I bought this instead of getting the latest ROKU – was also considering an MAC Mini. I spent an extra $80 beyond a ROKU, and saved hundreds from a MAC, but much more functionality than a ROKU. Was very, very hesitant considering the low price, and seeing some very bad recent reviews complaining about slow function, problems with drivers and Windows 10. I figured if I had an issue, I would just return it and go with something else.
I didn’t buy the bundle with the webcam and Logitech K400 because the product description said it was pre-installed with Windows 10, and one recent reviewer pointed to bad driver issues with Win10, so I bought a standalone unit, trying to avoid Windows 10, and the Logitech K400 separately. My unit came pre-installed with Windows 10 out of the box anyway.
After initial setup, I immediately had issues with the mouse stuttering so much as to make the unit unusable. I called the Quantum Byte technical support line expecting to wait 30 minutes, I immediately spoke to a tech support representative who advised me to move the Logitech USB dongle from the rear to the side USB port. It has worked fine ever since. The Quantum Byte has built in Bluetooth, but I needed to use the dongle for initial setup, and have just left it in since.
I also had an issue with the Windows 10 desktop being larger than my TV screen, which basically cuts off part of the outside of the desktop so I couldn’t see the taskbar. This can be fixed by the overscan function on your TV remote. I have a 5-year-old Sanyo LCD, and Sanyo has a PIX SHAPE button on the remote, which will cycle through all available overscan configurations. I just cycled this button until all the available Windows desktop was shown on the TV screen.
I use it mainly as a media center, playing Netflix, YouTube and Amazon prime. I also added a 2 TB external hard drive, and also use it as a file server for our home. I added 3 separate log ins for our family members, and everyone enjoys it and had no performance or hardware issues.
It is very snappy for as small and basic as it is, especially with only 2gb of RAM. Very satisfied, and gave it 5 stars based on the value for the price.
