Reviews for the Sony Vaio SV-E15116FXS

70% Sony Vaio E Series (2012) Review
Source: Digital Trends English
Sony’s refreshed Sony Vaio E fits snuggly into the current mainstream laptop market, but the computer is also what you make of it. The review unit we received is a typical budget laptop that makes a few subtle attempts to class things up. It includes a good keyboard with backlighting, a stylish exterior and an aluminum lid. If you choose, you can outfit this laptop with a quad-core processor, or Radeon 7550M discrete graphics.

80% Sony VAIO E15

Overall, performance with this laptop was solid and slightly better than average compared to other 15-inch laptops. The PCMark 07 benchmark turned in a score of 2,439, which is again slightly better than others. A bump in hard drive transfer speed, however, would have improved this score (and performance).

Sony's laptops are always more than the sum of their parts—a sense of style will do that for you. The VAIO E15 is no exception and will undoubtedly turn a lot of heads in the major electronics outlets. It's a great unit overall. Still, it would be even better if Sony offered a faster hard drive option.

Sony's Vaio line of laptops has undergone its most extensive overhaul in years, resulting in new products, such as the T series ultrabook, and revamped ones, including the new E series. Sony pays some needed attention to the lower end of the midsize laptop market, with the sharp-looking new Vaio E series.

We weren't terribly enamored with Sony's previous VAIO E Series laptop, model VPCEH1FGX, when we reviewed it back in 2011. The redesigned touch pad might trip you up, but the 2012 Sony VAIO E Series is an otherwise well-designed 15.5-inch laptop that delivers fast performance and a big software bundle for a reasonable price.

80% Sony VAIO E15 (SVE15116FXS)
Source: PC Mag English
Even without the addition of a third-generation Intel processor, and the boost to processing and graphics performance that come with it, the Sony VAIO E15 (SVE15116FXS) is a strong laptop, combining slick design and solid construction with a healthy selection of hardware and software and plenty of features. Extras like webcam gesture control and a suite of premium media tools make the VAIO E15 compelling on its own, and thanks to an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 processor, the Sony VAIO E15 (SVE15116FXS) stands head and shoulders above other entry-level desktop replacements, replacing our previous Editors' Choice among entry-level desktop replacements, the Asus U56-BBL6.

80% Sony VAIO E15 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The $699 VAIO E15 is an attractive notebook that delivers power and a compelling suite of apps to leverage its third-generation Core i5 processor. In fact, the bundled software on the E15 might be worth the price of admission in and of itself for those who know how to use it. The wrap design is unmistakably Sony, and the sound is also quite good for the price. We just wish the display were brighter and the battery lasted longer.

Series:

Sony’s SV-E series was introduced in Q3 2012 as a replacement for the VPC-E budget series. It consists of notebooks from 11.6 to 17.3 inch with a price range from 800 Euro to 1000 Euro depending on the configuration. The 800 euro entry level model houses a Sandy bridge processor and an on-board graphic Intel HD3000. The more expensive 1000 euro model uses a Sandy Bridge quad-core processor and mid-range AMD Radeon graphics.

Since the E series is a series of budget notebooks aiming at average consumers, it does not has the beautiful design or state-of-the-art hardware of Sony’s high end models. But the E-series still has some ace up its sleeves: Its price is comparable to other manufacturer’s mid-range laptop, while having a much better matte display and a somewhat better backlit keyboard, not to mention a timeless design which is similar to other Sony premium notebooks.

Unfortunately, being a budget series, the E-series suffers from some flaws to cut cost, including a bad cooling system, which makes the notebook very hot during heavily gaming, no graphics switchm, which makes the battery run time below average. Despite these flaws, the Sony SV-E series is still a very attractive choice for home office users who are looking for high performance from a premium laptop manufacturer at a fair price.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.
