Sony Vaio Signature Collection L-Series review:

 

Sony has brought two innovations to its all-in-one desktops with the Vaio L Series. The most prominent is the system design, with its tapered sides that create the illusion of pleasing thinness. The second, more subtle trick is a series of...

The Sony Vaio L21SFX boasts pleasing aesthetics with some unique touch features and an impressive array of digital media capabilities.

Due to its laptop CPU, this system is not as fast as we'd like to see for its price.

Sony's Vaio L21SFX brings with it all of Sony's classic all-in-one tricks, as well as a few new ones in an expensive package of which the value falls just short of its price tag.

Great PC

 

This is the best PC I have ever owned - Sony knows how to do things right, just look at how nice the computer looks. It is also very fast and able to handle many open programs (iTunes, IE, Office, etc). Great PC!!

Great looking - Fast

Slow Start - Up

An amazing desktop with just one little issue

 

I love my Signature collection VPCL2. The white is just nice, and was my decission maker for the Signature Collection. But as expected the 5400 rpm HDD is a little slow. Win 7 needs up to 7 min start and be useable. I love the software it comes with...

Great Design; Components work well with each other; Great software package; the touchscreen is usefull and just amazing

The 2 TB drive is too slow for Windows 7

NO More WiRES...........sort of.....

 

Beautiful to look at, and not many wires (only the extra drives, usb port, etc.) A lot of "buck" , but still a nice "bang" for it. Nice features; wish it were a little faster, but still boots up and down quickly. Still need to explore it all as it's...

Beautiful to look at; no wires, blueray, tv tuner, etc

Amazing custom-build L series

 

I just got my customized L series, with the fastest processor i7 and lots of other upgrades. It's a fantastic machine. The huge screen will take a couple of days getting used to and it wasn't evident how to adjust brightness (it's in the Vaio Manual),...

beautiful machine, thin, cool and huge screen, fast setup

keyboard could be a little more sturdy/less cheap looking, but is still ok

Worth the wait!

 

Well, I must say as a Sony fan, the L117FX has been well worth the wait and wait I did. First off I was replacing my RZ-14G my 8 year old Vaio desktop and in 8 yrs never a problem or issue (just upgrading to the max). So I was looking for something...

Blu-Ray, touch screen, wireless,1080P,1TB harddrive,6gigs of memory

Most Exciting Computer

 

I have owned the Vaio VPCL117FX for a few months now, after getting one of the first models to land in the US and I have to say it's the most exciting computer I ever used; and I have used a lot having spent my professional life at the edge of high...

FAST, reliable, exciting, nice design, has everything

Touch screen not as sensitive and accurate say as an iPhone

Sony's Best VAIO yet!

 

I have owned several Sony VAIO Desktops and Laptops for years now, and this is without a doubt Sony's best product. The touchscreen is without a doubt the best feature, the 1TB hard drive size is amazing, 6GB of RAM speed up anything you do, blu-ray...

Touchscreen, Hard Drive Size, Windows 7, too many features to list
