Really wanted this to work....

Pros: great idea

Cons: runs hot
not reliable

Other Thoughts: I really liked the design and would be perfect for my needs if it worked.
I used it for about 60 days before it failed with some kind of video issue. Customer service was responsive, but can't fix a hardware failure by email, so I sent it in for repair. Got it back while I was traveling, so it sat for several months unused.
I finally got home and tried it again and it worked great for about 2 hours to watch a movie on Netflix and then I shut it down for about 4 hours. Turned it on again and it got as far as starting Windows then the video went dead again. Didn't recognize the keyboard for function keys either. Of course, the warranty ended last month so not worth paying to get fixed.
Anyone at Kangaroo want to help?

Great computer, but not kid-proof

Pros: - Fast enough to run all our programs including some of the low-demand games my kids play (like LoL)
- Compact size and quiet operation are great
- Internal battery is a great idea
- Cost point (where it even includes Windows) is great
- Seems to respond more quickly than Lenovo's stick
- only a Single con (below), but otherwise just what we were looking for

Cons: The only con I found is:
- The docking station can be plugged in backwards and still allows the plugged-in computer to power up and be fried.
My kids were very interested in how the docking port worked and one got too curious and tried connecting the computer-docking station upside-down and plugging it back in. This, of course fried the computer. 2 things might have helped this not happen: 1) Powering on ONLY works when docking station is connected properly, and 2) more obvious markings to guide matching up the connection. I'm sure this was probably not designed for kids, and so it is not kid-proof.

Only complaint though. And it really comes down to design vs. target user. I'll probably be buying a replacement kangaroo (even though this incident happened way back in March and we still haven't replaced it). And this time I'll train the kids better or not let them touch it. :)

Other Thoughts: - I would recommend this to anyone looking for a ~$100 pc that runs windows and apps great
- I will probably replace my broken one with another kangaroo -- just waiting for my wife's approval :)
- The only change I would like to see is to have the docking adapter more kid-proof -- mostly that the power does not work if the computer is not connected correctly.

Portable, but...

Pros: Small form factor. Docking station includes two USB (one 2.0, one 3.0). Adequate for web browsing and lightweight applications.

Cons: SSD is too small to handle the latest big Win10 update.

Mobile only works if you take along the docking station or buy a second one; the computer by itself has zero interfaces - no USB< no HDMI.

Other Thoughts: I've got a Logitech keyboard with a trackpad that travels nicely with this computer, together with a HDMI cable. Plug it in to your hotel TV and you've got a reasonable portable computer. But the docking station is a bit of a misnomer; you'll be travelling with the full computer + docking station for day to day use, making me question the utility of the docking station as a concept here.

GREAT little machine... BUT

Pros: built tough, silent, four-core CPU, good 'ol WINDOWS, battery backup is priceless, fingerprint reader is great

Cons: herky-jerky hi-def video playback (fine at 720p),

Other Thoughts: According to machine's spec.s there should be no problem running MS ICE 2.03, and the 64bit version downloaded and installed just fine,but it refuses to lunch, even with 16g microSD added. I don't know if this is hardware or software 's problem.

Small Product - Even Less Power + Overheats BADLY

Pros: - Small
- HDMI Output
- Two USB Ports

Cons: - Overheats BADLY. Purchased an Octopus fan to cool it. That fan died and I had to buy another to replace it. I even purchased a laptop dock cooling pad as a backup. Even with the cooling pad, when streaming video via Edge browser, it still overheats.
- USB ports so close together hard to get two things plugged in if a USB connector is thick (from the laptop cooling pad.)

Other Thoughts: - I purchased this strictly to stream video via the internet (Edge only) as I'm a cable cutter. I stream content from PLEX, Netflix, HBO:GO, and Xfinity TV. All stream fine (some stuttering once in a while), but the PC is noticeably slower than anything else I've ever used, and if you plan to stream content via VLC or Acestream, say goodbye. I tried streaming a broadcast via Acestream and this thing struggled. Horrible video stuttering and lag while the audio was fine.

All other content is fine via the browser (slow to get going) but man does this thing overheat. I would recommend buying a cheaper Mini PC vs. this $99 Kangaroo PC that does not seem to get the job done, if this is what you're purchasing this for.

Good Product. Good price for the package.

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.

kangaroo mini-comp

Pros: mainly for vids on new tv, works great at that. does much more than media player it's replacing, handles all video formats i've tried with it. smaller than some of the external hard drives i hook up to it. came with the kangaroo dock which its limited connectivity needs. very good at delivering what i wanted.

Cons: wi-fi reception could be better, but that's not really what i got it for, just a potential limitation in the long run. limited inputs even with dock.

Other Thoughts: usb hub is needed with this, at least 4 port, powered 7 port or more even better.

Manufacturer Response:
We would like to try to help if you're open to a call or an email dialog..

There are several possible causes. Some are pretty obvious, such as high CPU or GPU utilization or environmental conditions, but there's also a few things which may not be so obvious -- such as the type of display the device is connected to. The Kangaroo Mobile Desktop supports Full HD, which is 1080p. If the the device is connected to a higher end 4K panel then the GPU portion of the Intel SoC will be working overtime to decode video, which will certainly cause the system to throttle.

Please feel free to send me an email. I would like to make sure we remedy the situation for you.
