There is a rash of Sony Vaio U750P reviews that have been published the last few days.  The reviews can be found on Black Halo Inc, Notebook Review, and BargainPDA.  Oh wait, it’s the exact same review on all three sites.  Looks like the reviewer really gets around.  Never mind.  Too bad he didn’t like the U since the review is appearing everywhere.

  1. What a shame that one person’s (mostly negative) opinion appears in so many places on the web.

  2. Damn, you guys act as if I’m spreading the plague. If one person doesn’t like it, doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. As I have said before, it’s not for everybody. If you like it, then that’s great. If not then oh well. Oh yeah, it also appears in http://www.got-next.com

    That’s the beauty of freelance and affiliations.

  3. Oh yeah Notebook Review and Bargain PDA are run by the same people. And Got Next is an affiliate of black halo inc just for some trivial knowledge ;)

  4. Louie, I haven’t said anything negative about your review- I’m glad everyone is different. I do think that calling a lack of a stand a design flaw is a little misleading. After all it is meant to be used in the hand and as others have posted on other forums the $40 case that’s available has an integrated stand. But what is a design flaw to one person is a good feature to another. I do think the U shines on the road and my opinion is much different than yours.

    I posted about the multiple sites running your review because my readers can now avoid running from site to site to read the “new” review. That’s all.

  5. Oh I know you didn’t mean any negativity. I’m talking about Vidge saying it’s a shame that my work is everywhere or maybe I am misinterprating that post. Oh well, doesn’t matter. To each his/her own.

    Also, I do visit your site on a regular basis. Probably one of the best tech blogs out there and it’s definitely a site to aspire to.

  6. Thanks Louie. One question if I might- what is your current favorite mobile device?

  7. Oh and Vidge is just as entitled to her opinion as you and I are. Thankfully!

  8. Ooh… favorite mobile device? Good question. I actually like a lot of things right now. I think I’ll list!

    The Toshiba M205 Tablet PC is probably the best laptop in its class. 1.5Ghz Centrino, 512MB RAM, 60GB hard drive and GeForce FX 5200. That thing is a powerhouse and I don’t think any Tablet can top it. I also like the Vaio T150, that thing is badass considering the weight, features, and style.

    As for cellphones, it’s a three way tie between the Sony Ericsson P910 for it’s compact size and functionality, the Treo 650 for the support of Palm software and light weight, and then the iMate PDA2k for the power of the Pocket PC and graphics quality.

    And finally for the “Pure PDA” catagory, I would have to say the HP IPAQ 4155 because it’s quite possibly the most well thought out PDA HP has ever made. Extremely compact and lightweight and has everything including WiFi and Bluetooth. It’s a pity that HP didn’t continue this form factor trend because in my opinion, their new line of PDAs look hideous and they are bricks. They could’ve improved the IPAQ 4155 by releasing one with more memory and Pocket PC 2003SE.

  9. Pocket PCs in general are in a state of malaise IMO. I haven’t seen a single innovation since Toshiba introduced VGA even before the OS would support it. That’s why I’m excited about the Sharp c3000- convertible in a PDA. You should like that since you’re a convertible Tableteer.

  10. I have a short review of Sony’s LocationFree TV at: http://kytiri.blogs.com/

    I show some pictures of their integrated stand for that item (similar form factor to the U750P); it takes up almost no space externally and functions well on a hard flat surface. I wish they’d put that on the U.
