Pros
The service - second to none. so so fast
Cons
The management interface. Its very details, complicated and easy to stuff up if your not a compter tech.

Brilliant and so fast. I purchased a NETGEAR A6200 Adadpter to allow the 802.11ac channel and they work together perfectly. The only issue I had was the first one I bought was simply faulty - and it took a month and a lot of headaches to finally be told that.

But it's awesome especially for more than one device

Pros
USB 3, connectivity
Cons
Not good for sharing mac drives, everything has to be in windows file formats to share
• • •

Was hoping this was going to be my ultimate wireless sharing device. But it won't recognise mac file systems and seems very slow in propagating the network when it can share files.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

STYLISTIC Q572

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.
