"Noisy fan makes this computer a lemon"0.5 starson by conuggets
Pros: Nice design. Great screen
Cons: Noisy fan beyond my belief
Summary: I have a had a Vaio for 5 years and just decided to get a new one. My S series arrived 2 days ago and hoping I can get a refund. The fan runs constantly and goes from annoying and constant to unbelievably loud and intolerable, and I'm not even running any programs yet. It's really surprising that they ship these out like this. I have my Vaio VGN-FZ140E next to me, silent as can be, and was looking forward to an upgraded Vaio. Not the case. 2 days in and this constant whirring is driving me nuts. My wife and I tried to watch a movie last night on it and we couldn't focus on the movie because the fan was drowning it out. I hope they take it back. What a drag.
