Review Sony Vaio VPC-F21Z1E/BI 3D Notebook

26 April 2011
  • Summary: 3D Vaio. Sony Vaio's leap into the 3D world gives reason for excitement thanks to F21's perfect full-HD display and its undimmed 3D picture. The level of craftsmanship and choice of materials used for the case don't quite meet the demands of the premium sector, however.
  • Pros: Big Color Space, Large Viewing Angles, Anti-Glare Screen, Very High Screen Brightness, 240Hz 3D Display with Active Shutter Glasses, Easy-to-Use 3D for Blu-Rays and Games, Good Gaming Performance WITHOUT 3D, Great Application Performance, Low Case Temperature, Good Fan Controller, Blu-Ray Burner; 8GB RAM, Highly Responsive Backlit Keyboard, The bright screen with vivid colors and and a broad range of viewing angles.  3D effects at the touch of a button, even for norma...
  • Cons: Poor Gaming Performance WITH 3D, Loud Under Heavy Use, Sensitive High-Gloss Case, Flimsy Display Lid, Placement of Ports, A matte case with the craftsmanship of the F11, F12 and F13 models.  A more powerful GPU so that games wouldn't run so choppy in 3D.

3D Sony VAIO laptop Review of VPCF21Z1E

11 February 2011
  • Excerpt: 3D has become a rage ever since James Cameroon’s Avatar hit the screens. Sony has been a big force behind the concept of 3D with their Blu-ray products and they have now gone one step further by cramming 3D displays in to a laptop which is armed with Intel’s newest Sandy Bridge processors. 3D Sony VAIO VPCF21Z1E is portable than an average 3D TV but still you won’t be watching any 3D movies on this laptop while in a train. It is really big laptop with height of 46mm.

Sony Vaio VPC-F21Z1E review

Pocket Lint
15 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Sony's monster Vaio F is a hefty beast, weighing in at a knee-crunching 3.1kg. It's a Sandy Bridge Core i7 multimedia powerhouse that'll handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. Nvidia graphics give it 3D video, and the large screen is ready for 1080p Blu-ray video. Could this be the ultimate multimedia laptop?
  • Pros: With Core i7, 1080p 3D screen, backlit keyboard, Blu-ray drive and 3D, this is all the entertainment you need
  • Cons: Too heavy for laps, too pricey for many pockets and the audio quality doesn’t match the excellent screen

  • Excerpt: We’ve seen laptops capable of rendering 3D before, but Sony’s luxurious – if perversely titled – Sony VAIO VPCF21Z1E/B is undoubtedly the best so far.

Test: Sony VPC-F21Z1E - 16-Zoll-Entertainer mit 3D

12 July 2011
  • Summary: Sony verfolgt mit dem schicken VPC-F21Z1E vor allem eine Zielsetzung - die möglichst eindrucksvolle Wiedergabe von 3D Blu-rays durch ein Notebook. Gute Voraussetzungen dafür schafft das verbaute, 16 Zoll große Full-HD-Display. Mit seiner vergleichsweise hohen Helligkeit und dem guten horizontalen Blickwinkel ist es deutlich besser für 3D-Wiedergabe geeignet als viele Displays der Konkurrenz.
  • Pros: mattes Full HD-Display mit relativ hoher Helligkeit, guter 3D-Effekt, leistungsstarker Prozessor
  • Cons: Grafikleistung kaum ausreichend für aktuelle Spiele in 3D, Eingabegeräte, begrenzte Mobilität (sperrig, hohes Gewicht, kurze Akkulaufzeit)
