Pros: It's a CD/DVD/Blu ray burning software and does the job rather well. I was looking for it to be faster than it actually writes but it's adequate enough. However, the speed or lack thereof cost it one egg.
Cons: I gave this three eggs because the software was a bit slower that previous windows versions I have used.

Pros: downloadable software alot of blu-ray drives don't come with software so this will work for that.
Cons: the flix finder option has been deleted in their update and that website is for sale. The 2d to 3d option doesn't work for most things. the upscale converter is horrible and adds a static look to the video.I overpaid for this on newegg since corel website has it for 49.99 normal price and newegg on sale was 69.99.
Other Thoughts: I've never really had to do much price compairing with newegg but since this purchase i will from now on and may decide to shop elsewhere. This is as advertised with flix finder but guess what, it was removed from the software when u update since they shut down that feature. I truely regret this purchase and am not very happy with newegg right now.

Pros: it played blurays, thats all that mattered to me
Cons: I used the 10 version when i bought my bluray drive. I had windows 7 at the time and everything worked fine. I had recently upgraded to windows 8, and this thing stopped working.
I contacted customer support and was told powerdvd10 is not supported on windows8 and that I HAVE TO PAY ANOTHER $80 TO UPGRADE TO 13.
while this product works when you get it, they force you to pay again when a new operating system comes out. I would save the money buying this and buy a regular bluray player.
Other Thoughts: I paid $100 for my bluray drive, and now im gonna have to basically rent this product every couple of years.
If they would have gave me a 50% discount, i might still use their services, but its always about that $$$
Manufacturer Response:Hello David, We are sorry to hear about your situation. PowerDVD 10 is not compatible with Windows 8 because it is using 4 year old software architecture, which needed to be updated significantly to fit the specs of the latest operating system.
PowerDVD 10 was developed and tested with the operating systems and hardware devices available at that time. We released many free patch updates to ensure our customers were fully supported for the intended OS and/or hardware devices. To do so for a whole new operating system was just not feasible as a lot of our resources are dedicated to developing new software versions for the latest technologies and features such as 4K, which is also not available in version 10. In fact there is some hardware that supported Windows 7, which also needs to be upgraded to work with Windows 8 architecture.
We do apologize that you were not aware of this when you paid to upgrade to Windows 8. However, PowerDVD 12 does support Windows 8 and I am sure you can find a lower price for that version on this or one of our other verified retail stores. See the list below:
