After having this printer for about 14 months, I could not be happier with it, it printed, faxed, copied and everything else, until I went away from home, for about 6 weeks, came back wanted to print some documents, and it would not print, saying that it was low on ink, so I brought 4 new inks, and the stupid thing still would not print. I was told that the ink would stain on the heads or something if left alone for too long. It was only 6 weeks, and now the stupid thing won't work! Never a brother again!!

After moving house I did not use the printer a MFC-250C for six months. (The printer was new at this time) When originally set up I only used it to print six documents. When I attempted to use it would not print black. I bought all new cartridges at a cost of $70. After multiple attempts the wretched machine still won’t print black. So I have spent $90 originally on the machine, a further $70 on cartridges. That makes $160 total or a cost of $26.66 per document printed. Would I ever consider any Brother machine ever? DEFINITLY NOT!

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

Anthony Grifoni


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

Steph Mundell


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


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


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.
