Notebookcheck
17 June 2015
  • Summary: A good first step. The TV maker makes a good first effort in its foray into the notebook market. Find out what we liked and didn't like about this early Ultrabook from the fast-growing electronics company.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Relatively strong aluminum chassis, Thin and lightweight, Primary solid-state drive, Easy accessibility, Good screen quality, Relatively inexpensive
  • Cons: Very poor keyboard, Average touchpad, Non-removable battery, Almost no expandability options, High surface temperatures, No card reader or Gigabit Ethernet, No keyboard backlight

  • Conclusion: If that's true, Vizio may keep the non-touch models on the books for bargain hunters, although a touch display makes such an immense difference for Windows 8 it's hard to imagine any but the most frugal settling for touchless. Unless they really like touch pad swiping, that is.
  • Pros: Sleek, sturdy aluminum construction, Bright, high-res screen, Good performance
  • Cons: No flash-card slot, VGA, or Ethernet, Shallow, non-backlit keyboard, Lackluster battery life

Vizio 14-inch Thin + Light (CT14-A2)

PC Magazine
25 September 2012
  • Conclusion: The Vizio Thn + Light 14-inch (CT14-A2) is fast, bright, and nice to look at. But a couple of stumbles hold it back from reaching our top scores.
  • Pros: Large capacity SSD storage. Bright screen. HDMI out port. 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi. Boots and comes back from sleep almost instantly. Free of bloatware.
  • Cons: Inaccurate touchpad. Slippery keyboard. Only 4GB of memory.

  • Conclusion: If you don't need the raw processing power of the Core i7 chip in the unit that we reviewed (and we think most users could get by without it), you can get the same ritzy build quality in the CT14-A1 for a bunch less money.
  • Pros: Stylish, solid design, Bright 1,600x900 display, No bloatware
  • Cons: No memory-card slot or Ethernet, Shallow, nonbacklit keyboard, Disappointing battery life
