Sony Vaio - Black screen issues.
Leslie Blackmore, Amazon
3 March 2014
Summary: Had two in 3 months both screens went black and laptop would not work, would never purchase a Sony Vaio ever again after these issues, can except one being faulty but two of the same model is unacceptable and spent time without internet use whilst waiting for a replacements....
Summary: My biggest mistake was buying it from Top Electrics through Amazon. Why Amazon deals with this mickey mouse company I don't know. From the start it gave problems, but I thought it was me getting used to Windows 8. I and others battled to download programs...even Nortons spent hours fiddling remotely with it. Finally Nortons found 27 viruses...two of them worms.
Summary: I have worked in IT for 25 years and in that time built countless PCs from components (for home use) and installed OS's on countless desk and laptops - Windows server and desktop variants and Linux and UNIX. This is by some margin the most unstable piece of kit I have ever come across and I will never let my daughter influence choice of h/w for her again - you cannot go wrong with HP laptops, as per my son's PC.
Summary: Very Bad as the palm rest started getting black spots on it immediately after i started using it, and windows 8 crashed, within the first week. The calender app would not open and neither would the photo app or half the other ones. I wouldn't recommed it. Maybe i got the baddest in the batch, but i'm dissapointed. so i returned it before the return date and got a full refund.
Summary: Shame on Microsoft for launching a product which is blatantly incompatible with with this (Sony laptop.) Or, how stupid are Sony for preloading this laptop with software that simply doesn't work! The touchpad is awful, it is completely inaccurate as it bounces off and away from what you are pointing the cursor at making this laptop virtually impossible to use! I didn't buy this through Amazon, but having brought this product in Bali I read the Amazon reviews!
Summary: Very plasticky case, cheap looking and horrendous touchpad. Touchpad makes a noise every time you touch it and it will drive you mad! so disappointed as have had a good, solid Vaio for the last 6 years. Sony seriously need to reconsider this machine.
Summary: Let's get this straight- this is a great laptop from Sony...the keyboard's more good-looking and ergonomic, the screen is brighter, the battery life is way better and the processor is faster than my wheezy old 6 year old Vaio. So far, so good, then...so why the bad rating? Windows 8 in concert with Norton antivirus...just hateful: I've lost count of the number of times a 'This Page Cannot Be Displayed; Check the Site and Reset Internet Connexion' alarm comes up..
