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..
7 July 2013
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: 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: My hospital just purchased twenty of these for 5 outpatient offices to accompany our new electronic health record software. Basically the IT people wanted to get something that would run not only the EHR, but also other proprietary software for older health systems already in place on the hospital network. The new EHR is compliant with Android, and has work-arounds that allow it to run on iPad.
Summary: For starters, Fujitsu should be embarrassed as a company to sell this product and I do not understand why it has received any positive reviews. Primary reason for purchase: Business tool. I wanted a devise that was capable of running a true version of MS Excel in its proper environment. I got that in this devise. The problem is, on job sites, it is very difficult to enter into Excel cells accurately with the stylus. I do not save any time with this devise.
Summary: First device, purchased from Allegiance, not Amazon: As soon as I opened Internet Explorer the stylus quit working. It worked fine every time I start the device, but then quit immediately whenever I got to the Windows desktop. Tech support is clueless: had me install 3 drivers, then suggested I change the battery in the stylus and offered to send a new stylus. Returned to Fujitsu. Came back to me without the original box, bouncing around without sufficient packing.
Summary: OK, so maybe I'm spoiled by the post iPhone world. I just received the Q550 and I'm disappointed. Our company has used the Fujitsu tablets for years for documenting in the field. We have a custom "program" which runs on a crapload of macros in MS Word, so we need a tablet that will run windows (so iPad and android systems won't work). The older tablets are fine for doing this but I was hoping for so much more with a new model. First off, the auto rotate feature sucks.
Summary: This tablet is advertised as 30GB but 25GB is taken up by the windows 7 and other system files. Thats without the updates to windows 7! I just bought one and after the windows 7 down loaded all its regular updates, I am now left with 2.5GB free space! The tablet must also be used with the stylus at all times. forget using your fingers! Its far too tempremental and unresponsive.
Summary: This is the worst tablet/pc/laptop I have ever seen. The "30"GB is a "lie"! it only has 5 GB free usable space to start with (all the other 25GB are taken up by the system files). The processor is also incredibly under powered and is running 100% CPU Usage for majority of the time, even for things like web browsing! absolute waste of money. Anyone who says otherwise has some invested interest or is trying to convience themselves that they have not been coned!
Summary: We got sent 2 of these for work purposes. Safe to say from day one we had issues. After all the updates have been installed for the OS and programs the space left on the SD card drops to around 6GB left. Just general use of the device is incredibly irritating when trying to first log in. Not to mention running programs. only one thing to say. For the money you would spend on this product. Buy an iPad.
