User Review

  • Pros: looks nice
  • Cons: isn't compatible with latest WiDi. Tried using it with my new laptop which does support WiDi. I could see the device, but each time I attempted to connect, it wouldn't connect, then would disappear. after hours of reading online, still have not been able to get it to work.

Obsolete device, see PTV3000 instead.

  • 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.

720p only no 1080 support

Anonymous, Newegg
1 March 2014
  • Summary: It does not connect to your wireless network. It is a direct device-to-device connection from your (laptop) to the box. Yes, you do remain connected to your wifi network while using the wireless display.
  • Pros: Intel Wireless display is great. It requires almost no setup and is up and running in seconds. Simply turn it on, and it displays a pin number on the TV, type the pin number into the laptop and you're done. Guests can easily connect without any complicated re-configuration.
  • Cons: Failed to check specs before I ordered. This model only does 720p it does not do 1920x1080. It requires a computer with an Intel wifi card that specifically supports Intel WiDi. Also requires Intel's wireless display software to work... Not sure if it can work in linux.. haven't checked.

Laptop won't connect

Jonathan B., Newegg
6 January 2014
  • Summary: Wouldn't it be nice if netgear hadn't taken down the compatibility list on their website when the ptv3000 came out? Now I paid good money for useless hardware which "should" work, but doesn't.
  • Pros: Cheap after sale and rebate. Powers on and does send a HDMI signal to the monitor.
  • Cons: Doesn't actually work. Laptop (yoga 2 pro; win 8.1) can't find it.

Useless After Upgrade to WIndows 8/8.1

SysEngPAF, Amazon

  • 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.

Unreliable

Joseph B., Newegg
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I upgraded the firmware as recommended. I have three of these. The first one I purchased two years ago and the other two more recently from NewEgg. The latter two have 1080p resolution so I thought they may be better than the older 720p version. No such luck.
  • Pros: Permits convenient remote wireless display (WiDi) on compatible laptops that contain the required Intel WiDi chipsets.
  • Cons: Freezes display randomly or disconnects during movie playback.

Happily surprised

Jason H., Newegg
27 November 2013
  • Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by this unit. I'd read of some users having connectivity issues but when I found it on a special deal I couldn't pass it up. it was easy to connect to my tv, easy to set up with the Intel software (even updated the firmware for me), and has worked perfectly so far.
  • Pros: Attractive design, easy setup, works exactly as expected. Beautiful picture with no issues
  • Cons: None so far
