I bought my Sony Vaio 9 months ago with an extended warranty. It worked well for 6 months until one day the speakers completely died on me.
I have spent the next 3 months trying to get Sony to repair the laptop for me. I spent the first month just on the phone, trying to convince tech support that my computer had had a hard drive failure. Over the next month-and-a-half they had three appointments where they sent people over to repair my computer. The first time they replaced the speakers, the second time they replaced the motherboard and the third time they replaced the sound card. All three attempts were unsuccessful; the sound still did not work.
My computer is now at a repair center. I have no computer to work on right now (I had to borrow someone else's computer to write this review).
This is my experience with Sony Vaio. Maybe you'll have a better one. Who knows?

I really don't want to spend so much time on writing this review.Basically, my first day of that purchase was lots of fun.The num-key buttons were pumping out.Therefore, I decided to change it with the same one.Then,there are more issues which I recognized as a basic pc user.First of all, the sound of the cooling fan is annoying.Second , don't buy if you are expecting to play recent games such as; Mafia2 or call of duty.Finally, I hope that Sony will come over from current economic recession so, they won't be selling dumping products at that price.

Fast, but glitchy.

The USB port (or its driver crashes) at random times, this almost always resulted in the need for a complete reboot - if you want to use USB anyways - and who doesn't. Major pain in the butt. External HD, Mouse, digitizer, speaker bricked. Ugh.

Do NOT buy, unless you like wasting your money AND time - rebooting this laptop.

I decided to buy this unit due to the only review being negative. It seems the reviewer was all upset about the finish coming off of the front of this model, there was no mention about any performance problems, or other defects that would concern me. The finish is still on, and the unit works as expected. A very good buy.
