Consumer review by: Luqman (

Sony Vaio VPC-F23Z1E


Have a 3D screen and good video quality. Great for entertainment.

A lot of software issues, like touchpad, ethernet connection and so on ... This does not mean that I had got a hardware problem. Also the machine a bit heavy.

Sony Vaio VPC-F23Z1E


The performance is much better than my previous one and the screen is very clear.

I am not convinced about 3D on a laptop. Battery life is not up with the best performers..

Sony Vaio VPC-F23Z1E


It is 3D

It has a major fault. It does not work with the sonny 3D camera which is why I bought it. Absolutly stupid. I will never reccommend or bou a sonny producy again if they cannot even get a simple thing like compatability between products right.
