The fan is pretty annoying with the big noise

hongjake, Amazon
18 November 2014
  • Summary: I wish I could give it a zero star. This one was purchased online in March 2014 and was extremely slow after three or four months usage. The fan is pretty annoying with the big noise. Can you imagine that you have to wait like forever for it to start.

Works but...

Alie Brown "Alie", Amazon

  • Summary: Not good value for the price.... To make it short, here are the problems: * Can't be used on your lap without risk of clicking from below. Yes, you can click accidentally with the seam or the buttons of your pants. * Wifi is very, very bad. * Fan extremely loud. On the good side, the screen is pretty nice.... so is the keyboard.

Fantastic

James Biggerstaff MD, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great notebook. I updated everything right out of the box and have had no more connectivity problems than with my Lenovo Twist. I got a great deal on this from someone on eBay and I'm glad I did. It loads fast and the performance is excellent. The "flex" is not noticeable, I can't hear the drive or fan and I can't detect any excess heat, thought I haven't installed any program to measure it. I can't feel any hot spots.

Looks great - but worst nightmare to deal with bluetooth/drivers/hdmi connectivity issues

  • Summary: Looks great - but worst nightmare to deal with bluetooth/drivers/hdmi connectivity issues - Sony is going down because of the way they want to make money with their proprietary crap!! No wonder Apple kicked them out ...

WiFi is terrible

Scott Lerch, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: I don't feel like writing a long drawn out review but just wanted to say this laptop is pretty much useless for me since the WiFi barely works. There are known issues (at least with ones manufactured early on) where the WiFi keeps losing connection or dropping to under 1Mbps when you go more than 15 feet from the wireless router. It's a shame because for the most part I like everything else about this laptop.

Great As Long As You Make Sure Vaio Care Utility Is Manually Updated From Sony Support Website.

Mark S. Holden, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: Once I figured out the update problem, it's been great. My vaio pro 13 started off great - the i7 processor with 8gb of ram and a fast drive meant it was nice and fast. I had no problems with wifi, and frankly it found nearby routers my tablets netbooks, and previous laptops didn't see. Then windows updated to 8.1. WIFI became very iffy, and I'd need to roll back updates on a regular basis because it simply stopped working.

Please, reincarnate Vaio Z ! :)

Alex Bogatyrev, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: When I get this notebooks, I feel really sorry that Vaio Z series is gone. Nothing really wrong with this notebook, except, maybe, some lack of USB ports. But if expect to get top-level business laptop, with quality and nobleness of Z series Sony - you would be disappointed, as I was. None, I wouldn't buy this product again!

This product should be recalled

Amazon Customer, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: This is a pretty piece of junk. It is light and the screen is great. Too bad you won't be able to use it for much because the wifi connectivity is so awful. Slow connection speeds and the connection drops very frequently. It is a very expensive word processor. Sony keeps promising fixes but has refused to offer refunds to those of us that were waiting for these fixes and have had the laptop more than 30 days. This product is defective and should be recalled. DO NOT BUY.
