Reviews for the Trekstor Vaio SX14-VJS141C11L

70% VAIO SX14 review: Lots of ports mean business
Source: The Verge English
In short, the VAIO SX14 is a laptop which is rather evenly divided between positives and negatives: good performance, a very lightweight and stylish body, and a good display is offset by an awkwardly small touchpad and disappointing battery life. However, its star attraction is the impressive number of ports that it has available, which could be very handy for travelers who use a lot of connections and don’t want to carry an extra dock around with them. If that’s what you need — maybe there are still times when a VGA port could come in handy — you could do worse than the VAIO SX14.

Comment

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


Trekstor:

TrekStor GmbH is a German hardware company which sells entertainment electronics such as USB sticks, external hard drives, satellite receivers, MP3 players, e-book readers, tablet computers and smartphones. The predecessor company TrekStor GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 2001. After an insolvency in 2009 the renamed Trekstor GmbH became a subsidiary of the Chinese Telefield International Holdings Limited.

There were several reviews in 2014 and 2015, yet hardly any in 2016. The ratings tended to be below average to poor. The market shares are low (as of 2016).


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
