Why is it that when I do a speed test on my android galaxy 3 I get a download speed of about 35 mbs.... but when I do the same speed test on my android equiso stick I get a download speed of about 8 mbs? It's the same app, one run on my droid phone and the other on your equiso stick.... both the same distance from the router, but your device gets only 25% of the internet speed. How come?

Craptastic antenna coupled with a less than optimal WiFi chipset.
fair to say this piece of equipment is kind of crappy and that I should not be recommending to my clients then?
Yes

Yeah, don't pick one up or have others buy it. If you already have one they can be useful. We have one of ours set up with some calendar and security/weather widgets on an old monitor. Net gets about 8mb from our 100 mbps connection.
Many times you might not see original speed in some speed test apps as many many apps doesn't show proper speed.
