Panasonic DMR-EX79 DVD recorder

The Panasonic DMR-EX79 DVD recorder has a reasonable price, but the lack of a high-definition digital TV tuner lets it down.

Pros
not much
Cons
No HD functionality recording using the tv guide can cut the movie short.

I own a Panasonic DMR-EX79 DVD recorder and its inabilitly to view or record hd signals makes it useless to me. I wish I had not bought it.

Another issue I have with it is that if I set it up to record using its tv guide it often cuts the movie short by several minutes - really annoying when you get to the climax and it stops the show.

Do not buy it.

Lack of HD tuner

In 2011 terms the DMR-EX79 is an expensive unit. It is unbelievable that Panasonic would market a product which is incapable of tuning into HD channels. This is year 2000 stuff. I am sorry I bought one 18 months ago. Didn't know about the HD deficiency. Salesman never mentioned it.

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.

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.
