Our Fujitsu reader reviews program has come to an end; winner announced

The winner of our first Good Gear Guide Evaluation Team program has been announced

Late last year, we introduced the Good Gear Guide Evaluation Team program, in which we open up the product review process to small and medium business users, whom we call Good Gear Testers. The goal of the Evaluation Team is to get new technology into the hands of the people who need it most, allowing them to review new equipment for roll-outs in their business, or as BYOD solutions.

This is the first of many reader-based product reviews programs we hope to bring you.

We’re happy to report that our inaugural program fetched over 100 participants who were keen to get their hands on some new technology by the first vendor to participate in this program: Fujitsu. Fujitsu supplied three different products to these users directly so that they could be trialled in everyday work environments, on the road, and at home. These products were the Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 hybrid tablet, the Stylistic Q572 tablet, and the Lifebook UH574 Ultrabook.

While the program is mainly for the benefit of the participants, to see if a particular piece of technology suits their business needs, we also asked users to submit a review of the equipment they tested. We wanted them to give a real-world perspective on how the devices performed for the various functions that were used. Of these reviews, we selected one winning review that we think gives a fair representation of the product’s abilities and features, as well as healthy criticism.

The winning review we have selected is from Kathy Cassidy, who provides a good rundown of the Q702 hybrid tablet in her write-up, from its style and top-heavy design, to its handwriting recognition and battery life. For her efforts, she will receive her very own Fujitsu Stylistic Q702. Congratulations, Kathy.

Fujistu's Stylistic Q702 received lots of positive feedback from our Good Gear Testers, though many complained about the price.

HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
