Veebeam HD Review

  • Conclusion: Based as it is upon our home computer, the Veebeam HD system does bring--along with its strong functionality and performance--a fair measure of PC/Mac idiosyncrasies, which in turn demands that the user possess a certain grasp of IT-type problem-solving. But it does what it purports to do in a mostly-friendly fashion, unlocking a host of entertainment possibilities, swiftly and affordably.
  • Pros: Thrillingly quick, foolproof setup, Surprising versatility and performance, Remarkable functionality (and cool factor) for a modest investment, Thrillingly quick, foolproof setup, Surprising versatility and performance, Remarkable functionality (and cool factor) for a modest investment
  • Cons: A remote control of its own would be useful (albeit a complicated feat no doubt), Wireless connectivity less powerful than expected, Some recurring video glitches

  • Conclusion: It's not ideal for games and Web browsing, but the Veebeam HD is a simple way to stream movies and Web media services like Hulu and YouTube wirelessly to your HDTV.
  • Pros: Displays whatever's on your computer display on your HDTV. Plays high-definition video with sound over HDMI. Simple to set up.
  • Cons: Lag is too great for gaming or Web browsing.

  • Summary: New HDTVs with the capability to stream selected Internet content are becoming standard. Many of us that purchased HDTVs in the past aren't so fortunate to have this capability. Should we have to buy a new HDTV to enjoy the full 1080p HD glory of streaming Internet content? Veebeam doesn't think so.

Everything USB

  • Summary: While the Veebeam HD video streamer does indeed allow you to wirelessly stream HD media to your TV, most consumers will be better served with a dedicated media appliance.

  • Cons: Line of sight wireless capabilities only, Software does not include any codecs, Software does not support alternate audio streams, Software and manual are not included in the box and need to be downloaded, Price, USB Antenna is overly wide and will block adjacent ports

Veebeam HD review

homecinemachoice.com

  • Excerpt: Unusually, the Veebeam HD wirelessly sends whatever is on your PC (or Mac) desktop to a distinctively sculpted black box, which is, in turn, connected to your TV. The device sports a composite AV output for your set and an HDMI socket. There’s also an optical digital audio output, which will give better quality PC audio (especially from music) if fed into your AVR. Your computer must run Windows 7, the Vista turkey that preceded it, or Mac OS 10.5/6.

  • Excerpt: Although a few receivers are endowed with a degree of online functionality, it tends to be restricted. Freesat HD boxes may offer BBC iPlayer, but ITV Player and 4oD are currently not catered for. Even the best enthusiast boxes (and TVs) have added bonuses like YouTube but ultimately limit your choice with 'walled-gardens'.

  • Summary: This is a triangular shaped box and a wireless USB dongle that lets you show whatever you can see on your notebook or a PC onto your TV screen, so you can show HD movies, play MP3 content or even use it for work stuff like Powerpoint.
