These things break with normal use after a few days. Same problem everyone has - snaps the plastic near the earpiece. They need to fix this design flaw.

After looking on the net for a decent pair of gaming headphones, I saw a few reviews that rated these headphones of a good quality and from a trusted company like Creative, it seemed like a good purchase.

The sound quality for games was at the time the best I've heard and the microphone was good too but they aren't that great for listening to music. And with the price tag in the $200+ mark, that alone isn't really worth it.

My biggest complaint about these are that like other reviewer stated, they tend to snap near the cup. I went through two of those with exactly the same break and just by putting them on my head. I've head cheap heaphones from Dick Smith that have lasted longer than these.

I bought a pair of these headphones, and at first I thought they were great - crisp sound, no interference or static when using Ventrilo. But within a week one of the ear cups had snapped off the head band.

We took it back to the retailer, who swapped them for another pair, at the same time we bought second pair for my partner because we figured that the snapping was an unprecedented defect, and also we are avid gamers and the sound was really good.

After a few weeks the sound stopped working on his headset, and the reason for this baffled us. So he's sent it back for a warranty claim, still waiting to hear back from them after several weeks.

And now today - my pair has stopped working in exactly the same way: for no apparent reason.

That is 3 pairs of these headsets that have broken/stopped working. And believe me at the price they are, and after the first pair snapped during the simple act of putting it on my head - we were treating the 2nd two pairs like they were made of glass.

I do not recommend this product at all. And I am very disappointed in Creative for bringing out an inferior product and charging a small fortune for it.

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.
