Overall this monitor is very good, i mainly use it for gaming purposes, but of course everything else on my pc.

I have 2xgtx680 video cards, and that is what i would recommend is needed, at least gtx670 sli, to run at 2560x1440
with graphics set to high/ultra, and maintain a smooth 60fps.

The refresh rate is amazing, i guess its the PLS technology that really makes it look almost like there is no ghosting or blur on moving objects, there is some but it is probably the best refresh rate i have ever seen on an LED monitor.

Because of the high resolution, it can be hard to read text and also click on certain buttons while using
Windows, surfing the net and such. So i run Windows at 1920x1200, and i game at 2560x1440.
Running on 1920x1200 makes the image a little blurry, but after a few days i have got used to it.

Out of the box the settings are perfect, i havnt changed 1 setting on the monitor and the colour, and refresh rate settings are all perfect.

I dont see any backlight bleeding or any dead pixels, it truly is an amazing screen.

I also love how it rises up high, and can be spun around to portrait mode. And no matter what angel you
look at it from there is no weird colouring or nothing, PLS at its best.

It is also good that it has a 4 port usb2.0 hub, and has all the video inputs you would want.

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.
