Sony Vaio VPCJ21L0E review


Sony's Vaio VPCJ21L0E looks good, but it's very expensive for its limited power and range of features

This extremely basic PC has few other features beyond a memory card reader and 3.5mm mic and headphone ports. You'll probably want to make use of those, as the integrated speaker sounds fuzzy and muffled, with a harsh edge to high notes. If the...

Sony Vaio VPC-J21L0E


nice looking design ; PMB software is good ; USB3 connectivity

would be nice if USB ports were also on back of machine to connect back-up drive more descretly ; it is a shame that when you turn the screen off that it doesn't de-activate the touch-screen so if you clean it stuff moves about the screen

Sony Vaio VPC-J21L0E


Easy to set up. Great screen, very clear and no mess with wires (wireless keyboard and mouse)

Delivery note only half readable. PC locked out password and only just managed to decipher help line. WOULD APPRECIATE ANOTHER DELIVERY NOTE FOR GUARANTEE PURPOSES

Sony Vaio VPC-J21L0E


Good screen quality & easy access to upgrade the ram

Noisy hard drive, it's a 7200rpm & the hum it makes tends to transfer through my desk. Adobe photoshop & premiere are only 30 day demo versions, previous models used to have elements installed, Sony do include their own PMB software but it's not as good

Sony Vaio VPC-J21L0E


Wireless set up excellent and very responsive. Screen resolution and backlighting excellent. Sony build quality is as usual impressive

CD/DVD rom drive very awkward to use and flimsy. Other usb/ flash drive inputs are also restricted if space is tight. Setup manual is online and initial setup info is poor
