Wireless HDMI Works as Expected
Posted by: Adam7485

04/03/2014First off, you should know that I use this with a laptop to my 47" TV in my living room (~16' across). With that said, this wireless HDMI just works. It is nice and very convenient not being restricted by a long and bulky cable. I am able to access my Dish Anywhere website and stream tv with great HDMI quality. I can also do the dual monitor and have TV streaming on my TV and browse or do work on my laptop screen without any interruption.
My four star rating has to do with my only gripe (which is probably my own nit-picky-ness), that the transmitter needs its own power source (which is why this comes with two AC power adapters AND a USB cord). Didn't think about that when ordering it and none of the pictures or descriptions state that, but makes total sense after seeing it. The HDMI port of your laptop doesn't double as a power source like a USB port does (at least my laptop doesn't or I'm too dumb to figure that out right now). I ended up using the USB cord and plugged it in the transmitter and wrapped it under my laptop to the USB on the other side. I can still use the laptop on my lap or the ottoman, and the "problem" is strictly aesthetics. Five stars in my opinion would be being able to plug in the transmitter without an additional power source like you can with a mouse and keyboard.
I also noticed that both the transmitter and receiver can get a little too warm for my taste, warmer than what my laptop produces, but I suppose both are working hard to transmit HD quality picture.
I have seen other reviews on other sites like Amazon and such, and I agree that the price is a bit on the higher side, for right now anyway. Remember when HDMI cords were outrageously expensive? Oh the price you will pay for a new innovated product.

01/29/2014I got my Nyrius Aries last week and LOVE IT! I have to say I was skeptical at first with the concept of getting 1080p quality without interruption over wireless. Before getting this, I have been just using my HDMI cable to broadcast video from my laptop to my 55” Samsung LED (very annoying having to stay close to TV to plug/unplug each time). My laptop has built in widi, but I had heard so many bad reviews about the quality of widi, that I didn’t want to waste my money. Installation was very fast, no driver to install - plug and play. I did need an HDMI to Mini HDMI adapter for my laptop (which I already had), so I was good to go! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it! Amazing quality! And since I work from home, I have even started working on the couch now because of the high quality and zero pixilation - I'm no longer tied down to a cord.
