Iomega settles lawsuit with rebate offer

While the vendor denied any problems with its products, it agreed to settle the lawsuit filed in a Delaware district court by paying its opponents' court fees of $US4.7 million and donating Zip drives and disks worth $US1 million to schools. The settlement applies to users in the US who purchased a Zip Drive between 1 January, 1995 and 19 March, 2001, according to court documents.

The law suit alleged that the drives contained a defect that caused a "clicking" problem, and as a result of this defect, users experienced damage to their hardware or to the information stored on the disks.

The rebates range form $US5 to $US40 on a variety of Iomega products. More information about the rebates can be found at

Ioemga proposed that the rebates be valid for six months from their date of issue and be redeemable at the company's online store or qualified retailers.

The settlement will not be completed until the court reviews the proposal in June, the court documents show.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
