Consumer review (reevoo.com)

Packard Bell iMedia i2522 (Refurb)

 

Overall appearance i think is very smart. easy accessible card slots at front mean no card reader is required also extra usb ports at front very handy. find it easy tro use even though i am novice. Personally i am very pleased with my purchase.

As stated above being a novice i personally cannot see any bad points although an experienced operator possibly may find some bad points.

I like the design and the overall look of the set. I consider that the price was very reasonable, and i am happy with the performance todate. At this time since purchase I have enjoyed having the set, for the use that I required it.

So far none what so ever.
