This is a good product that does what it advertises
22 October 2014
Summary: This is a good product that does what it advertises. We use it in my office for presentations from our laptops to a large screen TV. It is easy to setup and use. The response is not instant, there is a very slight lag when dragging the mouse but for presentations it is fine. I would not game with this.
Summary: The device is very clunky. When it was connected using the desktop share there was a 2-3 second delay before the TV would respond. The picture clarity was great but the overall experience was less than desired. Also if you just happen to have someone walk in front of the laptop and block the line of site to the device the system looses connectivity and takes a while to sync back up. We are returning the item for something else.
Summary: Despite the bad reviews I took a chance, didn't roll the dice very good with this one. I ordered this for the VP of the company I work for and he wanted his computer up on his t.v. Exact measurement from t.v. to computer that is mounted on the wall was 15.6" and a direct line of site. Connection was able to make the connection but not hold it, so would black screen in and out.
Summary: I was excited that this adapter had such broad compatibility, but that comes at a real cost. The delay is sooooo slow that for any kind of interaction (i.e., move the mouse and click a button), it's unusable. Probably a a full second or more of delay between when you move the mouse and when it shows up on the screen. Even before you get to that point, though, there are headaches. Quick start guide in the box so you know how to get going? Nope. CD with drivers? Nope.
Summary: When I came across, and researched the Veebeam, it seemed like the perfect answer to connect my MacBook Pro laptop to the big-screen in the living room. As it turns out, it's not capable of sending an adequate signal from my recliner to a point 16 feet away. I have a 20' video cable that works just fine but I was trying to eliminate that extra connection. Until Veebeam can come up with a solution that works reliably beyond 20', I recommend you save your money.
Summary: This product didn't function at all like expected or advertised. The range was less than 10 feet, connecting was intermittent (if it connected at all). When it would function, it would lose connection after 2-3 minutes. You might say this was a defective unit, but I bought two of them and both functioned the same way. Very disappointed.
Installs resource consuming files on start-up, even if not using product.

Summary: I did not purchase this device. My brother owns it and I downloaded the software from the Veebeam site so I could use it on my machine too. Those few times I've borrowed the device and used it on my machine it worked. But that's only once or twice a month. Here is my review: First, there it is very difficult to contact customer service for this product. It took a ten minute Google search to find a form to use, to contact product support.
Summary: Veebeam was exceptionally easy to install and set up. It did have to be close to the tv & computer. So having to be in the same room as the computer was less than helpful. We had to use it with a laptop rather than the planned desktop. Our delay was longer than the 1 second many have reported, more like 3-5 seconds, and the streaming video keep stalling. What we really wanted this for was to watch missed tv episodes on the tv rather than on the computer.
Summary: If you have a current Macintosh model, this product is useless. No support for screen casting with OSX Lion, which is reaching end-of-Life. Maybe they are waiting for OSX Mountain Lion? Works fine on older Macs or new Macs with older Operating Systems. I created a second partition on my MacBook and Installed OSX Snow Leopard. Works fine this way but is a major inconvenience.
