One of the worst thing I ever buy
23 June 2014
Summary: I thought that I was buying a new product, not a used one. The seller told me that the computer had some problems with the battery, the keyboard and the speakers, easy fixing, The product has more complicate than just the battery, the keyboard and the speakers; the connector of the computer's audio system to the motherboard is bust, the OS's key does not work anymore and the OS can't be validated (The OS isn't original), some times the computer does not turn on (even...
Summary: This laptop was a disappointment for me. I bought it more than a year ago, seemed like quite good but now I'm about to smash it into pieces because I can't stand the fan noise anymore. The fan keeps working even there is nothing bothering CPU. I've tried to update the BIOS firmware but it didn't work. I think the reason is it's manufactured with a design problem. When you open the lid, it just covers the fan air exit.
Summary: I will make this quick. Having owned and had success with previous Sony computer products, I was excited about getting another Sony product. For the last several years I have been using an IBM Thin Pad, a great machine. Knowing I had luck in the past with Sony, I felt my decision to move away from the IBM to Sony was a good one, unfortunatly for me it was not. I bought my new Sony about a year ago online.
Summary: At the top of the range price point, sony makes a decent computer - the z series is a testament to that. However at the $800-$900 range, which is where this computer falls, Sony is simply not competitive. Their materials are too cheap and their construction is simply below that of Acer, Dell, etc. The most pitiful part of this computer is the fan. It literally sounds like your computer is going to take off on runway 5.
Summary: This laptop is a do NOT buy. The fan noise is unbearable. I bought this hoping everyone was just picky, but this is seriously louder then any laptop or desktop ever owned. It's no wonder Sony is losing out to every manufacturer in every aspect of their business.
Summary: Sony VAIO SA3 Series VPCSA3AFX/BI 13.3-Inch Laptop (Jet Black) I bought Sony Vaio SA3 it very nice laptop and i love it, I love the battery life in STAMINA, it is up to 4 hours and very light and i love the material of the case..
Summary: I recently purchased a custom Sony Vaio SA--VPCSA390S-LBOM--with sheet battery. The computer arrived early and works great. But, the sheet battery won't lock on the back as it is supposed to do. It took more than an hour on the phone with the technline staff to get them to agree to do anything about it. They sent a replacement. The replacement doesn't lock, either.
Summary: I bought this cpu the day before yesterday and so it came and I was happy but then the next day, I realized that I was unpleased because it really sucks. Its slow and laggy wifi, I bought the sheet battery and its sooo heavy now. The keyboard is smaller than a regular one but bigger than a netbook computer.
Summary: Sony VAIO SA3 Series Laptop has great battery capacity, especially with the external battery attached. I don't know exactly how many hours, but I know that it's longer than seven hours. This computer is light weight and extremely portable. It feels solid and seems durable. I could probably drop it a number of times without breaking it. And I can turn it on and off easily. There's no long process of "firing it up" or down.
