SECOND EDIT: Do NOT install the Windows 10 update with an SD card on board. The update will freeze at 44%!
EDIT: The new FUNCTIONAL drivers are located at the Intel Drivers & Software page. Download everything on that page and presto! This product is an incredible value for the money. Although it may not be for people who aren't somewhat tech savvy as the drivers need to be manually discovered online and then manually downloaded and installed. Incidentally I'm using a Mitsubishi 65" DLP TV, and a Fintie Bluetooth Keyboard (Touch X1 Series) which is also working pretty well from within approx. 10'.
This product has a glaring problem. For something that is meant to be portable and plugged into monitors on the fly, there is no way to adjust the overscan ratio. There is an option within the Intel Graphics setting to adjust it, however there are no options under the setting but the one that doesn't work for me. This should be a slider switch! It's like they just stopped development on it. It's a tough life living with a "Start" button hidden off the screen... Even the fireTVstick ($40) provides a way to adjust overscan (as does my PS4). This things badly needs a software update to address this issue. PRONTO! Sadly, if not for this problem, I think that the Compute Stick would be a decent PC for word processing, casual web browsing, and iTunes.
Initial setup was very easy. I added a SanDisk 64gb MicroSD card as well, and I am glad I did because it needed that external storage to complete a Windows update.
I was excited about the first generation Compute Stick and while I kept it a while as a hobby device, it just wasn't ready for prime time. The wireless was horrendous and the one USB port crippled the stick's usability. This new stick, however, is much better and feels like an actual finished product. While the Atom processor in the Compute Stick is still pretty slow and the device is certainly no speed demon, it works for my needs and the wireless is much, much better.
For Xbox One streaming, I have my Xbox One console hardwired into my Netgear AC3200 router, and it works very well from one floor away. There are some very minor occasional hiccups, but I chalk that up more to the Windows 10 Xbox app than the Compute Stick, and they don't distract from the overall experience. Before the Compute Stick, I used a Broadwell i5 Intel NUC with an Intel AC 7260 wireless card for this purpose. This Computer Stick, however, actually streams better and does so with a much smaller footprint.
For my rather particular needs, this Intel Compute Stick works great. I am glad I didn't wait and spend more for the Core M version because I just don't need that kind of power. The level to which I recommend the Compute Stick depends on what you are looking to do with it. For the particular needs that I had, it does work great. If you are looking for a desktop replacement or to do some serious computing / native gaming, it's just not built for that.
