Seems a cracking product, not too sure about the price, but if it gets rid of a load of wires, maybe its worth the money. I am certainly considering it

It looks like it only does a reasonable speed at 3 metres, use a cable??

The Amazon reviews look quite good, so I don't know how data speed and and image quality will be affected...ie how much data is needed to transmit a 1080p image per second ?
So it seems a strange thing to mention in the blurb :-)

looks ok, but expensive

Been trying to find something like this for a while, but no-one seemed to know what i meant. :thumbsup:

Poor review though:-

Surely it wont output a HD signal at 1080p to your tv?!

I actually have a Panasonic wireless projector that would work with any laptop/PC wireless card and use that to display the image. When it did work, it was quite cool, but as it used the wireless card, it stopped you being able to connect to the internet and projector at the same time...d'oh

Of the 3 main reviews on the page, 1 has only seen a demo and doesn't have the product, and another works for the company so no suprise he gave it 5 stars!!!

"I'v just waisted 5 hours of my life trying to make this thing working and it calims on the box "EASY link your laptop to your tv wirelessly"!! You people must be crazy putting in the market such an unfinished product and it also very expensive!!"

"I saw this reviewed on Click. They weren't overly impressed, but even their review was overly positive. I am very disappointed. I bought 2, one for me, and one as a gift. 2 different pc's, 2 different locations. Both with the same disappointing results. Very jumpy picture, and it kept dropping the connection. Wait for a better version, or stick with your cables."

"I purchased this item from Amazon which arrived quickly.
At present using the hdmi cable I have sound and only the desktop picture.I am still trying to sort out the graphics card so that I will be able to see what I want to see.I did have a vga type cable and my sony tv has the input for that and I did get a picture but no sound.To get sound I had to plug the sound cable into an amplifier system.No cables for attaching are supplied apart from the main adaptor and I emailed the q-waves help desk and they did nor bother to reply,so for that reason only one star."

Personally, for the range this gives, I can't see why you wouldn't just use a cable!



"There is no simpler way of getting Internet Video, Games, Music and Photos in Hi Definition on your TV set than wirelessly from your laptop/PC."

Well there is, use a cable, much simpler/cheaper!!!


"Imagine BBC iPlayer on your TV - well now it's possible!"

I've had iPlayer on my tv for years, and for alot less!

I just sent mine back last week, even qwaves support team cud not get it to work via my vista os laptop, they even updated the firmware for me to install to the dongles but it made no difference, had my money refunded after about 3 or 4 days, so cold from me!

About 3-3.5Gb/s uncompressed (e.g. HDMI/DVI) . USB maxes out at about 240Mb/s so either the image quality will suffer or it gets your CPU working to compress it.

Thought USB was 480 which this claims to be at 10 foot? Or is it 240 each way in which case this is very misleading too!

So Overall HDUK users a thumbs down for the product, although there seems a lot of the reviews (more than 50%) seem that the product is quite a good idea and give it a 3 to 5 star rating. The ones that have given it less are those that could not get it to work for what ever reason

I think the price of this "TYPE" of product maybe just about right, but will probably need to make some further improvements to be acceptable to the masses.
:oops:
