Kangaroo is awesome Jump Start

 

was not charged when i took it out of the box not bad or good

sets up real quick, boots fast after the initial setup took very little time to charge I'm already connected to my TV and the Internet plays browser games well, will put word, power point, and outlook on it later, used wireless for everything

nothing so far

Great little computer!

 

Great little machine. I purchased it for my electronics workbench in the garage, and it's working out great so far.

-Cheap! -Small, fits in my pocket -Internal battery! -Can use USB power adapter if the proprietary charger is unavailable -Decent WiFi

-Little SSD space. (the SD card slot is a must) -2 gb of ram hinders performance.

For such a small form factor, this little computer rocks !

 

Highly recommended !!

It can do most everything you ask of it with ease - it's supplied connections are just enough to make it very usable in most situations. It boot very fast with Windows 10 and can do multi. applications when asked - although somewhat slowly.

Would like to see a 4 Gb ram and 64 Gb hard drive with windows 10 installed - I would but another one if they do this !!

Good First Attempt

 

I recommed the new pro version so you have all your ports and can attach a 2.5 SATA drive. If you are willing to wait for the pro version with upgraded memory or when they sell the pro dock separately then do so.

I was in love of the form factor and showed off to my IT co-workers and boss. It does what it says it does. The OS Linux does a great job displaying on the IPad Mini 3 and can install full applications such as Visual Studio CA edition. The concept is...

My only concern is if you need to do a system recovery and/or need java. The java install kept not finishing and was difficult to remove. I tried a system restore but now it will not boot. I tried to boot via a usb bootable media and it will not boot....

Great Product! What's up NewEgg

 

Original Review- Pros: - The two we purchased for company worked perfect, one is running Lubuntu now. - One I brought home for testing last week worked perfect, streamed vids from multiple sources with ease. - Initially got really warm, but cooled down...

I'm currently using our test unit from work until my replacement arrives from another supplier (see Cons below). The Kangaroo blows the Compute Stick out of the water with performance. I love mine and me and the roommates pretty much have it streaming...

For some unknown reason, NewEgg is now no longer able to ship the Kangaroo to Wisconsin. I originally purchased one March 30 and received it on April 5. Upon discovering the overheat/locking up issue I contacted NewEgg to start a replacement RMA but...

Revising my Review, new score is 5 stars!!!

 

I initially gave it a 3 stars because of the appalling slow performance, especially when I browsed youtube. Web page took a minute to load and if I open more than 3 taps at once, they do not load at all. In the end I found out the issue was the...

-Turned my 50 inch 4k tv into a media consumption machine -insanely fast wireless ac. Okland speed test yields 60 mps. that is insane. -boot up fast -myriads of nice features like wifi direct for in home htpc streaming or VNC, ipad as a screen, and...

-no in built fan. PC easily gets hot and throttle. I easily fixed that by purchasing a small usb fan. -2 gigs of ram which is common for mini pcs and netbooks these days. it's not adequate for multitasking -The processor is meant for smartphone and...

disappointing

 

price, size, features

can't handle basic tasks well. Surfing and using office is time consuming because it tends to pause, waiting for data I guess. Can't do more than one thing. Doesnt stream well.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

So much expectation, somewhat disappointed...

 

- Due to previous experience, would really consider bumping this back up to the 5 egg rating I was going to write from our company's initial purchase. - By the way, previous units worked flawlessly with my Vizio 32" 1080p TV.

- The two we purchased for company worked perfect, one is running Lubuntu now. - One I brought home for testing last week worked perfect, streamed vids from multiple sources with ease. - Initially got really warm, but cooled down after a while.

- Unit purchased for personal use locks up or BSODS after a short time being on, possible thermal failure. - Video choppy and out of sync when it works. - Unit is not even warm right now and locked up at desktop with no apps open. - Restart will...

Excellent Windows for iPad with the OSLinx Software.

 

Recommend this as a solution for "iPad displaying Windows"

Pretty remarkable little product, full blown fun!, Run Windows through the lightning cable on an iPad to use the iPad as a display, just download the OSLinx from the app store and install the linx server software on the pc and FUN, FUn, Fun!

Not a lot knowing what is is used for, the only con I have is the dock, should be one piece of equipment, instead of one and a dock.
