    Don’t waist your time and money

    I bought this in the store, brought it home to have professionally installed and both antennas were missing. I bring back the next day and the Best Buy staff in Fargo are by far the best I’ve dealt with. However, after exchanging it for a new one with all the parts and once again have this one professionally installed. The box states that this is good for up to 150 feet and when he hooked this up to our XBox which was no more than 6 feet away from the TV we realized that this was a terrible purchase. The reaction time delay from TV to the XBox was horrible and it has nothing to do with my WiFi as the signal was very strong and there was no interference whatsoever. I understand that this product can be hooked up by someone who is not a professional as it’s pretty straight forward but I spent the $ to have it done by someone who Does this daily and to say this is a terrible product is a huge understatement. I Would give negative stars but because of staff at my local Best Buy I’m giving it 2 stars.

    I purchased this product because I decided to mount my TV near the stairs instead of where the previous owners wired the surround sound. The problem was, I didn’t want to run an HDMI cable across my ceiling nor my floor since it would be crossing a common walkway. By connecting one to my surround sound and one to my tv, I was able to plug my fire stick directly into the surround sound and shoot the video straight to the tv! Only reason it doesn’t get 5 stars is because every now and then (not every day) the receiver and transmitter loose connection. That causes me to have sound, but no picture for like a minute or two until they reconnect themselves.

    I would rate this with SIX STARTS if could. I put a TV in my garage to keep up on the college and NFL games while I am tending to yard work or just working out. I move to a new house and did not want to put holes in my walls and especially break any seal between my garage and my interior living area. Saw this on the shelf and asked the salesperson about it to deconflict with another product. He mentioned that this one seemed to be selling okay. Once I got home...I have two rooms which equals two walls between DIRECTV box and my TV. I have a TV inside with an HDMI splitter...crystal clear picture and the remote even works; I can change the channel from outside in the garage and reach the DIRECTV box inside my home.

    Worked good but difficult to conceal receiver

    This product worked well with good 1080P picture quality. I reconfigured my living room which left my coax connection on a separate wall from my tv. I wanted to see if this product would work well enough to eliminate the need to install a new coax jack. It did work well with the transmitter in a closed cabinet and the receiver connected to the tv across the room, however, unless the receiver was in front of the tv in the open it had poor connection quality and would pixelate or completely disconnect frequently. If the receiver was unobstructed it worked really well with better than expected picture quality.

    Great product, buying 2 more for the office

    I bought this for our office to avoid having to go under the concrete floor, or drag a 25' hdmi cable across conference tables. It transmits hdmi audio and video with ease and has very, very minimal points in which lag is experienced. Definitely does the job, and I'll be buying 2 more to avoid cable mess in other conference rooms. The only somewhat negative aspects are the price (could be cheaper for it being a simple device) and it will not work well when transmitting audio during audioconferencing (Skype, WebEx, et al), unless the display you're connecting to is proven to be echo cancelling.

    Would be GREAT if you have no ISP WIFI

    The transmitters signal is at 5G. Which is same on ISP wireless router, 2.4&5G. My wireless laptop is only able to see 2.4g due to competing signals. At first I did not notice until I bought second Wireless HDMI setup. only later I learned, depending on who talk to, they can interfere with each other. I learned if I get meesage "waiting for signal", I unplug receiver power supply for 10-20 seconds fixes it. Its still nicer than seeing wires hanging down. Tech told me to see if moving ISP router further away from transmitter will work. Havent done that yet

    I set the units up in accordance with the enclosed instructions and although the units are approximately 25 feet apart, they some times lose sync. Both antennas are within line of sight, but if someone stand between them the signal is lost. I don't think they would operate at the 150 foot range they are supposed to be able to operate at. An other problem is the heat they generate. I measured the temp of the case on each unit and it was 135 degrees F. I remove the power cord from each unit at night and if we leave the house for an extended period,

    LED Dimmer Packs Affect these!

