Fails at the most basic task

Peter G., Amazon

  • Summary: Short version: Get something else! It does not do well what it is supposed to do. Long Version: I bought the Q180 as a HTPC and was supper excited about the form and size of it. Unfortunately it fails at its most basic purpose: video streaming.

Fails at its advertised purpose

  • Summary: I bought the Q180 as a HTPC and was supper excited about the form and size of it. Unfortunately it fails at its most basic purpose: video streaming. Whether it is from the web or from the HDD/memory stick, video streaming is choppy, cuts off, and is off from the sound track.

Doesn't work as a HTPC - can't watch Hulu in full screen mode.

  • Summary: It seems to me that the main use of a computer with this form factor is to use as a HTPC (home theater PC). That's why I bought it, anyway. After hooking it up to my TV, I tested it with the three main websites I watch regularly, YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu.com.

  • Summary: This product is made in China. Everything I have bough from China is pretty unreliable and poorly made. I will gladly pay an extra hundred for something that is at least assembled in the USA.

Wasted my life waiting for this thing...

  • Summary: This little PC is SO SLOW. It cannot even open Itunes in less than 20 minutes. I have spent hours getting it to sync with my phone. It is a massive waste of money. Buy something with a faster processor.
