Packard Bell oneTwo LI5871 review

£950 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Packard Bell

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

With its 23in touchscreen and speedy Core i5-2400S processor, Packard Bell’s oneTwo LI5871 is a great mid-range all-in-one PC with a home-friendly design and a good set of features.

Featuring a 23in full-HD touchscreen and built-in DVB-T tuner, Packard Bell’s oneTwo LI5871 could make a great multimedia PC. It also features a quad-core Intel Core i5-2400S which gives it a performance edge over entry-level dual-core models. See also Group test: what's the best all-in-one PC?

Its outward design is simple, but effective. A hinged picture-frame style stand protrudes from the back allowing you some degree of tilt adjustment and a recessed area in the top of the case provides a handle grip, making the PC considerably easier to move from room to room.

The styling is minimalist and effective – save for the absolutely huge illuminated Packard Bell logo sitting at the bottom right, which would have been a serious distraction had it not been fitted with its own dedicated off switch.

A pair of USB 3.0 ports and an SD card reader sit on the left-hand side of the PC, complemented by four USB 2.0 ports at the back where you’ll also find a handy HDMI input. This allows you to connect external AV devices.

However we were unable to find any picture control buttons to set basic functions such as brightness. There’s no video output available, and audio output is limited to the headphone socket

Application performance on the oneTwo LI5871 comes out slightly ahead of both the Toshiba Qosmio DX730 and MSI’s AW2211G-011EU, with a WorldBench 6 score of 137 points. None of these three PCs feels particularly fluid when using the touchscreen interface.

Packard Bell has, like many manufacturers of touchscreen PCs, come up with its own software environment to overcome the clumsy Windows 7 interface. Such things can often be disappointing, but Packard Bell’s ‘TouchPortal’ is a great deal easier to use than most and worth a try.

Also included are full copies of Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, Premiere Elements 9 and CyberLink’s ‘YouCam’ webcam software with its amusing special effects and avatars. It makes the oneTwo LI5871 ready for family fun straight from the box.

With its 23in touchscreen and speedy Core i5-2400S processor, Packard Bell’s oneTwo LI5871 is a great mid-range all-in-one PC with a home-friendly design and a good set of features. It comes with a TV tuner, but lacks Blu-ray and has weak gaming performance.

    Asus E2700INTS

    The Asus E2700INTS is a very impressive system which can replace a desktop PC, TV and Blu-ray player with a single, smart and powerful device.

    If you want maximum gaming performance for the minimum spend, then the MSI AE2211G-011EU is the all-in-one for you.

  • Packard Bell Liberty Tab review

    Packard Bell Liberty Tab

    The Packard Bell Liberty Tab has a slightly different look from some of the other 10in Android tablets with smart silver-coloured accents along its top and bottom and a browny-red rear plate. In other words, Packard Bell has successfully disguised the Acer Iconia tablet that lies within.

    When a navigation device that's available for just £110 landed on PC Advisor's review desk, we weren't expecting a lot. And not a lot is exactly what we got.