    I love this device it is the second that I had purchased. They work very well in environments where it can be transmitted through open space or a shortened distance through a single wall (approximately 34 feet max. through standard drywall 5 in wall). However, larger light controller/dimmer packs for small venues, cause a lot of interference, so be warned! I found out later that shielding the side of the transmitter that was facing the dimmer pack ( I used the back of a metal amp rack case) seems to eliminate the problem.

    As good as a wired connection.

    I almost paid someone to run a cable connection to our TV. This would have cost a lot more and would have put holes in our walls. I first tried the Actiontec wireless transmitter and it didn't work at all. This was the only other brand that BestBuy has in the store and it cost less. So I gave it a try. I am so happy I did. 99% of the time the picture and sound is as good as a wired connection. 1% if the time the picture may freeze for a few seconds. It's easy to set up. I highly recommend this.

    This IOGEAR - Wireless HDMI TV Connection Kit is fantastic. We had through the wall HDMI cable for our Den TV and the connection broke and there was no way to fish a new wire through the wall. Best Buy geek squad suggested the IOGEAR - Wireless HDMI TV Connection Kit - Black and it is fantastic and was no very expensive. Very happy!!

    I purchased this device for use at our church to be able to send images from a computer in our tech booth to a TV monitor on a rolling cart that would be in a variety of different places in our sanctuary. Hard-wiring the HDMI connection would have been impossible based on the usage we needed. It was so easy to configure the transmitter and receiver. The devices are about 150 ft apart in our space and it works flawlessly. We have other devices, such as IR remotes, etc., in this space and it does not interfere whatsoever.

    Great idea but does not work

    I bought two of these units. This product says it’s good up to 150 ft. Neither of the units I set up are over 20 feet (transmitter to receiver) apart. Both of these units worked for two or 3 days and then the trouble began. One day it works the next day it doesn’t , in the middle of a show the audio will drop or the signal goes completely out. Should have started with one unit but no I had to pay stupid tax on two units. Neither one works. $270.00 shot!!!!!

    Please do not buy this product or any other consumer hdmi goods from this company. This is the second model I have had in years and it never works as expected. This model has to be unplugged and cycled again for it to detect the transmitting signal. Who wants to literally unplug a device evetime to watch tv. There is no remote or button on the devices. When it’s on it works great. But that doesn’t happen often. Really bad for projection systems.

    What an incredible Video tech option!!! If you want a tv mounted in a location that doesn’t have audio/video connections, this is the gadget for you! Very easy to install and transmits a great 1080p picture over the air. Works very well 95% of the time. Every once in a while I have to reset the receiver because the pictur freezes. Even with hiccups, it’s Still worth purchasing. Running A/V lines would have cost us an arm and leg in comparison. Give it a shot!

    I have used a few other units in this price point with varied results. Each time I have used this one, it has proven to have a stable signal and minimal latency. The antenna is robust and the unit is low profile. I would certainly recommend this unit if you are looking for consistent performance while on a budget.

    I'm using this in an RV. It's transmitting from a cabinet where the satellite cable comes into the RV. I didn't want to go through the hassle of wiring cables to the new TVs location. This fit the bill. It's lost signal once. It's transmitting approximately 15 feet in direct line of site.

    The transmitter and receiver work perfectly. No lags or image degradation. It works very well to transmite pictures and HD video. It rates for 150 ft. At have it placed at 50ft with no problems. It tends to get very hot yet I used it for 7hr a day for 5 consecutive days and it continue to work like a charm.

    I fully expected to spend some time struggling to get this to work but boy was I wrong. I hooked the transmitter to the output of a Tripp-Lite 4-1 HDMI switcher, which has a TIVO Romeo, PS4, and an Amazon Fire TV box hooked to its inputs. I powered everything up and voila, it all works! No hassle, no tweaking, love it!

    Self-installing. Just take it out of the box and plug in the power and HDMI cables. Provides clear picture in an RV with no lag in image vs. sound. Unit does get quite hot so I have to unplug it when not in use as it's installed in a small cabinet area.

    Cable co. DVR plugged up on one side of the room. The TV is on the other side. Plugged in both - no issues with HDCP. Worked perfectly the first time and hasn't dropped the signal since turning it on. IR repeater works as it should. Lightweight TX and RX.
