Kort testrapport VAIO A12 (Core i7-8500Y, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, FHD) Convertible

Sebastian Bade, 👁 Andreas Osthoff, T. Hinum, 04-05-2019

Veel te duur! VAIO, de voormalige PC-divisie van Sony, is terug op de markt, of probeert in elk geval zijn plek te bemachtigen. Een van de comeback apparaten is de VAIO A12, een 12.5-inch convertible die het nog wel eens lastig zou kunnen hebben met het rechtvaardigen van zijn forse prijs. Lees in ons testrapport hoe de A12 presteert in onze tests en of het alternatieve 12.5-inch convertibles zoals de Surface Pro lastig kan maken.

Responstijd Scherm

De responstijden van het scherm tonen hoe snel het scherm in staat is om van één kleur naar de andere te veranderen. Trage responstijden kunnen aanleiding geven tot 'nabeelden' rond bewegende objecten of het scherm wazig maken (blur). Vooral spelers van snelle 3D-games hebben baat bij een scherm met snelle responstijden.
       Responstijd Zwart naar Wit
30.4 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 15.6 ms stijging
↘ 14.8 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde trage responstijden in onze tests en is misschien te traag voor games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.8 (minimum) tot 240 (maximum) ms. » 77 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd slechter is dan het gemiddelde (25.2 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.
       Responstijd 50% Grijs naar 80% Grijs
52.8 ms ... stijging ↗ en daling ↘ gecombineerd↗ 24.4 ms stijging
↘ 28.4 ms daling
Het scherm vertoonde trage responstijden in onze tests en is misschien te traag voor games.
Ter vergelijking: alle testtoestellen variëren van 0.9 (minimum) tot 636 (maximum) ms. » 87 % van alle toestellen zijn beter.
Dit betekent dat de gemeten responstijd slechter is dan het gemiddelde (40.2 ms) van alle geteste toestellen.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

Om de schermhelderheid te verlagen schakelen sommige laptops het backlight erg snel aan en uit. Dit gebeurt aan een dergelijk hoge frequentie dat het niet zichtbaar is voor het menselijk oog. Als de frequentie te laag is kunnen personen met gevoelige ogen geïrriteerd geraken, hoofdpijn krijgen en zelfs flickering waarnemen.
Screen flickering / PWM waargenomen 990.1 Hz ≤ 99 % helderheid instelling

Het backlight van het scherm flikkert aan 990.1 Hz (hoogstwaarschijnlijk met PWM - Pulse-Width Modulation) aan een helderheid van 99 % en lager. Boven deze helderheid zou er geen flickering / PWM mogen optreden.

De frequentie van 990.1 Hz is redelijk hoog en de meeste mensen die gevoelig zijn aan flickering zouden dit dus niet mogen waarnemen of geïrriteerde ogen krijgen.

Ter vergelijking: 51 % van alle geteste toestellen maakten geen gebruik van PWM om de schermhelderheid te verlagen. Als het wel werd gebruikt, werd een gemiddelde van 9429 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz waargenomen.

The VAIO A12 convertible review. Test device courtesy of Cyberport.

Dit is de verkorte versie van het originele artikel. Het volledige, Engelse testrapport vind je hier.

De VAIO A12 is ietwat een raadsel. De convertible is overprijsd en heeft vele minpunten, al doet de VAIO het op veel vlakken erg goed.

De Y-serie processor is energiezuiniger dan U-serie processoren en is nog steeds krachtig genoeg voor alledaagse kantoorwerkzaamheden. In veeleisender programma's bereikt de dual-core CPU echter zijn limiet. De 16 GB RAM lijkt teveel van het goede, al zijn we er niet op tegen en datzelfde geld ook voor de 512 GB SSD. We hadden geen onverwachte problemen met de prestaties en de A12 kon ons zelfs verrassen met relatief goede scores in de systeemtests.

De VAIO A12 is simpelweg te duur. Het biedt niets meer dan de concurrentie niet ook of zelfs beter doet. Wel zijn er een rits minpunten. Je kunt beter nog even verder kijken.

De A12 ziet er ook uit alsof het een stevig convertible is met zijn dikke design en gebruik van premium materialen, maar het tegendeel is waar. De convertible buigt naar onze mening teveel door en het toetsenbord dock buigt in het midden door tijdens typen. We waarderen ook dat VAIO de A12 uitrust met een volwaardige SD-kaartlezer, maar de beslissing om een USB 2.0-versie te gebruiken op een notebook van deze prijs is verbluffend.

En we zouden niet zo kritisch zijn op de A12 als deze goedkoper was geweest. We kunnen vergevingsgezind zijn voor een apparaat met een dim beeldscherm, kleine batterij, ondermaatse luidsprekers en slecht geplaatste poorten als het een scherpe prijs had, maar bij een convertible van € 2799 is dat onacceptabel. De Surface Pro 6 heeft geen van de problemen van de A12, heeft een krachtiger CPU en is ook nog eens bijna € 800 goedkoper.

Kortom, de A12 voldoet niet aan onze verwachtingen en doet te weinig om het hoge prijskaartje te rechtvaardigen. Hoewel de VAIO A12 een respectabele 82% scoort, raden we aan om een van de concurrenten aan te schaffen: je bent dan goedkoper uit en zult er ook nog een beter apparaat voor krijgen.
