I bought this player together with a new 3D TV set. First, I chose it because it reads all the new video formats, 3D included. I tested it and it does a great job. Its major advantage is the possibility to split sound from image if you have a receiver that does not support 3D signal. You will save a lot of money, keeping the actual amplifier. I have a Denon 1910 receiver which cannot handle 3D signal, so I am very glad with this feature. The quality of the image is outstanding, as it should be. Another big step forward is the huge improvement of the SD image. Old DVDs are looking much better on this player.
Honestly, I don't care about any other features it has. There are so many devices connected to the Internet in every corner of the house, than I see no purpose to connect another one. That's me, but I think that there are peoples interested to have all these features. The remote controller is very classic, and handy. You'll get used whit it in seconds.
The minus is the fact that surprisingly, this player is somehow noisy. There are some steps in loading a disc when it vibrates and makes noise. Not to much, but loud enough to be heard.
This could be the way to produce a player with so many features at a price around 200 euros.
I hope this one will last at least as long as my old Panasonic BDP 30, which we are still using in another room.

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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.
