Slow and hard to use, but frustratingly functional
6 November 2013
Summary: I needed a windows based tablet to sync with my laptop for my business programming. This was not my choice but a gift to me. It does function and sync as I need it, but is so terribly slow and the touch response is so poor that it makes it almost unusable in a business setting. I have had it for almost a year, giving different settings a try and trying to trim down its use to a business only unit with no frills, but still has troubles.
Summary: This tablet is great for data input. Fujitsu is one of the preferred brands by government agencies like FEMA and others. Programs may be slow in opening but once open they work just fine. It is really not a media tablet. I work outside collecting data and this tablet with its digitizer pen is the perfect tool. Just hit the check-box or radial button with the pen on the data collection software and its tap, tap, tap, and you're done.
Summary: I bought this tablet for school and it works good. It is a little slow and patience is needed, but for the price I couldn't beat it since I wanted something that did more than just social media and apps.
I wouldn't buy the Q550 as my main computer .. It's not good at all .. not one bit. not for travel, not for anything.. so much..

Summary: Why did I buy this thing? The Q550 is an experiment for me, nothing more. It is not my main computer, I have a win7 and vista laptops, android tablets, and they are far more user friendly and productive than the Q550. I bought the Q550 cuz it only cost 280 bucks and I wanted to try the windows 7 version of a tablet. And I have a couple of windows programs that I want to experiment with in tablet mode. The Good: The tablet arrived quickly and on time and in a sealed box.
Summary: This is a pc in a tablet body, you can't compare a fujitsu stylicic with other tablets. If you looking for a fancy tablet to surf the web an choose a movie, this device is way to much, this is a pc with all the skills you need, office 7 runs excellent, but don't upgrade it to windows 8, there is a few complications and its better to buy the 572 model that suports w8.
Summary: I cant get online with this thing: I have an access point at my house: my laptop and phone picks it up right away. it has three bars: but the q550 wont pick up anything: it says limited access. which means no internet. the tablet is nice but if it wont pick weak signals I don't want it.
Summary: I've possessed this tablet for a little of a few weeks now. Its been an up and down journey with this tablet, hence the title. =========================================== One day I was possessed to buy a tablet. I think what drove this impulse home was because I just got my tax refund. But currently I carry an HP laptop around with me and its bulky and tiring to use (pull out of bag, insert power cord, open up top, ouch its burning my lap!
