CyberLink PowerDVD Comments

Not too bad

Positive Comment by EminoMeneko
about CyberLink PowerDVD Jan 2016

I own the Ultra version 14. So far I won't upgrade anymore until you can officially resume Blu-rays from where you left them. This feature works fine on DVDs this is basically all I miss.


worst bloatware ever
