Summary: I bought my Sony Vaio 9 months ago with an extended warranty. It worked well for 6 months until one day the speakers completely died on me. I have spent the next 3 months trying to get Sony to repair the laptop for me. I spent the first month just on the phone, trying to convince tech support that my computer had had a hard drive failure. Over the next month-and-a-half they had three appointments where they sent people over to repair my computer.
Summary: This has been to best laptop in the world to me.It has taken anything iv thrown at it and it plays world of warcraft with 60fps plus call of duty black ops with no problem eather and all other games iv thrown at it.Every once in a while il watch movies with is hooked to my tv.The 16.4in display is absolutly beautiful.Altho the touch pad is none responsive at times but that only minor and i really cant say anything bad about this laptop ps it does run kinda hot when...
Summary: I bought this notebook before the holiday season and I am very happy with this laptop. I haven't had any trouble with software or hardware. The specs in this machine are awesome. The Nvidia 425 video card is gorgeous, making gaming an amazing experience. Start and shutdown are fast and responsive. RAM and HDD are excellent for this price point. The chicklet keyboad is nice and the backlight is really cool.
Summary: Overall, I am satisfied with this laptop. Build quality, keyboard feel, speed and power are its strengths. However, the speaker quality is extremely disappointing. My five year old vaio has better sounding speakers. The screen resolution is very good, however, it has a slightly washed out appearance and as far as Im aware, there is no simple way to adjust that. Id like to add that I tend to be very critical..
Summary: Two of these Sony Vaio VPCF1 series lapotops failed on me. The first one, after 5 months of usage, had a keyboard failure, which Sony could not fix; so after 1 month of waiting they replaced the laptop (with an identical one). The replacement laptop (brand new) failed after 3 weeks of usage - this time the display went out. Sony refused to give me a refund, instead they simply replaced it with an identical lapotop (yet again) that I did not want.
