I agree with the review above - these speakers are quite bass heavy and at first i really didn't like the sound from my iPod with these speakers. However, when I hooked them up to a TV, they sounded much better. This prompted me to try my laptop and use the equaliser settings - much better again. Back to the iPod, I fiddled with the preset equaliser settings and found that the "JAZZ" setting did the trick! I then bought some stands 60cm high and positioned them a good 6 inches from the wall... perfect !! These speakers are seriously worth investing a little time to get things right. If they had tone controls, yes i could have just pulled the bass down a bit. However, on stands, with the right equaliser settings, they are great. The whole package is very simple and nicely thought out, with power to the dock coming direct from the speaker, along the same wire as the 3.5mm audio line wire meaning just one plug into the mains. If you can get hold of a good second hand (used) pair, I'd go for them... I'm glad I did !! Honestly... you CAN get the bass down with the right stands, positioning and careful use of the EQ settings on your iPod :-)

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.
