Pros
Awesome print quality
Cons
ADF durability
• • •

We're on our second one of these printers. The ADF in the first one gave up the ghost after a couple of thousand scans, although the flatbed scanner still worked. The print quality in the first one was outstanding however, and after over 14K pages was still printing like new. Print speed is impressive, easily hitting 20ppm. The original cartridge is a small capacity one, but as long as you use the 78A cartridge the print quantity is impressive. The scanning software only works correctly through USB, and not through ethernet. We had our first one installed on WinXP - no issues. New one is installed on Win7 X64, and again no issues. For $267 this printer is a bargain.

Pros
Good Speed Printing, Fax and Copying
Cons
Big problems with printing text
• • •

HP just gave me 2 printers like this to substitute the one i brought.
The text printed is always more up in the left margin than in the right one, it's not in the horizontal!!!

I have checked everything with HP, drivers, motor tests, etc..., and nothing, the printer simply doesn't print horizontal text correctly!

Pros
nothing
Cons
won't install on windowsXP SP3
• • •

This is the first time I've had an utter failure from HP. This printer is supposed to work with XP SP2 and higher, but it's installer will not proceed on SP3. HP's solution is to 'upgrade' to windows7, or downgrade to SP2, neither of which is going to happen.
The features of this device are a perfect match for our needs, but the software and support failure makes me question HP's viability. They seem to be slipping down into Dell territory.

Pros
size
Cons
terrible cartridge life, bad scanning software
• • •

The most expensive cartridge/drum usage we have ever experienced in 20 years of laser printer use. Constantly running out. Will replace, but definitely not with HP.
The scanner software has many incompatablities with with Adobe Professional.

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.
