K-Mart Online Photo Printing
- Nice interface
- Does not deliver, Pricier than the average
A poor choice, combining above average costs with a lack of options and no delivery.

Kmart's photo printing service failed to impress us. It offers a fairly standard array of options with a slightly below average pricing system, taking advantage of Kodak's photo printing network.
The biggest problem by far however is that Kmart has taken the same stance as BigW and do not offer delivery as an option. All photographs must be picked up from their stores. Online printing should eliminate the need to go out at all, so we can't understand why Kmart would exclude this feature.
Kmart's pricing structure is adequate but not particularly impressive, mirroring that provided by Kodak. Standard sized prints cost $0.49 each if you order less than thirty, but this drops to $0.39 for larger orders. 5x7 inch shots will set you back $3.00, but the 8x10 prints are slightly more reasonable at $5.00 each. It is also worth noting that despite having no postage option, and thus no postage costs, there is a $1.99 handling fee which seems entirely unnecessary.
The 8x10 prints are as big as this service goes, which is disappointing, considering some offer prints upwards of 25 inches, and a wide variety of media options (shirts, mugs, puzzles etc). You can access this service through their downloadable software, which we found extremely streamlined. There is no signup, and it was quick and intuitive. Unfortunately this is not enough to save this service from the rest of its problems.
It is a shame, because Kodak's printing service produces some fine images. We felt they were comparable with Fujifilm's shots, which we absolutely loved. Colours were rich and deep, although not quite as bright as Fujifilm's they still looked great.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
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.
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.
