This program takes FOREVER to load blu rays, that is, if it does decide to work and not randomly turn off your laptop's display forcing you to restart until it works. But wait, there's more. On some hdtvs, it will not play the dts audio.
This program is the worst piece of nuts that I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with and I recommend that you look around for superior blu ray software, such as Arcsoft's Total Media Theatre.

Nothing speciale, beside BD don't offer anything I can get with free splash lite
It doesn't play the most beautiful container in the world: MKV!!!
And thats why the whole product $uck$!!! sorry but i'm searching so long for a simple media player with GPU/DXVA/AVIVO support and also powerDVD8 supports it but NO MKV!! AAARGHH!!!!
Get that ITCH again when you try to find 1 thing all day long and realise there is no solution nowhere in the whole world...
Because I didn't see anything saying "trail" I actually thought it was the full version. But awesome (for 8 days).
Pretty neat application but there are a couple of issues.
1) Enabling hardware acceleration from within the application for computers equipped with HWMC and DXVA video adapters doesn't seem to work. Additional registry changes are required.
2) While I can playback my HDTV TS files, I have no idea how one can switch between the different programs within the TS stream. The UI appears to be missing what they claim can be done. Online help or FAQ on their site doesn't even mention this capability.
