Works Well For Audio Files & Web - Not Much Else

S. Rudge "Always Even Steven", Amazon
26 October 2012
  • Summary: We attached the VEEBEAM HD to a television and tried it with several different functions which we thought would most commonly be used with a device like this. Set up was simple and can be done pretty much instruction free. The unit itself is small and could be transported easily. Once everything was connected, we had the computer placed anywhere from 5 to 10 feet away but could not leave the room with the receiver in it without loss of signal.

Not Quite The Answr

  • 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.

Good only for specific purposes

Brian Klein "zarzak", Amazon

  • Summary: The veebeam does what it says it will do, but only just. I would say that its very limited in its appeal and use. Read on for more. Veebeam says that their product is good for viewing streaming video with, and it is in a limited sense. I had my veebeam hooked up via hdmi to my tv, and was streaming from a windows 7 laptop about 10 feet away from the tv (you really need to be in the same room for the veebeam to work).

Performs ALMOST as it says it does.

  • Summary: First off, this product is truly remarkable as well as others of its kind that do the same thing. The ease of setup is remarkably easy. You have two options, desktop view and player view. I really wanted to have an extended desktop to play my movies and still work. Instead, this plays off of its own player view. Basically, you continue working on your desktop as you would, and the movie that you player with the Veebeam player shows up on the TV.

It's OK, but I'm not totally convinced

MintMeister, Amazon
15 July 2013
  • 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.

A real help - now a bit of a nuisance!

D. G. Long, Amazon
28 June 2011
  • Summary: The product is a real help it does what it says however it is a little bit more complicated than the literature makes out, a couple of examples. The movie files that the in built player will play seem to be a bit hit and miss, this all seems dependent on what codecs you have on your machine. Also I dropped one AVI file into the player and it worked, then the next AVI file did not work, so a bit confusing.

A new HD beamer

Simon Meller, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: I have been looking for a 1920 x 1080 HD wireless beamer to transmit photos & videos from my computer across a big room to a 50 inch plasma. This gizmo looked neat and affordable. It came the next day and it took quite a bit of time to get the settings optimised, but the support on Veebeam's chat line was excellent. I am now very pleased with the HD quality on the big screen for still photographs.

  • Summary: Love the Idea (pricy for what it is) but so far its been very unreliable, last week we had no sound, so did an update, now it keeps loosing itself, have to restart computer , restart veebeam etc. When it works it's great. I have a new windows 7 dell.
