E-Sounds MP3 Player

It's a very simple player with well laid-out, quite large buttons for us thick-fingered folk. The sound quality is excellent, and the supplied headphones easily reproduced the sound crisply at the maximum volume level (and they also provided a generous length of cord). The regular playing modes are included: repeat one, repeat all and random, and the built-in equaliser presets include pop, rock and classic (which provides the richest listening experience).

The E-Sounds' LCD crisply and brightly displaying the song number, elapsed time, playing mode, EQ setting and battery level. This player comes with only 32MB of standard on-board memory, but can be pushed up to 64MB with a SmartMedia memory card.

A parallel interface is used to transport songs to the player. The E-Sounds' software interface is exactly the same as that used by the JazPiper (reviewed in December 1999) and is well designed and easy to use. An attempt to upload a file from the player to your PC is frowned upon - a message is displayed stating that what you are doing is "an infringement against copyright laws".

The build quality of the E-Sounds player is also almost identical to that of the JazPiper, using sturdy unbendable plastic; however, it does lack a belt clip.

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.
