Crooks i stood on the phone for an hour to get credit on a charge of a card that i had cancelled 6 months ago and out of the blue i get a charge after 6 months of cancelation for 40 bucks. After being transfered 5 times i get transfered to the phone department that could not help with the charge nor transfer me back to the previous rep. Horrible coutomer service I would not recommend this to my worst enemy. Don't buy it dont get into it it is the worst i have ever had to deal with.

Bought the USB Modem online at AU$39.00 on offer. It started out badly with the billing, with Virgin charging my credit card with $79.00. With activation I am kept on hold 3 times for at leeast 30-45 minutes. I finally get through to their call centre which is obviously located in India. The call centre operator was completely unintelligible to the point where I kept repeateing "I cannot understand anything you are saying, could you please repeat" - truly mind boggling. Obviously after this experience, you'd expect the internet access to be total cr*p, and it is. Its a complete waste of money. Pages just sit there waiting to connect for ages and ages, while you watch the connection indicator spin away endlessly. UTTER GARBAGE! And I still havent got my overcharged $40 back.

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.
