Download Demon 3.0

Download Demon launches automatically when you start a download, displaying the name of the file you're downloading, the site from which it's coming, and the folder in which it's being saved. The program tells you how much of the file's been downloaded and the estimated time remaining until completion. It can be used at FTP and HTTP addresses, and it recognises 85 file formats.

The scheduling feature allows you to download files while you're away from your PC. The Download Demon can track multiple downloads simultaneously and, based on your preferences, can list all of them, the unfinished ones only, or only those still downloading. Files land in a default download folder, unless you specify another location. You're then given the option to install them immediately or to view them.

Perhaps the most useful feature is Download Demon's ability to pause and resume downloads - so you can make or receive a phone call, without having to start over. Just click the Resume button to pick up where you left off. Although Pause and Resume work only with servers that support the resume feature, we encountered no obstacles - most servers support it.

You can change the look of the Demon with skins, but the only way to eliminate the marching banner ads that run across the main interface is to hand over $US30.

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.
