As I read most reviews on the Averatec 6200 series I see most, if not all, writers complain about poor sound quality/volume. What they are missing is a small blue icon with yellow sound waves emitting from the center, found in the lower left corner. When you place your mouse on it reads Sound Effects. When I first got my Averatec, I too was disappointed with the sound until I found that fantastic tool. With it, I can force the sound to the point of damaging the speakers. With a few fine adjustments I was delighted with the sound quality/volume. It may be the best sound I ever heard from a notebook. In short, after owning many notebooks, several over $2000, I believe the Averatec 6200 series is the best deal on the market. I have had no sticky keys, and no firmware problems and I am as happy as a pig in slop. I always bought the 3 year extended warranties for each notebook because of the high cost of replacement. Now I will just stick with the purchase price, which is very low, and throw the notebook away when it fails and can not be fixed. I do not see that happening soon, but the units are getting low priced enough to almost class them as disposable.
