Summary: Owning this product for over a year and, overall, its doing a good job. My laptop is Lenovo Thinkpad T510 and i mainly use it as a second screen. Only problem i have faced is that sometimes the sound echoes. It goes away when i cover the usb transmitter with my palm. I don't use it to view high definition content, but tried it out to test it. I played Skyfall from Netflix. The able to get 7.1 audio but the video was a little choppy sometimes.
Summary: Operation has been reliable once a line-of-sight link was found that wasn't too ugly. Have yet to find an aspect ratio that fits my TV. All options are no larger than computer monitor (15") or over flows the TV such that an outer "frame" is outside the TV and lost. Some difficulty with Netflix. Image is fine, but sound doesn't link consistently. All-in-all I'd still recommend this Push Adapter due to ease of installation.
Summary: I purchased this to watch netflix / Hulu / you tube. I have a 42 inch 720p Samsung TV and a Dell 2.1 ghz core2duo with 2 gigs of RAM laptop. My wireless router is an ATT 2wire from 2011. The internet speed of my DSL is 11.5Mbps. Setup was pretty easy, but took some time. I have had this only for a few days. The picture is acceptable. The picture is smoother than internet through the wireless Wii, but not as good as the wired blu-ray player.
Summary: Purchased this unit to put Power Point on a large screen. Worked as advertised with no noticable degredation of graphics. Was easy to set up and use. However, software conflicted with a previously-install Warpia unit - so had to remove the Warpia software for that wireless unit. After that, all worked OK. Perhaps a little pricey. Shop around.
Summary: This unit worked fine once I moved it to within 10' of my pc.I tried it at 20'(due to the tv being in another room) and it had difficulty staying connected. I eventually had to get creative with a longer HDMI cable to get the transmitter and receiver closer together. A quirk of the software or my pc, I'm not sure which but I often have to restart my media player to get the sound to work.
