Obsolete device, see PTV3000 instead.

john guthrie, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: This is an obsolete device and costs more than the HD PTV 3000 also sold by Amazon. Don't but it, buy the 3000 if you need one.

It's great...........WHEN it works

Cajun "CajunRotor", Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: The Netgear box itself works fine WHEN the Intel WIDI software doesn't screw things up! Everything worked fine right out of the box, but only for about 2 months. I suddenly was unable to even find the adapter when scanning for it from the same laptop on which everything had worked fine previously. And No, I had not made any changes to the laptop during that time since I was cruising aboard my boat in a very remote area with no internet access.

Useless After Upgrade to WIndows 8/8.1

SysEngPAF, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I have a Netgear PTV2000 which worked well with Windows 7. I upgraded to Windows 8 and can no longer use the device. I tried many different ways to get it to work no luck. I have since upgraded to Windows 8.1 and have repeatedly tried to connect to the PTV2000 without success. Is there anything you can recommend to solve my problem?

  • Summary: I design custom PC's for high end users and I just wanted to send video from my laptop to my smart tv without a cable. This thing is a nightmare even for a specialist! Once you manage to get connected, your problems are NOT over. Every time you reconnect prepare to pull your hair out. This a great example of a nice piece of hardware that uses inferior firmware. Avoid, avoid, avoid!!!

worst piece of electronic equipment purchased

Lowell, Amazon
9 June 2013
  • Summary: This piece of equipment skips, freezes, requires numerous restarts of the computer you are streaming from and is an absolute disappointment. I have reinstalled at least 4 times hoping to solve the problems without success. I've searched the Netgear support pages and the internet in general for some sort of fix and found nothing that worked. I strongly suggest that another product would be a a better value in time and money.

Piece of junk

Unavailable, Amazon
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Constantly disconnects Doesn't work with Miracast (I have the Google Nexus 4 smartphone) It tries to connect but fails. When I stream pandora the sound glitches Just really glitchy and overpriced. Get something else. ***UPDATE*** Almost a year later, even after multiple driver updates and software updates, this piece of crap still doesn't work. Also, netgear customer support is completely crap as well.

Connection failure after connection failure

Robert, Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I have a brand new 2013 intel laptop. I installed all the newest drivers and software repeatedly. And it worked! One time. And failed to connect every time afterwards. So I know the technology is capable but when everything is right on my end and it fails to work all the same, it is the most frustrating feeling in world.

Requires FW update to support Win8

Thaine, Amazon
14 February 2013
  • Summary: Win8 requires a 8 digit WPS pin and this product ships with a win7 compatible 4 digit pin. To update, you need to connect with a win7 machine running the latest Intel Wireless Display SW Rev 3.5.41 or later to get the FW update and after the adapter has received that update it will connect to win8 machines. Most people don't have multiple laptops laying around but there isn't an easier way with this rev of the adapter.
