Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Computer KJ2B#001-NA Intel Atom X5-Z8500 (1.44 GHz) 2 GB LPDDR3 32 GB eMMC Windows 10 Home
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Size
Price
Ease of installation - Fired right up first time - no bloatware!
Connected over a secure WiFi network with no problem.
Bluetooth worked and connects readily.
HDMI port convenient for proper monitor.
Its great to be able to put a desktop in your pocket

It is a real mobile desktop...as advertised. I love this little critter

Cons: Understanding the limitations that an eMMC drive has I have no problem with it in this type of device other than there just isn't enough of it. After enduring the Windows 10 updates and installing some basic security software (NOD32, Malwarebytes, CCleaner) and Firefox There are only 9GB left available.

2GB of LPDDT3 is cutting it pretty close to the bone - it works, it's ok, but it does limit running programs simultaneously

Other Thoughts: Yes, a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse would make a nice bundle.

Personally, I can't stand Window 10 but I have to remain proficient in its use. I use this primarily to demonstrate Windows 10 and offer technical support to my clients most of whom get a kick out of the Kangaroo and want to buy one.

My original, more lengthy, detailed and better written review was zapped by the digital spirits when I went to submit it so I had to hurry this. But I'm quite pleased and recommend it.

Corsair Flash Voyager GTX USB 3.0 128 GB, Zinc Alloy Casing, Read 450 MBs - Write 360 MBs, Plug and Play (CMFVYGTX3B-128GB)
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid all metal (Zinc alloy/aluminum) construction.
5 Year warranty.
Fastest flash drive I've ever used or seen.
Will fit all but the most cramped USB 3 or 2 slots.
It's not inexpensive but you will get what you pay for.

Cons: I'm not complaining.

Other Thoughts: 3.25 long x 1' wide

Used this to store and transfer images. What a blast. I mean there is just no wait time. Bang. It's done.

Took just a over minute to copy over 8.5GB of files.

The Corsair CMFVYGTX3B-128GB is simply superb.

TP-LINK UH700 USB 3.0 7 port Desktop Hub, with Power Adapter
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Just what I needed 03/04/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK UH700 USB 3.0 7 port Desktop Hub, with Power Adapter

Pros: Plug and play.
Detected everything I plugged into it.
Excellent value.
I like that it is small and light. I just taped it down to a monitor base with double sided tape.
Top mounted power button and LED light is a great convenience.

Cons: Short 3' USB cable. Should be about 6'.
If maxed out it's slightly underpowered.

Other Thoughts: I love flight simming with Prepar3d on the computer and this powered USB hub is great for powering all my Saitek Pro Flight Controllers: rudder pedals, yoke, gauges, led panels, etc..
As far as more mundane desktop devices go I had no problem with cameras, HDDs, and all the other gizmos I've collected.
