Pros
Good picture, sleek design, helpdesk
Cons
Android interface, need accessories (not included), PVR
• • •

Purchased this in Janurary 2014, I like the picture quality but that's about it.

- The interface locks up ramdomally even on simple tasks like changing channels on the guide.
- The technical specs are incorrect. For example HDMI Is advertised with 2xHDMI and 1xHDMI with ARC, what you actually get is 4xHDMI standard.
- To use any of the browsing functions you need a wireless keyboard and trackpad/mouse as the remote is very basic. While a standard USB keyboard and mouse will work, being 55" and only 1.5 metres from the screen is a bit much.
- PVR is a bit clunky to get going and once you get it sorted you discover that the TV is only single tuner so you cannot watch one channel and record another thus needing another box sitting on/in your entertainment cabinet.
- Helpdesk support is good if you don't mind being on hold for 20-30minutes or a couple of days via email.
- had to upgrade the OS straight out of the box.

If all you want is a TV with nothing else is ok but to make this the centre piece of your home theatre, save your money and buy something that is going to tick all the boxes.

Pros
Wifi, sleek design, decent picture quality
Cons
Buggy, freezes often, Crappy remote
• • •

I recently got one of this. It is a good value for buck in the market but only when it works trouble free!! It is quite buggy, freezes (android interface) and the remote becomes unresponsive. The only way then is to power off & On at the back of the unit to restart. The software issues seem to have not been tested enough before delivery. Overall the TV picture quality is decent but not comparable to Samsung or Sony etc.but again have to be happy for the price.

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.
