Our Fujitsu reader reviews program has come to an end; winner announced

The winner of our first Good Gear Guide Evaluation Team program has been announced

Late last year, we introduced the Good Gear Guide Evaluation Team program, in which we open up the product review process to small and medium business users, whom we call Good Gear Testers. The goal of the Evaluation Team is to get new technology into the hands of the people who need it most, allowing them to review new equipment for roll-outs in their business, or as BYOD solutions.

This is the first of many reader-based product reviews programs we hope to bring you.

We’re happy to report that our inaugural program fetched over 100 participants who were keen to get their hands on some new technology by the first vendor to participate in this program: Fujitsu. Fujitsu supplied three different products to these users directly so that they could be trialled in everyday work environments, on the road, and at home. These products were the Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 hybrid tablet, the Stylistic Q572 tablet, and the Lifebook UH574 Ultrabook.

While the program is mainly for the benefit of the participants, to see if a particular piece of technology suits their business needs, we also asked users to submit a review of the equipment they tested. We wanted them to give a real-world perspective on how the devices performed for the various functions that were used. Of these reviews, we selected one winning review that we think gives a fair representation of the product’s abilities and features, as well as healthy criticism.

The winning review we have selected is from Kathy Cassidy, who provides a good rundown of the Q702 hybrid tablet in her write-up, from its style and top-heavy design, to its handwriting recognition and battery life. For her efforts, she will receive her very own Fujitsu Stylistic Q702. Congratulations, Kathy.

Fujistu's Stylistic Q702 received lots of positive feedback from our Good Gear Testers, though many complained about the price.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
