HDTV: Video of the Sony Vaio UX50

Once again Akihabara News is at the cutting edge when it comes to exclusive HD videos of the nicest gadgets, and today we feature the Sony UX50! The manufacturer has just started supplying the first machines to the retailers yesterday and today, and the UX90 should hit the shelves by the end of this week. A number of shops like Yodobashi Camera have some demo machines on display from this afternoon onwards and some other shops have not received their units yet, so this really is HOT news!

So, without further ado, here’s the HD video of this new beast!

The Flash Video is now OK here !

    Nice review. I liked the software rant. Its one that I think a lot of us have gone through :D Just a few questions. How heavy is this anyway? Does it feel solid or cheap? How often does the fan turn on?

    I’m looking forward to more video reviews. Thanks.

    I already make some video yesterday, there is not everything you asked (sorry), but well you will see

    The important thing is that you should go for the UX90 with a 1.2GHz CPU there is a HUGE difference between the UX50 and its 1.0GHz

    Thank you Daimaou, I have been searching the internet for some actual reviews of Sony UX, there are tons of "reviews" by people who have never seen it and "review" it based on press releases, but it is hard to find some hands-on information. Your review was exactly what I have been looking for, I am looking forward to the next video!

    I tried a demo unit on the weekend. The keys were a real dissapointment. They are basically flush with the slide out section and give very little feedback. The enter key is especially horrible. I guess for thumbing its ok. The unit as a whole felt very nice in my hands. I’m hoping someone will get hold of one and load MS Tablet PC OS onto it and review it as a UMPC. I had a feeling though that the screen wasn’t too accurate when using the pen, but that could be due to the in-store demo unit not being calibrated properly.

    wait to see the Video of tomorrow !

    How GeekStuff4U succeed to make a UX50 1Ghz booting 15sec quicker than a UX90 1.2GHz…

    But basically this is a good product but SONY changed it into a crappy product with 0 optimization ! And the Calibration is really OK here, not as perfect as a TPC but well

    Now The sad point that the OS is not a Tablet PC true… and I am waiting for the ASUS UMPC… OH YEAH ! (Which will be sold on GeekStuff4U too )

    can you pls atleast tell us abt the keyboard and skype?

  • Daimaou

    Well Skype work well, the Video mode is "OK" but don’t expect to run other things while “Skyping" Not for the Keyb… well 2 choices

    1) U’d better have thin finger
    2) Get some nails

    But really this is OK, well just for quick typing otherwise forget about it

    if the keyboard is that bad then can you tell us:
    1. If one can scribble handwritten emails? i.e. send emails as an attachment in your own handwriting, either converting them to text or better still NOT converting them?

    2. does voice command work on office applications through bluetooth or through a voice recognition software like dragon?

  • athreya

    dude
    what abt the second part of your video review? the keyboard? skype? voice command? WRITING out emails ?
