Intel Compute Stick works OK, but not well at all in some congested wireless environments due to the internal antenna and possibly other issues.
The Quantum Access brand stick works flawlessly so far. It has some features that are helpful, such as an extra microusb port, and most importantly, an external antenna. Also, it does not have or need the internal fan. Solid piece of gear. Cost is the same as Intel Compute stick. I’ve had one running for three months virtually non-stop except for Windows update reboots.
Running Windows 10 Pro on them. Tip - Go to the Quantum Suppliers website and get the Win 10 recovery files and drivers
Deleting the original recovery partition frees up aboput 7 GB of space, and if you are concerned about recovery, just keep an image handy on a USB stick, using UEFI GPT with FAT32 filesystem.
