This is the most useless device yet. You cannot port foward with it, it drops out when on youtube and takes forever to load a simple page.

I am close to an optus tower also.

Do not buy this piece of crap!

Pros
Easy to set up
Cons
Wasn't able to use reliably for Skype
• • •

I bought this to use in North Sydney during a recent business trip from overseas. Even though high signal strength and HSPA was indicated, the protocol regularly dropped to HSDPA and WCMDA.

Although some peak speed were in the 1-2+ Mbps range, it was impossible to conduct skype conversations with video, and even audio only, the quality was poor.

Even moving to the balcony didn't improve the connection speed/reliabilty.

If the DODO 3G modem I bought last year is 'average' (it worked well), this modem is 'below average'. (I left this modem with a relative in Melbourne, since I was leaving Oz - perhaps I should have kept it!) Most odd given DODO uses the Optus network.

I don't think the higher price for the higher speed Optus modem was worth it since I was just visiting. Can't wait until it becomes unlocked!

STYLISTIC Q702

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

Anthony Grifoni

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.

Andrew Mitsi

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.

Simon Harriott

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.
