Terrible Speakers, wobbly DVD/CDR Drive, clunky keypad, loose power cable....
I owned a Packard Bell Easy Silver One and it was fantastic. Upon upgrading I assumed that the igo 5581 would be of equal quality...far from it. It has great specs but is made REALLY cheaply. Just touching it feels as though it will fall apart. Cd drive feels though it will fall off the rails. As the keyboard is designed to lift out, many keys clunk and it is not smooth to type on. It's annoying to play music and watch films 'cause the speakers screech. Power cable keeps falling out the back. List goes on. I have owned it for 5 days and it is going back!! Shame on PB for making such a flimsy product. It is obvious they have lowered their standards.
