Can you say latency?

Yea Verily, Amazon
1 February 2013
  • 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.

Not great

S. Reader "scibarfan", Amazon
15 May 2012
  • 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.

Worked with Windows, but not MacBook Pro (10.6)

William Stephens, Amazon

  • Summary: We tried this in our office to avoid having to sit near the screen or messing with cables. This worked fine with the Windows laptops users. However, we're 80% Apple with MacBook Pros running 10.6. We couldn't get a single one of these laptops to work with this hardware.

Not super smooth playback.

Julie R. Neidlinger "From the Lone Prairie", Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: Returned this product. Easy to setup -- fairly plug-and-play. Played a variety of files through the player. However, the playback image wasn't as clear as I thought it should be, and there was the slightest jerking to streaming Netflix and Hulu. The only good video play back was through the VeeBeam player software (which played my AVI files no problem), but again, the picture wasn't clear. It reminded me of watching a VHS tape. Which is fine, if you don't mind that.

Disappointed Mac user

D Posner, Amazon
9 November 2012
  • Summary: I would really like to be able to use this with my Macbook Pro, but it is not compatible. Tried to speak to Veebeam about the issue and they didn't even bother to get back to me. Item works fine with my PC desktop.

VeeBeam Disapoints

Mark Twain, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: The Veebeam promises a lot but fails to deliver. It does what is says it will. it can stream your desktop to your TV via USB. Unfortunately it does it with a great deal of delay and with a lot of glitches and lag in the picture is does ultimately display. the image you get is unacceptable patchy and lagy. furthermore you don't get enough range on it to justify the lag.
