Finally arrived on Friday after a LONG delay ........

Unit works very well. Nice and snappy. The ipazzport controller I bought with it is useless though...... instead I'm using a standard wireless keyboard and mouse combo and it works brilliantly.

I was worried that android without touchscreen wouldn't be intuitive but it works really well ..... and yes I've even tried angry birds

Plugged it into my new Samsung TV and power drawn fine from the USB. Google play already installed as is flash. Managed to get Netflix working fine (you need an older version than is in the market).

Only hitch I've found so far is with my daughters TV. Plugged it into the HDMI and it seems to lose an inch or so all round the screen. There are options to change the resolution etc and also the over scan but I just haven't found the right setting. Note that her TV is an old and cheap technika unit.....

So far very impressed.

Thanks for the review.

I have that same problem plugging a PC into my old Samsung LCD TV via HDMI. Never did find a way around it.

Managed to find the right resolution and 'overscan' point and now she is a happy young lady as she can see the WHOLE of her facebook page

so much tech yet its facebook that it gets used for mostly ... kids, eh

As per previous comments - buy a cheap wireless keyboard and mouse and its a great piece of kit for turning an old TV into a smart one !
