reliability, after sales support
• • •

If you purchase your equioment on price alone then this unit may be for you as on paper it looks to be an awesome player. If, however, you expect quality and reliability then research this product carefully. The unit is plagued with crashes and faults and although a dedicatated community is trying to iron out bugs in the firmware, Astone are doing nothing to attempt to fix this unit.

Pros
Love the wi-fi connection to PC
Cons
Can't watch one channel and record another!
• • •

While this was easy to configure and I was able to wirelessly connect to my PC to watch my movies etc I was disappointed to see that when recording you couldn't watch another station. This is a major drawback for us given I don't like football. We got around it by connecting up a second PVR to the TV and using that to do records and only used this one for time-shift or recording when we weren't wanting to watch another channel.

interface
• • •

Out of the box I initially thought it was a piece of crap, but after downloading the latest firmware, it was a fantastic unit at good price, but a horrible interface. The interface reminds myself of what the DOS looked like about 20 years ago ! The unit plays a wide range of video and audio formats. I have a 1 TB hard drive inside the unit, however the hard drive is empty, as I only use the unit to receive streaming movies from another media player, the iomega iconnect. The unit needs a wifi dongle to be able to connect wirelessly. I've seen the unit and the wifi dongle and a HDMI cable and a high gain antenna for as little as $130 on ebay including postage.

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.
