Pros
Lots of inputs, more then you will ever need to use.
Cons
Bad viewing angles, Blacks and whites never look good. Stand isn't very adjustable

After spending hours configuring the settings on this monitor i haven't found a setting that makes both the dark and light colors look good. The Gamma setting lets you have either washed out colors and greys that look almost 100% like white (gamma 2.0 and lower) Or Dark colors that all look black gamma 2.2 and higher. It doesn't matter how much you change the contrast and brightness its impossible to get both of the colors looking good.

The biggest problem however is the viewing angles, i had to tilt it down as much as it goes and then put stuff under the stand to angle it more downward so i could watch it while laying down. If you don't angle it down all of the color is lost everything looks black and all you can see is whites and some bright blues or reds.

I have had this for a month and already hate it enough that i downgraded back to my old 1680x1050 monitor and gave this to a friend.

I would only buy this if you can find it for really cheap and need all the inputs.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
