The PINWHEEL Q7 is a decent little media box, it comes with Kodi pre-installed, although it wasn’t the latest version (16 at the time of review). As well as the Google Play store it comes with the Aptoid app store (not one I’m familiar with) and you could always install the Amazon app store if you wanted to.
Media playback was fine, all the streaming services ran well.
Gameplay was OK, with a USB port you can add a game controller and use this as a mini console, although it doesn’t run games as smooth as other Android consoles I’ve tried they were still very playable on the Q7.
Annoyingly it comes with a micro HDMI port rather than full HDMI port. It does come with a micro to full HDMI cable, but I’d prefer this to just have the standard ports.
The USB port also allows this to be used as a little workstation, it has an office package pre-installed that allows you to edit Word etc files.
The interface is basic, no attempt has been made to make this TV friendly, and so the included remote is only really of use for things like Kodi, you’re better off investing in a keyboard/mouse combination or an air mouse.
Once you get use to the menu this performs well in everything I’ve thrown at it so far.
