Sony VAIO E Series Review

 

The Sony VAIO E provides a strong mix of style, performance, and multimedia features, but it's not for everyone. If you're looking for the best possible multimedia system, you may want something with better sound. You also might want to hold out for...

Attractive design with several color options, Strong graphics performance, Crisp Blu-ray playback, Good webcam

Weak battery life, Friction-heavy touchpad, Tinny speakers, Mediocre viewing angles

Sony VAIO E Series

 

A head-turning design, good graphics performance, and smooth Blu-ray playback make this 15.5-inch notebook a strong choice for home use.

Attractive design with several color options ; Strong graphics performance ; Crisp Blu-ray playback ; Good webcam

Weak battery life ; Friction-heavy touchpad ; Tinny speakers ; Mediocre viewing angles

If you want a notebook with a conservative look that will fade into the wallpaper, don't buy the VAIO E Series. However, if you desire a colorful, exciting design that really turns heads, the VAIO E is for you. However, it's not made for road warriors....

Expert Review

 

This bright sub-$1,000 notebook handled multitasking well, and its CPU was powerful, though it struggled with 3D gaming. Moderately demanding users with a hankering for color will like this model.

Solid, beautiful industrial design, Comfortable keyboard, Bright, colorful display

Short battery life, Bulky

Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEB36FG) notebook

 

The aqua colour of the Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEB36FG) may not be appealing to many people, but don't fret: it's also available in white, red, black and green. It's a 15.5in notebook that has many things going for it; it feels very well built, it has a...

Full HD screen, excellent keyboard, well built, ExpressCard/34 slot, good performance ;

Terrible touchpad, annoying preinstalled software, no Blu-ray drive ;

As the screen has a 1920x1080 resolution, high-definition movies will look great on it. However, standard-definition content will look a little too blotchy and pixelated — you'll have to sit a fair way back from the screen in order to mask some of...

Sony VAIO E Series review

 

Sony's latest isn't the lightest laptop on the block, but it is packed full of features and topped with a 1080p screen

Worth it for the HD screen alone, but the rest of the laptop defies the price point, too

Sony Vaio E Series

 

Good expandability ; Decent power for the price

Textured touch pad isn't nice to use ; Low screen quality ; Low battery life

Sony's E series are perfectly good budget laptops, with the only real detractors being the screen quality and battery life. But for the price, what you're getting is a good deal.

Do not buy this product !!!

 

This product is appalling. I have this product for more than 8 months now. I have never had a non-trouble period. First, the wifi would not work. Then, the computer crashed and got bricked when I tried to do a factory reset. Sony does nothing to help...
