Pros
If you can get it working, don't touch it!
Cons
Awful software
• • •

Great idea, very poorly executed. I spend so much time trying to get the settings right in the software I have no time left to take photos. When it works, it works okay. But the (Mac) software is clunky, with confusing terminology, too many settings to try to make sense of, and I've only had the card working as advertised for a short time. Any changes to settings (to add a cloud service, iPad or smartphone, or change network config) is painful. My Eye-Fi card spends most of its life in the draw.

Pros
Relatively easy to configure on a PC and a laptop.
Cons
Slow transfer from a 20meg camera in Raw format, not bad from high res Jpeg.

The Eye-Fi Pro X2 8GB arrived today and I tried it immediately in my new Sony RX-100. The geotagging is not true GPS, but WPS which requires the camera to be within a wi-fi zone, not practical for isolated landscapes. I will still carry my Sony GPS module.

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.
