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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this device about a year ago, and then yesterday, it stopped connecting to the television, telling me that it couldn't establish a network connection. Curious, since it doesn't require a connection through the router to work, it is an Intel WiDi device.
Cons: Disconnects every few minutes. Very slow. Poor picture quality and would NOT let you stream any online content such as Hulu, rendering the whole thing useless. I threw this thing in the garbage and bought a roku player ($50) which works fine. What a waste of money and time.
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.
Pros: Worked for about 3 days and never worked again.
Cons: After 3 days the device died. Was on with Netgear for 87 minutes. Installed and re-installed the Intel software (yes they use Intel's software and not their own) three times. Could not get the Intel software working. They wanted me to re-order a new one from Newegg. How would a new one work if th...
