It's the only multifunction machine I can find whose scanner works on a network and it appears to be durable.
It gets a little balky at times and confused about what it's doing, but it self-corrects

I like this machine and I highly recommend it EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT PERFECT. That's because I have had 6 MFPs over the years by various makers and NONE of those were perfect either--this one is the least imperfect. Just understand that it's a home office quality machine. It costs less than $1,000 and you can't have the same expectations of a heavy duty machine that cost 3 to 5 times as much. I took delivery on this MFP in April of 2012. It's now November. I do from 1,000 to 1,500 pages per month. I get the fewest number of paper jams and they are the easiest to clear from any of the machines I have used (which include Xerox, Canon, Brother). It also has the highest capacity Ink cartridge and unlike other machines it actually gives you warnings when the supply of toner is getting low.

Very important is that while all of its competitors work fine as network printers, none work as network scanners, except this one (at least in my experience and from all of my research).

On the bad side there are a lot of times when I get error messages that the paper in the tray is not the right side for what I wish to print--when I know perfectly well that that is not the case! But then after about 10 seconds the machine self-corrects and prints what I am asking it to print. On a few occasions when I was trying to print an 8.5 x 14 document on an 8.5 x 11, it simply would not print until I either changed paper and paper settings or asked the printe to reduce the image size.

In conclusion: I bought it, I'm happy; I'd do it again

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

Anthony Grifoni


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.

Andrew Mitsi


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.
