    Great shame about the stuttering and lack of controller support. It would have made an interesting comparison with Steam's in-home-streaming (IHS) feature, too. I guess the current state of its performance rather makes such a comparison pointless at this point. Note that IHS also drops audio to stereo, and reduces video quality, although it is configurable and perhaps more dynamic.

    Steam in home streaming is excellent and will run off the most basic of x86 devices in Windows/OSX/Linux. Its worth also mentioning limelight, which is Nvidia GPU specific, but will run on a Raspberry pi or an old phone/tablet.

    If you want to game, you are better off with one of these options. If you want to use your computer for a smooth general experience, you are better off with an RDP type protocol.

    It seems that this is nothing but a trial product that can only serve a light load daily work, not high quality video playing, not even gaming.

    Controller support has been revisited in the article since running Steam/Origin/Uplay in adminstrator mode, a fix provided to us by NZXT, allows controllers to be used with the doko without any issues

    Looks ok however I'd rather wait for the steam link at half the price ($49.99). Bet its better supported as well I would imagine.

    The steam link can also handle 1080p at 60fps compared to the Doku's 30fps at 1080p and supports ac wifi all for half the price.

    Unless it super cheap I'm not sure why I would want another device under the TV. Then again neither the Forge or Shield are out yet.

    For me: Android TV + Kodo + PC Streaming is a much more attractive proposition.

    For that price might as well get an actual PC or tablet, the Meegopad T1, basic Brix or Acer Revo is barely more money but a whole lot more functional. Seems very over priced for what it delivers.
