Samsung’s buy a TV, get one free deal

If you purchase a selected Samsung LCD, LED or plasma television in the lead-up to Christmas you are eligible a free 22in or 26in LCD television. This offer is running until 5pm, 24 December, 2009, and it gives Samsung customers a free second TV that’s the perfect size for a bedroom or study. If you buy one of the Series 5, Series 6 or Series 8 plasma televisions — or a Series 6 and Series 7 LCD TV — you’re eligible for a free 22in Samsung Series 4 LCD television worth $699.

If you purchase one of the more expensive Samsung LED television — such as the Series 6, Series 7 or Series 8 LED TVs you can enter the barcode on Samsung’s Web site to redeem your free 26in Series 4 LCD television worth $899.

If, for example, you purchased the Samsung UA46B8000 (Series 8) LED television and the 26in Series 4 LCD television in normal circumstances it would set you back $5598. But you can pick the Samsung UA46B8000 (Series 8) LED TV up for $4496 in store at JB Hi-Fi and get a free 26in Series 4 LCD TV, saving yourself $1102.

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.
