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.

Sharp PN-40TC1 Huddle Board

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic

I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
