My wife was pressurised into buying this by a salesman I suspect and we are stuck with a relatively expensive PerVeR [Personal Video electronic Recorder) with BluRP (Blu-Ray Player). The manual is confusing and lacks useful easy-to-read detail in English at least but contaiins lots of descriptions and other data that might be mistaken for proper specifications. The remote cannot be made to link to the PVR using the instruction manual, there is no additional explanation on the web site, and there is no mute. I suggest early adopters stay well clear of this unit.

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.
