4 out of 5 eggsGreat little computer!

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

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

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

Manufacturer Response:

Darrell,

Thank you for enjoying our product! If the 2GB RAM is too small for you, we do have the Kangaroo Plus for 4GB RAM and 64 GB of storage space.

Thank you for being an awesome customer,

4 out of 5 eggsFor such a small form factor, this little computer rocks !

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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 !!

Other Thoughts: Highly recommended !!

Manufacturer Response:

Larry,

There is a Kangaroo Plus that has 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage. Windows 10 is compatible with this device and you are more than welcome to purchase a license key and download Windows on to the Kangaroo.

Thank you,

4 out of 5 eggsGood First Attempt

Pros: 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 great and would definitely order another but with the pro dock and upgraded memory however that combo is nor in the works thus far.

Cons: 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. Just get the looping kangaroo logo as there are no options at boot to allow me access to the boot manager. A ticket to infocus has already been sent.

Other Thoughts: 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.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Due to the constant rebooting, I would go ahead and call our technical support at 877-388-8360 to have your device exchanged. I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product! What's up NewEgg

Pros: 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 or surfing most of the day when we're home.

The wireless connection is very stable, considering the wireless router is on the other side of the house, doesn't drop at all. Download speeds for apps is consistently on par with the wired connection with my computer. Bluetooth link to keyboard is very strong.

Cons: 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 was informed that the Kangaroo could not be shipped to Wisconsin. We set up the return as a refund and then today I attempted to purchase a new one through NewEgg, can't ship to Wisconsin.

I have now ordered one through another supplier for a higher price, it will be delivered Saturday the 16th. OK, why is it another supplier can deliver it to Wisconsin but NewEgg cannot?

I guess my company will be ordering future Kangaroos from another supplier instead of NewEgg, unless this issue can be sorted out...

Other Thoughts: 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 after a while.
Cons:

- 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 sometimes result in scrambled video, requiring holding power button to shut it down and then starting back up again.
Other Thoughts:

- 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.
Kangaroo Response:Curtis,

You may have a defective device and I would be happy to troubleshoot your Kangaroo with you. Feel free to call us at 1-877-388-8360 and we would be happy to take a look at it!

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience,
Sarah R., InFocus Customer Support

Manufacturer Response:

Curtis,

Thank you for your positive review, and I am unsure why NewEgg is not shipping to Wisconsin. The Kangaroo is now available on InFocus' online store. Thank you for being such a great customer.

Have a great day,

5 out of 5 eggsRevising my Review, new score is 5 stars!!!

Pros: -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 finger print scanner

Cons: -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 tablet hence the performance is worse than a weak entry level laptop with a Pentium cpu. The atom z8500 is still faster than celeron however.

Other Thoughts: 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 Bluetooth. Don't turn on both wifi and Bluetooth at the same time. The two seem to conflict. Wifi doesn't work well with Bluetooth on. YouTube now loads in 3-8 seconds, much better than before.

Opening 3 or more tags still slow down the system tho. This is efinitly due to low ram. If you have cash to spare, definitly get the 4 gigs version. You can buy a windows 8 license key for $20 on g2a.com and then upgrade to windows 10 for free. Otherwise, get linux (ubuntu or mint). Linux performs so much better than windows 10, especially for low spec devices like kangaroo.

All in all, its great value for the price, the best actually when compared to its competitors at similar price points.

Manufacturer Response:

Xiangshuai,

I am glad you are enjoying the Kangaroo. Your cons are common among our customers and we are working to develop a better device. I would recommend a cooling pad or having a small fan run over the device to keep it cool.Thank you for being such a great customer.

Thank you,

3 out of 5 eggsdisappointing

Pros: price, size, features

Cons: 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.

Manufacturer Response:

Michael,

I am sorry you are disappointed in the KG. I would make sure all of your drivers are up to date given your KG is acting slow. You are more than welcome to call us at 877-388-8360 so we can troubleshoot or exchange your device.

Thank you,

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Windows for iPad with the OSLinx Software.

Pros: 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!

Cons: 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.

Other Thoughts: Recommend this as a solution for "iPad displaying Windows"

Manufacturer Response:

Jeremiah,

I am glad you are enjoying the product. The reason the dock disconnects is for future generations of the Kangaroo, we were hoping to have docks with different types of ports such as ethernet or an audio jack.

Thank you so much for your business,
