Peter, Bristol IT Professional

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Is very portable and can be charged from just about any USB port.
Streams kids videos with ease after you get used to interface.
Plugs into headrest DVD players in car and streams to them as well.
Bad points:
Android interface is a bit clunky but works after you get used to it.
No wireless connectivity from Windows so you need to plug it in which seems to turn off wireless (unless there's a setting I haven't found!!!).

Colin, Casual computer user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Have connected three tablets, 2x Nexus 7s and IPad mini and a iphone 5 steaming different avi files with no issues. Great for the kids on long trips in the car. Have got their entire DVD collection on the device 40+ films and still plenty of room for mine.
Bad points:
Takes a while to charge from pc usb port, also disappointed it didn't come with an external charger.

Guy, Marlborough IT Professional

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Simple to use.
Tested streaming on 6 IOS devices concurrently, each running a separate film and it worked perfectly.
It's small and very light.
Ideal for two kids in the back of the car on a long journey to watch their favourite films on their iPads.
Bad points:
Takes a while for the Wifi to be seen
If whilst streaming you fast forward, it regularly only plays for a second or so and stops, and if you hit play it will only run for another second - so just let it play from the start!
