Sony VAIO K Series Review (pics, specs)

 

I have always been a Sony fan for many reasons. Sony is often on the cutting edge of electronics and I find no exception to this with my new VAIO K series laptop.

Big 15-inch display; multiformat DVD+RW/-RW drive; 802.11b/g wireless.

Slow performance; giant AC adapter.

Other mainstream notebooks, such as the Toshiba Satellite A45, offer more bang for the buck than the Sony VAIO K series does.

"The Cindy Crawford of Laptops!"

 

The Sony PCG-K45 has received mixed reviews since its $1400.00 introduction in March 2005. This hasn't harmed its reputation though; a year later, it's still #4 among the highest selling laptops in the US. The reason is obvious. This full-keyboard...

"Totally Disappointed!"

 

The power adapter I can get over. I can even endure the weight to lug the K15 around the city, or across the country and to other nations as I have done. The 'brite screen' is fab; and this computer has all the bells and whistles! Wireless, large hard...

Great Screen size and brightness, 60Gb hard drive, with wireless. Geat paper weight.

Heavy, power adapter way too big, restore disk is useless

"Embarrassing Battery Life"

 

I read all the reviews before buying this machine but i made the stupid mistake of not listening to the masses. Sure this thing is full of features, but with a 30-45 minute battery, you might as well get a desktop. If you have to stay within 9 feet of...

"K17 - Worst computer I've ever owned"

 

3 or 4 months after I bought this machine, it started to overheat and then shut itself down. Sending the machine in for repair took about 7-10 days. A few months after I got it back, it died again. It wouldn't turn on.

Nice screen

Unreliable, power problems, poor customer service, nightmare voice recognition system on the support line
