Please Avoid this Computer!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this computer on 10/1/12 and it was one of the more expensive mistakes I've made. I have gone through 3 hard drives in 1 year and both of my previous laptops lasted me between 6-8 years each so to have one fail after barely a year is a disappointment to say the least. I have other Sony products I love but I will never buy another Sony laptop after this.

Great computer, if you downgrade, five stars after downgrade

Bryan Ladd "Dj Bryan", Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this for work only, I could care less for live tiles, Facebook, or anything else Metro related. I have had this laptop for six months for work. For a laptop, it has all the power, decent sound, and great hard drive space. Plus a very nice screen. Also the sound from the usb to my board is incredible. It's really noticeable, and does sound excellent. With Windows 8, and work related use, I have had daily crashes. It's buggy for audio.

FAN NOISE and OVERHEATING

john, Amazon
6 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this vaio brand last year and after 4 mths, I got the fan noise problem. It is really heavy noise that it irritates me alot. I am a computer science student who chose Vaio over Mac and I have alot of Sony products with me. But this one is a disaster. I even took the laptop to a Sony tech to have the fan changed, but it did not solve the noise and overheating problem. very disappointing.

slow expensive trash

madame, Amazon
9 September 2012
  • Summary: Instead of buying a new Acer again, I chose the Sony because of the high RAM and larger hard disk space. Big Mistake! This is the slowest computer I have ever owned, taking me back to the speed of computers 10+ yrs ago. Plus, that is after uninstalling all of the games and some other useless stuff. Agreeing with other comments on here, the touchpad is a nightmare and after a couple of days can't get any right or left clicks. The sound is tinny.

Would be 5 stars if not for included Kaspersky antivirus

Pug P., Amazon
17 August 2012
  • Summary: Pros: -boots up and shuts down very quickly -super fast web browsing, especially when using the Chrome browser -nice keyboard and overall high quality feel -good battery life Cons: Built in Kaspersky anti-virus. Unlike better security software that attempts to differentite between malicious and benign threats, Kaspersky takes a "block everything" approach and forces the user to tell it what is harmless or not.

You Get What You Pay For!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: After my Samsung PC of 3 years was zapped to death, I purchased my 2nd Sony Vaio because I have always believed that sony produces great products. I have had this PC for two months so I wasn't expecting to have any issues until after a year. Well, the battery life sucks!! Vaio Care tells me my PC battery is in excellent condition but whenever I unplug it from the AC adapter charge the battery only last an hour or an hour and a half.

Not a great laptop at all!

maxtaylorenglish, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: I cant help feeling that from the moment you look at the Vaio E Series you can see clearly the corners that have been cut in order to mass produce the laptops. Sony used to assure quality but so far i have had nothing but trouble with this laptop. When i recieved it, the charger was missing from the box, i had it replaced at the outlet after a few weeks of waiting and even after that initial letdown the user experience didn't make up for my hassle.

le système fonctionne bien mais attention le PAD est malade

ahnmom, Ciao
30 January 2011
  • Summary: Bonjour à toutes et tous, J'ai utilisé avec plaisir cet ordi mais au bout de quelques mois le pad est devenu anarchiste, inutilisable quoi que je lui demande il va ou il veut clique à son bon plaisir et se met à trembler. Dans l'urgence j'ai branché une souri filaire qui fonctionne parfaitement mais gâche la mobilité de l'outil. Après deux retour en atelier le pad et la carte mère ont été changés mais le délire continu.
  • Pros: outil performant
  • Cons: bug du PAD
