    Does What It Should - With A Little Help

    I was initially unimpressed with this product just based off the reviews regarding the actual extender IR wand NOT sticking to the devices with the included foam stickers. However, based on shopping around, this was a consistent issue with most products of this nature in that the adhesives are for the most part, useless. More on that at the end. As for the product itself, it does what it should. I have the main IR located just under the lip of my wall mounted tv and the extended wands in their respective places on my cable box and Xbox One. The range does just fine with a Harmony 700 remote in all areas of the living room and does not have to be "straight on". There is no lag or delay and it's a great thing for the Xbox One where I had the most trouble. I had to be in the "sweet zone" with my remote whenever I watched a movie, You Tube, etc. Since this purchase and installation, it's quick, responsive and no lag. Problem solved. As for the installation of the extended wands. I had used strong double sided tape on the wand and device (after a good alcohol wipe cleaning) and within 2 days, it separated. Frustrated, I turned to ole Google audio visual forums and found a very inexpensive and solid mounting solution. Glue gun. I initially thought you had to be freaking crazy to glue gun this thing to a device, but I had one laying around and thought before I try duck tape, jk, I would try this method (which is apparently quite common in the world of audio/visual installation). I removed all the tape and foam from the wand, put a dab on the wand and quickly put in place on the device. I was worried that it might ruin the finish or screen and found out quickly on a misplacement, that removal was quick and easy, but once properly put in place, solid and sturdy. It don't not damage device, but won't adhere as well if you wait to long and glue hardens. It's a boom boom, dab and stick in place thing and totally worth it. You can get a glue gun almost anywhere for less than $5 and even if I didn't have one, I would have bought one just for the installation attempt. I did not give this 5 stars, because you shouldn't have to purchase a product and then "fix it". However, the fix is minimal, much more efficient and the product works great (with some elbow grease/glue).

    Don't waste your money. Works ok from about 4 feet, anything over that is questionable. Junk.

    So, I purchased this because my soundbar blocks the sensor on my tv. It was super easy to install and I've rigged it to where you can't event see the device at all. You'd never know it was there! It also works like a charm. If you have the same problem or certainly need to have multiple devices in closed cabinets, I wouldn't hesitate to save a buck and pick up one of these.

    Terrible item with limited use

    This item was far too expensive for such a short sighted concept. I found significant lag, short cables and over limited use outside a media cabinet located near the TV, which negates the purpose.

    Everything was easy to hook up worked great. Just make sure if you hide your amp and other products that get hot in a closed cabinet that you do have ventilation, potentially a small fan.

    Not worth the effort

    I hooked up the extender kit and when I was ready to use it. It only works when remote is less than 20 inches from the eye. It works but when you have to come right up to IR eye was not what I expected.

    Extender does the job

    Extender operates as expected. The little sticky circles that hold eyes on equipment are not strong enough. After several attempts, heavy double sided tape did the trick.
