Pros Amazing screen; nice built-in keyboard; PS1 games (!); ergonomic design; lightweight; great hardware (Tegra 2, 1 GB RAM, etc.); just AWESOME!
Cons Not many cons...screen does scratch somewhat easily, but it's not noticeable, and as long as you take care of the thing and clean it regularly it should be fine.
Summary I don't know why all these people on CNET are hating. Especially mentioning the plastic build. This plastic is definitely not cheap. In fact, it's apparently magnesium. Personally, I think the Sony Tablet feels very solid, especially considering the weight. Also, the textured back is a huge plus! I would definitely recommend this tablet to anyone! The ergonomic design, by the way, is NOT a gimmick. It really works!
Pros I like the tablet. The remote control feature is cool and the eReader app is also nice.
Cons The WORST customer service experience I have ever had. Every level of people I talked to, especially those at the top national level, were very rude and did not want to help. This alone has made me never want to buy another Sony product.
Summary I was really excited about the tablet. Once I got it, I immediately bought a case for it off of Sony's website. The description Sony gave said it "offers premium protection from scratches and external abuse". Two months later, the tablet was in its case in my bag. I took it out and the entire screen was shattered. Everything else worked fine, but it was much harder to see with all the scratches. I was very upset, but I felt like this could be the case's fault because it obviously did not do what Sony said it would. So I called their customer service, and after speaking to literally 10 different people, I was finally told I could send it in and the techs would look at it and determine if it was the fault of the case. If they saw it was, Sony would pay for the repair. After a few days, I went online to check the status. I was told it would cost $333 to fix. I would have to pay $333 to fix my $399 tablet. It took me quite a while to save up for the tablet, and now I would have to pay almost the same amount to repair a piece of glass. I was surprised because I was almost sure that Sony would see it was the fault of the case. I called customer service again, spoke to 5 other people, and was finally transfered to Sony's national level of customer service. The man I spoke to here was the rudest, most arrogant, unfelpful person I have ever talked to in my life. He blamed the shatter on me, said I need to pay for it, and said that technicians automatcally say that a shatter is the customers fault. I asked why the one person said that the techs may see it was the cases fault and not mine, but he said he cant comment on other agents comments. While I do see that this could be my fault, this man was so rude about it. He never once apologized for the experience I was going through with Sony, and it was obvious he did not care about me or my tablet. This man alone has made me never want to buy a Sony product again. I then found out that the Sony repair center sent the tablet back to me without ever directly notifying me about this. When I tried talking to the national level again, a guy answered the phone saying "Hello sir. Thank you for calling about your tablet that was subject to customer physical damage and that we cannot repair. How may I help you?" He sure knows how to answer the phone nicely. I used to be a huge fan of Sonys, but now my next product I am going to buy will be from Apple. Goodbye Sony. Good job on loosing a customer.
Pros good design.
Cons while using it automatically shuts down for no reason. juss one month old and now its not charging. terrible customer care service. and my hard earned money gone and now i dont know when will i get it back from service centre or it will work properly
Summary sony really needs to improve its customer care and service support. and use better quality . will never buy sony product again.
Pros Nice in hand feel. Easy to read on.
Cons Fragile, horrible customer service, repairs cost as much as a new unit. Hardware is outdated. Built in Sony Apps are pointless. Have to strip away all Sony apps and download better ones. Not many accessories readily available.
Summary No words. Selling my Tablet for parts. Screen is cracked (works fine) but Sony insist I pay over $300 for repairs. Selling my Sony Vaio. Sony has killed me as a PC I will be reborn a MAC
Pros I brought the Duracell Mobile 100 car charger. I plug my ac adapter into the charge and plug into my car charger. Works perfectly! No problems.
Cons You will need to have a 12 volt car charger outlet or it will not work.
Summary I have brought several different car chargers claiming they will work on my Sony S Tablet and none have worked. I should sell them to get my money back. I paid 40.00 for this Duracell mobile 100 and it is worth every penny. You can purchase at any electronic store (got mine at Electronic Express). Just remember you will need to have a 12v charger outlet. Hope this helps us Sony tablet users. My grand kids can watch endless movies. Hallelujah!
