My verdict

I have touched upon few basic features of PowerDVD 12 Ultra. There are many more features, which you’ll get to know as you start using it. With the release of every new versions PowerDVD has improved immensely and it is now the best media player for your pc. Not only a media player, it is now turned into a complete media entertainment suit with every features that you can possibly think off.

For those of you who likes numbers and ratings, for them I would like to give PowerDVD 12 Ultra a 4.5 stars. I have deducted 0.5 stars just for the fact that its bit heavy on the system resource and inviduals with old machines might face few problems using it. People generally prefer a light weight media player but then again you cannot get so many features on those simple lightweight media players. All in all PowerDVD 12 is the most comprehensive media entertainment suit with all the features you can possible think off. And if you can shell out few bucks on this then I can guarantee you that this will be a money well spent.
