If you are thinking of purchasing one of these..don't....DON'T THINK ABOUT IT THAT IS...JUST DO IT! I purchased this to replace my gigajuke which did 90% of what I wanted it to but not quite everything...loading artwork from albums to the giga juke is a slow laborious job! This does everything the gigajuke does and a 1000 other things only a thousand times better, and quicker! You do however have to get a home cinema system to get the best from it but this is a positive point rather than a negative as you can choose just how good you want this to sound...my old gigajuke was 100w total output whereas now i have a 1000w system which sounds incredible! I cant praise this item enough!...i would have been more than happy to pay the price tag JUST to get the music side sorted...everything else is a bonus and there is plenty of everything else...more than i will ever use! Just as an exercise in looking for value for your money why not try pricing the gigajuke up in comparison...or even a mid range hifi that will only do about 5% of what this does...and sound no better either! All in all I find it impossible and defy anyone else to give the vaio tp3 any less than 10/10! Well done sony, after several failed attempts to supply a gigajuke that does it all they have actually surpassed themselves with this, just as i was beginning to turn my back on sony products forever!
