“Battery is useless !”

Written on: 16/04/2008 by Tovenaar (1 review written)

Battery is useless !
Electrical connections are suspect when running off mains after about two years. If the battery is dead then it does not want to run on mains sometimes!
I like the machine and it has given me a lot of exceptional service over the period I have had it… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2008

I need to get a new laptop, the Packard Bell iPower 5000 is not worth the money anymore as its competitors have a much better battery life.

Infact the only good point for me is that is has good graphics… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/05/2007 by djbstewart1 (1 review written)

I am very happy with this laptop, performance when I got it was far higher than anything else for the same price, and even now it still gives a good fight whenever it needs to. The laptop isn't the lightest and since the battery failed after 3 years of use it has turned into a portable desktop rather than a laptop. However, portability wasn't the first thing in Packard Bell's mind when they designed this laptop, it's performance was. Even though it only has 32mb of graphics memory it handles… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2006 by shahid1982 (1 review written)

I bought one of these secondhand, and I found it to be a very good processing machine. but I am worried about its battery. I think it's gone. Any way, the Packard Bell iPower 5000 laptop is a good speed machine, and I would like to keep it because it didn't cost me very much - only 330 pounds in November 2006… Read Full Review

“All users of the Packard Bell iPower 5000 series...”

Written on: 22/12/2005 by ukjoe (1 review written)

All users of the Packard Bell iPower 5000 series notebook laptop computers should be aware of what appears to be an inherent fault on the motherboard. After a few years, or maybe sooner, the bottom of the laptop will overheat causing possible battery failure, and graphics card failure. The only recourse for this is a very expensive replacement of the motherboard. Costing £350 this will come with only a 3 month warranty, and may fail again as mine did… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/05/2005 by Fr53dom (1 review written)

I use my Packard Bell iPower 5000 Laptop for work and at home, good graphics card allows good game play on most new games, this is a fast machine and is up there with the best desktops. I used mine everyday at work and home so it has been subjected to heavy use so please bear this in mind when reading the bad points. Generally I have been extremely happy with this PC and would recommend to anyone who wants a strong all rounder… Read Full Review

“I bought my Packard Bell iPower 5000 laptop in June...”

Written on: 07/03/2004 by shade82000 (1 review written)

I bought my Packard Bell iPower 5000 laptop in June 2003 and I paid 1199 for it. Since then (it is now Mar 2004) it is still available, but for around 800, depending on where you shop. I thought it was a good deal then because the likes of Tosh and Sony were selling machines without CDRWs, no memory card readers and smaller displays for about 400-500 more - just paying for the brand name! And they were only reaching 2000 MHz. Fine, if you are a train tart who must get your machine out on… Read Full Review

Paid 1299 in April for my Packard Bell iPower 5424 laptop,
thought i was doing the right thing. already suffered a hard disk failure, since it was replaced no longer works with the provided recovery disk. still waiting for new ones(well older ones as they have put old software on it)
very noisy, battery useless as runs out too quick, gets very hot so don't put it on your lap.
just bought a new desktop to replace it. never buy a P/Bell again… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2003 by abdun. (1 review written)

For what I paid, I got a deal. As many of the other laptop brands were offering lower spec machines at a much higher price. I pretty much bought it as a desktop replacement, which was a good thing because It really is not a very portable laptop. It very stylish silver, which I think is the new black for laptops. Don't be put off by my bad comments if your looking for a desktop replacement, buy this, it is worth every penny. If you want portable laptop don't buy this, you will waste your… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/05/2003 by Blackman. (1 review written)

In my opinion, laptops, like other electrical equipment, must not only perform well in all conceivable scenarios but must also look good. The IPOWER 5000 SERIES 1 satisfies on both counts. I spent 'weeks' visiting PC stores(often going AWOL to the annoyance of "the missus"!) and this was the unit that appealed most on price, functionality and cosmetic desirability.
Function wise it easily handles multiple task Window applications and sets up new software rapidly. On the internet,in conjunction… Read Full Review

I wanted a laptop for everything. For work, for internet, for DVDs and of course for games. The ipower 5000 laptop combines everything without huge amount of money (Packard Bell ipower 5000 2.4Gz Gforce420 go 256DDR 30GB CD-DVD)… Read Full Review

I have the 3Gz Type 60GB HD and DVD-RAM. I had so much trouble with with the DVD. Many DVD's I had to place in the garbage bin, with different burning software. The CPU is not that fast for 3Gz. I hope I will have no more trouble. For me no more Packard bell
