Cheaper than the laptop manufacturer's own,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Belkin Neoprene Sleeve for Upto 17 inch Laptops - Jet/Cabernet (Accessory)
I bought this for my Sony Vaio 16.4" laptop as other buyers of the same device had apparently done so. Although Sony make their own Vaio sleeves, theirs are roughly three times the price of the Belkin (as well as the branding making it pretty obvious what you're carrying).
Manufacturer accessories are obviously designed to fit perfectly while generic bags and cases are one-size-fits-all. 16" sleeves are too small for the Vaio so I was expecting this 17" to be slightly too big and it's a couple of inches bigger height-wise, but the width is fine. This doesn't bother me, I only wanted it to keep the laptop protected from dust and knocks indoors while not in use. Anyone planning to use this to transport a 16.4" laptop around may want to consider that it can slip around inside the sleeve and affect your grip.
The sleeve itself is well-made, of good quality materials and the inside is nice and soft, so no scratches. For 17" laptops I'm sure it's fine but for 16.4" users it will be a compromise.
