2 peice solution

James E., Newegg
18 September 2013
  • Summary: I was checking the reviews and I wanted to clarify something for people. WiDi is a 2 part solution in your laptop. 1) is the intel chip 2) is a special Broadcom wifi chip. Just because you have i5 or i7 doesn't mean anything. If your laptop came with widi software you have it. If not its doubtful. There is some lag to the tech as people have said. the 1000 version is 720p the 2000 version is 1080.
  • Pros: widi price
  • Cons: older tech

Core i5 owners--READ--

Box's A., Newegg
28 August 2013
  • Summary: I initially thought it would be useful and it still may be at some point. Now that I have it, and got it working it feels more like a novelty. The slight delay form PC to monitor was very disappointing but don't panic, little adjustments to the app and graphics smooth it out nicely. I should add, My Intel i5 is a 2nd gen, 3 and 4 gen owners may have better luck out of the box HOWEVER, from what I read, ALL i5 need a different app/software.
  • Pros: Price was right (counting the rebate), Used up all that spare time I had just lying around.
  • Cons: It is a retired (or soon to be) model as I discovered while troubleshooting. The new model appears to address the difficulties I encountered. Firmware needs update out of box, must establish wireless connection to update firmware, cannot establish connection without firmware... brought back memories of my first Basic program loop. IF THEN GOTO So, I restored the laptop back to an earlier version of Intel Wireless Display (NOT WiDi its too new) and that only worked aft...

Check Netgear's Website First for Compatability!

Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: You need to check Netgear's website under PUSH2TV for compatibility with your computer before buying this product. Look under "Supported Laptops", choose which country and see if your laptop is listed. If it's not, it probably won't work. I have a brand new HP Pavilion dv7-6143cl 17" laptop with a 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8 gigs of ram and it came equipped with Intel WiDi 2.0 and the Intel "My WiFi Technology" (all necessary for WiDi to work) but the...

Not For Games

NYBackus, Amazon
10 August 2011
  • Summary: My wife and I like to occasionally play games of find the hidden object, etc. And crowding around a laptop screen isn't ideal, so I thought this item would allow us to send the game to our TV screen. Not so. For whatever reasons (the game changes the resolution setting?) Works otherwise as advertised but a disappointment to us.
