Rated 4 out of 5 by silky Slender but bulky with the silly three prong plugs
Not sure why Sony used a 3 wire cable as it adds so much bulk to the setup. A way to easily wrap up wires would be nice. It comes with a silly clip that isn't very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jollyhipolito Great purchase!
Bought this two years ago, along with my Sony Vaio Z laptop. It has two usb ports that I use to charge various things. I leave this plugged into the wall, sitting on my desk. Very convenient! I don't have to worry about running out of space trying to plug things in. It has two faint lights by the two usb slots. The piece that connects to the laptop also is lit up when its connected to a power source; nice touch.
My only gripe is that I wish those two lights were a bit brighter and that it had a slightly longer cable (it's long enough, but in my living situation, it would have been better if its slightly longer). Also, there is a flap that you open up to reveal the usb ports. It may be better to have it slide open, instead of pulling it open like a door. Plugging in/unplugging things creates less space for my hand because of that door/flap

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suengel Great travel charger for multiple devices
When I first bought this adapter, I thought that I really didn't need it since my Vaio laptop came with an adapter for the computer and one for the docking station. However, when I looked closer, I noticed that this adapter, unlike the one that came with the computer, has 2 USB plugs that can charge other devices, such as my mobile phone, ipod or ipad, and mifi wireless card, regardless if my computer is plugged into the adaptor or not. I just put these cords into the nice black velcro adaptor case, and it's all I need. Also great when traveling and you only have one receptable in an older hotel room to charge all your devices, you only need to plug in the adaptor and you're all set!

Rated 3 out of 5 by BizTraveler Small and Light - NOT
Small and light were the two words furthest from my mind when I received this adapter. If you have a Sony laptop already then you presumably know how big and heavy this is. I received this as a spare adapter in advance of the laptop I ordered and was shocked at the weight. Sony includes a very high quality carrying case--but seriously, the adapter in the case takes up at least 3 times the volume of the largest laptop adapter I've ever seen. I will probably try to find a third party adapter with the same specs that is more travel friendly. If I had seen this adapter in the store when I went to check out the size of laptops, then I would have done more research and possibly puchased another brand laptop.
