Consumer review (newegg.com)

Worked very well.

 

Other: I wanted to tell you that I have used this with the pro dock and it works very well, I have the Pro Dock in my bedroom and the Normal dock connected to my tv in my living room, I am using it to work in either location as a windows tv mode, so i...

I purchased this after working with the pro bundle version that has only 2 gigs of ram and 32 gigs of space for c. I went and purchased a copy of windows 10 pro from Microsoft and was able to plug in the usb drive and start the windows install. it ran...

Yes, it does get hot, but i bought a little fan for 5 bucks that i have blowing air on it and works well.

Half the storage speed of the Win10 version and loves to get hot

 

Overall, I should have just stuck with the win10 version. This one is superior by specs alone, actual performance lags the win10 edition pretty significantly.

Same form factor, additional storage and memory and not a huge price difference

I have both the Plus and regular version of this PC. The plus, while having twice the storage, is somehow running it at half the speed. non cached disk writes are around 70mb/s whereas the win10 edition is neared to 160mbs. The plus version must have...

Nice concept

 

This is a fun toy and can be used as a full time usable system, Main problem is the lack of development from Intel or OEM they just can't get the full power out of it without right drivers "API's" Once full drivers support is ready this thing will...

Small, low power, New concept, support do reply to questions, 4 gb ram, 64 gig Nand flash, windows drivers.

No LAN Port "this need to be a must built-in", No Linux support for the moment, no DVI or VGA port not much performance on windows 10 and can not run windows 7.

Great Cost & Size, but not for everyone

 

I love this machine. It's small, easy to move around, and doesn't take up a lot of space. I'll admit that if you're not computer savvy, getting the Kangaroo without the OS can be a bit tricky. After buying the OS, you'll need to create a boot usb drive...

- Cost - Size - Battery

- Low on Resources - Only compatible with Windows 10. Works with Windows 8.1, but the drivers offered do not work - Runs very hot

Great Product for the for the (Tech Savvy)

 

This has the potential to be a Great tool for all technicians in the industry. We just need a Pro-Dock to toss in the bag. I'm just saying :) please soon I have test waiting for it.

As a Biomed/I.T. Technician I was looking for a product like this to come along, thanks InFocus. Now let's get to Brass tacks, Win10 Pro easy to install and get up and running WO/issue have your drivers ready. Tested W/HDMI on monitor w/built in audio...

No Pro-Dock, (Yet) Please sell the Pro-Dock soon! Feel free to comment when :)

No Auto Power on after power loss feature in the BIOS

 

Should be ok for Home use but you need to supply the O/S. Will load a 30 day trial with no issues.

Definitely faster than the Intel Compute sticks. Nice that it has 4 GB of ram and 64 GB of storage.

No Auto Power on after power loss feature in the BIOS. I understand it has a battery but the cheap $100 Intel Compute sticks have this basic feature. Also didn't see USB stick to load windows, have used this same stick many times on Vensmile and Intel...

Innovative Design.

 

- If the heat issue could be addressed, and thus stop the Throttling problem. you would have a great product. - I don't know if there is an issue w/mine of not enough Thermal Compound. I didn't want to open it up and find out. Or there being a bad heat...

- Nice design, being nice and small, and easy to carry around like a cell phone. - Using it w/an iPad worked. - Windows 10 was easy to install using a USB memory stick.

- Heat is a BIG problem. With temperatures of around 65 Celsius, at idle, to as high as 83, using IE. The Throttling shouldn't have kicked in until 90 Celsius. - There was a great deal of Throttling, up and down, almost like a sine wave, using the...

Very dissapointed in my purchase

 

I talked with InFocus support this morning and they claimed that the problem is with the bios not having a comparability mode and that is why Windows 7 will not load on it. That may be the problem but I doubt it, after poking around in the UEIF bios of...

is an interesting concept

I based my purchase decision based upon the information given on the product page, unfortunately with respect to what OS you are able to install it is very misleading and incomplete. In the main page heading it states that this is a NON OS version of...

Very Innovative! Low Power Usage, HTPC Solution.

 

Some might find the lack of connection options frustrating (1 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.0, and 1 HDMI port, bluetooth and WiFi) I currently have an mini Bluetooth Keyboard mouse Combo, USB to ethernet Cable, and 32 GB Thumb-drive (For media expansion) plugged...

Small, fits in your Pocket (about the Size of a Large Cell Phone) Quite, Unit is fan less and makes no noise Detachable port makes it very portable Ample CPU and Storage in this unit

Audio Over HDMI Does not work with Windows 10 pro installed. I currently have it paired via Bluetooth to a TV sound bar

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Installing Windows 10 Home was easy using USB flash drive. Booting is fast. Storage is sufficient to install Windows and Office applications. I use it

 

Small size, great price, fast booting

Limited connectivity: I have a webcam, 2 printers and 1 portable hard disk but manageable with a USB hub
