Smart TVs running Android or proprietary operating systems may be great for entertainment, but they’re still very far in terms of versatility and productivity from fully fledged computers. Azulle Access PC Stick solves that by running Windows 8.1 on a very capable hardware configuration, all in a package that fits in your pocket.
In the past few years the world has seen hardware manufacturers struggling to miniaturize everything. As a matter of fact, the idea of using a Windows PC that’s slightly larger than an USB flash drive was inconceivable a decade ago. Now, the market is flooded with such sticks, and while most of them are running Google’s Android OS, it is Windows 10 and PC sticks such as Azulle’s Quantum Access & Logitech® Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus bundle that offer a complete experience.
Measuring 4.33 x 1.53 x 0.47 inches (or 11 x 3.88 x 1.2 cm), Azulle’s Access PC Stick fits very comfortably in the palm of your hand. More important than its dimensions, however, are the technical specs, and this mini PC certainly doesn’t disappoint in that department.
Quantum Access is powered by an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core CPU clocked at 1.33 Ghz, along with 2GB of DDR3L RAM and 32GB of storage, which can be expanded further by adding a microSD card. On the software side of things, the stick runs a full version of Windows 10, which as we all know.
The Access PC Stick relies on an HDMI connector to turn your telly not only in a smart TV, but even in a fully fledged computer. Besides that, it includes a full USB 2.0 port and a micro USB one for OTG connectivity. As far as wireless connectivity is concerned, the Quantum Access sports not only Bluetooth 4.0, but also Wi-Fi b/g/n. Using the former, or the wired USB connection, the PC stick enables you to use both wired and wireless USB mice and keyboards.
Azulle took that into consideration, and bundled a Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus with the HDMI stick, so you don’t have to go shopping for peripherals after buying the mini PC. From experience, I can attest that using a TV box or HDMI stick just with the provided remote control is very frustrating and takes a lot of time, so a wireless keyboard that includes a touchpad could work wonders, especially since this one has a 33 feet range.
The Quantum Access PC Stick & Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus is a perfect example of synergy, a whole that’s greater than the simple sum of its parts, not to mention that by getting them together, you can also save some money. The Windows UI is a lot easier to navigate using a fully fledged keyboard such as the Logitech K400 Plus, while the keyboard and touchpad combo is a lot more convenient than having separate peripherals. It doesn’t really matter if you’re running home theater software such as Kodi or office suites, the Logitech K400 Plus keyboard will save you a lot of time. On top of that, if you’re used with touch typing on regular, desktop keyboards, then you should have no problem using the Logitech K400 Plus. The slim, compact design, along with the wireless operation, and a battery life of up to 18 months make this keyboard the perfect companion for Azulle’s Quantum Access PC stick. Your media interactions are enhanced with comfortable keys, easy-access volume controls, and an arrow-key layout that simplifies navigation. A second left-click button permits two-hand navigation and selection. Shortcuts simplify control. Hot keys work right from the box—no configuration is required. Enjoy your navigation on your PC stick connected to the TV the way you like it – from the comfort of your couch
Despite its small dimensions, Quantum Access proves to be a very versatile PC for the entire family. It could be used by kids in the living room for playing games or doing their homework, or by grown-ups in the bedroom for streaming music and surfing the Web. Needless to say, Quantum Access could provide endless nights of watching movies for all of them. But all of these can also be achieved with an Android stick, so what does Azulle’s product bring to the table? The answer is quite simple: the versatility of Microsoft’s operating system. Windows 8.1 can be used for Office apps that are far superior to the ones available on Android. On top of that, multitasking is at home with this OS. With the right software, Quantum Access is a productivity beast, at the office and at home.
Azulle sells the Quantum Access PC stick and Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus bundle on Amazon for $159.99, which is more than decent, considering the potential of this mini computer. Separately, the Access HDMI stick is $129.99, and the Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus costs $39.99, so if you’re interested in revolutionized entertainment and increased productivity, getting the bundle is definitely the way to go.
