New and cheaper Jaz from Iomega

Iomega Corporation has released its Jaz 2GB drives and cartridges in Australia, and dropped the price of the 1GB models to greet them.

The RRP for the external 1GB Jaz has dropped from $699 to $599, and from $599 to $529 for the internal model.

The 2GB Jaz drives have a maximum sustained transfer rate of 8.7MB per second (average is 7.4MB per second), which is fast enough to deliver full-secreen, full-motion video, according to Iomega. Average access time is 15.5ms and the average seek times are 10ms read/12ms write. The 2GB Jaz drive is compatible with the 1GB disks. Software included with the 2GB Jaz is Iomega's Jaz Tools.

The Iomega 2GB Jaz has a RRP of $1199 for the external model and $999 for the internal model.

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.
