    Sorry to hear you guys are having issues. So far, the only issues I have with my Duo 11 are Win8 related and hopefully will resolve with time/upgrades.

    With the lack of retail outlets, it is getting much harder to get in-store help. I suspect this is one reason people are willing to pony up extra $ for Apple stuff. Now that there is a Microsoft Store in downtown PDX (they carry the Vaio Duo 13 too), I'll likely buy from them rather than Best Buy.

    Hi guys, it's a pretty old thread but I've just bought a vaio duo 11 so.. I've a little issues
    While I 'm playing some game I often see a refresh (like when you watch a video of an old crt screen) and also there is a brightness change (this issue aren't simultaneously)
    I've tried to turn off the automatic brightness but the issue still remain...

    Hey all,

    New VD11 owner. Had it just a couple months, bought second hand off a lad who upgraded to a surface 2.

    She's no perfect beast, but for half the MSRP it was an ok deal. Is it normal for them to lose power at 10% batt. It seems like a fault to me (oh oh). It doesnt get a chance to sleep/hibernate a lot of the time, just immediately halts as if manually forced down.

    Also thinking about expanding storage via a 64GB SDHC, anyone done this? Hows performance?

    Your battery issue is not normal. You may want to run some battery capacity tests. Windows has some command line ones built in... google Windows battery report and you should find something.

    It warned me at 10 and 8% last cycle so I think its getting better batt stats with usage.

    Bluetooth is being a right pain though. Everything else is working how I like it except bluetooth. When devices disconnect I often have to de-pair and re-pair.

    Your Bluetooth issue also is not common. I can't remember any random disconnects in the entire year that I've had the Duo. I would try uninstalling and then reinstalling the Bluetooth drivers directly from Sony's website to see if that fixes your issues.

    Mouse is reconnecting now. Just the HT820 bluetooth headset thats being a pain. Thats ancient though so its just as likely to be at fault.

    Next question is, to remove the recovery partition or no? Its probably been done to death already but this is a long thread. Installed VisStudio overnight so I'm getting a little tight on space now. Got a recovery image made, but I'm wondering if generic win8 install would SLIC activate if it were needed?

    Thanks

    Suspect SVD11s are too old and I wont get a response, but just in case.

    Anyone hacked together some way of locking the SVD down without kensington support? I'd rather not have to bring it with me every time I go for a subway.

    Thanks,
    Scrat

    Hey, just get a cable lock and wrap it around the hinge of the opened Duo. That should keep the Duo safe enough to keep in sight from a room's length. That's what I've done.
