Reviews for the VAIO SX14 VJS144X0711S

75% Vaio SX14 notebook review: Uniquely Japanese
Source: Hardware Zone English
However, these are not deal-breakers by any means. No, the biggest issue is its price. With prices starting at a dollar under three grand, the SX14 is easily one of the priciest notebooks in its class. And apart from its rather good connectivity and incredible weight, there’s little else to justify its premium. Performance and battery life are decent but not exceptional, the screen is only Full-HD and non-touch, and while connectivity is mostly good, there’s no SD card reader. Made in Japan quality? Sure, the notebook feels nicely put together, and it is really thin and light, but the same can also be said for many other notebooks that are made elsewhere. And with lots of excellent choices at and around the S$2,000 to S$2,500 price range, it’s hard to say that this notebook offers value for money. In the end, while the Vaio SX14 is competent in many aspects, its high price will likely deter most notebook shoppers. Still, it will find fans among diehard Japanophiles and users who absolutely need a thin and super light notebook with all the connectivity options that the SX14 offers.

2022 Vaio SX14 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The 2022 redesign of the Vaio SX14 premium 14” business Ultrabook addresses the improvements we wished for in previous models. The carbon fiber chassis is rigid yet extremely light and as ever there’s a great selection of ports including 2 Thunderbolt 4, USB-A, HDMI and even Ethernet. The laptop has a Sharp brand IPS display supporting pen and touch (non-touch also available), has an enlarged trackpad, and ships with Windows 11. It’s available with Intel 11th gen Core i5 and i7 CPUs, has a fast PCIe4 SSD, presence detection and a Windows Hello IR camera plus fingerprint scanner and it’s available in some stunning colors like our white with a stainless steel look interior.

Perhaps it’s because the Vaio SX14 comes from Japan, but it really is a rather unusual notebook. The design is highly functional. It’s thin and light but sacrifices little in terms of connectivity. I can’t think of another notebook in its class that has USB-C, USB-A, HDMI, and even a proper Gigabit Ethernet port. Build quality is high and the notebook incorporates some nice touches such as the hinge mechanism that props the notebook up, a large keyboard, and a physical privacy shutter that covers the camera when its not in used. But it’s also quirky in many ways. The large vents on the side is a bit of an eyesore, plus it expels a lot of hot air which heats up the area to the left of the notebook substantially. Also, the bezel above the display is large, the power button has a bright green LED indicator, and the trackpad is non-clickable. However, these are not deal-breakers by any means. No, the biggest issue is its price. With prices starting at a dollar under three grand, the SX14 is easily one of the priciest notebooks in its class.

Intel Iris Xe G7 80EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 80 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

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.


i5-1155G7: Tiger Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. Clocks from 1 GHz (12W) to 2.5 GHz (28W) base speed and up to 4.5 GHz (one core with Turbo Boost). Produced in 10nm+ at Intel.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

75%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
