Summary: I ordered this pc from SONY on 12/11/10. It came DOA. I called SONY and the first techman I saw was 1/3/11! Harrived with the WRONG PARTS! On 1/8/11, another techman showed again with the WRONG PARTS! I then called SONY and demanded a refund. The SONY support person told me to generate a RA# return. What he didn't inform of was that he also could have offred me free return postage.
Summary: After using this computer a few months the TV tuner quit working. A message "All TV tuners are currently in use" appears in the dialog box as the application tries to start. Sony online "help" could not give me an answer to the problem, but wanted to sell me a service contract instead. They also claimed I have a virus causing the problem that "no anti-virus program could detect".
Summary: Hello, I have been wanting this PC for almost a year. It finally went on sale and I grabbed it. I was very satisfied with it until I discovered a problem copying large files to any connected USB devices. In my case, I have to transfer large video images. When I tried to copy them to a USB drive, it would lock up Windows 7. Google Searches seem to indicate this is a common problem and many hardware vendors are coming up with bios patches.
