Picture quality, energy efficiency
very little
• • •

Brilliant performer. Picture quality is unsurpassed by anything else in the market. Blu-ray drive is a little sluggish to get going, but is silent and delivers excellent pictures once it's up and running, and has the bonus extra that all DVDs are processed as region free.

Sound is typically poor - I'm yet to hear any LCD TV with sound to match the picture quality, but the Sharp has digital audio, analogue audio line outputs and headphone output - this last unlike most of it's contemporaries - so it's very easy to connect it to the decent surround sound system that most users will already have available




Picture Quality
NOISY... and dead pixels
• • •

The Blu-ray drive is very noisy from the time it starts working until you turn off the tv even after ejecting the disk. Not a good choice if you want to watch a movie with quiet scenes.

It's region locked, even for DVDs.

It arrived with two dead pixels, Sharp claims that you need "a lot" of dead pixels before they'll consider it a warranty fix.

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.

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.
