umm, everything else

This is the biggest piece of crap ever engineered or built. DVDs are routinely not synced with audio, as is streaming video when you can get streaming to work. 70% of the time streaming fails to connect, though every other device I have has no issues at the time, and requires a reset. The ONLY thing I have found to reliably reset this to working order is to physically unplug it and plug it back in. I am seriously considering sending this back to Samsung in smashed bits.

Anything BUT the WiFi & Web Browser
Cons
Web Browser is an Archaic Neanderthal

If you want a wifi, buy something else. Everytime I want to listen to Pandora I have to go through all the same steps of using a code the player gives me, log into samsung/pandora and enter the code, then startup the player's browser, log into pandora.com, enter my user & pw for my already existing account with Pandora. Despite clicking "remember me" I have to do this EVERYTIME! It can take 10-15 minutes! Samsung is just as slow to answer an email regarding this matter. By the way, the User Guide is written as if you are already familiar with the setup process. Otherwise, a very nice and inexpensive 3D bluray dvd player. Samsung needs major browser improvements. A key reason I bought this was so I did not have to tie my computer up if I wanted to listen to Pandora. This model was a waste for me.

If you're getting this for apps maybe it's not the #1, but I personally didn't which makes it awesome.

Bye far the best bang for your buck. I picked this up on sale for $118.00. Great quality 3D player.

The BD-E5900

Setting up accounts for face book with pass words is very frustrating as at every turn it asks for e-mail address again which is very tedious ! the only good thing the box does is play DVDs . For the money very dissapointing

Pros
WiFi
Cons
No BBC News APP
• • •

I just bought a BD-E5900 with Smart Hub to replace my older Samsung Bluray. A key APP I used in my older player was BBC News. After communicating with Samsung I find that the newer system does not support the BBC News APP...this is a big step backward for Samsung. Overall the product works well but there are very few good news APPs.

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.
