- Gives you a useful assortment of media-related tools in a single place

- Frequent update prompts are annoying
CyberLink offers a slew of media related applications and utilities, and it has bundled together a variety of these programs to create the CyberLink Media Suite 10. PowerDVD, PowerDirector, MediaShow, and Power2Go are just some of the applications included in the suite. The Media Suite 10 offers a great package of media tools; however, chances are users already have alternate programs that do the same thing.
NotebookReview tested CyberLink Media Suite 10 on a Lenovo 7580 laptop with an i7 processor with 8GB of RAM, and \”found performance in all areas to be more than acceptable, even for applications such as video transcoding and format conversations.\” When converting non-copyrighted (copyrighted files are not supported) movie files to be smartphone or tablet compatible, the process took NBR around 15 minutes to complete, and the entire movie was split into separate files. For users with a CUDA capable graphics card, this software is optimized for NVidia\’s CUDA technology, making it a great user experience for equipped computers. Users can also turn 2D video files into 3D videos that can be viewed with the classic red and blue 3D glasses; while the 3D capabilities may not be a huge selling point, it is at least a fun novelty feature. NBR did note that the software constantly asked testers to upgrade, forcing users to move through screens trying to sell them on the latest updates.
The CyberLink Media Suite 10 offers great features and functionality, but it is best for those who currently have very few options for performing the same tasks. Since it offers a plethora of media tools, it could overlap with programs users already own, but for those who need a basic program to give them plenty of media tools, then this software will certainly suffice.
