Packard Bell i go 5581

“Packard Bell Computers are in my experience very good...”

Written on: 20/11/2005 by stricklin (19 reviews written)

Packard Bell Computers are in my experience very good value for money. Just wait though until you need some assitance or customer support. It is virtually impossible. I have tried many times to contact them by email and have never had a single response. I have tried taking the computer to various computer shops including PC World where I bought the computer only to be told Packard Bell won't supply parts to anyone.The faulty laptop is now sitting in box doing nothing and I cannot get it… Read Full Review

“The "i go" 2000 is actually a very powerfull laptop...”

Written on: 15/04/2003 by Obsecado. (1 review written)

The "i go" 2000 is actually a very powerfull laptop and the most surprising aspect of it was the 32 mb graphics card. But I soon found out that the card does not procude some of the shadowing effects and other features that the Ati and nVidia graphic cards do. To most people this is harmless since they probably don't play games like famous Splinter Cell, or Metal Gear Solid that require a 32 mb graphics card but won't run on this PC. This PC is great, for using most of todays standard… Read Full Review

I go 5581 is RUBBISH. I am programmer and I work with computers my whole life. The processor (
<br>AMD ATHLON XP - obviously ) is overheating and the computer keeps restarting. If you go to packard bells website forum, believe me you can read a lot of posts with exact same problem but I didn't find any answers. My recommodation: DONT BY PACKARDBELL NOTEBOOKS.

“I owned a Packard Bell Easy Silver One and it was...”

Written on: 26/09/2002 by Bek. (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

well id have to agree on the keyboard comment and the power supply but other than that i cant comment on the speakers as its my first laptop.
<br>the only other complaints about it the fact that the USB ports have gone real sloppy and that i cant find any other info on it apart from the initial spec
