Kangaroo Mobile Desktop Computer KJ2B#001-NA Intel Atom X5-Z8500 (1.44 GHz) 2 GB LPDDR3 32 GB eMMC Windows 10 Home

Pros: Small. On board battery works well. PnP. It's Windows 10 so you know what to expect. Two USBs on the dock.

Cons: The WiFi is weak. The connection drops after a few hours. Has to be manually reconnected. Hopefully drivers may resolve the issue.
It has a hard time multitasking, which isn't surprising but the extreme drop in performance was. Can be frustrating when Windows does things in the background and then the video you are watching will start to stutter. Changing tasks to run at another times works, but some tasks are event driven.
-No stereo jack. That means HDMI or Bluetooth is the only way to get sound.

Other Thoughts: The dock fits firmly, but don't wiggle it to get it out. The guide rails are fragile. Wish it had a release button instead of PULL until it gives.

StarTech.com USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) Single-Bay Dock for 2.5

Pros: It's has a solid feel. Light isn't too annoying

Cons: Haven't been able to get more than 105 MB/s with is what I get with 3.0. I tried it with an add-on 3.1 gen2 card only got 90 MB/s. Tried it with a new HP laptop with 3.1 and again didn't get 3.1. Still not 100% it's the docks fault. My high end laptop top that has 3.1/thunderbolt3 only has a C adapter with didn't come with the doc so I haven't been able to test it. One final test and then it's going back.

Other Thoughts: --- Update ----
Tested it on a brand new Windows 10 64 with USB 3.1 Gen2 system and still only gives USB 3.0 speeds.
Item is being returned as defective.

Pros: Excellent wireless range. Small form factor. Reasonably quiet.

Cons: It gets hot. It's 64 in the room its in and you can feel the heat. I'm worried when summer comes.
Data transfer is slow from it's drive. Transfers through the router hit 50MB, but reading from the internal drive, 21MB max.
The WB to go app for the iPhone stutters A LOT. Can't watch a simple video without it pausing several times.

Other Thoughts: It doesn't support Jumbo Frames.
