Online Video Library Very Small

Look as a DVD / Blue Player, it’s ok. But has many limitations which is strange. It has a network plug, and can get updates and play very limited movies off the net. But its main problem is does not have a DLNA client. This is very disappointing, especially considering Sony tell everyone how proactive there are with DLNA.
Watch out for updates the only favor Sony. Last thing, it has trouble playing a lot of media formats, it just won’t see them or says they are corrupt.

On my next Sony buy I will be a lot more careful to ensure it has basic DLNA and can play more Media formats.




Easy to use
Lacks WLAN that competitors offer

This unit DOES NOT come with the HDMI cable as stated in the editor review. Also the optical digital output is a old tech with HDMI now the industry standard and set to completely replace RCA and optical digital within a couple of years (at best)

A good all round unit, fast to get up and running and good output quality.

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.

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.
