Sony VAIO Fit 15E (SVF15212SNB) Review

 

Without doubt, the Sony VAIO Fit machines are very impressive. Particularly the one that we have tested here, the Sony VAIO Fit 15E (SVF15212SNB), with an MRP of Rs. 34,990. What you get are fairly standard specs for this price bracket, but the build...

Well-built, Very good battery life, Comfortable display, Audio performance is a strong point

Just 2GB of RAM, Keyboard could do with sharper response

Sony VAIO Fit 15E touchscreen notebook

 

An attractive notebook with a good set of features, but also with a few issues

Attractive ; Decent array of features ; Good screen colours

Could use a bigger battery ; Only single-band Wi-Fi ; Poor touchpad

The VAIO Fit 15E represents good value for money if you're after a 15in laptop that's attractive and reasonably comfortable to use. Its touchpad isn't good, and its battery life could be better considering an ultra-low voltage CPU is installed, but it...

Sony VAIO Fit 15E Review - Tech2

 

The Sony Vaio Fit line-up of laptops that launched recently looks quite convincing—the laptops employ ultra-low voltage processors that are used in Ultrabooks, but sport a conventional design.

The Vaio Fit 15E offers a good selection of ports, all of which are placed on the side for easy access. Half the area on the left side is taken by the exhaust vents and the rest is taken up by a cluster of ports that include a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a...

Sony Vaio Fit 15E review

 

The processor is a fairly modest Ivy Bridge i3 running at 1.8GHz (although Sony tells us that this may be upgraded to 1.9GHz quite soon). That's very much an entry-level processor these days, and the Sony Vaio Fit 15E produces a relatively modest score...

It’s nice to see Sony making a real effort to produce a decent budget laptop, and the attractive display and speakers on the Sony Vaio Fit 15E make it a good choice for entertainment and web browsing. However, it is fairly heavy and battery life is...

Consumer review by: tommywilde (newegg.com)

Good, not great

 

I bought one to see what it was like and thought I'd buy other colors if it worked. Decided to just forego the other purchases since its not as great with a backlit keyboard.

It's a keyboard skin and it fits my laptop as promised

The letters are not transparent as they are on the Sony skins. It's all painted on. So a backlit keyboard doesn't really shine thru the skin. But for $6.99, you get what you pay for

Sony Vaio Fit 15E

 

The look.

Very very slow. My old laptop was much better. Absolutely mortified that I have paid over £500 for this laptop that I hate. It is so complicated to use and very slow to respond.
