Dead on Arrival

Alexander Albrecht "ajajr", Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: I like everything about this laptop, on paper. I was willing to pay a bit extra to get the vaunted "Sony reliability" Very shortly after one year of use, the computer stopped booting. Sony was no help. This will be my last Sony product.

Almost Perfect

G, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this laptop a little over one year ago. My older PCG-Z1WA (purchased in 2004) was showing it's age. Since I travel overseas 6 months each year, I'm a bit tough on laptops. I liked the weight, looks and quality - plus it's a Sony!! The only thing that I don't like is that I'm unable (so far) to get Solaris 10 running properly. Once that happens, this will be a 5 star laptop. Right now, it's a 4.8.

Dont waste your time with a VPCS111FM

hs, Amazon

  • Summary: Lovely machine with good specs at a high price. I thought I was paying for peace of mind and quality that will last. Within a few weeks, the screen gave problems. The battery is also loose. I battled with Sony technicians in a similar manner as the other person who wrote a review on this product. I made numerous calls, long long calls, got transferred from dept to dept and detected the Sony technicians lack of expertise.

Sounds too good to be true, because it is.

  • Summary: I bought this laptop for these reasons: -i5 procesor -good size HD -Push2TV technology -Backlit keyboard -Good looks/thin. Overall aesthetic appeal. Pros: -The computer feels great. -Light weight. -Keyboard is wonderful and backlight works great (although there is no manual switch i.e. the room must be dark for it to turn on) -Reasonably quick and decent battery life. Cons: -Lots of problems right out of the box requiring tons of driver updates.

Great Performance but Some Problems

Jeff Chambers, Amazon
1 June 2010
  • Summary: Sony's Vaio VPC-S111FM/S does a good job of balancing weight and performance. I've used mostly Think pads and Dells for the last 15 years, so this was my first Sony purchase. Ultimately, I decided to not keep the laptop and returned it to Best Buy. Strengths: - The keyboard is very good, but it had quality issues. - Keyboard back-lighting - Performance, 4GB RAM and a fast processor made this laptop nearly comparable to my desktop i7 Winx64 system. - Low noise.

Great little laptop

Ron Hillman "Ron", Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: I'm giving this laptop five stars because after using it for a week, I have yet to find something to criticize. I paid $1049 at BestBuy, and they included in the deal the box for wirless streaming to your TV, which works well. One of the things that made this laptop stand out for me among all the choices in the store was the keyboard. Very comfortable to use, reminded me of the MacBook keyboards.

Feature rich at a reasonable price

  • Summary: I'm a web developer/designer and consider myself fairly computer savvy. I have built several computers from the ground up and was surprised when I found exactly what I wanted at Best Buy. I have been researching laptop computers for the past 4 months and consider the Sony Vaio VPCS111FM/S to be the best option for the price.

Not worth anything

J. Watson, Amazon
20 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this laptop from Best Buy on February 6, 2010, shortly after it came out. I have had nothing but problems with it and with Sony's technical support (technicians). First, the technicians had no idea the laptop existed. The day I bought the machine, I called to verify my warranty and three technicians at Sony told me I had only a one year warranty - it does actually have two years, and I think Sony finally knows this.

Great performance

B Man, Amazon
18 April 2010
  • Summary: I have been using this new VAIO for the last few weeks and it is very well built. I read a bunch of reviews and message boards to see what I was getting and have not been disappointed. I bought this to compliment a desktop computer I recently purchased with an i7 processor and the i5 in the Sony is no slouch.
