Won't tune to popular stations
• • •

Idea is brilliant but it turned out to be a big waste of money. Originally it scanned all digital stations available in Sydney metro area, but now it only picks up a few. There is no apparent reason to lose the stations. I certainly will never buy bush Walker. Battery power doesn't last either and I have gone through a lot of batteries. My advice walk past this radio and buy a different brand.

Pros
Digital radio
Cons
Trying to turn up the sound
• • •

When first turning on this radio the sound is faint and it's necessary to turn up the sound. Unfortunately, more often than not, the up-volume switch doesn't work. It's a real hit-and-miss situation. Sometimes the up-volume button works and other times it doesn't.

Very annoying. It's put me off the BUSH brand. I'm really getting tired of paying for goods that don't work after a short period of time. While this would still be under guarantee they make it hard to actually action the warrantee by requiring it to be sent away to be repaired. All too hard.

Flimsy, temperamental, uses too much battery power
• • •

Even though this radio is light weight, I too think it is flimsy. The controls are incredibly temperamental and finding my favorite radio station is sometimes very frustrating. The radio usually works well, but if I lean over or stand in the 'wrong' spot it doesn't work. The radio uses too much battery power. I find myself changing the batteries every few days. My old portable radio uses one battery and lasts for weeks. I'm ready to give up on this radio and go back to my old one.

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.
