RV_ Posted October 21, 2015 Report Share Posted October 21, 2015 Several months ago I bought a tiny computer that is essentially a tablet with battery and all, minus screen all packed into a 5"X5"X1/2 inch case. I know all the folks like Jack who are having issues switching over to the Windows ecosphere when they are completely immersed in the Android ecosphere are going to love this. First off this is a quad core Atom Z3735F SoC, 64GB SSD, 2GB RAM, and which comes with the mini to full size HDMI and USB to micro USB charging cables you will need, as well as the 5 volt 2 Amp charger. The charger uses any USB to miocrI am on it now, and running on battery after charging while doing all the 159 Windows updates that took the better part of the day. I now have 75mbps Cable Internet so trust me you do want to be where you can spend time. This little gem cost me 99 dollars with free shipping directly from China which took a month. It was worth the wait. Once I got it it took me about a half hour to figure it out with trial and error as the quick start guide was all in Chinese. Don't worry if anyone here tries one I can walk you through resetting the region and country so all the menus and apps are in English and just like a computer you bought here. The kick is that it has a switch button on the windows task bar, and on the click down menu in Android. Now I have to say that I have been Windows phone and tablets for three years now, and I had to do some real searching just to find out how to get the shut down /switch OS back to Windows buttons. Here is the website with the pics and description: http://www.iandroidtvbox.com/voyo-mini-pc-dual-boot-tv-box-white.html Once I had the basics done it turns out to be a fast little computer. I hooked the HDMI out to my HDMI in on my desktop and used the onscreen touch keyboard with a wired mouse to get the drivers I needed for the Logitech K-400 wireless keyboard. I just needed the unifying receiver download to use it and pair them even though it is not Bluetooth but a regular 2.4 computer keyboard and touchpad device. Here is the website for it and pics: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/wireless-touch-keyboard-k400r I am downloading more updates as I type this. I installed a 32GB SDXC card with 20GB of music on it and am listening to it while the updates download and I am on Windows explorer with three screens open. I can't heartily recommend these yet as it did unexpectedly shut down twice over the past 12 hours of continuous updating and use, both plugged in, and on battery. It may have been something I did that caused the shut downs to sleep mode, but I need it to burn in and test for far longer than one day. This is going on the new TV we are getting this coming Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I sold the bedroom 40" LCD, and the Living room 60" 1080p Plasma Panasonic top model so now have a budget of $1000.00 cash in fist and can add another $500 for a new UHD 4k OLED or LEDF Smart TV. In the meantime we are watching the 40" LED that we bought for the RV last spring, and used while we lived in it fulltime for two and a half months. So we are playing with the new format PC that is totally beyond anything we've owned in this size, and many aren't as snappy for streaming as this one in any size. For techies a delight. Easy learn for the non techies as long as they can change date and region settings on an 8.1 system. However for the folks with a C-note to spare that wants to play with a new approach it is still worth it. They have a one year warranty on it, and I like the company. Cheap prices not products, free shipping, direct from China, patience required. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
