NZXT already has a rock solid reputation with the PC gaming community. They’ve created some of the best gaming chassis on the market, such as their stunning H440, they’ve created some of the best coolers, such as the X61 and their CAM software is great for keeping your system running smoothly. However, they’re now pushing further into the world of PC gaming with the release of the DOKO. The DOKO is the latest device to follow the game streaming trend, with Steam and other gaming platforms such as the Nvidia Shield allowing you to stream games from your PC to your big screen TV, NZXT think they can compete in this market too.

The DOKO simply connects to your network and software will stream your PC game to the DOKO, which connects to another display, such as the TV in your living room. This means that you can break away from your desk and enjoy your games, or any other media, on the big screen, without the need for a second gaming PC, or HTPC style system. What we have here then is essentially a remote desktop client, but it has a few extra features on board that certainly help it stand out from the crowd.

In the box, you’ll find the DOKO unit its self, as well as a high-quality RJ45 cable and the power cable. Unfortunately for myself the plug is a US plug, but the unit will be getting a UK/EU release in March this year; so for now I’ll have to use a US to UK adaptor to be able to use the device.

The unit is quite small, so there should be no issues in finding a comfortable home for it under your TV. This is great for people like me, who already have four consoles, a cable box and an AV receiver crammed under the TV as I could easily tuck this in between other devices.

Around the front of the device, you’ll find four USB ports, which are perfect for connecting a keyboard, mouse, control pads, headsets or any other USB device you may need. There’s also a large power button, giving you the option to power off the device with ease when not in use.

Around the back, you will find a power jack, a single HDMI, a 3.5mm audio jack and the RJ45 network port.

It’s a pretty simple looking unit overall, but NZXT have given it a funky style thanks to some smooth rounded edges on one side.

While the other side has a slight overhanging panel. It’s not much in terms of design, but it’s enough to keep this simple box from looking boring.

On the base of the DOKO, you’ll find four small rubber feet; just enough to keep it from sliding around on your surface of choice. Also, looking at the design, there are no air vents, as the device is passive cooled and runs completely silent.
