Another Quality Product...
The picture quality is superb.The surrounding desktop frame is only about an inch wide,so the shiny black finish won't cause too many 'dirt & fingermarks problems.'
Most All-In-Ones I saw had inadequate speakers(too many product specs and reviews sadly ignore this aspect),but Sony's 2x2 watts are more than loud enough and less 'tinny' than most.
Having demo'd the Acer- too cumbersome a unit; the Asus and Lenovo- poor speakers; the HP and Packard Bell models- too much cheap, shiny black plastic; the Sony achieves a tremendous all-round package.
The first thing that strikes you is the compactness, appearance and quality of this All-In-One Desktop.
Note that I did not want a touch screen and have not used it, but there were so few 'non-touch models' and none that fulfilled my needs.
I have only used it for three days, but these are my observations:
Quality of build. High quality picture. Fast i3 processor works well. Speakers more than adequate for music and films.
Bought from Sony UK, the fast delivery and support are excellent. Buy it from them- ask for their best price- you will be very surprised!
The standard wired, optical mouse works well, but it is very small for the male hand. The standard wired keyboard (low profile, positive keys) works well, but the cable is hopelessly too short- you cannot use it on an 'under desk' slide-out shelf; you have to mount it on your desktop close to the computer.
I question Windows 7 when compared with Windows XP. It seems to me that Microsoft has achieved a mid point between the awful Vista and great XP.
There are just too many obtuse and unclear paths to get where you want to go to alter your settings and configuration- I find myself continually 'searching' for answers, despite needing an obvious familiarisation period.
Why companies have to continuously change and upgrade for the sake of marketing is beyond me.
Another beautiful, quality product from Sony.
Buy it. You will not be disappointed
