An excellent, long lasting quality product, that is more than capable of most demands. Great Value!

  • Excerpt: I bought this laptop in 2006 and still am using it without any problems what so ever. I mostly use it now for word processing, email, pictures and watching films - all things it can handle easily. I used to also use it for gaming - the built in graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400) stands up to the challenge of most games. I used to play a lot of Battle field 2 on this laptop and it looked impeccable.

  • Excerpt: Three years ago I decided to retire my desktop PC and replace it with a laptop. I searched high and low, reading reviews, checking prices and constantly trying to decide which one I wanted to spend £1000 on. I eventually came across the Sony Vaio FE31M. After spending nearly £1000, I could only think that it had better be worth it. 3 years later, I can confidently say that yes, it was.

Sony Vaio's are quite expensive in comparison to other laptops, but the build quality, features, style and reliability are worth it. Over the last 3 years I have had no problems at all. I do not treat my belongings very carefully, yet the Sony has shown no sign of ...
  • Pros: It is fast, stylish, easy to use and has lots of features .

VAIO VGN-FE31H never again - had it one week then it stopped work

Joooools0..., Ciao
27 April 2009
  • Excerpt: "I had my VAIO VGN-FE31H for one week before it completely failed. Sony told me to send it back to them. Long story short - it took them a month to get a new one back to me. Within a very short space of time the print button came off. The memory card interface has never worked and actually locks-up XP whenever you insert a card into it. Prior to XP SP3 I had to disable the built in camera in order for the sound card to work. Most of the time Windows ...
  • Pros: Good looks
  • Cons: Too flakey

Sony Vaio FE31H - A year on

gazza166, Ciao
24 May 2008
  • Excerpt: "...Although it sets up fast, Sony likes to cover it with their own software, trials and pop-ups which can get annoying untul you work out how to get rid of them. The screen is nice and bright, which was one of the reasons why I went with this laptop, although when its running off battery the screen can drain the life very fast. Great little webcam also hidden above the screen. This is easy to use and usually appears very clear when using online. Overall, ...
  • Pros: Still works well, great screen, stylish
  • Cons: Battery drains fast if screen on bright

Is it wrong to love a machine so much?

podgepig, Ciao
9 January 2008
  • Excerpt: "...that is the catchily named Sony VGN - FE31M. (The very name itself, sends shivers of anticipation... or perhaps eyebrow - raising bemusement... down your spine) To kick off my review in a predictable, inevitable and somewhat tedious way I shall bombard you with technical waffle, the likes of which you have never seen! (well, maybe you have if you have read the box it comes in). Processor: Yep, it has one. The sturdy little workhorse ...

Sony Vaio FE31H

djfost, Ciao
25 June 2007
  • Excerpt: "...the brand. I have used sony products for many years now, and have always found them to be superior to similar products from other companies. The Sony Vaio Fe31H was of course no exception. One great point about the laptop is its integration with other sony products. It includes a removeable 'expresscard' memory card reader, and also, there's a memory stick duo card slot on the front of the laptop concealed in the design to make an invisible yet ...
  • Pros: Reasonably cheap, Good graphics, Good speakers, Good battery, Good screen
  • Cons: Weight

  • Excerpt: "...this I didn't really like Sony products too much, no particular reason, just didn't. But this.... this is a brilliant notebook computer; it runs fast, it looks good, it doesn't weigh much, what more could you want? It uses core duo technology, which is a very powerful technology indeed, and causes the computer to run VERY fast. It's a T5500 which is 5.5GHz(ish). That's freaking fast, especially for a laptop. Mine came with 1GB of RAM (memory), ...
  • Pros: powerful yet light
  • Cons: screen fuzzes up a bit occasionally (for me)

El mejor portátil sin duda

Pablusius, Ciao
25 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Este portatil me lo he comprado despues de tener otros dos portátiles, se me acabaron estropeando y sin estar muy convencido de ellos. Despues de los dos portatiles anteriores aposté por una buena marca como es Sony, y ha dado sus frutos. Este portátil tiene un diseño perfecto, con una fiabilidad 100%, además sus detalles hacen que su manejo sea mucho más fácil y amplio, como por ejemplo estar perfectamente preparado para conexiones WIFI, además de ser un ordenador...
  • Pros: Diseño perfecto y fiabilidad 100%
  • Cons: Ninguno
