Categories > Mobile Gaming Console > MAD CATZ > Mad Catz M.O.J.O. Micro-Console for Android

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Abandoned By Mad Catz
Pros: Top end hardware!
Cons: Bad design
Poor implementation!
Bad support.
Other Thoughts: After having to RMA the first unit I purchased and having issues with the second on it is apparent to me that Mad Catz has Abandoned the MOJO! I say this for a number of reasons. 1. I was told by a tech support supervisor "No one here really has experience with the MOJO". 2) Mad Catz blog post from October talking about mobile phones & tablets taking over the living room, not Android consoles (like the MOJO). 3) The MOJO is still shipping with the v1 CTRLr which needs a dongle even though the MOJO has been updated to work with the v2 CTRLr. 4) The FAQ talks about changes in updates that will take place by the end of 2014 yet as of December 15, 2014 non of the tech supports have been informed of any upcoming updates to the MOJO.

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Yeah, this is my new set-top box.
Pros: The power of the Tegra 4 is undeniable - I like it a lot! I love the multi-mode controller - it's an excellent touch. The Micro-SD card slot is an often-overlooked feature that should be more common on this type of device - I'm glad Mad Catz remembered to include it*. USB 3.0 (AND USB 2.0) host ports - great for all these new, high-speed USB drives. OUYA Everywhere pre-installed (as well as the Google Play Store) - I can play all my OUYA games faster and smoother than on the OUYA. The form factor of this box is quite nice and it doesn't seem to heat up much... ever.
Cons: The price. I bought mine when I saw it go on sale here (very briefly) for $149, which I think is a good price point for this type of device. However, with all the other Android set-top options available in the $100 price range, it is at least a little tough to pay such a high premium, even for a rig as nice as this one. It's not hard to justify $199 - the features ARE worth it - but it's a crowded market space, so Mad Catz is fighting some stiff competition.
Other Thoughts: Once I installed XBMC and the XBMC Launcher app (to make XBMC my default launcher), life was good. My Android apps are easy to launch from the Programs menu and the XBMC Uesr Interface is easy to see and use on ANY television. The OUYA is good, the M.O.J.O. is great!

I wasn't about to take away a star for something this trivial, but I really would like to see a KitKat-based firmware. Jellybean is a perfectly fine version of Android, but there are a couple of features built into KitKat that I'd like to play with on my M.O.J.O. I'm certain they'll address this in a future Firmware update (which is easy to do OTA, BTW) but for now, I'm enjoying my M.O.J.O. sans one or two nice-to-haves.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Mad Catz Mojo
Pros: Tegra 4 quad core, great storage- USB 2.0 and 3.0 and micro SD card makes storage a non issue. Controller that comes with it has mouse mode and game mode making it easy to navigate, may want a bluetooth keyboard or fly mouse if you type a lot.

After rooting (easy to do) you have full access to play store. The compatible games play great on here. It serves as a perfect emulator if you like playing old school N64, NES, Sega etc.

Media Player- perfect for watching videos- HBOGO, Netflix, Showtime, etc all work great for HD playback with no issues. Also use it with MediaBrowser 3 android app for access to my entire video library without a hitch.

Can connect wired ethernet, wifi 2.4 and 5 ghz. Wifi has been good overall and have not tried ethernet yet, but will.

It's very well packaged, very low power usage, no noise or fan.
Cons: Price. I got it after the price drop to $199, but with the AMZN Fire now out, the price needs to come down to $150, and at that price it's an amazing deal. Needs more natively supported games, which is coming, but somewhat low now. However, depending on the game, you can set up the controls.

It is limited to PCM and Dolby Digital, no DTS sound capabilities, not really an issue for me, but could be for some.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very happy with this unit. You need to root this item and it's really easy to do. Also it doesn't have a power off button, it just goes into a very deep sleep after a bit of not using.

Kit Kat is supposed to be coming soon, Ouya store access as well as NVIDIA gamestream to stream games from your computer. If you like Android games, this is a great unit and doubles as a great media player.

Pros: + Great performance
+ For the games that are there, good entertainment
Cons: Does not support many games from the Google Play store, which is contrary to everything I've read. Games I've purchased on my smartphone are "not compatible" on the Mad Catz.
