stated normal price was $100.00 and I paid $60.00. This is the 'Ultra' version.

I bought PowerDVD as I'm starting to get into Blu-ray a bit. For years I have used VLC and Media Player Cassic as my players but neither offer Blu-ray playback as a normal feature. VLC takes some library add-ons that I don't want to mess with and I don't know if MPC can do at all.

Install is done and it plays the Blu-ray version on Aquaman and Angels and Demons fine. These are the only Blu-ray disks I have.

If anyone knows any tricks or tips with PowerDVD I'd appreciate any input. :)

Funny thing. When I first glanced at your post subject, I thought maybe I could help because I have a CyberPower UPS, although I didn't remember getting a DVD with it. Whoops :oops:

No worries BB. :)

PowerDVD is a media player, not a UPS.

So far I am pleased with the player...

While I still prefer my Excel media library spreadsheet as titles are grouped by genre it is still nice that you can point PowerDVD to media folders and it will search for media and display along with cover art.

So far the only thing I have found even a little irritating is that a Blu-ray menu cannot be controlled by the mouse. You have to use the keyboard arrow keys and enter. Another option for this, which I have turned on, is that if you click on a menu option with the mouse, it will bring up an on-screen remote control that can be used with the mouse. The mouse can be used to control DVD menus.

I think that I am liking the thing so far. :) I think that it will prove worth the $60.00 cost for a media junkie but probably not for one that just watches a video now and then.

I have PowerDVD12 on my desktop computer, but of course it came bundled with it, I've had a few computers that included it, either that or Nero (think that was the name).

I don't use them enough to comment on their features, which are probably less on the bundle version than they'd be on the full version.

PowerDVD often comes bundled with an optical drive but I think it is a 'lite' version. I was never all that impressed with the bundled version but this is a LOT different. Whether the difference is between a lite and ultra version or just newer I don't know but, so far, it seems pretty sweet. BTW, I have PowerDVD18 Ultra.
