    Did you test the Wireless? I was just wondering how it was for connection since I am typically going to be using the wireless to connect to my router for internet.

  • I’ve never had any problems with connecting to my b/g router. The antenna isn’t incredibly strong, as it doesn’t always detect all of the nearby networks, but it always sees mine immediately. And that’s the most important one, anyway!

  • Thanks! That was the one thing none of the reviews had really touched on. I have ordered my 380CN and hope to get it this week.

  • Hi, just to let you guys know DO NOT ever upgrade your ux180 to vista, because the only one verson that is capable is the Home basic, after the clean installation you will lose all the data, and it was a pain to get all the software back, and the sony customer service was NO help AT ALL! I had to downgraded back to XP! overall I am very unhappy with sony’s customer service.
