Cyberlink offers large discount to users of competing software

Posted at 31 January 2013 14:24 CET by Jan Willem Aldershoff

Cyberlink is offering large discounts to users of competing software who want to switch to PowerDirector 11. The company has setup a special page on their website which compares Adobe Premiere Elements, Sony Movie Studio and Pinnacle Studio to PowerDirector 11. Users can get a coupon code by sending an e-mail to the company in which you have to show a screenshot of the about page of the software you currently use.

Cyberlink claims that within 2 days they will send a coupon code that makes users eligible for discounts ranging from $30 for PowerDirector 11 Ultra, to $80 for Director Suite. More information can be found on this special page on the Cyberlink website.

    I can't hold back, gotta say it:

    They should give it away, even free it's a bad bargain.

      Gotta agree with CDan on this one.

      The Cyberlink software is horrific...they couldn't make it any more frustrating to work with if they deliberately tried. I particularly loved the crashes with no clue as to what happened.

      Never again.

        They couldn't pay me to put their software on my PC or laptops.

        I've had so many bad experiences with their stuff that I stay far and wide of their products, and tell my friends likewise.

          I must be the only person here that quite likes the feel of PowerDVD.

              Who watches movies on their computer anyway? What a waste of money.

                  Well TBH it's an older version I'm using that I got with the PC so things could well have gone downhill since then.

                  I use also use VLC too though.

                    Up to PowerDVD 8 was good, IMO after that it started going downhill fast

                      Believe it or not it's Version 7 I'm still using here.
