Panasonic VIERA TH-P42ST30A

Panasonic's ST30A plasma hits the sweet spot in the company's plasma TV line-up. It's got image quality that's not too far off last year's top VT20, and it's not particularly expensive either. We don't like Panasonic's plasma design updates, though -- they're still chunky and look less attractive than the competition -- and image brightness and colour vibrance drops a little when switching to the most accurate Cinema colour mode. You'll also have to buy 3D glasses.

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.

Steph Mundell


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.

Simon Harriott


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.
