    Probably output the same as a smart phone or tablet.

    A bit glitchy, if you read the comments. If it runs anything like my new Droid Maxx, you will be disappointed. 12 hours to run a single FA@H WU!!

    I just dumped the whole thing. It would heat up the phone at night, while plugged in, and then quit processing the WU!! I had 4 days to run one 12 hour job and could not manage to get it finished in time!!

    Depending on how much cash you have, I'm sure there are much better options.

    I do not think it is practical to run WCG/F@H on devices like this (this goofy little box, smartphones, tablets etc). They're not designed to handle this sort of thing.
