5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent PC, December 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony VAIO F2 Series VPCF237FX/B 16.4-Inch Laptop (Matte Black) (Personal Computers)
Flawless machine. Understand the negatives if you read the specs: (1) weight (2)battery life (3) bloatware (but that is ubiquitous and SONY is no worse than most--and you can get a clean start if you order from SONY).

What is excellent is the video quality: both streaming and BlueRay. I love the touch of the chicklet keyboard and the fact that it is backlit. (I write several hours a day). Heat is no issue and fan noise is remarkably quiet--especially compared to my ASUS G50V that it replaces. I do large database runs and I'm amazed at the I-7 processor. Not a heavy gamer, but based upon my database and video quality experience I would expect excellent performance.

When SONY gets something right, I think they have excellent products.

Hi Gary,
I like the specs on this laptop, my Q for you is about the fan noise, is it loud or distracting as listed on the other reviews. I have to leave my laptop working overnight so pretty much it works M-F non stop, but my concern is it overheats the fan will start plucking sooner or later.
I appreciate your reply. John

I likewise am concerned about fan noise. I had earlier problems with HP and ASUS notebooks. I have had no issues with fan noise and find it quieter than my HP desktop (which is older). I crunch large databases, often getting window alerts about resources, but I don't notice any issues when the machine is working hard. I would buy this machine again. Can't really speak to 24X7 continuous use, but I do use the heck out of this machine. I've been happy with it. Weight (of course) is the only issue for me.
