Sony VAIO PCV-W510G review: Sony VAIO PCV-W510G


Great industrial design; three-position fold-up keyboard; beautiful wide screen; built-in flash card reader; PC Card slot.

No IR blaster to control set-top boxes; built-in speakers sound tinny; fuzzy TV quality; mediocre performance.

The Sony VAIO PCV-W510G is an attractive addition to any room, but it struggles as a fully realized TV-PC hybrid.

Product Specifications

Introducing the latest addition to the W series family. The W510G is the stylish and sophisticated desktop we all want to get our hands on. You can enjoy recording and watching your favorite TV shows with the Giga Pocket Personal Video Recorder without the hassle of video tapes! The unique folding keyboard hides all of the unnecessary controls, so it looks like an actual TV when in the TV/Movie mode. The built-in 17.5-inch wide screen LCD makes it a perfect size for the den or bedroom. But don't worry, the W510G is still a powerful desktop computer.
