Consumer review (

Packard Bell iXtreme X5620uk


Fast machine, incredibly easy to set up, good placing of USB ports, some at rear, some on top, some at front making them easily accessible, value for money, modern facade, speedy delivery. Perfect for general use.

Case vibrates incessantly, top DVD drive button doesn't work, photoframe doesn't work, mouse and keyboard bottom quality, no manual although not really necessary as everything is self explanatory, too much junk software installed, I cleared most of it...

Very quick and easy to set up even for none tech users.

No opportunity to upgrade the OS software at time of purchase. Minor point but the description did not state mouse and keyboard included, we purchased a mouse and keyboard separately and had to return it!

Fast, good for CAD work I've found, love this machine!!

I didn't want Norton Antivirus and it's too well integrated into everything initially with the offer of a free trial - so a pain to get rid of!
