-Very competitive price.
-Pretty easy to set up (if you've got the right equipment to complement it).
-It comes rooted (that's right, a device that you can actually own).
-You can plug standard USB keyboard and mouse into this.
-Google Play Store access (I'm pretty sure they have to pay google for access to this).
Those are some serious pros, in my opinion. The price alone should make this worth buying for a lot of people. But for me, the cons are pretty substantial:
-It defaults to 720p at (I think) 60hz. This only worked on ONE of the displays I tried it on. Changing the display (so that I can actually use it) only lasts as long as the device is plugged in. If the device crashes (something it does often), the only way to reset it is to unplug and replug.
-Video streaming on YouTube and Netflix was extremely slow (I read somewhere that this might be because the antenna is just too insulated and the device is not getting a strong enough signal; a problem that can be solved with a little tweaking of the case).
-It crashed on me at least five times in an hour and a half.
-The device feels slow, all around, both doing online and offline activities. Even seemingly simple offline activities!
-It gets hot! People have said that it'll crash on them when it gets too hot.
-The male to female HDMI cable they give you is a bit frustrating.Read more ›
The provided HDMI cable is not shielded therefore causes interference and you will never get a good wifi connection! I plugged it directly into my tv without the HDMI cable and bam netflix streaming works!
It is a bit slow for browsing and installing apps but hey it works! Took me a while to figure out that the HDMI wire was causing interference! They really should be selling these with shielded HDMI cables or no HDMI cable at all!
The bad: Very slow when you first apply power or switching apps! I usually plug it in and let it download or finish doing whatever it was doing before using it.
The ugly: Does a factory-reset about once a week or so and deletes everything you setup ...I'm getting tired of reloading all my favorite apps over and over again!
*** Update (20 Apr 2013)
After the last factory reset, my little dongle finally gave up and stop working. Power light and mouse comes on but no video. Don't waste your money... try something else!
This little powerhouse is a good compromise between the original MK802 which has half the RAM and runs hotter, and the more expensive dual-core MK802III and IIIs. The MK802II's factory firmware works fairly well with Google Play, and there is a newer 2012.12.08 firmware that works even better.
A word about Wi-Fi reception: adequate. My MK802II is linked to an 802.11n router centrally located in my home. The MK802II gets 3-4 bars of signal on the first floor through one sheetrock wall, and 1-2 bars in the far corner of my basement through hardwood floors and a sheetrock wall. The MK802II's tiny Wi-Fi chip antenna is right next to the blue power LED, so you'll get the best reception if you face the back of the MK802II toward your router antenna.
One novelty I discovered after purchasing the unit is Rikomagic's Remote Client app for the MK802II. Rikomagic has an app on Google Play that will let any Android device act as a remote display and control a MK802II. Unfortunately I must deduct a star here due to extremely poor documentation. It was only through much research that I found out how to set up the remote client.Read more ›
