1)Black levels - outstanding 10/10. I think of the "artist" analogy when talking TV black levels...If a budding artist has a black canvas from which they can paint a red, green then blue stripe, the colours leap off the imagine the colours on a mild/ dark grey canvas! the same R G B stripes look less vibrant against the greyish back drop. The PS64D8000 has the darkest screen/ canvas hands down. If contemplating this concept, do as I did and walk into any retailer and ask for your two prospective TVs to be turned off...have a look at the hardware before the software...have a look at the black levels on the PS64D8000 vs any PANA/LG and you will instantly see the meaning of a Black canvas.
2) Motion. 9/10 wont see motion judder..your mates wont see it and your wife will complain of the image looking too real.too life like..(because she has to pick on something). However, I cant say for sure this is the case for gaming as we dont let the kids near this tv for fear of image retention.
As a side note...Sport on Fox HD is un-freaken' beleivable on this TV..just like being there!!!
3) 3D performance. We chose the Samsung without testing the 3D features at the store as we will only really be watching 2D for 95% of the time. However, after having owned the previous PS63C7000, the 3D is a fantastic step up due to the bluetooth glasses not dropping out as frequently and would testify that the 2d to 3d conversion is prob as good as the 3d from a 3d source in last years model.

hope this helps!

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

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.
