  • Unusable due to WiFi issues

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    On paper, this is a great device - it can turn your simple TV into something better than a smart TV by harnessing the power of the Android ecosystem.
    The device comes pre-rooted.

    Cons:

    The WiFi chip on this device is known to be problematic - don't take my word for it, use Google. There's all sorts of purported fixes, but why take the risk? Get something better, maybe a Raspberry Pi or an Android device based on better hardware.

    OtherThoughts:

    I bought this as a birthday present, and ended up very disappointed. It's not stable, the WiFi issues make it UNUSABLE - even when you get a good signal, there's the occasional loss of signal for minutes at a time. This is still true for me even after having another antenna professionally soldered on the device.

    Bottomline:

    I regret buying this, I read about the WiFi issues before but I thought I could apply one of the fixes. DO NOT BUY THIS IF YOUR WIFI ROUTER IS NOT IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF THE TV.
