This review is from: NETGEAR Push2TV Wireless Display Adapter PTV3000-100NAS Wireless Interface
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.
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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very pleased with this product. As indicated by other reviewers - the 1st and most important activity is to update the ASUS bios/drivers; load Windows security patches and upgrade to Windows 8.1. For the price - really cost effective. This works just as well for normal user tasks as the Microsoft Surface Pro that I evaluated/used as an IT manager at work.
Cons: None noted.
Other Thoughts: I could not immediately get the device to work with a Netgear PTV3000 device (project to remote LED screen). This cannot be evaluated as a con - there's no indication from Netgear that it is specifically supported. There may be further technological tricks to invoke to make it work.
It looks like a Bluetooth keyboard with touchpad will be needed to work satisfactorily. This is a matter of personal preference; others may be quite satisfied with the on-screen keyboard. I'm going to get the ASUS supported device as opposed to a generic Bluetooth keyboard with touchpad.
Pros: For the price paid and with a rebate - this is nice widget. It works as described in other reviews. It has an older version of Android. Touch sensitivity is low - I've had better success using a pointer with a soft rubber tip. My first experience with an Android device. I was pleased to find free e-books with Google. The reader works well enough - I'm happy as happy can be to be reading Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues under the sea.
Cons: Screen touch sensitivityREAD FULL REVIEW
