Easy to use
Cons
stops recording after a few minutes

Hi All, In general a good easy to use and attractive unit. It stops recording after approx 8-9 minutes on the 10 stations (1, 10, 11) so you need to manually record. I have contacted Sony about this and they are aware of the glitch which has been put down to the broadcasting stream and not the unit itself. If you lodge this issue with them via their website, they say they will contact you with further info once the problem has been sorted. I hope this helps!

Pros
Very easy to use
Cons
only recording a few minutes
• • •

Have been in touch with Sony about the fact that 90% of the time only about 12 minutes in recorded. Uploaded Firmware but it is now worse. It is only a few weeks old but I am told it is out of "DOA warranty" and i now have to have it sent away for repair... NOT HAPPY!!!!

Doesnr record the whole program if the station is running over time

I find that I'm missing the end of a show if the station prigrammingruna over time. It sometimes only records the first 7 or 8 minutes of a program and I have no idea why- very frustrating!!

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.
