User Review

Brian L., Newegg
28 November 2014
  • 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.

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.

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
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.

  • 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.

Great until the next Intel update to WiDi

Kisa, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • 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.

Does not work as advertised

Raed M., Newegg
18 July 2013
  • Pros: None
  • 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.

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.

More Garbage from Netgear

James W., Newegg
24 May 2013
  • 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...
