The Good, Bad, And Ugly....

sNAz, Amazon
8 November 2013
  • Summary: I own the laptop for about 8 months and there's a lot of ups and downs. First off, the laptop screen is amazing probably one of the best LED on the notebook market. The aluminum cover and the light weight (a lil under 4 lbs) will suck you right in. The processor combined with Toshiba mSATA 128gb is a perfect combination of speed and multitasking. 4gb of rams is more than enough for daily usage/games.

Not the best ultra book on the market

solid gold "KT", Amazon
12 May 2013
  • Summary: I decided to give the vizio ultra laptop a try given its reviews on amazon and looks on the vizio website. The goods: - The screen HD resolution is great but that is about the best thing associated with this laptop. - It looks sleek (you will get a lot of compliments) - it is very light and easy to carry around - battery life is satisfactory. The bads: -The keyboard keeps "malfunctioning"..

Would not recommend

sateveuser, Ebay
7 May 2013
  • Summary: The laptop looked great, very slim and light. Had great picture quality. I thought I would keep this for at least 3 - 4 years. But I soon found out that it has some big problems - at least in my opinion. The mousepad has a mind of its own. The mouse pointer on the screen does not follow the path of your finger on the mouse pad. It is at its worst when you try to click on the left button or the right button.

Touchpad ruins everything

Nexus7, Amazon
21 April 2013
  • Summary: I tried a lot to use this machine, in spite of the touchpad locking up (after a few minutes of use sometimes, sometimes maybe an hour) always. Applied every driver update Vizio's support staff asked me to, following the precise order of the steps they wanted. Never fixed the problem. Sent it back for repair, it came back and locked up within the hour.

All the reviews on the trackpad are true - even if you update the driver

Travis Mitchell, Amazon
18 January 2013
  • Summary: Even with good hw specs for the price unless you want to use it as a frisbee you need a mouse. Unacceptable for this price. Sending it back. Updated the driver immediately and it froze up within an hour. Better luck next time Vizio.

Update: Vizio Tech Support Ruins Their Corporate Image

Thomas M, Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: My wife needs a new laptop because her old Toshiba (upgraded to Windows 7) is getting cranky. For Christmas, I planned to get her something special, so decided on the Vizio CT15-A5 Ultrabook. We like the hardware, but Windows 8 sucks so badly, she won't use the computer. We can't properly rate the Vizio without using it. I gave it 3 stars because the hardware seems fine but Windows 8 is abysmal. So what's a husband to do?

Crappy keyboard, sharp edges, noisy fans

MalcomMagnesia, Amazon
16 December 2012
  • Summary: I've had this machine 9 months now. It is a good computer trapped in an awful physical device. The keyboard is really bad, and gets worse with time to the point of being unusable. One thing which does help, though, is frequent vacuuming of the keyboard to remove dust and dirt. The fans turn on all the time. They are high pitched and annoying. The edges of the machine are crazy sharp and uncomfortable.

Defective Battery - Questionable Quality

Tomgadgets, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: **EDIT - April 10 2013: After deliberating for 4 months and looking at the latest 15.6" laptops, I finally settled on the HP dv6t-7300 Quad Core with 1920x1080p 15.6 inch screen. The HP is a serious powerhouse with 2.4-3.4GHz Quad Core CPU and state of the art Nvidia GT-650m 2GB graphics card. It has all the ports I wanted, and a DVD/BlueRay drive plus backlit keyboard.

Great screen but track pad mouse makes this one a no-go!

Not happy "Bummed in CO", Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: I read the reviews about this laptop and the issues with the trackpad. I noticed a new driver on the Vizio website and took a chance on it. I downloaded the new driver and noticed no difference at all. Bottom line is that the trackpad is a dud. Mouse locks up on screen, and it jumps around when you lease expect it and this became too frustrating for me. I will be returning mine despite a beautiful display screen and prompt booting.
