Sound. Functions. Features.
No aux input. Latest iPod nano doesn't work.

Great sound for a large portable unit. Good features like timer and sleep function. Easy to read LCD display. Very easy to set up and use. Very good and easy to use remote control unit. Good radio, I'm not too fussed about the lack of am on the radio. The fm works well, and this is what I listen to a lot these days anyway. Shoulder strap isn't an issue for me. No hissing from the speakers like other brands I have owned. Quiet CD mechanism. Unfortunately I discovered that the RV-NB50 isn't comparable with the latest iPod nano touch. Fortunately I still have my old third gen model to use with the RV-NB50. I got it for a good price too. Overall, if your looking for a portable beast, take a good hard look at this one. I would have given a full five stars, except for the lack of comparability with the latest iPod nano.

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.

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.

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.
