Works right out of the box, and is much easier to extract the pcaps than with a pwnagotchi. With a pwnagotchi having to ssh into it means if you don't unmount it properly you lose all of your files (if not backed up) and have to reflash it. Serious pain in the ass. With the purple hash monster you just throw the sd card in and can get to the pcaps in windows or linux. Super easy. I believe this also gets 5G wifi network handshakes whereas the pwnagotchi doesn't unless you upgrade and modify it yourself with a better wifi antenna. The one drawback to this device is that it definitely gets way fewer pcaps than the pwnagotchi in my experience. Maybe I just haven't used it enough and trained it enough. The seller is excellent, ships out super fast and is very responsive and helpful.

Just turns on and has a graph. Doesn't capture anything
It didn't capture any handshake pcap file for me. I have images and I even made a video as clear evidence so the seller and Tindie could see what was happening. The seller still refused to refund my money and would rather lie and say I bought it to use 1 time and send it back, which makes absolutely no sense. I originally was going to buy a pwnagotchi because it sounded cool, and I came across this description about a color screen version of the pwnagotchi. If I wanted to steal a wifi password for 1 time use, you can easily use a free script online, or just buy a dstike deauth watch or usb stick for a lot less. The seller refuses to refund what is more than obvious and gave every excuse in the book to try and belittle me. Before he updated the description, I thought he had designed it himself. You can actually buy a blank version from Amazon. Link below https://www.amazon.com/M5Stack-FIRE-IoT-Development-PSRAM/dp/B08RJ8M2K1/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=m5stack+fire&qid=1617100835&sr=8-3
UPDATE to his reply: First off, I bought this for my personal network and I made that clear from the start in my first email to him about it before the review. He obviously enjoys selling products to lie and try and get people in trouble. (Cough: "I smell a rat") Just like he claimed to do much of the product development before he updated the details, which was originally more intriguing to me. Second, It's my fault for assuming the seller coded a product that did the channel surfing itself to find your personal network, which it doesn't. Instead, it automatically surfs every network nearby and you can't pick. Making him knowingly selling an illegal product. Another thing, since the product has an esp32, I assumed he actually knew how to utilize its full potential, using machine learning. Instead, you need to manually hit the buttons on the right. Anyways if you were trying to target your own network, good luck, the manual buttons don't work for that. One last thing to all buyers, if you decide to buy this, be careful he isn't appending malicious code to the pcap files.

As you can see from the above review this user is irrational and im here to tell you unfortunately also technically incompetent. He emails me 2x on a sunday and doesnt even give me 24hrs to get back to him before emailing Tindie support. (who just pointed him back to me) :)
He bought a product and cant figure out how to use it. Admits to trying to hack someone elses wifi (very illegal buddy) and then just attempts to insult me over and over and demand a refund.
He acts likes he is pulling the cover off some secret. There are much better links to blank units and the source code in my actual store listing. Godspeed to you sir.
Cannot access the handshakes because of my low IQ. They didn't need to be so hard to get into. But it's very well-made. When I could get into parts of it I loved it, but I can't into it at all anymore, was never able to access the handshakes, and am beyond disappointed. "There is no refund for incompetency." Thank you so much. Kick a man when he's down. Merry X-mas to me. This was my "dream device" but I obviously am under-qualified to access it and learn from using it as I had hoped.
Exactly what I was looking for, a complete, ready-to-rumble Pwnagotchi unit. Board, display, battery all work perfectly and assembled like it came from a factory. Came complete with a 3D printed protective case and some basic instructions to get you started. If you don't want to assemble and solder, this is the deal. Would buy from again.
First the guy making these is just awesome the Pwnagotchi comes turn key ready to pwn! even comes with paperwork for instructions on how to ssh into him and change settings and if you get snagged with a can't figure it out moment he will help you. You really can't ask for better customer service then what this guy gives plus the time he takes to make these and set them up. The Pwnagotchi is just so much fun to learn about Wi-Fi handshakes and .pcap files you can analyze through Wire shark and what is extra cool its like the Pwnagotchi will develop its own personality while you are walking around with him he gets happy,sad and takes naps when he is bored LOL Pocket size so you can take him personally anywhere! Oh even a 3D printed case! But for real Amazing product and Amazing customer service hands down.
