2 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

Pros: Easy to use. Easy to update the firmware.

Cons: Not very reliable. Disconnects randomly. Very inconsistent.

Other Thoughts: The little gadget works, but I wish I had bought a different brand.

4 out of 5 eggsI'd Still Rather Plug In

Pros: - Easy to update device firmware
- Nice small form-factor
- Low Latency*
- Easy to connect to**

Cons: - Box is light and gets moved by HDMI cable
- Shiny top is prone to fingerprints
- About a 10 foot range

Other Thoughts: First off, it is a great idea with decent execution. Unfortunately, I don't think the technology is there yet. Supported devices are few and far between, and even if you get one, it can be quite difficult to make work. That being said, the device itself isn't too bad. It is easy to update the firmware with good instructions included, and it has a small form-factor so it can fit just about anywhere. My complaints are that it is too light which means the cables lift the box, and that the top shiny surface is a fingerprint magnet.

I would think that one of these would be utterly perfect in a home theater setup. Stick the box by your television, connect to it with your laptop or tablet, and stream a movie without ever having to plug a cable in. The problem is the range. I managed to be able to get about 10 feet away before the image and audio started severely stuttering. 10 feet is too small a range for a home theater setup. It would still work if you ran a cable and stuck the thing under an end table next to your couch.

*While the device has a low latency at close range, as you get farther away, the latency seems to exponentially increase. At about 2 feet, my laptop and display were on the same second, with less than a half second delay. At about 10 feet, the display updated about every second, which makes it utterly useless for doing anything beyond maybe a photo slideshow.

**I say this device is easy to connect to, and it is - after you get your device working. My phone connected right up and worked immediately. My laptop on the other hand had some issues with Widi working. After about two hours of trying to get Widi working on my laptop, I finally succeeded and now it simply takes a swipe and 3 taps to connect.

Overall, this is a decently solid product that the device support and technology just isn't quite there for yet.

3 out of 5 eggsMaybe not ready for professional primetime

Pros: Works on devices explicitly indicated by documentation. No luck on getting the device to work on anything else - even devices that others have been successful with.

Setup/configuration on Windows 8.1 devices is straightforward.

My wife's new Dell Inspiron with Windows 8.1 - works. I could not get it to work on a Microsoft Surface Pro; my older Dell Studio; an even older Dell Inspiron Mini running Windows 8.1 and a recently purchased ASUS VivoTab ME400 10.1" tablet. Once again, cannot be too critical about the collection of other devices - none are Widi and all seem to fall short in some sense for Miricast compatibility.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My impetus to buy this to start was the idea of broadcasting the smaller Microsoft Surface Pro or ASUS Vivotab screen to the LCD TV in the family room. Not required - just an interesting thing to experiment with. More of a technological demonstration with possible use at my job. This still may be possible but compatibility will not be general - this will only work on specific hardware. At least for setup on Windows 8.1 devices; the process is straightforward.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: I can show things wirelessly!

Cons: There is a learning curve, you have to update the firmware and drivers on your device. But once you get it all down, it works great.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Work as Expected

Pros: Connects Easily.

Cons: Does not stream video very well. The video and audio skip often to where it is too annoying to watch. Even though this device runs on Miracast (which is supposed to work with all Android devices after version 4.2), only the deices listed in their specs are supported. The device list is very short. If you don't have one of these devices, don't bother. When I contacted Netgear support, they said my device was not supported and would not offer any more help. Here are the supported devices: http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/23982.

Manufacturer Response:

You can reach us at newegg@netgear.com.

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Kindle HDX

Pros: Links to Kindle HDX 8.9 with no problem. Have device hooked to my Yamaha receiver, so HDMI audio code out stereo.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsCAUTION

Pros: Easy to set up.

Cons: Does not work well with any device other than the ones listed in the specs, even though they all run basically the same software. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (Similar to the devices they have listed as compatible) and all videos skip often. Firmware is up to date and tech support has no fix.

1 out of 5 eggsSruface Pro 8.1 + PTV3000 doesn't work

Pros: Small. Great concept/idea.

Cons: -Doesn't work.
-Netgear claiming ignorance about this not working with Windows 8.1.
-$60 brick
-Can I give 0 eggs please?

Other Thoughts: Spent hours with Netgear support regarding not being able to get a fully patched Surface Pro (Windows 8.1) to connect to the PTV3000. The response was classic!

"Updating the Surface Pro from 8 to 8.1 may or may not work with the PTV3000 since the 8.1 is not pre-installed on the Surface Pro.."

In other words...Windows Update breaks our stuff.
Lame.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous,

We'd like to work with you further on this, as the PTV3000 is compatible with the Surface Pro. Some users have had luck with enabling Airplane Mode then disabling it; this seems to be a quirk in Windows that resets the adapter and allows the PTV3000 to work properly. If that doesn't help, please get in touch with us at newegg@netgear.com, with as many details as you can about how it isn't working and any troubleshooting steps you have tried. We want to help!

Regards,

NETGEAR Team

3 out of 5 eggsnot there yet

Pros: none yet

Cons: won't connect to multiple devices

Other Thoughts: I have a Sony Vaio that I use with the old PTV1000. It works great. I bought the PTV3000 because I also have an AT&T HTC One with Android 4.3 and a Kindle Fire HDX 8.9. I hooked up the device and updated the firmware. Now the laptop can't even see the device. My HTC One sees it and connects for about 5 seconds then drops and my Kindle Fire sees it and tries to connect but doesn't go any further. I tried downgrading the firmware, but none of my laptops can see it's SSID anymore. I just read that I can reset the factory defaults with a paper clip in a button on the bottom of the device. I will try that and start over. Very frustrating.
