Summary: Simple to install, just followed the instructions and everything worked great. I tried with other pc's at the office and I must say that all worked, although video at HD gets hard to play for old pcs.
Check ur speeds- MINE WORKS!! USB to TV - streaming vid on TV & email stuff on laptop at the same time
19 October 2012
Summary: Hooking my laptop to my TV with a 15-pin cable was not compatible, too much flashing b/c of mismatched refresh screen rates, so I was glad to see something that worked without having a HDMI connector on my computer. I'm still just back in the USB port age. Warned by somebody else's review, I checked my computer speed to see if this would be compatible to play decent streaming video and give it a try.
Summary: Seemed like just the thing to show the information on the PC screen on the much larger plasma across the room. It did just that with the mirror function. No delay and looks great. Software loaded fine. Connection to TV was simple. All work as advertised. Need to be a bit patient the first time the USB dongle is plugged in as it takes several minutes to gather and load all of the required drivers.
Summary: This item is exactly as described. The driver software install took approximately 15 mins. The total set up time took 20 mins. The connection and display to the tv was immediate after the pc usb transmitter connected to the base. The audio played from my pc iTunes played beautifully through the soundbar connected to my tv. My HP is a few years old and is not WiDi enabled so this solution is perfect for me.
Summary: I had a great experience with this product. Out of the box the set-up was straightforward and connection was instant with no glitches or loss of video quality from 10ft away connected to an internet-enabled 42" 1080P Vizio TV. I have a 10" screen on my Windows 7 OS laptop so connecting to my TV for email and internet browsing was great. This has also come in useful for video chat and having the family all look at one giant screen versus being huddle around a tiny screen.
