We purchased an LG Blu-ray Disc Player with built in HDD & Twin HD Tuner (HR698D/HR699D) P/NO : MFL65225522 for $400 AU

I am writing out of frustration - this is the worst piece of electronics I have ever experienced. Not only do I want to return this overpriced device, I want you to know how poorly devised and un-user friendly it is. I have compiled a list of reasons why I dislike this product so much:

1. Cannot delete a recording while a recording is taking place
2. Cannot start watching a recording OR edit a recording that is taking place (can easily be done on devices on loan from the cable company in the United States).
3. Device automatically shuts off after recording is finished, cannot edit in settings
4. 'FF/RW' buttons are right next to 'skip to end' buttons on remote
5. Cannot track where you are in recording while in FF or RW
6. Doesn't load shows in the TV guide until you click on the channel, often loses end of show

Not worth your time or your money.

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

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

Andrew Mitsi


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
