Perfect mini PC for astrophotography enthusiasts for remote control of the equipment.

Pros: It is very lightweight and attaching it to an OTA is an option. Runs Windows 10 and powerful enough to run any equipment you may need, it has USB 3.0 which is great. I'm running all kinds of software including APT, PHD, Backyard EOS, plate solving software, and Sky Safari simultaneously with absolutely no problem. Built in switch on the side allows to activate the network and connect to it wirelessly without needing to install any additional VNC or Teamviewer software and use it in the field where no internet is available using windows remote desktop. Built in battery allows it to run for up to 4 hours under heavy load which is a nice bonus. I have been using this mini PC 2 month and running my telescope mount, guiding camera and main imaging camera off of this PC and controlling everything wirelessly with no problems. It works stable and reliable. Wireless network performs better than my $900 Lenovo laptop with AC1800 adapter. I position my telescope about 40 feet away from the house and it still connects to my in home WIFI allowing me to control it wirelessly.

Cons: USB 3.0 sometimes can underperform if you're using high performance devices with very high traffic demind. I was able to solve this problem by connecting powered USB 3.0 hub with it's own power supply and run everything off of it. Power supply plug is loose and wobbly. Having an integrated battery definitely helps to prevent unexpected power loses but you need to pay attention to the charging icon to make sure that it is plugged in and charging.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why but the manufacturer company InFocus has no information about this product on their website. Customer service is very responsive if you can find their support website which can be tricky. It is well hidden end doesn't show up via google search or on the manufacturers website. the website provided in the documentation doesn't work any more, some advertised features like connecting it to an Ipad and using it as a screen for Kangaroo is not supported any more. I have a feeling that they are discontinuing this product which is a shame.

Great for a door stop and collecting dust.

Pros: Cute little box

Cons: Runs hot when docked. Comes with Win 10 Home so no admin utilities. No Remote Desktop or user admin, etc... Disk is full when delivered. Mine wanted to run a win 10 update but erred out every time with not enough hard drive space. Finally got it to upgrade after many days and at the last reboot said Windows is restoring original OS. Deletes all downloads and forces you to start over. Zero assistance from Kangaroo. Cannot install the apps I needed on this thing. Do not waste your money.

OK, but can be so much better

Pros: Z8500 quad with 4 GB ram performs well, with Windows10 Home
Will run Linux with effort

Cons: Only certain USB keyboards work prior to boot to enter bios.
Battery will not charge and unit overheats. This is a defect in the battery charging circuit. I done what another reviewer did, remove the covers and battery. Now unit runs cool. since the unit is VESA mounted to display. The dock should be part of unit, since unit is useless without it. mini USB useless, no ventilation ports.

Other Thoughts: I purchase an IView stick with older quad core Z3735F intel and only 2GB memory and 32GB emmc drive. Came with a nifty wireless keybord. Was significantly cheaper and works way better overall than Kangaroo. Nice ideal but no kudos for this unit due to many shortcomings.

Have had unit for over year now. Had to modify case to prevent overheating by remove top cover( not easy)
Replace with a sturdy fine aluminum mesh using small dabs of JB Weld at 6 location also put heat transfer compound on top of their heat sink metal(steel) and let it mesh into the mesh. Unit still is warm but has never over heated as before. Still looks attractive! A lot of work to make the unit usable.

Its a full on desktop, although the Atom x5 chip isnt very fast. its an extremely good buy, but remember its not crazy fast.

Pros: This is a great deal no matter which way you look at it, i have 2, the kangaroo, and kangaroo plus. This comes with 2gigs of ram and 32 gig of hd space, and importantly windows 10. its everything you need to get going minus the keyboard and mouse. i suggest going wireless via an external usb hub to increase usb ports. Its small portable and noiseless. and if you dont like it your not loosing much money wise $169. fingerprint reader sd slot micro usb as well. again all for $169, you cant beat it.

Cons: Of course its major issue is speed. its not fast. liveable yes but the atom x5 chip is what it is. Upgradeable? no, not unless your a diy wiz. The kangaroo deluxe come with this very kangroo pc with windows but with a expanded hub that allows the connection of a harddrive, which can greatly increase performance. along with an rs232 port, audio jack, additional usb and ethernet. chip and ram remain the same. As for this kangaroo, dont look for blazing fast performance. when youve accepted that fact then you can peacefully live with it, things like Youtube video also doesnt get effected by its speed, only large video file playback. also the unit can get hot. make sure to keep it elevated. but it overcomes heat issues over time.

Major flaw with product / 1 attempted install and product is bricked / No support from Kangaroo.

Pros: None

Cons: As advertised by Kangaroo: "NOW YOU CAN INSTALL ANY OS ONTO YOUR KANGAROO"
I tried to install a version of Linux ONCE and it crashed. I was then unable to read any media from the USB port. I contacted Kangaroo and they informed me that some versions of Linux corrupt and brick the BIOS. Now the PC is (according to Kangaroo) garbage. There is no warning about this, and I am shocked that Kangaroo won't provide ANY support whatsoever.

The second one works great.

Pros: The return and exchange policy at newegg was very easy and fast.
My new unit works very well. I installed Linux (Lubuntu distribution) and it is fast. I streamed on Netflix, watched downloaded videos without any lag. I also tested Steam in home streaming to play games running on my main computer and it was pretty good, some lag but very playable.
The unit makes absolutely no sound as there is no moving parts (not even a fan), which is great for a media center.

Cons: On the first unit I received, the bios got corrupted after a reboot almost just after installing linux. The support guy at Kangaroo told me that it happens on rare occasions... but he couldn't tell me if I had done something wrong and if I could do something to prevent it from happening. The problem is that there is no way on this unit to reset the bios of flash a new version. I had to return it for an exchange. Now my new unit is working, but I hope it won't happen again.
It is said that linux is suported, but the sound was not working on hdmi (and its the only sound output). It was very complicated to find the solution but I finally did. I should post a guide somewhere.
Also as all the ports (hdmi, usbs and power) are on the same side (on the dock) there is no place for a large usb memory stick although It is not a big problem.

Other Thoughts: I would now give five stars to the product as it is working as expected and more, but I have to give only three because of the corrupted bios which makes me hesitant to recommend this product to someone or to buy again from that company. It is not normal that this can happen and that the only solution is a replacement. It happened so fast that I could return it to newegg, I did not have to deal with Kangaroo for the return so I can't review their service but I'm pretty sure it would have been longer and I may have had to pay for the shipping. Note that there is a one year warranty, what if the bios got corrupted after that period ?

The only one of its kind, reasonably priced for what you're getting

Pros: BATTERY! BATTERY! BATTERY! why can't anyone else put battery!?
Size

Cons: Want an m-core

Other Thoughts: If heat is an issue, purchase a vacuum CPU cooler. They're small and portable enough and works wonders.
