"DEAD SLOW. SUB-STANDARD TECH SUPPORT"2.0 starson by IFLYMAUI
Pros: Battery, design, screen, keyboard.
Cons: Painfully Slow...Slow...Slow...Slow...S low
Summary: In fairness, I've only used this for three days. I've just come from a TX to this TZ series but the difference in performance is as different as night and day.
Boot-up time is painfully slower than a turtle. There is so much JUNK at start-up that it can take as long as 15-minutes. I have been constantly cleaning and still can't gain any additional speed.
General use for internet access is excellent and this unit also reads the newer 'N' network.
I miss the direct-use buttons for opening the DVD tray or the once visable read-out info that was located just below the screen. Now I have to tilt the unit to see that data.
I love the keyboard. Slightly raised. Almost piano like. Very comfortable.
I cannot understand why Sony is justified at another $300-$400 for an extra 1GB of memory.
Not the quality I was hoping for off their top-of-the-line unit. But still loving its design as only Sony can accomplish.
