"Finally a simple way to watch my videos on my HDTV"
17 December 2010
Pros: Simple to install. must use a video player software (vlc player is free) Plays anything that you can see on your computer screen... in so many words it turns your HDTV into a HD Computer monitor
Cons: the signal doesn't go more than 25' It will go through the wall a short distance (15' or so depending on the wall material) It you have a Netbook you won't be able to use it for anything else while your watching your video.
"Love Veebeam! So easy and the HD video is great..."

Pros: Less than 15 minutes from setting up to watch a netflix movie streaming from laptop to TV. I had my laptop and TV sitting at two opposite corners of the same room. No more wire clutters, woohooo!! Both the picture and sound worked out really well.
Cons: There is a 2 seconds delay from laptop to TV. I watched the entire movie on the TV screen and that did not bother me at all.
Cons: Distance is limited to one room and Veebeam recommends not more than 5 meters (roughly 15ft). I could not establish a connection in direct line of sight over 10 feet. Is not stable drops in and out
"Easiest way to put computer content on the big screen!"

Pros: Software installation and setup very easy ... Passed my "setup without looking at the manual" test! ... sends video, audio, pictures & slideshows, Google & Bing maps with various views, Power Point, anything ... one unit works with multiple comput
Cons: The USB dongle seems a little flimsy. (but it is a 1st generation unit)
"Yes, it really does stream your Mac or PC, and well!"

Pros: Works consistently well from anywhere in the room. 1080p video streams smoothly - no jerky movement, no audio sync issues, beautiful picture! Audio is clear - no breaks or artifacts. Sounds as if it were connected by wire.
Cons: Product is clearly a first generation - updating firmware is very unpolished. Line of sight - generally, I have only broken line of sight by cupping the USB stick with my hand.
Summary: I bought one of these units to wirelessly display a laptop screen onto a 42" HD TV. On the plus side, it was really easy to install, and I was able to get my laptop displaying on my TV in about 5 minutes from opening the box. Once the software is installed, all you need to do is plug the transmitter into a USB port on the laptop and it connects in a few seconds.
