Excerpt: The WiCast was born as a result of efforts to reduce the amount of clutter and wires required to connect and stream content via devices. This ‘wireless’ device enables users to use a transmitter – receiver combination to view content from their laptop, Blu-ray player or camcorder on an HDTV or a projector; all while eliminating direct contact using wires. This may sound like a lot of fun, but is it as functional as recreational? Let’s find out.
Summary: For a first-generation product, the Asus WiCast got nearly everything right: It's easy to set up, has excellent range, and beams 1080p video without any noticeable delay. It blows the doors off Intel's Wireless Display technology, which can only handle 720p, is plagued by latency, and won't stream DRM-protected content. The one benefit that WiDi has over this product is that it's integrated into notebooks.
Pros: Easy setup, Plays any HD content, Excellent range, No latency make it good enough for gaming
