World Cup special: Best DVD recorders and PVRs

Capture the pain and the passion of this year's World Cup with a high-definition PVR

Foxtel iQ2 ($200 + monthly subscription fee)

The 2010 World Cup isn’t airing on Pay TV, but there’s no reason why you can’t use Foxtel's iQ2 to record it. The device is much more stylish than its iQ predecessor with a glossy piano black finish. The buttons on the front are well laid out and the blue iQ indicator looks suitably futuristic. It’s also fairly compact considering it packs in a 320GB hard drive and no less than four digital tuners. You can watch one television channel and record two others simultaneously.

Naturally, the Foxtel iQ2 grants users the ability to record all the Foxtel channels they subscribe to. You can also record, pause and rewind live TV. On the downside, subscribing costs $10 a month on top of your regular Foxtel fee.

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.
