WD 2TB and 4TB external strorage unit drives.
Some smart tv's have limits in storage unit size, like a desk top computer has limits to ram recognition.

I bought Both the WD my book 2TB and the WD TOURO 4TB Book desk pro. Both are external storage drives. I load movies music and pictures on them. The 2TB is full and the movies play easily play by plugging the WD 2TB book into my Samsung 55" smart tv. The tv has its own media player onboard and seems to play any video format. I found the tv however like a desk top computer has a limit to the size of drive it will recognize. However I have found the small stand alone media players have no such size limit to TB storage units, and my WD small media player can play movies from any size TB external storage drive. So I just plug the media player into the tv, and the 4 TB storage unit into the media player. I love it !

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.
