Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic screen, fast performance, looks great, optical TOSLink socket allows use of quality external sound system, nice to have everything in a (reasonably!) compact package, with no ugly boxes or stray cables.
Bad points:
Slightly noisier than I would prefer (a media centre should have a quieter fan), the keyboard and especially the mouse are not great (I replaced them with another brand), another couple of USB ports would have been welcome, music through the built-in speakers sounds awful (although the TOSLink output allows external speakers to be connected, which sounds great).

The screen is very bright and detailed with fantastic colours. It looks good on the desk, without taking up too much space.

Good large clear screen. Very compact requiring little space. VAIO Support is excellant. I am a long way off trying all the features.
Bad points:
No problems with the product but I have had difficulty getting some of my old devices to work with Windows 7 os. The computer does not seem to be as fast as I was expecting.
