The ScreenBeam Pro Wireless Display Receiver allows you to mirror or extend whatever is on your smartphone, tablet, or laptop display onto your HDTV.

Simply connect the Receiver to your HDTV via the HDMI interfac,e and enjoy your compatible device screen display on the HDTV from the comfort of your couch.
Pros: Easy way to stream from device to TV with out the hassle of cables!
Cons: None that I can note ... The one thing is that I am having problems is finding a WiDi dongle for my PC to test out PC to tv... But other than that it works great phone, tablet to TV

Doesn't hold up to claims
Pros: Small, inexpensive. Ok for an extended desktop for relatively still actions such as browsing the internet or spreadsheets.
Cons: Jittery playback, lagged sound, not good for video, games, or other "movement" on displays. Poor actiontec technical and customer service.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this device to pair with my brand new, ultra high performance [Intel core i7, dual Samsung 840 SSDs in RAID 0, NVidia GeForce gtx 670 graphics with 2GB dedicated video mem, 8GB high perf RAM [2x4 sticks for dual channel], Intel AC wireless at 866Mbs, etc.] so I could broadcast HD movies from my laptop to my TV without having to plus in HDMI cables and using a wireless keyboard. While setup was pretty easy once all the current software, drivers, and firmware were added; video and games both display lagged and jittery video and audio which appears to be dropped frames and latent audio streaming. I tried troubleshooting on my own, increasing the buffer in MP, perf tuning my WiFi settings, etc. to no prevail. I then tried working with Actiontec technical service who was no help and blamed it on wireless interference. None of my other wireless streaming devices exhibit any lag or dropped data and I have also used wireless sniffing tools to 'rate' and detect any interference coming out at 100% clear connectivity. All the while the video and audio play perfectly smooth on my laptop even when duplicating screens. Also, there is no power switch and if your setup supports HDMI power control like mine does so I don't have to turn on 3-4 devices each time I watch TV, this device keeps your TV on ALL THE TIME, or until you unplug it. Poor manufacturer service, poor product performance, skip it.
