I didn't realize it would be a challenge finding a quality carry case that would accommodate my 17inch laptop, and I've looked. I was thrilled when I found this case. Service and delivery absolutely exceeded my expectations: I called company to inquire about speaking with a live person to hopefully share details that I couldn't come up with from a photograph alone. Their employees are Polite, Very Helpful and Informative. I am so happy with this bag. Quality is really good. Metallic hinges (not plastic) for shoulder straps. Extra stitching at handles. Thicker nylon material. Workmanship is fantastic. I expect to own this bag long term.
The gel-lined handle is great for times when carrying for extended periods, and the egg crate encasement is an excellent addition that makes protection while traveling, especially through airport security, all that much greater. The V-load MEV17P is truly a heavy duty solution for those who need a lot of protection as well as a lot of storage. I could not be more satisfied.
I got an offer to get this case at a discounted rate with the purchase of my new laptop. Normally, I am skeptical of offers like this, but I found this case to be exceptional. It is VERY high quality. I think I would drop it and my laptop would be just fine. A couple of layers of protection and nice pockets to hold all your accessories like chords, flash drives, and whatever else you need.
I have had several laptop cases and this is by far the very best one. I have put it through the paces and it still looks and performs great.
Initially, I ordered the Sony messenger bag. When the Sony bag came, my opinion was it was too flimsy and there was not enough padding on the inside. So I returned the Sony bag and ordered this one.
I have had many other computer bags before for other laptops and this one is the best out of everything I have had in the past. The outside material is a very durable semi-rigid ballistic type nylon. There is a compartment on either side of the bag and the laptop is placed in the middle. The outside compartments shield the laptop. The sides of the laptop seem to have some type of hard plastic inserts in them. The bag comes with a padded sleeve made of semi-rigid durable nylon and foam which offers further protection.
The total weight of the bag alone is 5 pounds, but the weight is a positive as it helps absorb shock to the laptop.
If you are looking for a bag for your HDX18 look no further. Other bags simply do not offer the protection. You do not want your $2,000 dollar laptop placed in a flimsy bag.
This bag would be great as a carry-on and I would trust it to protect my laptop against other objects in the overhead bin.
I purchased this case in January and have been using it for almost 4 months now. Initially it came without a strap......which was apparently accidentally left out at the factory. I contacted Mobile Edge directly, and they immediately resolved the issue with excellent and personal customer service. I almost never write any kind of reviews whatsoever, but since this was such a positive experience, I wanted them to get rewarded in some way if I could return the favor.
The case is large, but it is lighter than the case I had for a smaller laptop. I'm now using an 8 pound "mobile workstation" 17" class computer that's for doing real production work and is not really for work while jammed in a regional jet. (It's for 3D animation, not e-mail or word processing.) The quality of the materials on this bag are very good. It feels like the dash of an exotic carbon fiber sports car. It is put together very well. It feels like the bag could protect you from gun fire with it's textured ballistic material.
The quality of this material is better than other ballistic bags I own. The top loading case is nice, as is the padded sleeve for the laptop. There is gobs of room in here for other items and every accessory you can imagine. The price was also very reasonable. It costs about a third of what my last one cost. The only criticism I have for the bag is the split handle is not terribly comfortable for extended periods of time. However, that is really a nit picky comment considering the trade-offs in function and weight. If I ever need to replace this one, and it's doubtful that will be anytime soon, I would definitely go with another Mobile Edge product since they really have good designs, good manufacturing, and great customer service. Oh, the styling of this bag works for professional environments very well - I don't think the picture does it justice.
Like the last customer I also recently purchased and HP HDX18t laptop and soon realized that there were no retailers in my smaller city that sold a case to fit a laptop this large. I spent hours searching online for a case that fit my laptops dimensions and always wound up at a dead end after reading comments submitted by owners of the same laptop on how the cases actually didn't fit. When I first saw the review on this website I was somewhat skeptical at first, but eventually decided that I had nothing to lose so I ordered the Premium V-Load 17 inch and have now discovered that this bag must have almost been made specifically for the HDX18t. It fits just like a glove, you don't have to force it in, but it's also not going to move around in the case at all. Wearing the bag is extremely comfortable and it seems like its not even on your shoulder. Thanks so much Mobile Edge for a great product, I'll be sure to purchase from your site again!
I recently purchased a HP HDX18t 18.4 laptop..After many hours of searching I purchased a MEV17S. case and am totally pleased with the fit, quality, and overall design of this case. The HDX18t is just over 17in in length; but fits like a glove. Thanks Mobile Edge!!
