good deal

vlc free and good enough of a media player, really not a point to trying to promote worthless unneeded software,

Doesn't do anything free programs can't do.

I agree that people should look into free options, but it's not about whether there are good alternatives, it's about whether this is a good deal for this particular thing or not. Otherwise, threads would be awash in people suggesting alternatives.

OMG, finally somebody has managed to go back in time for a deal, and brought back powerdvd from the earlier naughties

They generally are a wash with alternatives, if someone wants this specific prgoram im sure this is a good deal, if someone wants the features offered by this program then this isnt a good deal. Its good however anyone looking at this is aware of other possibility, especially if cheaper.

For most things there are better free alternatives out there, except for Blu Rays on Windows 10.

If you're building your own system then you pretty much have to shell out for something if you want consitent/universal/problem-free playback for BRs (unless you happen to get some half-decent free bundled software).

Although I believe you need the Pro or Ultra versions of PowerDVD for BR support and this deal is for the Ultra version.

Novatech still knock out some ancient version at £1.81, although obviously v16 at £44.99 is 23.8 times better.

wow PowerDVD...didn't even know it was still around. Also £45 for a software blu-ray player? Seems excessive.

Trying to decide between this and WinRAR... any suggestions?

7zip is excellent and free

Try playing Blu-rays on vlc or equivalent programs. Not possible. Software like this is annoyingly required.

Isn't that down to your amp? I run powerdvd for Blu-ray playback and have just set it to send unadulterated audio for my amp to deal with

Not convinced VLC can decrypt bluray without purchasing / obtaining additional software (possibly similar to this although I haven't tried it), but I would tend to agree with your sentiment.

That's a brave purchase considering the restricted featureset of such an ancient version, but regardless: I shall be contacting Novatech to acquire my affiliate commission.

Thanks for the advice. Most times they offer free or cheap upgrades. These products are required as said above. Windows & Intel support for multimedia / blue ray is so crap. To think about 4k in a windows computer is like getting an elephant pass through a needle hole. So software solutions like this will always needed.
