Ok, I finally got my V so time for the first impressions.
Actually, I got a unit in December but the touch screen was defective and had a constant ghost touch on two distinct points on the top and bottom bezels, which made the unit completely unusable. As a result I organised with support for a replacement unit to be sent to me this January… and it now arrived.
- The display is as good as you would expect it to be. I’m not equipped to give an evaluation of actual color accuracy, but I definitely found no problem so far.
- The speakers on this unit work well. They didn’t work well on the previous unit, which was probably an overall bad one.
- The keyboard has ups and downs. Key presses are sharp and neat just the way I like them, except maybe the Enter key. The touchpad is not as good as the keyboard itself and has a very noticeable tendency to collect dirt from your hands, so it will need constant cleaning. Apart from this minor detail, my major concern is that to use the bottom region to click it takes an excessive pressure, making it quite uncomfortable. Still, it’s perfectly viable. I couldn’t get it to connect via Bluetooth so far, so I’m waiting to see if it needs a full charge or it’s just defective. I wish they printed on the keys the PgUp/PgDown, as one has to remember where they are. Same for other combinations. I wish they added a dedicated power button to turn it on/off via Bluetooth.
Overall I’m very satisfied with this unit so far (keep in mind: it’s been just a few hours so far). Eve delivered for me. With some hiccups on the way, but it delivered.
