Sony Vaio VGX-TP2S/B review


Stylish looks, and includes a Blu-ray drive, but lets itself down with only average picture and sound quality

Stylish looks and Blu-ray spec ; decent, natural colours ; as user-friendly as PCs get ; clean, stable DVD performance

Single Freeview tuner ; pictures are softer than the best ; not much insight to blacks ; limp sound

Media centre PCs can be great, but the Sony's picture and sound performance let it down
