Vizio CT14-A0 Notebook Review

 

A good first step. The TV maker makes a good first effort in its foray into the notebook market. Find out what we liked and didn't like about this early Ultrabook from the fast-growing electronics company.

Very poor keyboard, Average touchpad, Non-removable battery, Almost no expandability options, High surface temperatures, No card reader or Gigabit Ethernet, No keyboard backlight

Mediocre

 

I've had this unit for a week, and have found a dead pixel on it, the trackpad, even if driver updated, is horrible. I should be, but am comparing to a macbook air. No comparison -- this unit is built very cheaply and it shows. I realize $499 won't buy...

Nice display, thin, somewhat sleek, solid state drive a big plus. fast

dead pixel, trackpad is herendous. horrible. keyboard isn't back-lit, cheap sound

Vizio CT14-A0 14" LED Ultrabook

 

Good product and super fast delivery. The battery can only last four hours.

It's a very sleek looking ultrabook. However, I noticed there is a slight problem with the touchpad as it doesn't respond at times.
